    Georgism: What is it and how could it help?

    Tired of our current tax structure? I visit with my friend Joseph Addington about Georgism. We nerd out over what it is, what problems it could solve, and possible areas of application.

    On the Recent AP Report: Interview with CD Cunningham

    On the Recent AP Report: Interview with CD Cunningham

    Content Warning: This episode discusses sexual abuse.

    I sit down with my friend, CD Cunningham to discuss his recent article regarding the associated press article about a case of abuse. We talk about the options for policies and the pros and cons of each option.

    It seems too often people rush, with their heart in the right place, to conclusions. When it comes to something so tragic, perhaps taking some time to think allows greater clarity. I learned some things in this episode, and I hope you do, too.

    On the Recent AP Report: Interview with Jennifer Roach

    On the Recent AP Report: Interview with Jennifer Roach

    Content Warning: This episode discusses sexual abuse.   

    Jennifer Roach is a friend, and also a therapist and clerical abuse survivor. When I read the recent AP article about a case of abuse, I knew that it was something I needed to learn about and understand better.   

    My goal on the podcast has always been to tackle hard issues well. This is among the hardest I've tackled. I think it's good to think through and process--espcially if there are things we can do to make things safer.  If you are looking for an apologetic, this probably isn't it. At the same time, if you're looking for a condemnation, this isn't it either. In fact, one of the things I'm frustrated by is that everyone has focused more on validating their own private narrative rather than keeping their focus on the victims in this case, and how to keep them safe.   

    That doesn't mean I don't have bias: I'm a faithful and unapologetic member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and I love my church tremendously. You'll feel that come through. Ultimately, though, my primary goal is to talk about hard issues well.

    Brad Wilcox' Recent Comments

    Brad Wilcox' Recent Comments

    I get together with some friends to discuss Brad Wilcox's recent comments--and the strong response they received. We talk about intent and circumstances, but also the reason the comments were hard for so many.

    Note: we tried to get this right. I guarantee we didn't manage perfectly. A group of thoughtful people talking it out helped me though. There were some really good moments and insights, and if nothing else, I think we modeled what it looks like to grapple with something hard in as faithful a way as possible. That sounds me as worth doing.
