    EP97: Let Consumers Chose and We All Win (w/ Congressman Larry Bucshon)

    EP97: Let Consumers Chose and We All Win (w/ Congressman Larry Bucshon)

    This week, we've got a healthy batch of self-promotion and an amazing legislative guest. C'mon now, that's what we're best at!

    First, Yaël rides solo and gives some updates on the two COP events: COP26 on climate change and COP9 that could change laws on vaping! Then it's all about inflation and how we crypto will solve many of these issues.

    INTERVIEW: U.S. Rep. Larry Bucshon (R-Indiana) joins Consumer Choice Radio to discuss infrastructure spending, vaccine mandates, plastic bans, healthcare costs, and how we can improve our healthcare system.

    (full video here)
    The Biden Infrastructure Plan is not ready for primetime
    A doctor's thoughts on why the federal vaccine mandate isn't helpful
    Government mandates will harm workforce numbers
    The utility of man-made chemicals (PFAS) and why we should use science to evaluate which to regulate and ban
    Democrats often don't want amendments added to their bills
    Increasing healthcare transparency and consumers wanting free markets to drive down prices
    The folly of allowing healthcare insurance to drive prices up. We need more competition and consumer choice
    Reimbursement cuts for Medicare and Medicaid, and the debt limit. We don't fund the government correctly

    Then in our third segment, we play the audio from David Clement's testimony at the New York State Assembly on the dealer franchise laws that make it harder for consumers to buy electric vehicles. Full video here. 

    Broadcast on Consumer Choice Radio on November 13, 2021.

    EP96: Climate Class Upgrade (ConsEUmer Podcast Joint Release w/ Bill Wirtz)

    EP96: Climate Class Upgrade (ConsEUmer Podcast Joint Release w/ Bill Wirtz)

    This week we're putting together a simultaneous (joint) release with our colleague Bill Wirtz on his podcast ConsEUmer.

    First, Yaël and David discuss the free speech case of Canadian comedian Mike Ward and his victory in the Supreme Court. Then we evaluate the election results across Virginia and New Jersey, pointing to a real downvote on the Biden admin and the progressive class.

    Then, bringing on Bill, we discuss the Climate Change Conference (CCC — see what I did there?) in Glasgow, known as COP26. Will they embrace nuclear? What about the role of technological progress and innovation? Or does it all come down to cash?

    Broadcast on Consumer Choice Radio on November 6, 2021.

    EP95: I'm comfortable doing nothing (w/ Nathaniel Erskine-Smith)

    EP95: I'm comfortable doing nothing (w/ Nathaniel Erskine-Smith)

    Yael and David reunited! And it feels so...

    First up, we catch up on the crazy reconciliation and infrastructure bills in the US Senate and the wonkery you didn't know you needed.

    After the interview (below) wraps up, we talk about Donald Trump's new social media network, Mastadon, the Facebook conundrum, and what is happening to cable news.

    INTERVIEW: Canadian MP Nathaniel Erskine-Smith

    David interviews Beaches East York MP Nathaniel Erskine-Smith. They chat about finding common ground with the opposition, polarized politics, and what’s next on the agenda for harm reduction in Canada.

    David and Nathaniel then both agree that there shouldn’t be an excise tax on non-alcoholic beer, and that the cannabis act needs to be reformed to be more patient and consumer-friendly.

    Broadcast on Consumer Choice Radio on October 30, 2021.
