The Grave Threat of an Impending Rail Strike on the U.S. Economy (Audio: Podcast)
In the face of a threatened freight rail strike, just as the country is pulling out of supply chain problems, IPI records a special timely podcast episode with experts on the issue: Daniel Ogden, Professor of Global Trade and Supply Chain at Baylor University, and Jerry Glass of F+H Solutions Group, a management and labor consulting organization.

How Wokeness Sucks All the Fun out of Life (Audio: Podcast)
IPI President Tom Giovanetti and Commentary Magazine Associate Editor Noah Rothman discuss Noah's recent book "The Rise of the New Puritans: Fighting Back Against Progressives' War on Fun." Lefties used to be the "anything goes, don't judge me" crowd, but today the progressive woke left politicizes everything and sucks all the fun out of food, sports, dating and sex, even gardening! Noah explains how and why this change happened, how it affects American society, and how it's harming everything from how we eat and play to how we love and form relationships. It's a great read and a great discussion
Is a 25th Amendment Removal in Joe Biden's Future? (Audio: Podcast)
IPI Resident Scholar discusses his recent piece in The Hill raising questions about President Biden's obvious slippage with IPI President Tom Giovanetti. Because there is little to no partisan advantage to either party to remove Biden, raising the question isn't about partisan politics but rather is about the good of the nation, and of the free world. And it's not as if a 25th Amendment removal wasn't almost a constant topic in the media during the Trump administration. Double-standard much?

The ultimate podcast
This is the best thing on the whole Internet
Partisan hack podcast. Complete trash.
Parsing through all the lies and nonsense while working in public policy is a tough job and we do not need unethical trash like this adding to the noise. This podcasts is almost entirely devoid of facts, chock full of misinformation and empty rhetoric, and add nothing useful to the public policy arena other than trying to sway minds for partisan political outcomes. In the most recent episode concerning whether Hillary Clinton broke the law they simply made a reference to the Espionage act and said they think she broke it. No details. No actual discussion of what the act actually says. No legal evaluation of the elements of the act she violated. Nothing. Just said she broke the espionage act and then went on a tirade about how she will never be prosecuted under the President because the party won’t allow it. Political hacks and amateurs. These kind of unethical dirtbags and partisan propagandists make me sick.
