    “Fact-Free Journalism with Mark Tapscott and Brian McNicoll”

    How the distinctions between “opinion” and “news” have become fainter and fainter.

    Why the Society for Professional Journalists no longer plays the role of trusted guardian.

    And more.

    "When Politicans Panicked" with John Tamny

    "When Politicans Panicked" with John Tamny

    Talking with John Tamny about his upcoming book "When Politicians Panicked: The New Coronavirus, Expert Opinion, and a Tragic Lapse of Reason." His premise, and I agree, is that experts aren't the answer to crisis, they are the crisis.  What was needed at the onset of the virus was leadership wise enough to let sensible Americans figure out how to protect themselves.

    It’s Saturday in September and there’s no Big Ten football being played today.

OK, this is epic.

In 1972 Bill Theodore Walton III led the UCLA Bruins to not one, but two NCAA Championships. It was a stunning victory that placed him on the map as one of the greatest basketball players of the 20th century.
Bill Walton of the Bill Walton Show is not Bill Walton the III though. However, he is the equivalent of an NCAA-no-NBA superstar in deep political commentary. Walton is truly a slam dunk for anyone interested in serious and enlightened discussions on topics from foreign policy to domestic issues and everywhere in between.
You’re committing a major personal foul if you are not listening to this show. It’s is one of the best, if not the best one out there right now.

Thoughtful discussions on real topics

Bill takes on issues with guests who have firsthand knowledge of their subjects. For about 45 minutes they go into great detail. You can expect to learn much that you will not find elsewhere. Highly recommended for all who curious to know more about headlines that are poorly explained elsewhere.

This is some bootleg Bill Walton most people didn’t come for.
