In today's edition of The Heartland Daily Podcast, we join the Managing Editor of Budget & Tax News, Jesse Hathaway as he speaks with Dr. Brad Rodu. Rodu is a Senior Fellow for The Heartland Institute as well as a researcher for the University of Louisville. Rodu and Hathaway discuss the FDA's missing data regarding tobacco harm reductions. 

In the podcast, Rodu urges the Food & Drug Administration to "show their work." Rodu says taxpayer-funded studies are being kept from the public, as government agencies selectively release sound-bites to media outlets and spin the story towards preferred narratives.
