John Nothdurft and Donny Kendal present episode #127 of the In The Tank Podcast. This weekly podcast features (as always) interviews, debates, and roundtable discussions that explore the work of think tanks across the country. The show is available for download as part of the Heartland Daily Podcast every Friday. Today’s podcast features work from the American Conservative Union, the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, and the Independent Institute.

Before moving on to think tank and policy related topics, Donny and John talk about the 2018 Winter Olympics, the responses Donny got from his overpopulation article, and North Korea.

Better Know a Think Tank

Donny and John are joined by Dan Schneider, Executive Director at the American Conservative Union. Dan joins the show to talk a bit about his organization as well as the upcoming CPAC convention which will be taking place between February 21 - 24. 

Policybot Featured Work of the Week

This week, the featured work comes from the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE). The report titled "The 10 Worst Colleges for Free Speech: 2018" highlights colleges and universities across the country that have made news lately suppressing the free speech of their students and professors. 

Supplemental article: "Arrests of Offensive Facebook and Twitter posts soar in London." 

More Think Tank Works

To end the show on a bright note, Donny and John play a clip from the Independent Institute's popular #LoveGov viral video series. These award-winning, short, comedic videos are great and perfect for sharing on social media.
