Donny Kendal; Isaac Orr, Policy Fellow at the Center of the American Experiment; and Justin Haskins bring you episode #175 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.

The trio start off the show talking a bit about Justin and Donny's LibertyCon presentation titled "Socialism Is Evil." The 50-minute presentation was well received and broadcasted on CSPAN.

Donny then welcomes on Lennie Jarratt, Project Manager for the Center on Transforming Education, to talk about School Choice Week. Lennie talks about School Choice Week, Child Safety Accounts, and his outlook for 2019 in terms of education reform.

Donny, Isaac, and Justin talk about an article out of Wyoming titled "Wyoming voters could decide whether to increase the state's wind tax." Donny his other co-hosts whether they are in favor of the tax, whether its justifiable, and what the reasoning is for the tax.

They then talk about an article from the Tenth Amendment Center titled "North Dakota Bill Would Set Foundation for a 'Gun Rights Sanctuary State.'" In defiance of past and potentially future federal gun control legislation, North Dakota is considering legislation that would ban local and state agents from cooperating with their federal counterparts. The trio discuss the concept of state nullification and more.

The last topic of discussion comes from a PJMedia article titled "Oregon Could Become the First State to Require In-Home Surveillance of Newborn Babies." The trio discuss the truth behind the headline and whether this type of idea poses a threat to individual liberty.
