Heartland's Donald Kendal, Justin Haskins, and Jim Lakely are joined by Isaac Orr in episode 254 of the In The Tank Podcast. It appears as though Joe Biden picked his VP and it is Kamala Harris. The ITT crew dissects the pick and ponders the question: “why Kamala?”
Later, they talk about the Teachers Unions’ threat of “safety strikes.” Should conservatives be pushing for kids to go back to school? Or should we use this as an opportunity to push for School Choice options? And last, the ITT crew discusses a policy proposal that is getting more attention – the federal jobs guarantee.
Christina Herrin, director of Free to Choose Medicine, discusses the impacts of government regulation limiting treatment options for COVID-19 patients with Joseph Brewer, M.D.
Doctors are advocating for patient freedom and the right for doctors and patients to have the freedom to choose medicines that might save their lives. Currently, federal red tape is creating a barrier to treatment, and is limiting the freedom doctors have to treat their patients.

Dave Racer, MLitt, warns that the U.S. health care system is a recession away from collapsing the private health insurance market.
Many politicians say it is time for government to take over. Instead, Dave Racer (DaveRacer.com) shows how to connect the dots among the five key health care elements: patients, employers, providers (physicians, hospitals, and other providers), payers, and government.
Dave describes a new, patient-friendlier marketplace, one in which the patient will drive the market, demanding competitive pricing with improved quality and outcomes. In this new marketplace, secrecy in pricing will be eliminated, patients will choose their providers instead of the insurance company, physicians will be able to go independent, hospital prices will fall, and new insurance companies will enter the market. And more, much more.
As COVID-19 continues to surge across the population, many Americans are finding they lack the right to try medicines that could potentially save their lives. Kris Held, M.D. joins the show to discuss why patients deserve the opportunity to take medicines that can save their lives. Specifically, Held discusses hydroxychloroquine and all the benefits it offers to COVID-19 patients.

But what is “cancel culture?” At what point do we cross over from boycotts and criticism to “cancel culture?”

Michael J. A. Robb, M.D. joins Free to Choose Medicine Director Christina Herrin to discuss COVID-19. Their conversation focuses on patient rights during the pandemic.

Heartland's Donald Kendal, Jim Lakely, and The Center for the American Experiment’s Isaac Orr are joined by Michael Shellenberger in episode 250 of the In The Tank Podcast.
Shellenberger is on the show to talk about his "controversial" new book "Apocalypse Never: Why Environmental Alarmism Hurts Us All." The book destroys the climate alarmist narrative that the world is coming to an end and that wind and solar are the future of energy in the United States. He also discusses how climate alarmism has become the new secular religion that he once observed, and his journey to the side of reason, science, and realism.
