In The Tank (Ep216) – American Greatness, A Cold Civil War, Powering Our World

Heartland’s Jim Lakely takes over as host this week for Episode 216 of the In The Tank Podcast and interviews Ben Boychuk, managing editor of the conservative journal American Greatness and a fellow at the Center on American Greatness. They discuss the founding mission of the site, and how they came to embrace the policies of Donald Trump before just about any national organization or publication. Jim and Ben, a long-time friend, also talk about whether America is close to an inevitable decline, whether we really are in the middle of a Cold Civil War, and the best book Ben has read in the past year.

The second half of the podcast is Jim’s interview with Jason Isaac of the Texas Public Policy Foundation, recorded live at last week’s State Policy Network annual meeting in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Jason talks about his project, called “Life: Powered,” a comprehensive effort to educate the public about the importance of a reliable (read: powered by fossil fuels) energy grid in America.
