Heartland’s Donald Kendal, Justin Haskins, and Jim Lakely are joined by Isaac Orr in episode 255 of the In The Tank Podcast. Much debate has taken place over how the country should respond to the continuing Coronavirus outbreak. Countries around the world have used different strategies to varying success. The ITT crew takes a look at a new Heritage Foundation report that analyses approaches of 10 countries around the world. In addition, they dissect an fluff-piece article from the Washington Post about the Chinese Communist Party.
