    I didn’t know who Dallas Sonnier was, but I listened anyway — and I was glad I did!

    It’s a great podcast:  turns out there are a lot of smart and funny guys on the staff of the Heartland Institute.

    BTW, Dallas Sonnier is the producer of notable films such as Bone Tomahawk, Brawl in Cell Block 99, and Dragged Across Concrete, among many others.

    Now I have to go follow all the links …
