The Heartland Institute’s Donald Kendal, Jim Lakely, Cameron Sholty, and Nate Myers present episode 289 of the In The Tank Podcast. In a recent example of big tech censorship, an episode of the In The Tank Podcast was removed by YouTube. The ITT crew discusses this specifically and big tech censorship in general. Later, they talk about an update to the COVID vaccine passport story covered in the previous episode.
