The Heartland Institute’s Donald Kendal, Jim Lakely, and Nate Myers present episode 291 of the In the Tank Podcast. Today’s topics: Earth Day and COVID fears perpetuated by the media. Is Earth Day effective? Will the left eventually embrace population control? Will the “pause” of the J&J vaccine discourage people from getting vaccinated? The ITT crew discuss these questions and more.
