Ricochet is the best place on the internet to discuss the issues of the day, either through commenting on posts or writing your own for our active and dynamic community in a fully moderated environment. In addition, the Ricochet Audio Network offers over 50 original podcasts with new episodes released every day.
The Heartland Institute’s Donald Kendal, Jim Lakely, and Chris Talgo present episode 313 of the In The Tank Podcast. This week, the ITT crew talks about the painfully unfunny lineup of late night talk shows and their recent “Climate Night.” They discuss the failure of this event and discuss the climate and energy topics they neglected to bring up.
