This week, we’re all over the marriage thing (well, not literally). Then, American Enterprise Institute president Arthur Brooks on his new book The Road to Freedom: How to Win the Fight for Free Enterprise, and the role of government in society, and yes, yet another dog story. We wrap up with National Review’s Mona Charen on culture, working conservative women, and the role of family. Finally, shout to Ricochet member Rachel Lu for her post Unshackling the Young — it’s the Ricochet Podcast Member Post of The Week. Rachel, your mug is on the way.
