World and business leaders from around the globe are meeting in the mountain countryside to talk about everything from climate change and energy policy to Artificial Intelligence and Robotics.

The Heartland Institute’s Donald Kendal, Jim Lakely, Justin Haskins, and Chris Talgo present episode 380 of the In The Tank Podcast. The Biden administration announced this week that it was considering a ban on gas stoves, supposedly because it causes asthma in kids – a claim not backed up by science.

They are trying to walk back from this infuriating government overreach, but the In the Tank crew won’t let them because it’s part of a tyrannical pattern by our ruling elite. For instance, New York governor Kathy Hochul also announced she wants to ban all appliances, including stoves furnaces, that burn fossil fuels. This is not about safety, but about forcing us to go “all electric” for EVERYTHING as soon as possible to “fight climate change.” It’s absolutely insane and must be stopped.

The Heartland Institute’s Donald Kendal, Jim Lakely, Justin Haskins, and Chris Talgo present episode 379 of the In The Tank Podcast.

We’ll discuss what is looking like a rough patch (and maybe much worse) for the big streaming services (Netflix, Amazon Prime, Disney+, etc.), what that means for the future of Hollywood, and if the “get woke, go broke” maxim is holding or getting even worse.

With Christmas just around the corner, we take a look at the potential ghost of Christmas future.

Sounds crazy, but we may be well on our way to realizing that scenario.

 

The Heartland Institute’s Donald Kendal, Jim Lakely, and Chris Talgo present episode 376 of the In The Tank Podcast.

Also, YouTube denied our attempt at monetizing our channel, claiming our content is “harmful.”
