We are back with The Caffeinated Thoughts Podcast! Welcome to our 50th episode! We apologize for the hiatus, our host Shane Vander Hart was traveling last week and early this week.

For this episode, Shane introduces a new segment to the podcast – items of interest. This segment is similar to the “news you can use” segment aired on Caffeinated Thoughts Radio. So in addition to interviews, Shane will highlight different stories and events to provide analysis and his opinion which he so freely gives.

For this episode:

  • More Americans say pornography is morally acceptable
  • Religious liberty is officially dead in Canada.
  • President Trump says some interesting things about North Korea’s leader Kim Jung Un.

And later in the podcast, Shane speaks with Jonathan Williams, the Chief Economist and Vice President for the American Legislative Exchange Council who is the author of a new report ranking each governor’s State of the State address, as well as, the Rich States, Poor States Report.
