RealClear Radio Hour: Mom, Boogey Man, and Popehat

Legal and cultural restrictions on choice and speech are ever growing in today’s society. From chilling speech codes on college campuses to crippling laws on child rearing, Americans have been dealing with intrusive government officials for far too long. This week on RealClear Radio Hour, I’m joined by two guests well acquainted with such overreach.

My first guest is climate scientist and free-range mom Danielle Meitiv. Danielle recounts how she, her husband, and their young children were repeatedly and crudely accosted, detained, and interrogated by the police and Child Protective Services in Maryland for letting the children play and walk in their quiet suburban neighborhood unescorted.  Find out why she’s suing to help end such abuses.

In the second half of the show, criminal defense attorney Ken White joins me. A former federal prosecutor and lead contributor to the popular political blog Popehat, Ken examines corrupting legal influences, from the rampant calls to limit free speech to the system’s failure to confront prosecutorial abuse.


You can hear from both of our guests this week by listening to the full show as-aired on iTunes, or you can check out the individual podcasts hosted on YouTube and SoundCloud. Make sure to check back next week for another episode of RealClear Radio Hour.
