The Friday edition of the Heartland Daily Podcast featured me talking with Heartland’s Joy Pullmann and Ben Boychuk — a Heartland Institute policy advisor and associate editor of the Manhattan Institute’s City Journal.
We chatted about “Won’t Back Down,” a major motion picture that gives the hero treatment to school choice — which I blogged about the other day. Joy wrote a story about the movie’s release at the Heartlander, which also features a review of the film.
It was an enlightening discussion, which you can listen to on the player below the fold.
