Podcast 194: Blake Masters on the Negative Impact of Biden's Policies and Brad Wilcox Discusses Fatherhood Influence

This week on our Father’s Day special, we delve into the heart of family and fatherhood. To start, we have Blake Masters, a friend of the show and candidate for Congressional District 8 in Arizona. Blake shares his insights on the pressing concerns of voters in his district, his plans for the military and the border. Then, we’re joined by Brad Wilcox, Professor of Sociology and Director of the National Marriage Project at the University of Virginia. Brad explores the profound impact of fathers on their children’s lives and delves into the importance of strong, stable marriages for societal well-being. Our final guest, Ben Leuschner, President of the Phoenix Police Sergeants and Lieutenants Association, joins to discuss the DOJ targeting local police. To end the show, we have an update on the Karen Read Trial during Kiley’s Corner, where she explains what is going on in the Yung Thug case. And finally, we end the show on a positive note with our Sunshine Moment, where Jenna discusses the good in the world.
