Podcast 185: John Ziegler's California Chronicles & Diana Furchtgott-Roth's Electrifying Insights: Navigating Policy Pitfalls and EV Mandates

Welcome back to Breaking Battlegrounds! This week, Chuck Warren is first joined by John Ziegler, host of the Death of Journalism podcast and a renowned political commentator, who fearlessly navigates the murky waters of media integrity. From dissecting headlines to challenging popular narratives, John delves into topics ranging from the pitfalls of crappy journalism to the implications of California’s minimum wage hike and Governor Newsom’s policies furthering the state’s downfall. Next, we’re honored to welcome Diana Furchtgott-Roth, Director of the Center for Energy, Climate, and Environment at The Heritage Foundation, who offers invaluable insights into the intersection of policy and economics. Diana discusses a wide range of topics including luxury belief systems, New York’s controversial $15 congestion charge, and Biden’s focus on electrification to cut emissions, despite its limited impact on reducing fossil fuel use due to our reliance on fossil fuels for electricity. And stay tuned for Kiley’s Corner as she discusses the largest cash money heist in LA history on Easter Sunday.
