The American Conservative University Podcast has over a 1,000 conservative (American meaning not UK party) audio shows. As they say – just listen at the feet of some of the world’s greatest Conservative thinkers.
Two great recent Podcasts we would like to draw your attention to.
Anyone with a passing interest in Economics should read or listen to Milton Friedman. This MasterEdit podcast covers many interviews with Friedman and covers a wide range of economic issues.
You don’t get much comedy from practical politics. Zig Ziglar (1926 – 2012) was an American author, salesman, and motivational speaker. A light-hearted and funny look at developing the qualities of success and how to be self-reliant. https://acu.libsyn.com/show-zig-ziglar-how-to-stay-motivated-developing-the-qualities-of-success

Brexiteer and political candidate Hoong-Wai Cheah writes Progressives are not liberal – “progressives want to clamp down on hate speech, even if it infringes on free speech…The point is that progressives want to increase state influence” – http://www.dailyglobe.co.uk/comment/progressives-are-not-liberal/
Croydon’s Surrey Street Market is in trouble, and the free market can save it. Mike Swadling writes in the Croydon Citizen – https://thecroydoncitizen.com/economics-business/can-surrey-street-survive-help-council/
Hoong-Wai Cheah writes explaining how all of us benefit from people getting rich by creating wealth – “When society is bettered materially, the wealth creators responsible get rich. If the entrepreneur fails to better society, they will not get rich” https://hoongwai1984.wordpress.com/2017/03/27/wealth-creation-is-not-a-zero-sum-game/
Croydon resident Hoong-Wai Cheah writes in the Daily Globe challenging the socialist orthodoxy increasing taxes on the rich and the consequences of doing so – “Richest 1% pay 29% income tax. How much more can we expect the rich to contribute?” http://www.dailyglobe.co.uk/comment/shouldnt-the-rich-contribute-more/
