Tucker Carlson recently went on a rant about work, economics and class. So we brought on an expert to talk about it, and about the place of family and the church in responding to shifting economic conditions. Dr. Diane Schanzenbach, an economist and Director of the Institute for Policy Research at Northwestern University, joins us for a very lively and important conversation. Don’t miss this one. (Really.)

For more about Dr. Schanzenbach’s understanding of work and economics, please see her article here. See also Brad Wilcox and Samuel Hammond’s article on the matter as well.

Finally, as always, follow DerekAndrew, and Alastair for more tweet-sized brilliance. Thanks to Timothy Motte for his sound editing work. And thanks to The Joy Eternal for lending us their music, which everybody should download out of gratitude for their kindness.
