The Acton Institute is proud to unveil the first edition of our brand new audio podcast, Radio Free Acton! We’re excited about the possibilities of taking our podcast to the next level, and we hope that if you haven’t already subscribed to our feed, that you’ll do so now. Just add this link to whatever podcasting program you use, or subscribe through iTunes right here.

For our first show, I’m joined by Jordan Ballor, Ray Nothstine, and John Couretas to discuss the upcoming Republican primary in Michigan. This particular race has provided a rich vein of material for those interested in the intersection of religion, economics, and politics, and we dig into all of those issues as they relate to candidates Romney and Huckabee especially. Additionally, we hear from Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse on how Marxist thinking about the traditional family still influences the modern left.

  • HAHA! When I clicked the PLAY button for Radio Free Acton on the home page, I got Alvin and the Chipmunks discussing the 2008 election.

    Hilarious, but probably not what you would hope for?

    We’ve actually heard of that issue a few times, but we haven’t been able to reproduce the problem on our side. What browser/OS are you using?
