Back in 2008, we began producing Radio Free Acton, the official podcast of the Acton Institute. The name, a play on the “Radio Free Europe” of the Cold War era, served us well for many years. Given the rapid pace of change in technology and podcasting though, we thought it was time for a refresh more in keeping with today’s audience. We’re pleased to introduce our podcast’s new name: Acton Line.
On this episode of Acton Line, Rev. Ben Johnson, senior editor at Acton, speaks with Rev. Richard Turnbull from the Center for Enterprise, Markets, and Ethics, to talk about the importance of private, voluntary institutions, drawing examples from how things have gone amiss in the UK when the government has stepped in for the church. After that, occasional host Bruce Walker welcomes Emily Jashinsky, culture editor at the Federalist, onto the podcast to discuss how American movies are being increasingly funded by China and as a result, facing significant censorship.
