60: What Should We Think of Virtue Signaling?

60: What Should We Think of Virtue Signaling?

In a time of perpetual outrage, it’s not surprising that virtue signaling would become a fashionable way for individuals to engage in highly public displays of their own inherent goodness. Unfortunately, virtue signaling is too often based in people trumpeting what they’re against rather than what they actually stand for. If we’re serious about standing for what we believe, how can we do it in such a way that we’re not simply proclaiming superiority over other folks?

59: Jeremy Snow on Why Due Process Matters

It’s never a good idea to allow the state to cut corners when it comes to the pursuit of justice. In this episode, attorney Jeremy Snow joins us to discuss what due process is and why it matters more than we may think.
