This week's episode of the Acton Institute's podcast, Radio Free Acton, features two segments about transatlantic themes.
In the "Transatlantic Intelligence" segment, Rev. Ben Johnson, senior editor of Acton's Religion & Liberty Transatlantic, interviews Philip Booth, a professor of finance, public policy, and ethics at St. Mary’s University in the UK and a senior academic fellow at the Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA). They discuss what’s missing from the 2015 papal encyclical, Laudato Si’: how private property rights helps preserve the environment. The conversation centers on Booth's essay “Property rights and conservation: The missing theme of Laudato Si,'” which appears in the Winter 2018 issue of Religion & Liberty.
Then, on the "Upstream" segment, Bruce Edward Walker talks to British jazz legend Norma Winstone about her contribution to jazz and her newly released album: "Descansado – Songs For Films."
Both segments will enhance your weekend listening.
