On this week's Radio Free Acton: a British scholar and a British jazz legend

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.
