Jason Hartman welcomes Connor Boyack, author of the Tuttle Twins children’s book series, and founder of Libertas Insitute, to discuss the need for education about our rights and liberties to be taught to children at a young age. The Tuttle Twin series is aimed at taking important pieces of adult literature and distilling them into key points to emphasize in a way a child can understand.
