Heritage Explains


The ESG Pushback

Under the umbrella of Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) activism, corporations have become unimaginably woke. They are weaponizing capital, and it is promoting nearly every left-wing policy issue they care about. So what does it mean to say the Left is weaponizing capital, what are the implications? On this episode Heritage Visiting Fellow (and former CEO of CKE Restaurants) Andy Puzder joins us to examine the consequences of ESG activism, what it’s doing to American culture/401k’s, and the awesome pushback that's happening!

BONUS | The Danger of Fentanyl with Former DEA Agent Derek Maltz

Welcome to a bonus episode of Heritage Explains! We are looking forward to bringing you a new series starting on June 7, but in the next few weeks, we want to keep delivering you the best content to keep you informed about the important issues facing our country. In keeping with the series we just finished, six episodes on the threat of the Chinese Communist party, we are bringing you some bonus episodes, focusing on parts of the China story that we may have only covered tangentially or what to spend more time on. First up, an episode on the quiet killer that has taken the lives of thousands of Americans per year for the last several years: fentanyl. Since 2014, we’ve seen continuous, disturbing growth in the number of deaths due to overdose from synthetic opioids, most of them fentanyl. For this bonus episode, we’re pulling in a conversation from the Daily Signal Podcast which originally aired in January of this year, between our reporter Samantha Aescheris and Derek Maltz, a veteran of the Drug Enforcement Administration and expert on fentanyl. ---The Daily Signal Podcast: https://www.dailysignal.com/podcasts/More China Research from the Heritage Foundation: www.heritage.org/chinaWinning the New Cold War: A Plan for Countering China: https://www.heritage.org/asia/report/winning-the-new-cold-war-plan-countering-chinaThe Kevin Roberts Show: https://www.heritage.org/the-kevin-roberts-show
