We have a jam-packed, star-studded episode of the Values & Capitalism podcast for your listening pleasure this week!
First up, R.J. spoke with a young man by the name of Billy Hallowell who is the Faith/Culture Editor for the news website TheBlaze.com about life as a journalist and the impact "social" issues end up having on economic and political ones.
Billy has been working in journalism and media for more than a decade. His writings have appeared in Human Events, Mediaite and on FOXNews.com, among other outlets. Hallowell has a B.A. in journalism and broadcasting from the College of Mount Saint Vincent in Riverdale, New York and an M.S. in social research from Hunter College in Manhattan, New York. He is the founder of Pathufind Media and lives just outside NYC with his wife. You can find him on Twitter @BillyHallowell.
The second segment of The RJ Moeller Show features a return guest and fellow V&C contributor, Chris Horst, who stops by (via Skype) to chat about real ways to help "the least among us" that don't involve handing all our money over to Bono and Jay-Z.
Chris serves as a regional representative for HOPE International, a Christian-faith-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that alleviates the many dimensions of poverty through the provision of microenterprise development services in 14 of the poorest, least-served countries in Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe and the Caribbean. Chris completed his undergraduate degree in business at Taylor University (Indiana) and holds an MBA from Bakke Graduate University. He currently lives with his lovely wife Alli and their son Desmond (not the character from LOST) in Denver, CO. Make sure to follow our pal Chris on Twitter at @chrishorst.
Last, but certainly not least, the most interesting man with a dog named after a Phoenix Suns point-guard that we know: Eric Teetsel!
"Tweetsel", as he is known in no circles, is the Executive Director of The Manhattan Declaration project in the D.C. area and pops in frequently to dissect and analyze pertinent socio-economic topics of the day. This week's topics include why fishermen and hunters make the best conservationists. Follow Eric on Twitter at @ericteetsel!
