Video: A day in the life, surrounded by federal regulations

Ben Hethcoat Oct 19, 2017

Can you name a single federal regulation? Probably not, but they’re all around you, from the second you open your eyes in the morning.

On this season of The Uncertain Hour, we unpack a ten-letter word that influences our lives every day, from the food we eat to the air we breathe: regulation. Federal regulations affect everything from what’s inside your peanut butter jar, to how the opioid crisis spread, to how we define crime in America.

Because the things we fight the most about are the things we know the least about. Listen and subscribe on Apple Podcasts or your favorite podcast app.
