After 13 years at CBN covering the intersection of faith and politics, CBN’s treasured Senior Washington Correspondent Jennifer Wishon is redirecting her attention to follow another call on her life.

Her most recent trip took her to Hungary, where she reported on the country’s pro-family agenda. Jennifer returned with encouraging news of how the country is experiencing increasing birth and marriage rates, and that she’s decided to embrace a new phase of life - full-time motherhood. Jennifer is on the podcast today to reflect on her trip to Hungary, her time at CBN, as well as what she looks forward to in the next stage of life and why she considers it valuable.
Confidence in the American economy is lower than it was last year, when the pandemic shut down the country. A survey from the University of Michigan this month finds consumer confidence at a 10-year low, despite a low unemployment rate, good consumer spending numbers and an increase in Americans' savings. Inflation and supply chain issues are having a huge impact, from the cost of putting Thanksgiving dinner on the table, to filling up your gas tank and getting the Christmas presents you want on time. In addition, on Friday the House of Representatives passed their nearly $2 trillion Build Back Better plan. Joining the podcast to discuss the current state of the U.S. economy and any effect that legislation will have on it is CBN News Financial Editor Drew Parkhill.
While in office, President Trump sought to strengthen protections for religious freedom and the ability to not be forced to violate various beliefs individuals may hold.

Children’s health has been a topic of national interest and concern especially over the last year. From debating what children are being taught in school to deciding whether or not to stick them with the recently approved Pfizer dose for children, our youth are reliant upon their parents and elders to make these impactful decisions for them. While we’ve been primarily focused on their physical health during the pandemic, the mental health of America’s youth has deteriorated. CBN News Medical Reporter Lorie Johnson recently talked to a neurologist and psychiatrist about the impact the pandemic has had on children’s mental health, which has taken a frightening, downward turn over the past year. Lorie is on today’s episode to share what she learned about protecting our youth – from the vaccine to social media.
Consumer prices for nearly everything continues to rise at an alarming rate. Food, cars, furniture and especially the price of gas are all way up month-over-month and year-over-year, with inflation seeing its highest one-month jump in 30 years. This, as Congress is set to return next week to wrangle over the President's Build Back Better agenda, avoid a government shutdown and raise the debt limit as the holidays approach. CBN News Congressional Correspondent Abigail Robertson joins us to discuss the politics of inflation and what it means for Congress and the Biden White House.

Government overreach in the United States is running rampant as our leaders increasingly supplant parents, families, and religion with invasive policies. From vaccine mandates in the workplace to gender neutral restrooms in schools, the federal government is infringing on freedom in the name of public safety and inclusion. Americans are showing up at the polls, speaking out at school board meetings, and using their positions of influence to wake others up to the tyranny. Former United States Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said the U.S. is looking more and more like communist China. She sat down with CBN News Chief Political Correspondent David Brody last week to talk about the state of our country and who we should look to for direction. David is on today’s podcast to share what they discussed.

Republican lawmakers and governors are already launching legal challenges against the new rules issued by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) that would affect roughly 84 million Americans. This as Pfizer announces a new pill that they say is 90% effective in preventing hospitalization and death in mild to moderate COVID cases and their vaccine for kids 5-11, which officially began being injected into the arms of children around the country this week. CBN News Medical Reporter Lorie Johnson joins us to discuss all the latest COVID news.
