America’s cultural institutions have been slowly eroding for decades. Today’s episode of “The Kevin Roberts Show” tackles the erosion of religion in the public square—an institution whose role as a binding agent that creates healthy neighborhoods and communities can’t be understated.

Kevin and Tim discuss why social pathologies such as a decline in the nuclear family and a lower birthrate have been slowly progressing, the importance of community life and the role church plays in it, and most importantly, how to solve these issues.

Tim Carney is a senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute where he focuses on religion, civil society, and economic competition. Tim is also a senior political columnist at the Washington Examiner.


Each episode of The Kevin Roberts Show is a weekly rallying cry for lovers of freedom everywhere, packed with Dr. Roberts’ analysis on the issues of the day and deep conversations with the movers and shakers of American politics and culture. And all of it backed by the academic excellence of The Heritage Foundation. 

As a former college professor and current president of The Heritage Foundation, America’s most influential policy organization, Dr. Roberts has spent his career learning, educating, and taking decisive action for a brighter America. He believes that conservatives have every reason to be hopeful, because conservative ideas are ideas that work. It’s time to go on offense.
