Big Tech is bent on pushing a left-leaning agenda, inching us ever closer to a reality where those they disagree with—often conservatives—live under the threat of de-banking and social credit systems.

Their influence has spread to high echelons of government and continually deeper into our lives as our world becomes more and more integrated with the digital space. As we’ve seen in the case of the Freedom Convoy truckers in Canada, something as simple as banking and purchasing power can be stripped away from citizens in this digital era.

Unfortunately, this problem isn’t bound to Canada, but has cropped up in the United States as well.

>>> The Heritage Foundation is confronting the challenges posed by Big Tech

Joining us to confront the ugly reality of Big Tech’s ever tightening grip on our lives—on our speech, our politics, and even our commerce—and etch out how we can push back is Erick Finman, an entrepreneur who became a millionaire as a teenager building a multi-million dollar cryptocurrency company.


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.
