Scott Walker dropped out of the presidential race and Pope Francis dropped by Washington, D.C., to lecture Congress about immigration and climate change.

Hosts Eric Boehm and Matt Kittle take a look back at the Walker campaign, trying to figure out where the governor went wrong in his pursuit of the White House.  Perhaps more importantly, we also look ahead to see what his return to Wisconsin will mean for his political future and the state's.

Later, Sterling Burnett from the Heartland Institute stops by the program to take a hard look at the head of the Catholic Church.  Pope Francis talks about wanting to help the world's poor -- a noble goal, for sure -- but he also likes to talk about the need for environmental policies to stop global warming.  The problem, Burnett points out, is that those environmental policies come at a high cost for the poor.

Also on this edition of the show: police in Pennsylvania want to be granted anonymity when they pull the trigger, and the state Supreme Court in Washington has ruled charter schools to be unconstitutional.

All that, plus our Nanny State of the Week, on this edition of the Watchdog Podcast.
