In the aftermath of the EPA-caused catastrophe in Colorado, the Environmental Protection Agency's top officials said they took "full responsibility" for the spill.

On this edition of the the Watchdog Podcast, hosts Eric Boehm and Steve Greenhut ask an obvious question: what does that mean?

When private sector companies mess up and harm the environment, the government swoops in to issue fines and mandate apologies. But when the government messes up, who is being held to account? In this case, it seems like no one.

Then, Moriah Costa sits down with Neal McCluskey, director of the Cato Institute's Center for Educational Freedom, to discuss the results of a new poll that shows where Americans stand on major issues in public education and school choice.

Our Big Dog interview of the week is with Jason Hart, who takes a look at the spiraling debt at the U.S. Postal Service and what can be done about it. Do we even need the USPS in a world where Amazon will soon be making deliveries by drone?

All that, plus a look at Gov. Chris Christie's credit card bills and our Nanny State of the Week on this edition of the Watchdog Podcast.
