As recently as 10 years ago, the marketing craze was summed up in the word: FREE. The idea was, all of us, from our parent's basements, to a rural church pulpit to a blossoming business could become known, we could get our message out on somebody else's online platform. We could tell our stories, create "followers", find customers and maybe even get famous...All for Free. But then the music stopped. And we found out it was all a myth.

Tune in to The Public Square® this week as we talk about the effects of social media on the nation.

All around the nation the gambling industry is trying to capture Governors and State Legislatures in the web of "sports betting". But what happens when the gambling industry goes bust?

Back in 1989, one of the leading experts on legalized gambling wrote about the collapse of the "Third Wave" of gambling expansion in America. He predicted the last days of the industry would begin once sports betting was legalized everywhere.

Is that day now here? A conversation you won't hear anywhere else is happening right now on The Public Square®. Please join us and tell a friend.

No, this is not a plot line from a B-grade movie. It is not a bad joke. This is a news story that is about to blow up across America and will impact every person who holds a drivers license. The facts unfold straight ahead on this edition of The Public Square®.

In 1989, the late George H.W. Bush was President of the United States and The Public Square® radio program began with a 2-minute daily program on a single station.
