473. It’s Alright

473. It’s Alright

2019-11-1501:01:431

Got the full band back together for this one and we’ve got Scott Adams on base (see what we did there?). You know Scott as the Dilbert dude, but you also know that he’s been a staunch supporter of the President since the ’16 primaries. So we wanted to see where Scott’s head is at […]Sponsored by Circle, Ethos, The Ricochet Podcast sponsored by Norton360 with LifeLockJoin the conversation and comment on this podcast episode: https://ricochet.com/podcast/ricochet-podcast/its-alright/.Now become a Ricochet member for only $5.00 a month!

472. The Elitists

Our deepest apologies for the delay in getting this show out the door. A lot of factors conspired in this show being a day late (but not a dollar short). And let’s also say this up front: for reasons that will become apparent to you when you listen to it, this is one of the quirkiest […]Sponsored by Lending Club, Ricochet sponsored by Online Training Academy, The Ricochet Podcast sponsored by Norton360 with LifeLockJoin the conversation and comment on this podcast episode: https://ricochet.com/podcast/ricochet-podcast/the-elitists/.Now become a Ricochet member for only $5.00 a month!

471. Putting Out Fires

471. Putting Out Fires

2019-11-0101:21:00

Got a Super-Sized show for you this week chocked full of topics and Big Name Guests®. First up, we take a look at the state of California, which appears to be regressing back to the 19th century in real time. Then, Douglas Murray stops by to discuss his new book The Madness of Crowds: Gender, […]Sponsored by Boll & Branch, ButcherBox, QuipJoin the conversation and comment on this podcast episode: https://ricochet.com/podcast/ricochet-podcast/putting-out-fires/.Now become a Ricochet member for only $5.00 a month!

470. Civility and Humility

470. Civility and Humility

2019-10-2501:25:45

After several weeks of different combos for different reasons, The Big Three® are reunited and bring a power hitting show with them. First up, we talk southern cooking (Rob is hosting from Oxford, Mississippi, site of this year’s Southern Foodways Symposium — and please, it’s a serious symposium — not “an excuse to eat fried chicken…”).

On this episode of The Big Show® we take you back to last night’s 74th Annual Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner where Rob offers a first hand report. The guest of honor was former Defense Secretary (and Marine Corps legend) James Mattis and, of course, the main topic in the hall was the current […]Sponsored by BetterHelp, Eero, Ricochet sponsored by Online Training AcademyJoin the conversation and comment on this podcast episode: https://ricochet.com/podcast/ricochet-podcast/the-policy-not-the-mouth/.Now become a Ricochet member for only $5.00 a month!

This week on The Big Show®, we converse about the Kurds, talk about the limits of woke corporatism with David French, and get the low down on Kim Strassel’s new book Resistance (At All Costs): How Trump Haters Are Breaking America (buy it!).

467. The Elizabethan Era?

467. The Elizabethan Era?

2019-10-0401:05:21

Let’s just disclose this right upfront: we had some pretty big technical issues during the production of this show (Skype went down during the Andy McCarthy segment — Andy is preparing a criminal complaint against them on our behalf) and James Lileks could not get his computer to recognize his mic (he blames a cheap […]Sponsored by Boll & Branch, The Ricochet Podcast sponsored by Blinds.comJoin the conversation and comment on this podcast episode: https://ricochet.com/podcast/ricochet-podcast/the-elizabethan-era/.Now become a Ricochet member for only $5.00 a month!

466. It Smells Better Here

2019-09-2701:16:27

Some weeks, we have to hunt hard for topics. Other weeks, well, they rain down like a monsoon. The latter describes this week and to provide an umbrella we’ve got the Las Vegas Review-Journal’s White House correspondent Debra J. Saunders on the political topics (and a bit on San Francisco) and The Skeptical Environmentalist himself, Bjørn Lomborg, […]Sponsored by ButcherBox, EthosJoin the conversation and comment on this podcast episode: https://ricochet.com/podcast/ricochet-podcast/it-smells-better-here/.Now become a Ricochet member for only $5.00 a month!

465. The Class of ’87

2019-09-2001:04:23

It’s a bit unusual to find oneself adjacent to the biggest news story of the week, but that’s exactly what happened to our own Rob Long. He, like Brett Kavanaugh, Deborah Ramirez, Max Stier, and Robin Pogrebin are all member of the Yale University Class of 1987.

464. Debate The Debate

2019-09-1301:08:20

This week, Bolton bolts, we debate the debate with The Washington Post’s Henry Olsen, kick around the culture with The Atlantic’s Andrew Ferguson, we’ve got a new Long Poll question for you (but you have to be a Ricochet member to vote), Lileks awards the coveted Member Post of The Week, and some thoughts on […]Sponsored by BetterHelp, Boll & Branch, QuipJoin the conversation and comment on this podcast episode: https://ricochet.com/podcast/ricochet-podcast/debate-the-debate/.Now become a Ricochet member for only $5.00 a month!
