I always wonder about this.
How did you find Ricochet? Randomly? A link through somewhere else? Through a friend?
And why did you join? And what tipped it for you? What was the thing that made you join?
I'll answer first:
I'm a podcast junkie and sometimes I'll get the idea to search for something and then download the stuff it hits on. I think I was in a Tom Sowell mood after listening to an episode of UK and so I searched in iTunes for him and hit the Ricochet Podcast. (If he was never on the podcast then maybe it was Steyn or VDH.) I listened to the podcast for like six months, but I stayed away from the web site because it was no fun to not comment. Then when my birthday came around, my sister asked what I wanted as a gift and I told her a Ricochet membership.
And there it is.
So what's your story?
How'd you find Ricochet and why did you join?
