With Rob and James cruising the Bahamas this week, we draft Pat Sajak to guest host with Peter. He reminisces about Bill Buckley and Merv Griffin, and let's us in on what's it's like to be a celebrity conservative. Then, Claire Berlinski joins to discuss our junk and the TSA, royal weddings, and the the inside story behind her cross town move. Finally, Ricochet contributor Steve Manacek stops by to talk about the Deficit Commission and why we should be afraid. Very afraid.
The Ricochet Podcast is sponsored by Encounter Books. This week's pick is "Gray Lady Down: What The Decline and Fall of The NY Times Means for America" by William McGowan. Available at EncounterBooks.com and Amazon.com.
