This week, Troy Senik sits in for Peter Robinson as we bat around the big wrap up of last weekend, and SOTU…yawn. First up, The New York Time’s Ross Douthat talks conservative reform and more imperfect unions. Then, Washington Free Beacon’s Matt Continetti drops in for a fascinating chat about on Love In The Time of Obama. Also, does it matter that Hillary hasn’t driven a car in 18 years? Rob and James debate it so you don’t have to. 

Music from this week’s episode:

If I Had A  Hammer by Sam Cooke

The Ricochet Podcast opening theme was composed and produced by James Lileks.
