Mark and Mollie Hemingway, America’s most beloved podcasting pair are back. This week, they recap the debates, debate abortion in the case of rape or incest, Trump v. Obama, NFL halftime shows, Mark’s bomb scare, and duke it out over Beyonce vs. AC/DC (we solve it for them).

    My poor ears!  What awful rip-off of AC/DC was that at the end?  That was the type of thing I’d expect at a Super Bowl halftime show.

  2. Chris Johnson

    In that photoshop from EJ, is Mollie the one wearing the cap?

  3. Cuban Mike

    While on the topic of music.  Please change your intro song.  I have to hear that 8-10 times a day, no joke.  

    By the way AC/DC for Super Bowl Half Time!!!  I might actually watch that waste of time for a change.

    Very nice podcast by the way, was looking forward to it.

    Beyonce?  There’s no Beyonce in football … what’s next, making the players wear skirts and pretty silk blouses?  … the game needs to get back out on the grass, dirt and the mud where God intended it to be played …

    There’s this at half time or there’s this.. both can give a charge one way or they other.. The latter does have more of a kick though sans suspenders but topless and singlets do get a go on..

    Wow! Ouch!

    <<<Sap Alert>>> I don’t know anything about baseball, football, or Beyonce, but it makes me happy to listen to your podcasts.  I love to hear Molly giggle, and I can tell Mark takes great delight in making you giggle, Molly, which I think is a very positive sign for a happy marriage.   I’ve been married for going on 25 years, and still, no one can make me laugh like my husband.  <<<End Sap Alert>>>

    Mollie, you’re for sure Ricochet’s most happin’ editor,  I think it’s fair to say we all think of you about like this … which is also, if it’s necessary, how football should get in touch with it’s more feminine self

    AC DC again it’s their song Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap in 1976.. 1776.. and they are Australian to boot.. Nothing against Joan..

    It makes me laugh just reading this and realizing this is a major part of our marriage — my husband is hilarious and makes me laugh throughout the day. I’m blessed! Glad you have that in your marriage, too.

    See, that’s what I’m going for. You’re the best, jetstream.

    ChristmasBeard: Poor Cardinals. They’ve been my NL team only because it was my first Little League team and so many former Angels have played together for them. Have you seen The Saddest Little Cardinal yet? · 8 hours ago

    That video is awesome. Thanks for linking to it. More importantly, Christmas Beard, where have you been? You need to comment/post more.

    Mark’s thesis about Obama’s playing the press as the envy of Donald Trump’s eye is bizarre.  Obama simply gives the media whores what they want.  For $20 any guy can get the same treatment on South Nevada Avenue.

  15. Miffed White Male

    Super Bowl halftime show:  College marching band, and dogs catching frisbees.  Every year.

    Poor Cardinals. They’ve been my NL team only because it was my first Little League team and so many former Angels have played together for them. Have you seen The Saddest Little Cardinal yet?

  17. Augustine

    Mollie, I don’t even like AC/DC and I could name at least a half dozen AC/DC songs.  Beyonce?  Couldn’t name one.  I am with guy who said marching bands and frisbee dogs.  One thing I have learned to loathe about the Super Bowl is that we seem to forget that it’s a FOOTBALL GAME!!! Not a FREAK SHOW!!!! Watching now is like watching a commercial/entertainment extravaganza where a football game happens to take place in between.

  18. James Stack

    Hey Mollie,

    Please direct me to post that describes your foreign policy. You mentioned at the beginning of the podcast that you disagree w/Obama and Romney and intimated you have a contrarian view. Would like to hear this? Share! I probably agree.

    Hartmann von Aue: Y’all really did it this week. I listen to Ricochet when I am working in my carrel up here in the library and this time you had me laughing so loud during the Fight of the Week that I nearly got thrown out! Thanks! · 5 hours ago

    That’s awesome.

  20. Steven Jones

    Great podcast! In praise of Mollie: she’s a must-follow on Twitter.

    And I suppose Herminator’s “Like…like…like…” when he gets wound up is superior to Obama’s “Uh…uh…uh…”
