Ricochet’s only married podcasters finally return to the inter-webs with a typically feisty episode as they’re joined by (a Hemingway’s Podcast first!) Ricochet member Mr. Brown. They cover all the scandals, conspiracy theories, the inside dope on Mollie’s participation in Reason TV’s abortion debate, and of course, The Fight of The Week®.

    Gold, EJ. Gold.

  2. Fricosis Guy

    Finally, indeed. I have to drive to Longisland tomorrow AM, so I needed another podcast.

  3. Mr. Brown

    This is the best podcast I’ve ever done.

    Crow’s Nest: Psst. Mark. Brother. Yeah, over here (gestures).

    We live in the YouTube age. If you’re unsure how to do something routine, but manly (like winterize a lawnmower) because you’ve never done it before….well, yeah…..there’s a video for that.

    But, wait….do you have a tractor instead of a mower?

    Yeah, there’s a video for that too.

    Is there a video for all “routine but manly” tasks?  If so, things are looking good for me. · 28 minutes ago

    Well, not in one comprehensive video. But if you search individual tasks you may have luck.

    On a lighter note:

    Ask, and ye shall receive

    Knock and the door shall open unto you

    Seek and ye shall find.

    And, then, perhaps ascend

  5. John Walker

    It is wonderful to have this podcast back.

    Thanks to all!

  6. Brasidas

    Ditto!

    The only complaint I have is not enough giggling from Mollie..

    I am confused about the need for the moderator, though.

    Mollie – perhaps a thread on the concept of natural rights?  It’s been brought up before as truism in many Ricochet conversations, and I was surprised it was.

  8. Spin

    I felt myself getting angry at Molly over the fight of the week.  So, I guess that means you picked a good one.

    Benghazi

    Stipulating for argument that the least worst decision was to do nothing that night, the question remains why weren’t we prepared to do something.

    Gates and Panetta both mocked people who asked with “it takes time to get planes in the air” 

    With the literally trillions of dollars we spend on defense, do you mean to tell me that on September 11, we didn’t have any assets ready to respond?  If not, why not?

    IRS Scandal

    Only a few have observed that the effect of the IRS targeting Tea Party and conservative groups was to defund them, consequently rendering them ineffective in get out the vote and making the conservative case in 2012.

    I believe this was a deliberate act of voter suppression.

    What? No pictures of the birds and the bunny?

    Disciplining Children in Public

    You need to master the “Vulcan Nerve Pinch.” Grasp the child by the arm, very firmly depress your thumb into the child’s bicep, and whisper in the child’s ear “I’ll stop when you settle down.”

    With a little practice, you won’t even have to get up to take your children out of the church service.

    To the casual observer, it looks like you are just holding the child’s arm.

    Works on children from when they can associate cause and effect to puberty.

    Results vary but it worked on all 5 of my kids.

    I aim to please!

  14. David Knights

    Mollie has the greatest laugh.  It makes me smile just hearing it.

  15. Duane Oyen

    Am I the only one for whom there is no link?

  16. Right under the player, Duane.

  17. Brandon Shafer

    Just run the mower until all the gas runs out before putting it away for the winter.  Easy enough.  

    Crow’s Nest: Psst. Mark. Brother. Yeah, over here (gestures).

    The fight hit too close to home.  I was probably more uncomfortable than Mr. Brown.

    Barkha Herman: I am onfused about the need for the moderator, though.

     

    There was not a need for one… nor was there a plan for one. I was just there when a podcast broke out.
