We’re Number One

 

ricochet-audio-networkHave I mentioned how much I love and respect the editorial team — and the flawless judgment — of the Newsmax organization? Well, let me do it right now. And this, of course, has nothing to do with it:

Below is Newsmax’s list of the top 50 conservative podcasts: 1. Ricochet.com — Ricochet.com, a center-right discussion site where the audience is encouraged to “join the conversation,” produces more than a dozen shows native to the podcast format and available exclusively online. Hosted by commentators from leading conservative outlets, Ricochet’s shows offer commentary on politics and a variety of related subjects like entertainment, religion, history, and more.

And then there’s a list of the also-rans, but as President Trump would say: Winning Isn’t Everything, It’s The Only Thing.

I like this wording, too, for the GLOP Podcast:

GLoP Culture — Jonah Goldberg of National Review, John Podhoretz of Commentary Magazine, and Rob Long of Ricochet humorously converse about everything from movies to elections

The phrase “humorously converse” kind of takes the “humorous” out of any possible “converse,” don’t you think?

Still: grateful to be recognized by my new favorite news outlet!

    That ranking was a 10,000 to 1 shot, Rob.  10,000 to 1.

    I joined last month, and this month NewsMax ranks Ricochet #1.

    Coincidence?  I think not.

    I’m pretty sure “humorously converse” means we’re laughing at you and not with you.

    On the other hand, “humorlessly converse” would probably lead to some funny conversations.  Like when Aunt Mabel and Aunt Dixie talk about that frump at the library desk.

    Ricochet is only number one because Donald Trump doesn’t have his own podcast.

    Yet.

    I have it on good authority that the Flagship Podcast is, at most, the #2 podcast on Ricochet.

    Ryan M:I have it on good authority that the Flagship Podcast is, at most, the #2 podcast on Ricochet.

    Although, if they included us, I can imagine the review:

    “Ricochet.com also indulges a few of its lesser-known members in an off-the-cuff format where discussions range from abortion to Bob Costas.  This podcast serves as a decent metric for how much of Ricochet’s political theorizing is actually sinking in among moderately perceptive laypeople.”

    Congrats. I’ve been listening since Volume 1, Number 1, and it’s been a joy.

    The trio regularly host guests like Ann Coulter, Michael Barone, and Thomas Sowell to discuss politics and culture.

    Almost true! We could use more Thomas Sowell.

    How did you guys beat Adam Corolla?

    [edit]

    I wrote the above before following the link to see Corolla on the list.

    I also noted this:
    “We have also given some editorial preference to new and emerging names in order to make the list a place of discovery”
