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!

    This must be a pretty satisfying thing to see, Rob, and of course, Peter Robinson.

    Here’s where I congratulate myself for being an early adopter of 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.”

    Since you have so much fun with trash recycling, looking forward to your commentary on Seattle’s current controversy over its snooping trash police.

    Your podcast helps me remain sane in my left leaning part of the world. The Mark Steyn episode was gold for my mood.

    I notice they listed all the Ricochet podcasts under one entry.

    Can’t blame them. It wouldn’t be fair for us to take up the whole list.

    Might I recommend a Join Today sentence in the original post? ABCs, kids.

    Dietlbomb: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.

    Guests like Thomas Sowell.  Maybe not Sowell himself, but people very much like him.

    Spin:Isn’t Newsmax the organization that puts out all the crazy right wing crazy stories?

    Yep. It’s also the organization headed by a CEO who’s a major donor to and defender of the Clinton Foundation.

    These other podcasts… they’re weak, not winners like us. I don’t even understand why they’re in the contest, but I’m sure some of them are nice people.

    Does Ricochet advertise in Britain, Canada and Australia? I first became aware or Ricochet due to an ad in The National Review, and I was wondering if it is advertised in many foreign countries.
