Ricochet is the best place on the internet to discuss the issues of the day, either through commenting on posts or writing your own for our active and dynamic community in a fully moderated environment. In addition, the Ricochet Audio Network offers over 50 original podcasts with new episodes released every day.
Before I start posting here at Ricochet, I wanted to take the time to introduce myself to readers, members, and listeners. You may already be familiar with me because of my role on LadyBrains and the newly launched podcast with my husband Seth, called That Sethany Show.
I’ll be editing here part-time, cleaning up member posts and helping podcasts and other posts get on the site. In addition to that editing, I’ll be writing a few posts a week, on politics and cultural trends.
A bit about me: I’m a full-time mother, home with my three kids. I don’t use their names online because the Internet is a dark and scary place, and we want them to develop their online identities separate from us. My oldest is four, and her online nickname is Cookie; you may have heard unexpected guest appearances from her on LadyBrains over the last year. My middle son is nicknamed Pat because he was born on St. Patrick’s Day; he’s almost three. You may be familiar with my youngest’s birth story; his nickname is Altima, because that’s where he was born, in Seth’s Nissan Altima on the side of the highway. (You can listen to that whole story on this episode of LadyBrains).
In addition to my Ricochet duties editing, writing and podcasting, I am also a Senior Contributor at the Federalist and a columnist at the Jewish Daily Forward.
Before my daughter was born, Seth and I both worked at Commentary Magazine. After she was born I started freelancing from home, and plan to homeschool our children. Seth has since moved on to become the op-ed editor at the New York Post. We live in New Jersey with our kids and have no spare time; though if I had that, I would continue trying to teach myself how to crochet and be far more crafty and put together than I am.
I look forward to getting to know all of you; please introduce yourselves in the comments!
