Adam Freedman and I, Not Appearing Together

I’m not sure that R.J. Moeller knows this, but Ricochet’s own Adam Freedman and I are old friends — we met in college and have stayed close (personally and politically) ever since.

So it’s fun to see that Adam and I appear on RJ’s AEI podcast, which can be found here. We’re on in separate segments, so we don’t actually appear together. Still, if one of us had turned to the other during college and said, “I’ll bet you and I will one day appear on a podcast embedded on the AEI blog,” the other would have said, “Put down the cocktail. You seem to have had a stroke. Nothing you just said makes sense.”

    Thanks for the shout-out!  And Rob, you are correct in assuming I had no idea you two knew each other! I would’ve played up that angle and found dirt on both of you had I been aware.

    So if you guys weren’t sitting around talking about podcasts and blogs…was it mostly Back to the Future references and comparing of Atari high scores?

    Could be.  I thought that “Adam and I” are the subjects.  But me could have gotten it wrong.

    I didn’t think Adam Freedman was that old.

    Not making sense while drinking?  Who ever heard of such a thing?

    Bless you Richard.  But yes, Rob and I were together in college long before blogs and podcasts.  It was a simpler time….

    “Adam is not appearing.”  “I am not appearing.”

    “Adam and I are not appearing.”
