Folks, we’re getting to the final act of the election and there’s no one better qualified to help us parse it than the Weekly Standard’s Andrew Ferguson. We talk Hillary, we talk Trump and his bizarre relationship with Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter, the Beatles, and of course, the Nobelist himself, Bob Dylan. Also, where might we be headed from here (and by “we” we mean Ricochet)? @FatherB. asks the question in his post “In which I disparage this website and its founders” on the member feed and as promised, gets it answered on the podcast.

Public service announcement: if you’re not a member of Ricochet and enjoy this podcast, be one of the 1,500 and join today.
