Our own Troy Senik, former Presidential Speechwriter, Editor in Chief of Ricochet, and current Co-Founder and Vice President for Content at Kite and Key Media, drops by to talk about the intersection of public policy with his new endeavor at Kite & Key. ┬áBut perhaps the best facet of this conversation is, simply, two friends enjoying a conversation that ranges from various approaches to communicating timely concepts to a broad audience, to super volcanos (also known as Flaming Death Holes), the attractions and liabilities of life in the northeast, and the drudgeries of going through life as “arm candy.”

Then, Ricochet member (and writer at The Federalist) Jenna Stocker stops by to talk about life in her hometown of Minneapolis against the backdrop of riots, Derek Chauvin trial, no-go zones in a once-vibrant city, and the tendency of people and businesses to vote with their feet when a city becomes unlivable. In an show that somehow manages to touch on nearly every facet of the current political scene, we think you’ll find this episode to be an oasis of refreshing perspective.
