Former Reagan Speechwriter, and Ricochet Co-Founder, Peter Robinson sits down with Dave Carter to discuss everything related to the 2020 Presidential Election. From the state of the voting public to journalistic subterfuge, from the strengths and weakness of both candidates to the reliability of various polls and polling methods, Peter and Dave take on practically every aspect of Campaign 2020. The dynamics of this engaging and enjoyable conversation travel from serious political analysis, to two guys sitting on the front porch, wondering why more people don’t understand history, and beseeching the kids to get off the lawn. Along the way, Peter offers a compelling list of what could happen in the event of a Biden victory (it’s safe to say that you need to hear this).

Then Dave welcomes Ricochet Member Brady Kiel (Herrforce1) to the program.  Brady, an Air Force Reservist, spent some time in Dave’s old line of work as an active duty military historian.  As you might imagine, the guys have a great time comparing notes and trading stories, experiences and reflecting on their military service.  From start to finish, this episode is loaded with compelling conversation and even a few laughs.  We’re sure you’ll enjoy your time with Dave and his guests.

Dave pulls out all the stops on this Christmas edition, which includes a remarkable interview with Peter Robinson wherein he discusses everything from how he met William F. Buckley Jr. and came to work as a Special Assistant to President Reagan, to what Christmas is like in the Robinson household (spoiler alert — it includes Peter singing tenor).  Rob Long called in with a very poignant Christmas greeting, followed by Dave settling in for a memorable conversation with a fellow retired military veteran and dear friend, Bob Lee, whom Dave has known for some 32 years now. Oh yes, and Alphonse Fontenot makes an appearance to tell The Cajun Night Before Christmas. You may be laughing one moment and getting a lump in your throat the next, but we guarantee you’ll enjoy every single minute of this show.

The brilliant Chris Caldwell of The Weekly Standard makes a reluctant-but-brilliant appearance on the podcast, live from the Ricochet Podcast Summit at AEI.

We also talk about a two-word joke told on an elevator that made international news thanks to a nutty Massachusetts feminist.

What do you call a gathering that features Rob Long, Dave Carter, Peter Robinson, David Deeble, Melissa Praemonitus, Boss Mongo, and Max Ledoux? Yeah, we’re not sure either, so we’ll just call Radio Deplorable’s Christmas Extravaganza. From Christmas Greetings from Ricochet’s members to Rob’s encounter with Ronald Reagan, from Culinary Societies to Alphonse Fontenot auditioning to become a “moving star,” there’s something here for just about everyone, as Radio Deplorable wishes you a Merry Christmas.
