This week, some thoughts on the Khashoggi murder, a deep dive into the Catholic Church scandals with the great Rod Dreher, and our mid-term preview with Ricochet’s newest podcaster, Lahnee Chen (subscribe to his show!). Also, you thought we weren’t going to give our take on Elizabeth Warren’s DNA test? No way, Chief.

We cribbed the title of this week’s show from Charles Krauthammer’s book as it perfectly describes what we’re feeling this week after the announcement from the good doctor and the deaths of Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain. We get reactions from our guests, Rod Dreher and Andrew Klavan, who also delve into other topics, including psychedelics, why Trump is a great President, cake baking, and more.

Yep, it’s another super busy week (and day), but as tempted as we were to cover the breaking news as it happens, we decided to take a step back and invite our good friend Rod Dreher on to discuss his new book The Benedict OptionAlong with regular guest host Larry Kudlow, we get into the weeds on the the future of Christianity, faith, and the authority of Scripture and the wisdom of the ancient church. But don’t worry, we also cover all the news, the votes, and yes, the passing of the King of Rock and Roll.
