Ricochet is the best place on the internet to discuss the issues of the day, either through commenting on posts or writing your own for our active and dynamic community in a fully moderated environment. In addition, the Ricochet Audio Network offers over 50 original podcasts with new episodes released every day.
The King of Stuff welcomes Mark Hemingway, a Senior Writer at RealClearInvestigations. You’ve read his work in National Review, The Weekly Standard, Reason, the Washington Examiner … and he co-hosted the late, yet still beloved, podcast The Hemingways with his wife Mollie. Mark also has excellent taste in music so we discuss his band days, and the problems facing journalism, the death of gatekeepers, and fact-check culture.
Subscribe to the King of Stuff Spotify playlist featuring picks from the show. This week, Jon and Mark both choose a flurry of power pop songs. Excerpts are The Records “Starry Eyes” and Game Theory “Together Now, Very Minor.”
