First podcast of 2013 and it’s a doozy: Rob Long checks in from Paris and New York, Peter reveals his secret workout routine, and James explains how to have a successful New Year’s Eve. Later, AEI president Arthur Brooks joins to discuss the fiscal cliff and what Boehner should have done. Then, Governor Mitch Daniels joins us for his final interview as the chief executive of Indiana. We get the state of the state and a look ahead to his new job as President of Purdue University. Welcome back, everyone!
