In what Dave describes a more eclectic mix than usual, he chats in-studio with his friend and co-worker, the delightful Joel Valdez who is wrapping up his degree in mechanical engineering, before enjoying a conversation with Ricochet Editor in Chief Jon Gabriel about what it’s like to capture the attention of the President of the United States. And speaking of presidents, Alphonse Fontenot visits Memphis to pop in the studio as well and make his own rather peculiar announcement. The result of all this is a conversation that touches on the world of high-end retail, best and worst management practices, mechanical engineering, binary elections, Joe Biden and the Democrat Primaries (no, that’s not the name of a new rock band), “Game of Thrones Girl,” watches, the water in Michigan, Conrad Hilton, and when to leave a department store. Buckle in, and enjoy the ride!

    Per discussion with Jon Mr. Gabriel on no redemption for the non-woke, I recommend a First Things article from the August-September issue by Alexander Riley entitled “Woke Totenism.” .

    Also, of course, a great podcast and such an interesting guest in Mr. Valdez. I wish him good luck as he moves into his engineering career. I’m sure hanging out with Dave Carter will enhance his life skills and general knowledge of humanity.
