Dave sat down with Ricochet’s very own EJ Hill this week to talk about EJ’s work in television sports production as well as his phenomenal artwork here on Ricochet (which includes Radio Deplorable’s logo). The conversation progressed from the many changes in live television production to the National Anthem protests and the NFL’s subsequent response, to a look at what goes into the artwork and logos that EJ does for Ricochet and much more. It’s a fascination discussion that we believe you’ll find enjoyable as well.

    Pat Sajak is EJ Hill? 

    Self-effacing humor is the difference between good comedians and bad comedians. It also happens to be the difference between the Right and Left of comedy.

    I don’t know what sort of voice I expected, but that was not it. Good show, and it wasn’t boring, @ejhill.

    If not, I’ll be happy to do so. Your listeners might not be so happy, though.

    I was hoping for the bom-bom-bom-bom-bom of Ichabod Crane. Or a little Too-ra-loo.

    I just finished listening. Great interview, and I agree completely with EJ’s pessimistic outlook regarding academia.

    One question in the interview was why so many Republican voters where attracted to candidate Trump in the first place.  His answer was that they have been lied to by Republican leaders for 40 years.

    Later in the interview, Walter Mondale comes up.  This brings to mind what I think is the greatest example of the earlier point.  In that campaign George H W Bush made one very clear and heavily emphasized promise: to not raise taxes.  Once he gained office, he raised taxes.  I think a winning candidate has a moral obligation to make a strong effort to fulfill campaign promises unless there is an overwhelming change in circumstances.  President Bush, in a very public way, did not fulfill that moral obligation.

    As a result, President Bush lost reelection.  A Trump-like populist, Ross Perot, drew away enough votes to allow Bill Clinton to win in 1992.

    Good point. And, you will recall that, having framed his promise in vehement terms (“Read. My. Lips.” he said), he not only broke his promise, but seemed to mock us with the sardonic phrase, “Read my hips.” At which point voters basically told him to read their ballots. 

    We don’t especially like being lied to, and we certainly don’t take kindly to being ridiculed for having believed you in the first place.

    Didn’t realized I had the camera on. Well, @max has been asking about doing video of the podcast, so this is as good a first step as Ever.

    I thought the same thing, @aaronmiller. Great interview, as always, Mr. Carter. Nice to hear you be able to say former 18-wheel driver.

    Funny. I thought EJ sounded like Sajak as well when listening to podcast.
