It’s a very special episode of HWX, featuring commentary on the critical issues of our times.

Topics addressed include:

* It’s the 25th Anniversary of The Real World on MTV. We discuss this seminal reality series, it’s meaning for the culture and rehash our favorite highlights from the early years. Also, exclusive audio of the failed TV pilot from a few years ago, The Real World: Ricochet.

* Our special guest is Rep. Sean Duffy (R-WI). Not only is Sean an esteemed member of the US Congress and rising star in the Republican party, he’s also a former cast member of the Real World (Season 6 – Boston). And he’s married to Real World alumnae (Season 3 – San Francisco) Rachel Campos. We talk about his experiences on MTV, his transition to politics, and his priorities in the Congress today. 

* The Scripips National Spelling Bee was last week and we discuss the evolution of the contest and interesting winning words from the past. Also, the spelling battle the world has been waiting for: Brian vs. Paul and the spelling of politicians’ names.

* A special salute to the intrepid Ricochet members who had technical difficulties last week but fought through all impediments to listen anyway. Salute!

* What we were drinking during the show? Surly #Merica! and All Day IPA from Founders Brewing.

    Yes indeed! I was walking on air all day after hearing that. I feel like the kid who handed the disciples the loaves and fishes must have felt. Loved the Ricochet version of The Real World, too.

    Keep up the great work!
