This past Wednesday, we recorded this podcast at Evita’s restaurant in Ocho Rios, Jamaica. Our guests: Evita herself, Ricochet member Tim Patton, Senator James Buckley, John O’Sullivan, and Jim Geraghty. 

Once again, our sincere thanks to Tim for organizing this and for picking the location. After we finished the show, Tim said it was was a dream come true to appear on a Ricochet Podcast. You’re welcome, Tim. But take our advice — dream bigger.

Ricochet members who were at this event, please feel free to upload your photos in the comments.

    The editors of Ricochet went to Jamaica, and all I got was two excellent podcasts.

    Loved John O’Sullivan’s guest spot. Very entertaining and thought-provoking. Those Brits are good talkers, though.

    What I wanna know is did any of our editors or members meet Lady Solitaire whilst on Shore Leave in Jamaica?

    And were you perfect a perfect gentleman?

    Or can we expect a steamy romance novel written under a Pen Name?

    We also shot a terrific conversation on the boat with John and Jonah Goldberg for Uncommon Knowledge. Should be out right after Thanksgiving.

    Thanks again all! This was a great event. It was fantastic to meet all of you and I’ll be sure to post a few pictures later.

    Take away line from the afternoon was from John O’Sullivan channeling Obi wan Kenobi:

    “We must be cautious.”

    Two podcasts AND an Uncommon Knowledge? Boy do I wish we could have made this cruise…work and life intervened.Forget about taxes, the missus and I might go Galt just so we don’t miss the next one!

    We did 5 UKs on board the boat. We’ll release them over the next couple of months.

    *Five* UK’s? And Peter is always so thoroughly prepared! Is he getting *any* downtime?

    I must recant, though – Rob and Peter *can* do casual. Maybe this sort of work counts as rest.

    I wish I could afford to go 🙁

    I don’t think I’m breaking any confidentiality agreements by revealing the lineups of the shows we recorded on the NR Cruise. They are:

    • John O’Sullivan and Jonah Goldberg
    • Midge Decter and Mona Charen
    • Rob Long and John Yoo
    • Norman Podhoretz and Bernard Lewis
    • James Buckley

    And James Lileks takes us on a tour of the MS Nieuw Amsterdam.

    Five UKs, so this was a business trip. Ah the one percent.

    So does the staff earn a week’s pay without paying state income tax?
