Kyle Smith, Critic-at-Large

The King of Stuff chats with Kyle Smith, critic-at-large for National Review, columnist for the New York Post, and literary critic for The New Criterion. Jon and Kyle talk about the press addiction to everything Trump, the failure of Biden to rein in the teachers’ unions, and the future of movie theaters. Then Jon talks about the end of the Trump era and the beginning of (shudder) the Biden Era.

    Convicting the president and barring him from future office is the clearest way forward for the GOP.

    WRT to the intros, if you haven’t looked into the The Conet Project, it’s worth doing.

    The numbers stations fascinate me.

    Kyle is not only a great writer, he’s a very funny one. And a good fellow!

    They fascinate just about every SWLer that I have known. Nothing as appealing as the Forbidden Station of Mystery. Unfortunately satellite coverage and the internet have really ended their era, much as with shortwave.

    You’ll appreciate this, James: After posting, I realized the “Radio Prague” intro is basically the same opening that OMD used for DAZZLE SHIPS.
