Toss ‘Em In The Pin

It’s a free-for-all on the Ricochet Podcast this week! Rob and Peter are off enjoying the last gasp of Summer, so filling in are the effervescent John Yoo and the mysterious “Lucretia”. Our official guest is Rafael Mangual, the newly minted author of Criminal (In)justice, which compiles his years of studying criminality in the U.S. and the progressive inaction of those charged with fighting it.

Steve Hayward also pops in from Scotland, as seeing John and his Power Line Podcast co-host Lucretia as guest hosts is making him nervous about the security of his lucrative side gig here on the flagship. The merry gang also discuss the much-talked-about definition of “recession”; naturally, there’s some talk about SCOTUS and the philosophy of law; plus, John and Lucretia have some thoughts on the possibility that Congress investigates Anthony Fauci.

    The people who take apart the police and the prisons never have to face the outcome of their actions.

    It’s nice to finally see what Lucretia looks like.

    Where do you live that it’s already “the last gasp of summer”?  Everyone knows that’s Labor Day weekend.

    How do we know that’s really an image of Powerline’s International Woman of Mystery?

    No; as with Alan Ladd, everyone else is standing in a four-inch trench.

    Great Monty Python bit about that.  “Scott of the Antarctic.”

    I could easily see myself falling for my history prof and sticking around for a post-doc if “Lucretia” were that prof… just to listen to her. 

    seriously, wait I was serious, getting into the deepest of what the USA is supposed to be and how we got here is what hooked me on the  Three Whiskey Happy Hour. This Ricochet podcast had plenty of that, too.

    I remember my mom telling me about that while watching his Mountie movie on A+E one day.

    That is, “Scott of the Sahara” (after budget cuts) … but they kept the 20-foot penguins with electric tentacles.

    Yes, that turned out to be the movie title, but the MPFC episode title is “Scott of the Antarctic.”  :-)

    This was a very good podcast episode.  It is nice to hear some depth of analysis.
