    Dear Lord, you weren’t joking about the audio issues. What were you recording with, a potato?

    Seems to me that too many people are relying on stuff like USB microphones etc, rather than using the real stuff that has worked great for decades.

    Seems to me that the biggest single problem with this, which both Jon Gabriel and Kimberley Strassel described without actually stating clearly, is that Trump didn’t actually CAUSE the “damage to institutions” etc, not even “impeachment” really. He just had the temerity to be elected, which “forced” the… well, the Deep State might be the easiest shorthand… to expose their rot and corruption in trying to expel him from what they’ve come to view as Their World. The rot and corruption were already there, it was just better hidden. And they apparently believed that they could “vomit” Trump out of THEIR Body Politic without anyone noticing or caring.

    My only complaint is I wish these guys wouldn’t put their podcast/download in stereo. There’s no reason for it with a talking podcast, and it makes the files twice as big.

    Hillary’s going to jump in ? She can barely waddle in with the help of two weight lifters.

    Biden/Gabbard.

    Annoying, but highly viable. Gabbard can be the attack dog that a veep should be, and clear the field for Uncle Joe.

    The interview with Kim Strassel was excellent. I listened to it twice. 

    It just occurred to me, Ricochet could sell transcripts of podcasts. I wonder what the economics are.

    The part about Jay Rosen and journalists answering questions for Warren was just dead on.

    I saw that tweet. Absolutely mind blowing. Think of the money that guy makes.

    All and @blueyeti: I really think you ought to have Dave Carter redo/properly do everyone’s sound equipment. His podcast is excellent and I know he mentioned that he had gotten completely new equipment. I realize sometimes people are on the road or trying to interview someone but cellphone but could try a little harder to make the audio better. I do appreciate the head’s up from Jon, Stephen Hayward, etc when they do run into troubles. Excellent interview with Ms. Strassel.

    Money quote goes to ….. Jon Gabriel:

    “If Obama had a son, he would look like Justin Trudeau in black face”
