Ricochet is the best place on the internet to discuss the issues of the day, either through commenting on posts or writing your own for our active and dynamic community in a fully moderated environment. In addition, the Ricochet Audio Network offers over 50 original podcasts with new episodes released every day.
Mark Normand, stand-up comedian and podcast host, connects with Bridget to make fun of Gwyneth Paltrow’s vagina candles, the absurdity of people on Twitter telling you to reach out if you’re feeling depressed or suicidal when they’re the ones calling you Nazis, political hypocrisy and posturing, and people wielding the word “complicit” as a weapon. They cover why doing stand-up seemed like becoming an astronaut, how weird it is to see the mob mentality go viral, how not being able to ask questions about something is always a bad sign, why Mark should consider trying heroin, and why Bridget would make a terrible drug mule. They also get deep with discussions of mortality, the uncomfortableness of sitting with joy, the warrior ethos, how everyone has demons, and how the stories we tell ourselves keep us stuck. Check out Mark’s stand-up special Out To Lunch.

I imagine this show isn’t for everyone, but as a political orphan and former standup I appreciate her take and her choice of guests.
