This week, Mollie Hemingway sits in for Peter, and of course we cover Syria, the Russians, and the President. Then, we’re joined by authors Tevi Troy and Rod Dreher. Tevi discusses his new book What Jefferson Read, Ike Watched, and Obama Tweeted: 200 Years of Popular Culture in the White House. Later Rod Dreher discusses his piece Story Lines, Not Party Lines and the dearth of storytelling amongst conservative candidates. Finally, a Ricochet Podcast meditation on New York City, war, and the meaning of 9/11.
Music from this week’s episode:
Rhapsody in Blue (from Woody Allen’s Manhattan) by George Gershwin
The Ricochet Podcast opening theme was composed and produced by James Lileks.
