Need to Know with Mona Charen and Jay Nordlinger Ep. 57: Duck The Halls
Mona and Jay talk about the week’s hot topics: Pajama Boy, Duck Man, etc. They also talk about some presidents past, including two Bushes and one Nixon. They talk about the next chapter for Mona’s youngest son: He’s going off to college. What’s it like, for conservative parents to send their offspring to a place like Penn? They end their podcast with some Christmas music – and a lovely dose of Engelbert Humperdinck. (Not the Vegas singer – not that there’s anything wrong with him – but the German composer from whom he took the name.)
Note: Mona’s microphone decided to take off early for the holidays a few minutes into the podcast, but the show must go on. We expect it will return to work in time for the next show.
