Episode 42: Instapundit


Direct Link to MP3 File

The Hinderaker-Ward Experience (HWX) returns for some fiery conversation on a cold night in the Twin Cities. John Hinderaker of Power Line and Brian Ward of Fraters Libertas discuss the Super Bowl, the holes in the souls, and gun control, including Barack Obama’s visit to Minneapolis Monday to talk about his latest gun grabbing initiative.

Next Glenn Reynolds, the Instapundit, stops by to talk about his latest book, The K-12 Implosion. The man who years ago predicted the bursting of the Higher Education Bubble now sees the future of ever more expensive, yet quality-challenged government education (boom!). It’s the latest in the Encounter Broadside series and can be yours for 6 bucks (cheap).

Then, last week’s winner of the Listener/Member of the Week, Lydens Cheng joins us to tell us her journey from Cambodia to UTEP to Ricochet and she gives us this week’s Phrase That Pays. (The first member to record this phrase in the comments section wins this week’s award and an appearance on the next HWX).

They then wrap up with the Loon of the Week (the wit and wisdom of Chuck Hagel) and This Week in Gatekeeping (what the Chicago Tribune thinks it knows about assault weapons).

It was a fun show, we hope you enjoy and member feedback is always welcome in the comments section.

    So God made a farmer.  Just in case Valiuth and Blackadder are unable to fulfill their duties due to unexpected scandal.
