Episode 41: Simon, Teo, and Armstrong

Direct Link to MP3 File

The Hinderaker-Ward Experience (HWX) podcast returns for a special Friday night edition.

Over some Sierra Nevada Ruthless Rye and a hardcore brandy and eggnog, the boys bump their heads up against the debt ceiling and contrast President Obama’s current strident condemnations of Congressional resistance to raising the debt to Senator Obama’s past strident condemnations of Presidential requests to raise the debt. They also come to terms with telling lies in America through the dark glass of Manti T’eo and Lance Armstrong.

Next they delve into the exotic world of thespianism when they are joined by the great Roger Simon and Sheryl Longin, for an entertaining discussion of their new play, The Party Line.

Things then wrap up with the Loon of the Week (featuring Constitutional scholar Danny Glover), This Week in Gatekeeping (featuring a serial columnist fabricator), and this weeks Ricochet Listener/Member of the Week – the legendary Sean!

Care to be the next Listener/Member of the Week and appear on the next Hinderaker Ward Experience podcast? Be the first one to name the phrase that pays in the comments section, and you’re in. It’s as easy at that.

 We hope you enjoy and thanks for listening.

    Ding ding ding ding!  We have a winner.  Congratulations Lidens.  Once we know the next date for the podcast, I shoot you a note via your Ricochet mailbox.

  2. Sean

    Thanks again for having me on.

    Just started listening to the first couple minutes & maybe the NCAA hockey audience isn’t as limited as you think. After I got off the line last night, I watched the rest of the Gophers-’Sue’ game and opened a Bell’s Hopslam.

  3. Leslie Watkins

    Really do like this podcast.  It’s a big treat when it comes on Saturday morning. Thanks guys.

    As for athletic awards being taken away: why don’t they simply keep them in the record books (everyone remembers the so-called wins, after all) but add that the award continues on the books with prejudice. It’s magical thinking, stripping the awards away.

    Also, about the Notre Dame player, I think the rumor that T’eo is gay (not a slur coming from me, by the way) makes potential sense for this weird, weird story.

    Looking forward to the next one.

    It’s really easy to win, you just have to listen.

  5. Indaba

    Aaah, missed it!I loved the loon of the week. History and the law by Danny Glover.
