The Ricochet PodcastEp. 161: Sowell Men

The Ricochet Podcast Sowell Men

Do you like good debates about politics and policy? All right, then we’ve got a podcast for you. This week on The Ricochet Podcast, Rob and Peter (Lileks was temporarily banished by the Skype gods) get into a crackling debate on a progressive’s advice to conservatives (thanks, virus cop!). What do you think the great Republican achievements over the past 40 years have been? Tell us in the comments below.

Then, one of the great thinkers of our time –Dr. Thomas Sowell– joins to discuss his new book Intellectuals and Race, whether could Cyprus happen here, and that now infamous RNC post-election report. Finally, our good friend John Yoo stops by to discuss SCOTUS, DOMA, and his quixotic run for the mayor of Oakland, California.
