The Ricochet PodcastEp. 199: Swanning Around

The Ricochet Podcast Swanning Around

Direct Link to MP3 file

There’s only one more show until the big live extravaganza (where there’ll be plenty of swanning, apparently). In this prelude to our big night in Los Angeles, we discuss the blackballing of Mike Huckabee, snow days in Washington D.C. (courtesy of guest Jonah Goldberg), umlauts vs. diaereses, and…puppies. Then, Victor Davis Hanson drops by to opine on Obama, entitlements, and whether he’ll ever run for Governor of California. He didn’t say no! 

Music from this week’s episode:

Swan Lake Ballet Suite, Op. 20 by Pyor Ilyich Tchaikovsky

The Ricochet Podcast opening theme was composed and produced by James Lileks.

Nice codpiece, EJHill
