The Ricochet PodcastEp. 169: Taking The Fifth

The Ricochet Podcast Taking The Fifth

Direct link to MP3 file

This week on the one and only Ricochet Podcast, Peter is MIA, but Rob and James soldier on in style with guests AEI President Arthur Brooks (read his WSJ op-ed The GOP’s Hispanic Opening) and The Weekly Standard’s Mark Hemingway on the IRS scandal. Also, we ponder whether taking the fifth always implies guilt, and Lileks v. Buzzfeed. We bet they’re going to regret taking him on. 

Music from this week’s show:

Take The 5th by The Brian Setzer Orchestra 

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