This week on America’s Most Beloved Podcast®, we meditate on the idea that Millennials (including one who was recently elected to Congress) feel as though they have never experienced American prosperity. Really. Then, the great Victor Davis Hanson joins to discuss his new book, The Case For Trump, and gets on a certain podcast host’s case for not…well, just listen. Finally, we call on Electoral College expert Tara Ross to explain why Senator Elizabeth Warren has no idea what she is talking about (it’s a 10 second long segment — KIDDING). Finally, we predict what the Mueller Report contains. Please leave your predictions in the comments below.

Note: the Lileks column that Rob referenced in the podcast is here.

This week, we start the show with a deep dive on…Beto O’Rourke (hey, know thine enemy, folks). Then Las Vegas Review-Journal  White House Correspondent Debra Saunders joins to discuss the Emergency Powers veto — what happened, what will happen, and why some Republican senators voted against it. Then Tim Carney stops by to discuss his new book Alienated America: Why Some Places Thrive While Others Collapse. It’s a fascinating discussion about class, family, and faith. Finally, we wrap things up with a sobering talk about the horrific mass shooting in New Zealand and ruminate on the college acceptance scandal. Booyah.

Sydney Benner is the creator of the revolutionary new fitness program, FLIGHT! She has devoted her life to connecting people together through movement. Sydney explains her calling to create spaces and places for people to gather that feel inclusive, supportive, and where they can be authentically themselves. Sydney and Bridget discuss finding the balance in all the imbalance, the grind of being a personal trainer, overcoming injuries, magic, and why you must choose your mindset every day. Syndey shares how loss of her father and step-brother within 3 years of each other helped teach her the preciousness of every moment, how she manages to rally and motivate others when she’s in a tough place, the importance of showing up – no excuses – no matter what’s going on in your life, and why you should never put your happiness in someone else’s hands. It’s the motivational podcast we all need right now. Be sure to check out Sydney’s website.

This week on the Ricochet Podcast, we’ve got…us. Once in while we just let the hosts host the show and let them talk off the top of their heads. Not going to synopsize it here except to say the conversation spans the globe from Saigon to Fargo and the topics are as far-flung as well. Finally — we have heard your pleas, faithful listeners: behold the new Ricochet Podcast open!

Melissa Monte is a mindfulness coach, certified yoga teacher and reiki healer. She and Bridget reminisce about how they met on a party bus of 40 women heading to Vegas and reflect on surviving a series of rock bottoms from sexual assaults to eating disorders, to the loss of loved ones. Melissa shares her insights into why trying to fix a terrible relationship was a way of trying to prove her own self-worth, the felony charge that path led her to, and the fact that you can’t cushion somebody’s rock bottom without going down with them. Melissa and Bridget discuss why they’re both so grateful for the twists and turns in their lives that knocked them off their straight & narrow paths in their youths, how it led them to the journeys of self-discovery they’ve been on, the amazing things that life experience can teach you, and retraining negative thought loops. Melissa explains the importance of understanding that the message you’re bringing to the world is not going to be for everybody and that what matters is the people you’re connecting with. Check out her podcast Mind Love, in which she discusses mindset shifts, energy frequencies and modern mindfulness. She pursues her passion of helping people become their best selves on her website mindlove.com.

Occasionally, a news story breaks while we are recording this show and the hosts must react in real time. This week, two stories broke as we were in the midst of the show: news of Roger Stone’s indictment and the end of the shutdown (at least for now). In between these stories, we talk to the Washington Post’s Megan McCardle about the Covington High School blow up last weekend and the business model for newspapers. Then, the New York Post’s Op-Ed editor Sohrab Amari drops by to talk about his new book From Fire, By Water: My Journey to the Catholic Faith and his remarkable life story. We also talk about the Catholic Church and the situation in Venezuela. Listen!

Bridget’s youngest sister Vanessa reveals what your wedding photos predict about your marriage, the joys and challenges of working with children, and why hedgehogs make terrible pets. She and Bridget discuss the trials and tribulations of dating millennial men, her 3 basic requirements a guy should have and why it’s harder to find than it should be, and her theory that feminism is making men lazier. Don’t miss their insightful conversation about unlearning unhealthy behaviors that were modeled for them in childhood, taking responsibility for your own life as an adult, no matter what kind of circumstances you come from, and the danger of waiting to be rescued. Vanessa shares her belief that therapy is like getting an education about yourself, the process of breaking the habit of losing yourself in a relationship, and the importance of practicing gratitude every day.

This week, we take some time to discuss climate change and then the puzzling and disturbing disappearance of a seemingly once very prevalent species: the California Republican, with our guest the Hoover Institution’s Bill Whalen. Then, we go back in time to chat about that guy on the $20 bill, Andrew Jackson, with the guy who wrote the book on him, Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade (buy his book Andrew Jackson and the Miracle of New Orleans: The Battle That Shaped America’s Destiny). Also, a little talk about transplants (of the organ variety) and Rob and James head to sea. Ahoy!
