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!
