Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America applaud Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg for calling athlete protests of the national anthem “dumb,” “stupid,” “disrespectful,” and “arrogant.” They also enjoy watching Democrats squirm over Wikileaks revelations, including DNC official Donna Brazile getting caught helping Hillary Clinton against Bernie Sanders and a top Clinton Foundation official calling Chelsea Clinton a “spoiled brat.” And they sigh as Glenn Beck reveals that he considered voting for Clinton before ultimately deciding against it.

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Podcast for Tuesday, October 11, 2016. It’s the “Hillie Sutton: Go Where the Money Is” edition with our exclusive interview with Washington Examiner’s Michael Barone. We come to you in the wake of the second presidential debate in which Donald Trump is viewed by many as having calmed the outrage connected to the release Friday of his Crotch Grab interview – which had the media in a feeding frenzy and scared Republicans running away from Donald anew. We’ll talk about the debate and we’ll discuss the Crotch Grab interview released Friday.

Are minorities leaving the G.O.P. or are are white voters in general just going the way of the Dodo bird? That’s the question we ponder (Rob Long ponders it at a chi chi bar in Manhattan as you’ll hear). The we chat about the debate with Ramesh Ponnuru and about Tim Kaine’s weird position on abortion rights. Later, Jim Geraghty, the Morning Jolt newsletter author (and host of the Three Martini Lunch podcast), joins to discuss the N.F.L.’s sinking ratings and whether they have to do with the injection of politics into the game. Also, the state of the Presidential race, the fight for Congress, and courtesy of Ricochet member @rushbabe49, our podcasters reveal their happiest memory. Spoiler alert: one isn’t very happy.

When we want a voice of sanity and reason to help us distill the election and the world at large, we turn to our good friend Mitch Daniels, the current President of Purdue University and the former Governor of Indiana (and in our alternate universe, the President of the United States). He schools us on Gary Johnson, our addiction to debt, and political correctness on campus. Then, our fellow podcaster Andrew Klavan joins to chat about his new book The Great Good Thing: A Secular Jew Comes to Faith in Christ. Also, what would you tell Donald Trump if you were his debate coach? We give our thoughts on the show, but tell us yours in the comments.

Another week, another show in which gab and you listen. This week, our guests are two world class gabbers: The Hoover Institution’s Bill Whalen stops by to discuss the state of the race, and some predictions for the next 55 days. Then, author and Ricochet Podcast Super Fan Tevi Troy Skypes in to chat about his new book Shall We Wake the President?: Two Centuries of Disaster Management from the Oval Office. Also, Doc Jay’s Do NeverTrumpers Lose Their Right to Whine?, the tightening polls, and why presidents must love Spock. Highly logical.

We open with some thoughts on the just concluded Democratic convention, and then segue into our guest, Avik Roy. His interview with Vox has been discussed extensively on Ricochet, and we give him the full court Ricochet Podcast press. Is the GOP on life support as Avik suggests and can be saved? Or, is everything just fine, and the party should stay the course? We delve into all of that with Roy in a very provocative (but civil!) conversation. Also, some thoughts on auto-promotion and the new version of Ricochet. If you’re reading this and you’re not a member — what are you waiting for? Join NOW. We need you!

We are your voice.

This week, Lileks is on vacation so we asked our good friend Larry Kudlow to sit in his chair as we welcome the Manhattan Institute’s and Wall Street Journal columnist Jason Riley to the show to discuss the events of the last week. Yes, we also cover the presumptive nominee, and Larry makes a valiant effort to convince one of the hosts to support his candidate. Was Larry successful? Tune in to find out.
