Washington Examiner and Ricochet Audio Network Join in Collaboration


The Ricochet Audio Network and the Washington Examiner are happy to announce that we’re joining forces on a new podcast.

Beginning this week, the Washington Examiner launched “Hashing It Out,” a weekly podcast hosted by Siraj Hashmi, Washington Examiner’s commentary video editor & writer. Each episode includes a political guest to offer historical context of the news and politics of the day and insight into how we got to where we are.

Ricochet, which averages 5 million downloads a month, also handles the hosting and distribution of other Washington Examiner podcasts, including the “The Byron York Show”, hosted by Washington Examiner Chief Political Correspondent Byron York, and “Examining Politics”, a daily podcast hosted by talk-show host Larry O’Connor.

Introducing the Examining Politics Podcast


At this time of heightened and hyper attention on DC politics, it’s more important than ever to stay up to date on a daily basis on everything happening in the nation’s capital and how it affects the all-important 2020 presidential election. Every day, on the Examining Politics podcast from the Washington Examiner, I’ll interview the most influential elected officials, White House figures, pundits, commentators and journalists involved in the daily American political conversation. In just 30 minutes you’ll be up to speed on everything you need to know to get through the daily grind of the day’s events.

On yesterday’s episode, we discussed how the war of words continues between President Donald Trump and Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland. While the president has somehow gotten the Democrat party to defend their policies in Baltimore and embrace Al Sharpton as a respected, elder statesman of their party, we analyzed the politics of this latest dust-up with Hogan Gidley, Principal Deputy Press Secretary from the White House; and Townhall.com columnist Derek Hunter (who lived in Baltimore for 13 years.) Finally, we discussed the fallout from last week’s Mueller testimony with former Asst. US Attorney and National Review columnist Andrew McCarthy.
