Spreading Joy to Soyville, RV-Style

 

Ohio farmers are worried. But a guy named Sonny has swung by in his RV to reassure them. Sonny Perdue, the US Agriculture Secretary, is on an RV tour of several “flyover” states, reassuring farmers along the way that tariff tiffs will not harm them.

As the soybean industry assailed President Donald Trump today for launching a trade war with China, U.S. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue said Trump assured him that farmers in Ohio and across the country “will not be allowed to be the casualty in a trade dispute.”

Flyover Country, Episode 66 – All the Lonely People

 

For our first podcast of the new year, episode 66, we are joined by Ricochet member Titus Techera, who has also written for National Review Online and The Federalist. Titus is a Romanian, who has recently spent time in the US, and our discussion revolves around the American psyche and our particular current brand of politics.

[note: I apologize for the terrible audio, which makes Ryan appear significantly louder than Terry and Titus. We will be sure to fix this before our next podcast!]

Flyover 65 – A Very McVey Christmas

 

This week we are joined, for the last podcast of 2016, by Ricochet member and author of the ever popular “Ricochet Silent Radio” series, Mr. Gary McVey!

I promised some links, but am in a bustle trying to get some Christmas-vacation packing done, so I promise to update this post ASAP.

What a crazy week?!  So, what do we all make of it? Max Ledoux joins us on Flyover Country to discuss. Preemptive apology:  We recorded this in the evening, and as Max is a friend, we were rather casual – Ryan needs to get better about avoiding interruptions and not talking over people.  Don’t worry, though, you’ll […]

Flyover Country, Episode 61 – No Marching in Lock(ett)step

 

We are joined this week by Ricochet member Jamie Lockett (@jamielockett), to discuss Libertarianism, Ricochet personas, and the bigger picture.  Jamie will be an American citizen at the end of this month – just in time for one of the most challenging elections any of us have ever seen.  In retrospect, I might’ve titled this one:  “Hillary and Trump:  Welcome Wagon!”

Opening includes music from Ronald Jenkees. Closing is one of the most obnoxious pieces that late-90’s pop music ever produced… seemed fitting.

Flyover 54 – There May Be Blood

 

This week, we are joined by Ricochet editor Tom Meyer! We hear about Terry’s job and the inner-workings of an oil rig. We engage in general conversation about the country, the electorate, history, and the future. We do our very best to answer the question on everyone’s minds: “Is it possible to have a podcast without talking about Trump?” Well, it took us nearly an hour and a half to find out. Stick with us; you won’t be disappointed.

Today we are joined by Ricochet’s own DocJay, on his 50th birthday, no less! Everything is a conspiracy, but which is true? Is Ross Perot responsible for the rise of Trump? Is Jeb Bush? Can this man actually win an election? How is the fishing in Argentina? Is it better than the socialist government?  Does […]

Flyover 52 – Ricochet Celebrity and Celebrity Candidates

 

We are joined this week by local Ricochet celebrity, Shawn Buell, also known as our “Majestyk.” Shawn shares the key to his new-found success, and — whether any of us want to talk about it or not — we try to wrap our heads around all of this business with Donald J. Trump.

Stick around, and even if you disagree with us, let’s talk about it in the comments!

Flyover 51 – Gary McVey and The Cromwell Moment

 

Gary McVey joins us for our 51st episode to talk about movies, Hollywood, and conservative politics. If you haven’t read Gary’s fantastic “Silent Radio” series, follow the links – or, if you’re not a Ricochet member, Join Today!! Politics, entertainment, conversation, and even radio noir. The pre-show conversation with Gary was so much fun, we decided to forget all about the intro. Video of our conversation is at the bottom of this post.

If you’re itching for some real entertainment, or if you feel that we made just a few too many references to Ricochet posts you hadn’t read, please follow the links to Ricochet’s best-kept secret:
