Corinne Fisher is a stand-up comedian, co-host of popular podcast Guys We [email protected]#ked, and co-author of the book F*cked: Being Sexually Explorative and Self-Confident in a World That’s Screwed, with creative partner, Krystyna Hutchinson. She and Bridget have a conversation that is surprisingly not all about sex, though that’s certainly covered. They also talk the small world of stand-up comedy, the joys of bombing during a stand-up set and the hidden skill involved, the impetus for the podcast and how it evolved into its anti slut-shaming message, what Donald Trump’s podcast would be like if he had one, the lunacy of “post-comedy”, and Corinne’s rule about cutting any joke from a set that gets more “clappter” than actual laughs. They delve into body dysmorphia, shame, society’s view of women in their 40s, experiencing second-hand trauma, and the dangers of the body positivity movement. Find out why Corinne is the Jane Curtain of sexuality and how the words “I’ll try anything once…” have led Bridget astray.

The media have been swooning over the recently announced presidential candidacy of Robert Francis “Blotto” O’Rourke, the arm-waving DUI-violator from the great state of Texas. There has been a lot written and said about him, pro and con, but nothing so acute as the observations of one of the foremost bloggers and podcasters in America […]

I just took a pretty big step, did something I’ve never done before. I clicked “like” on a YouTube video.

Yeah, I know. But that’s not all. Then I clicked on the Subscribe button. I know, I know… but I didn’t stop there. I even clicked the notification bell.

I’ve long been a believer that you ante up for things you believe in. If you liked a restaurant but never went back, you can’t be sad when it closes. Same thing with a show, a band, a product, or company. Ideas and thinkers, which are the basis for political persuasion, take on an even […]

After a holiday hiatus, Julie and I finally return to catch up with each other and discuss Rob Porter’s resignation, the #MeToo movement and feminism, and Mustangman getting stabbed in downtown Portland (he’s ok, folks) by a man who said Taylor Swift told him to do it. More

Guys, I don’t know if you’ve heard about this, but Trump said a dirty word. He was in a meeting, and he referred to other countries as ****holes. Sounds like it’s a big deal. Maybe he didn’t actually say it (the only person who says he did is Dick Durbin). And in the end there […]

To the Ricochet powers that be, and anyone else listening in: Jordan B Peterson has a new book coming out soon and I think he would be a good guest for a podcast. I’ve been on a Peterson Youtube binge lately, and I think a conversation between Peterson, James, and Peter (and possibly Rob?) would […]

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. The Sacred Texts of Harry Potter

 

I’ve been a big fan of the Harry Potter books. I don’t care whether or not they were great literature and don’t think they promoted witchcraft. They were just plain fun to read.

But I was deeply concerned when I learned of two graduates of Harvard Divinity School, Casper ter Kuile and Vanessa Zoltan, who started a podcast called “Harry Potter and the Sacred Text,” have a “weekly church-like service for the secular focused on a Potter text’s meaning.” Last summer they became the number two podcast in America on iTunes.

The results at 11AM indicate 58% of responders support President Trump and 40% oppose him, yet I would estimate that at least 80% or more of the individuals on the podcasts featured on Ricochet are Never Trumpers. Although I haven’t listened to all, the only 2 podcasts that seem reliably pro Trump are the brilliant […]

It seems like every time I log in, the main feed is dominated by podcast posts. The problem is this crowds out posts by contributors and voted-up members (endless scrolling – first world problem). Podcasts already have their own, so they don’t need to be on the main feed. Am I right? More

I listen to a lot of podcasts. It seems that in every podcasts featuring female speakers (not Mona Charon), the conversation is sprinkled with the verbal tic “like” dropped inappropriately and with ghastly frequency into almost every sentence. Sometimes the speakers begin without that verbal tic, but the more they speak, the more often the […]

I have long been a fan of political podcasts, thoroughly enjoying the information, and the medium itself. However, one of my few complaints has been that it’s very hard to find in depth coverage of European or Canadian politics… So I decided to change that by starting a podcast that would focus on the politics […]

Responding to some concerns that there are too many political posts and not enough culture posts, this one will straddle the middle. Most Ricochet podcasts, at least, have something to do with politics. My podcast listening has diminished, because I no longer have a 20-minute drive to work. So I now listen to fewer than […]

This is your last episode of Flyover Country before … ? Before what? That’s a good question, and your guess is as good as ours.

What can you expect from a podcast the day before an election like this one? Well, we’ve got Sal Padula for you, so prepare to have those expectations met … and more!

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.
