Hear Him! Hear Him! And See Writer Seawriter.

 

I appeared on “Xtended” (Europe’s premier aerospace Internet radio programme) on Nov. 21, episode 124: “Coastal Command Chapter 3: Battle for the Atlantic.” In it, I discuss the role of the RAF Coastal Command during the Battle of the Atlantic. I wrote a two-part series on the air phase of the Battle of the Atlantic for Osprey a few years back. For those interested in listening, the link is https://aviation-xtended.co.uk/ep-124-coastal-command-chapter-3-battle-for-the-atlantic/.

It was a long, and I thought interesting, discussion (nearly an hour).

Hi, I’m Mikayla.

 

Hello Ricochet Community. My name is Mikayla Goetz.

I am a brand new contributor here on Ricochet who was last seen inspiring some pretty fabulous debate on my first post–”Freedom is a Tricky Thing.”

Rush Limbaugh has confided in fans and in opponents (whose minds he inhabits rent-free) that he won’t be around forever. His brother David was among my favorite Ricochet contributors for a while. I don’t think either of them would be offended if we consider now what will become of Rush’s program and conservative talk radio […]

This review may be a bit premature, considering I’m only halfway through the podcast, but it’s already too good to not share! I had two semi-long car rides over the past weekend, so I decided to try out this audio documentary that had been sitting in my feed for months. I did not regret it! […]

I was catching up on old ‘Ricochet Podcast’ episodes and heard @jameslileks mention that he was in search of some good fiction podcasts.  I thought I’d pitch some audio drama recommendations and make a post of it: 1865 (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED):  Historical fiction of the events starting with the assassination of President Lincoln and leading up to […]

Corinne Fisher is a stand-up comedian, co-host of popular podcast Guys We F@#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 […]

Coming Out of the Closet

 

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. Preview Open

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 […]

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.

Their target market turns to millenials, who generally consider themselves non-religious, but are also struggling to find a sense of meaning in their lives. They have no source for learning about morality and ethics, learn no standard of behavior to follow in their lives, and put off marriage or decide not to marry at all. Given this lifestyle and lack of teachings, they are rudderless, struggling to find spiritual direction.

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?
