Ricochet is the best place on the internet to discuss the issues of the day, either through commenting on posts or writing your own for our active and dynamic community in a fully moderated environment. In addition, the Ricochet Audio Network offers over 50 original podcasts with new episodes released every day.
I have been a Ricochet member for just over two years. Being a member has enriched my life in untold ways. I have met over 50 members in person, and each and every one is just wonderful. I had few friends when I was growing up, and the people I have met on Ricochet have been like a huge, far-flung family. It just makes me smile, knowing that wherever I go, I need never be alone. We might argue with one another in various posts, but it’s always good-natured, and rarely really nasty. We support each other through our trials and tribulations, and the big hearts of the Ricochet community have been demonstrated time and time again (van for Linda, support for King Prawn, prayers and support for Nanda).
If I am having a bad day at work, I know that I can leave it at work, and get some smiles on Ricochet when I take my lunch break. After feeding the owner (Kikyo the black cat) when I get home, the next thing I do is fire up the trusty iMac and log in to Ricochet. I especially love the audio meetups, where I can listen to all the various voices of sanity in a sometimes-insane world. And where else can you converse with the likes of Paul Rahe, Rob Long, and Richard Epstein? News of the world? It’s all right here, from Scandinavia, Estonia, Israel, Paris, New York or Dallas. Virtual hugs when you’re feeling sad? All right here. I just don’t know what else anyone could ask for. I love Ricochet.More
