After a hiatus, the podcast is back!

In this episode, Seth and Jay along with guest Karol Markowicz, go through 2020 and offer up some ideas about 2021.

Bob Woodward’s book, Rage, comes out next week. With the release of some snippets come the revelation of Trump admitting to Woodward he played down the coronavirus to stave off a panic. Does that excuse fly? And what of the criticisms of Woodward that if he knew about all of this, why not release it sooner instead of waiting for the book to come out?

Grant, Jay, Park, and Seth discuss all of that in addition to the continued Phase 2 “reopening” of Washington D.C., the return of the NFL, and the weekly picks from the latest issue of the Washington Examiner magazine!

The coronavirus disruption continues and so the guys from Mag Men who were all home again, practicing social distancing, doing the show via Skype.

As the episode was recording, Senate Democrats and Republicans agreed in principle to a $2 trillion coronavirus relief/stimulus package. The guys discuss if it will do any good and if there will need to be another down the road.

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.

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.

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast for August 29, 2017, it’s the Loving Trump’s Hate edition of the show, with your hosts Todd Feinburg, radio talk show host; and Mike Stopa, nanophysicist extraordinaire. This week, our special guest is Washington Examiner writer Emily Jashinsky who will tell us about all the slimy things you ever wanted to knowabout the Southern Poverty Law Center, that lovely group of self-absorbed, utterly humorless social justice fanatics. Please drop us a comment on Ricochet if only to welcome Emily to her first time on the show.

Next, we will talk about the things that Donald Trump hates. What really makes him angry (as opposed to the things where he thinks he is supposed to be angry)??? Yes, the media! Yes, CNN! Anything else? What makes him so engaging when he is out there punching away at the bad guys? Or do you think he is engaging? We will analyze.
