Last night, Brian Ward and I covered the good–a terrific interview with Roger Simon and his wife Sheryl Longin–the bad–Lance Armstrong–and the ugly–the bizarre controversy over Manti Teo’s nonexistent girlfriend. This is how Brian described the podcast over at Ricochet:
The Hinderaker-Ward Experience (HWX) podcast returns for a special Friday night edition.
Over some Sierra Nevada Ruthless Rye and a hardcore brandy and eggnog, the boys bump their heads up against the debt ceiling and contrast President Obama’s current strident condemnations of Congressional resistance to raising the debt to Senator Obama’s past strident condemnations of Presidential requests to raise the debt. They also come to terms with telling lies in America through the dark glass of Manti T’eo and Lance Armstrong.
Next they delve into the exotic world of thespianism when they are joined by the great Roger Simon and Sheryl Longin, for an entertaining discussion of their new play, The Party Line.
Things then wrap up with the Loon of the Week (featuring Constitutional scholar Danny Glover), This Week in Gatekeeping (featuring a serial columnist fabricator), and this weeks Ricochet Listener/Member of the Week – the legendary Sean!
Care to be the next Listener/Member of the Week and appear on the next Hinderaker Ward Experience podcast? Be the first one to name the phrase that pays in the comments section, and you’re in. It’s as easy at that.
We hope you enjoy and thanks for listening.
I especially commend to your attention the interview with Roger and Sheryl and their new play, The Party Line. It weaves together two stories, separated in time by 70 years or so. One concerns Walter Duranty, the corrupt New York Times reporter who won a Pulitzer Prize for covering up for Stalin; the other features Pim Fortuyn, the assassinated Dutch politician. The Party Line is a colorful, entertaining two-act play that would be fun to see performed, but it is also great to read. You can buy it at Amazon here.
You can listen to the podcast by playing it right here, or you can go to Ricochet to download or subscribe to the podcast in various ways, or you can hit the subscribe button in the graphic above to subscribe on iTunes or elsewhere. Or you can use Stitcher. There are many ways to experience the Hinderaker-Ward Experience, but I think the best is by subscribing on iTunes. That way, you never have to worry about missing an episode.
