The Hinderaker-Ward Experience, Episode 51: The Savior Podcasters, With Victor Davis Hanson

Brian Ward and I recorded Episode 51 of the Hinderaker-Ward Experience this morning. Topics include: Detroit’s bankruptcy, and why it is the GOP’s fault, despite the city’s having no Republican officeholders for half a century; the sequelae to the George Zimmerman trial, including Juror B29, and why juror remorse is not unusual; the return of Anthony Weiner, and what is the deal, anyway, with his wife? And, of course, the Loon of the Week and This Week in Gatekeeping.

In addition to all of that, we were joined by Victor Davis Hanson for a fun discussion of his new book, The Savior Generals: How Five Great Commanders Saved Wars That Were Lost – From Ancient Greece to Iraq. If you have forgotten who Themistocles and Belisarius were, or want to know why these “savior generals” were like Will Kane and Shane, you should tune in.
