Brian Ward and I recorded Episode 55 of the Hinderaker-Ward Experience yesterday morning. We discussed the issues of the day–the 17% shutdown and the Obamacare rollout, mostly. We awarded a triple-play Loon of the Week to the leadership of the Democratic Party, which is loonier than ever.
And we interviewed John Ondrasik of Five for Fighting. We talked about Bookmarks, his terrific new album, which you can buy at iTunes or Amazon. We also discussed John’s experiences as a lonely conservative in the entertainment world and talked about how conservatives can better compete in the popular culture. After the interview, John went for a run along the Mall in Washington, D.C., and, in one of the low moments of the Obama administration’s shutdown theater, got kicked out of the Jefferson Memorial. It is, on the whole, a very fun show.
