The Hinderaker-Ward Experience, Episode 32: Andy McCarthy on the Middle East

Featured image This morning Brian Ward and I recorded Episode 32 of the Hinderaker-Ward Experience, a hot-off-the-presses discussion of events in North Africa and the Middle East. I laid out at greater length than I have so far on this site my belief that the story of what happened in Benghazi doesn’t make sense, and that the Obama administration is engaged in a cover-up that it hopes can extend beyond the election. »

The Hinderaker-Ward Experience, Episode 31: On the Radio

Featured image For Episode 31, the Hinderaker-Ward Experience returns to its roots on AM radio. On Saturday, Brian Ward and I spent three hours at the KTLK studio in St. Louis Park, Minnesota, broadcasting on AM 1130. Our ace producer, Scott Immergut of »

The Hinderaker-Ward Experience, Episode 30: The Hottest Podcast Ever!

Featured image A couple of weeks ago, Brian Ward had a great idea: instead of getting just one guest for our next podcast, why not line up all twenty of the hottest conservative women in new media, as selected in Right Wing News’s annual contest? I was one of the judges for this year’s competition, so the idea was a natural. Sure, there would be logistical problems fitting all twenty into a »

The Hinderaker-Ward Experience, Episode 29: The Bain Bane

Featured image Brian Ward and I recorded Episode 29 of the Hinderaker-Ward Experience this morning. Our podcast, as I mentioned last time, is now sponsored by Audible.com. Here is how Brian described the podcast on Ricochet: If it’s Bastille Day, this must be the Hinderaker-Ward Experience. Because nothing says anarcho-socialist revolution more than John Hinderaker of Power Line and me, Brian Ward of Fraters Libertas. Today’s podcast includes scintillating commentary on the »

The Hinderaker-Ward Experience, Beer and Ammo Edition

Featured image Brian Ward and I recorded our biweekly (more or less) podcast this morning. Before we got to the very big news of the day, we had news of our own: our podcast is now sponsored by Audible.com. Needless to say, the revenue isn’t much, but as I said on the podcast, I calculate that it will almost exactly equal my monthly consumption of beer and ammunition. The news, of course, »

The Hinderaker-Ward Experience, Episode 27: Our Big Fat Faces

Featured image Today Brian Ward and I recorded Episode 27 of the Hinderaker-Ward Experience. We were joined by Steven Hayward for much of the show, as we discussed the latest stumbles by the Obama campaign, immigration and much more. We had a Loon of the Week–a couple of them, actually–and awarded our This Week In Gatekeeping prize. The show was, as always, lively. We started by grumbling about being tired of the »

The Hinderaker-Ward Experience, Episode 26: The Amateur (Bumped)

Featured image I am taking the liberty of re-posting Episode 26 of the Hinderaker-Ward Experience. I originally posted it on Saturday of Memorial Day weekend, and I am afraid that a lot of readers who would have found it interesting may have missed it. In particular, may have missed our extremely interesting interview with Ed Klein, author of The Amateur, which has rocketed straight to number one on the New York Times »

The Hinderaker-Ward Experience, Episode 26: The Amateur

Featured image Episode 26 of the Hinderaker-Ward Experience features an entertaining and explosive interview with Ed Klein, author of The Amateur. In turn hilarious and appalling, Klein’s book, based on 200 interviews with White House insiders and others, paints a picture of a president who has, quite literally, no idea what he is doing, and is too narcissistic to learn. In addition, Brian and I weighed in on the news of the »

The Hinderaker-Ward Experience, Episode 25: Patriots and Bullies

Featured image Brian Ward and I recorded Episode 25 of the Hinderaker-Ward experience this afternoon. It is a fun podcast; I will adopt Ricochet’s description: A special Saturday edition of the Hinderaker-Ward Experience (HWX) podcast is up and ready for your listening pleasure. As always, it’s fresh and free to all. It’s a spirited 60 minutes of podcast excellence with John Hinderaker of Power Line and Brian Ward of Fraters Libertas. They’re »

The Hinderaker-Ward Experience, Episode 24: This Poll Is a Joke

Featured image Brian Ward and I recorded Episode 24 of the Hinderaker-Ward experience last night. We talked about some of the hottest issues in the news, including the Senate Democrats’ dereliction of duty in refusing to adopt a budget; the GSA bacchanalia scandal; the 2012 presidential race, including our assessment of Mitt Romney’s performance so far as reflected in the poll data, about which Brian and I disagreed rather sharply; and much »

The Hinderaker-Ward Experience, Episode 23: Better Late Than Never

Featured image After a brief hiatus and Brian Ward’s return from vacation in Hawaii, we recorded Episode 23 of the Hinderker-Ward experience yesterday afternoon. We talked about the latest in current events, updated various Obama administration scandals, and awarded our Loon of the Week and This Week In Gatekeeping prizes.

The Hinderaker-Ward Experience, Episode 22: Dark Night of the Soul

Featured image Episode 22 of the Hinderaker-Ward Experience features the Obama administration’s attack on religious institutions, the ongoing saga of the GOP presidential nomination, Chris Matthews’s inability to distinguish North from South Dakota–a common failing, as any native of South Dakota can tell you–and more, including the Loon of the Week and This Week In Gatekeeping. You can listen to the podcast by playing it right here, or you can go to »

The Hinderaker-Ward Experience, Episode 21: Athlete Suffers Painful Injury

Featured image Episode 21 of the Hinderaker-Ward Experience features a great interview with Stephen Hunter, author of Soft Target. In addition to Soft Target, we discuss two more Hunter books that I have read lately, Havana and Dead Zero. Like the books, the interview is highly entertaining. While we were recording the podcast, results came in from New Hampshire. So we talked about the state of the GOP presidential race and disagreed, »

The Hinderaker-Ward Experience, Episode 20: Handguns and Snow Tires

Featured image Episode 20 of the Hinderaker-Ward Experience features a terrific interview with Peter Schweizer, author of Throw Them All Out. I think you will really enjoy it. We also talked about the issues of the day, including the latest in the GOP race, and awarded our Loon of the Week and This Week In Gatekeeping prizes. It was, as usual, a fun show: You can listen to the podcast by playing »

The Hinderaker-Ward Experience, Episode 19: Patriotic Millionaires

Featured image Brian Ward and I got together Friday night to record Episode 19 of the Hinderaker-Ward Experience, ably produced by Ricochet’s Scott Immergut and augmented by a Little Sumpin’. We talked about the issues of the day, including the latest in the GOP race–Brian is excited about Newt’s rise, I am not–the latest hilarity from the Occupiers, acerbic commentary on the much-hyped patriotic (i.e., pro-higher taxes) millionaires, and a prescient preview »

The Hinderaker-Ward Experience, Episode 18: Three For Fighting

Featured image Today John Ondrasik joined us for the latest episode of the Hinderaker-Ward Experience. He was coming off a big night, having performed on board the USS Carl Vinson as part of the Veterans’ Day event at which North Carolina and Michigan State played basketball and President and Mrs. Obama thanked the troops. We talked about that experience, as well as John’s possible new television show; but the main focus was »
