471. Putting Out Fires

Got a Super-Sized show for you this week chocked full of topics and Big Name Guests®. First up, we take a look at the state of California, which appears to be regressing back to the 19th century in real time. Then, Douglas Murray stops by to discuss his new book The Madness of Crowds: Gender, Race and Identity which ponders and answers all of the provocative questions posed by the words in that title. Then, our old friend, fellow Ricochet podcaster, cable news star and human trending topic on Twitter John Yoo joins to clear up exactly what he thinks about Army Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman. Did Laura Ingraham trap him into saying something he did not mean to say? Were we as tough on him as Chris Cuomo? Listen, decide, and let us know in the comments. Then, @rushbabe49 wins the highly coveted, much sought after Lileks Post of The Week prize for her The Story That Disappeared post, and yes, there's a new Long Poll question too. Finally, (and we do mean finally), Obama calls out cancel culture, and President Trump runs a new campaign commercial and you'll never believe who it impressed.

Music from this week's show: Cleanin' Out My Closet by Eminem

A very busy week to cover on this week's show (even though one of our hosts is already vacation mode -- and we apologize in advance for his sometimes spotty audio). We've got Jonathan V. Last (his Democratic Power Rankings are a must read) to parse both of the Dem debates, and the NY Post's Sohrab Ahmari on the crisis on the border and yes, his criticism of David French and a branch of Conservatism in general...

Ricochet Podcast > Ep. 394: How Sweet It Is

Sponsored by Bombfell, Quip, The Great Courses First, apologies to all of our faithful listeners for being 24 hours late with this edition of the Ricochet Podcast -- we were felled by technical issues yesterday with the first half of the show. But this one is worth the wait: first, Original Cast Member Rob Long is back from making TV great again and has been seated in his rightful place in the host chair (from Miami Beach, no less)...
