474. The Washington Nationalists

We're down a homme this week (details about that in the show), but we're still full to the brim on compelling and clever conversation with our guest National Review editor Rich Lowry, who stops by to talk about his new book, The Case for Nationalism: How It Made Us Powerful, United, and Free. Is America an idea or a nation? Or both? It's a wide ranging and detailed conversation (as planned, which is why we only have one guest this week) and raises a lot of interesting points about the pluses and minuses of the movement at the forefront of the political debate not only in America, but in many other countries as well. Also, hats off to @drbastiat for winning this week's much coveted Lileks Post of The Week award for his The Paradoxical Popularity of Progressive Professionals post. Finally, because we have to, we check in on impeachment and wind up the show revealing our favorite Thanksgiving dishes. Mmmmm, sweet potato with marshmallows.

We're off next week. Happy Thanksgiving to all of our listeners, especially the ones who are members, and we'll see you in December!

Music from this week's show: My Country ';Tis Of Thee by Aretha Franklin

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)...
