Rick Wilson is brilliantly funny

Speaking of guillotines, I know where you can find one - have you heard of St. Pierre/Miquelon? Just off the coast of Newfoundland. Only used once.

Moment of …

Love the show. June 5, brief mention of ‘British conservative’ journalist moving into senior positions in USA media. Molly says too early to know what that will mean. Oh yes, we know! It’s time more US-based journalist report on the predatory, divisive nature of some print media in Britain (bylinetimes.com on Leveson Inquiry). And in an election year. Please, let’s not feign ignorance.

Andy Kim

Generally love your podcast but today was not one of those times. I’ll start by saying I am a screaming liberal so this isn’t partisan. Andy Kim basically held a pity party for himself that went on way too long. We get it Andy you’re not the preferred candidate! Crystal clear! As a host I think it’s your job to reel guests in - like Andy - when they do nothing but repeat unnecessary information over and over. He could have made his point and moved on. I learned nothing from the interview except that perhaps Andy is extremely fragile. I don’t live in NJ but this would not have made me more inclined to vote for him. I’ll continue listening but this interview was not awesome.
