Steven Hayward brings you the Power Line Blog's perspective on the week's big headlines.
The Three Whisky Happy Hour: What’s In the News Today, Oh Boy!
This is the week we learned that there is a reason we’ll miss Jen Psaki at the White House (plus a shout out to the forgotten Dee Dee Myers, who looks pretty good in retrospect); that the Anthony Scaramucci duration-in-office scale remains useful for marking the tenure in office of Nina Jankowitz (who nonetheless lasted […]
The Three Whisky Happy Hour: Mulish Voting Edition
There are so many things that seem . . . wrong about the 2020 election, and now comes the new documentary film “2000 Mules” offering some visually compelling circumstantial evidence, along with a few examples of direct testimony of voting misbehavior in nursing homes and other locales. A lot of readers and listeners have been […]
The Three Whisky Happy Hour: Special Leakgate Edition
Owing partly to travel schedules that prevent our normal and proper Friday evening happy hour to debrief the week, combined with the shocking leak of the prospective Supreme Court opinion in the Dobbs case, we decided to declare a special mid-week happy hour with Scott and John joining in the libations, along with a special […]
The Three Whisky Happy Hour: Dezinformatsiya Edition

The Three Whisky Happy Hour: Glenn Ellmers on the Jordan Peterson Phenomenon
Jordan Peterson took the intellectual world by storm in 2016, bursting on the scene in a way not seen by a non-leftist thinker since Allan Bloom in the late 1980s. His idiosyncratic mix of Jungian psychology, existential philosophy, and common-sense self-help advice (also lobsters!) as expressed in his best-seller 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote […]
Antidote to Marxist Bourgeoise
Chicken Little has no voice on this show. The sky is not falling.
Charles Murray Episode
I was about to tune in for Charles Murray but then I looked up Steve Sailer’s credentials and opted not to. Giving voice to heterodox ideas is one thing but platforming a Holocaust-denying, scientific racist who writes a regular column for VDARE is several bridges too far.
The Neatest Power Line Three Whisky Happy Hour
The hosts and their topics, humor, pace and guests are both enjoyable and educational. I look forward to this podcast as much as I do publication of the Week in Pictures.
