A great weekly listen

Take a slightly cynical Hollywood screen writer, an erudite Stanford academic and most definitely cynical but incredible witty and turner of phrase Midwest reporter, all a bit right of center but willing to discuss, joke, quarrel and talk, yes talk with such joy and you have yourself a great hour.

I’ve been listening to these guys for several years now, usually on my Saturday morning long run. As much as I enjoy running this can made even the worst long slog a pleasure. There are always times of laughter and consistent enlightenment.

Even if you’re left of center you will enjoy and gain insight and not feel like been harangued (a la Tucker) or listened to a used car salesman as with Hannity.

Yes, subscribe, listen regularly and enjoy.

Why I never miss one of these

The interplay between Rob, Peter and James is always fun and informative. The guests are terrific and given room to answer fully. Today’s bonus interview with Victor Davis Hansen was a special treat.

Less Rob please

I listen religiously but his smarminess is getting hard to take. Not as brilliant as he thinks he is.
