    Sen. Ben Sasse at the Aspen Security Forum

    Sen. Ben Sasse at the Aspen Security Forum

    Today’s episode of The Dispatch Podcastis a little bit different than the typical Friday version. Steve interviewed Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse at the Aspen Security Forum on the topic of America’s response to the digital revolution across the globe. Among some of the more interesting topics discussed: China and “chuckleheads,” as Sen. Sasse refers to some members of Congress. Sen. Sasse explains why even though the country faces an immense amount of problems he is still optimistic about the future.

The Dispatch has prided itself in educated fact based opinion and discussion. This is why I listen. This episode was not. The guest was not appropriately questioned and probed, there was little to no discussion. The guest, being interviewed as a witness was allowed to use the phrase “it’s my understanding” at least twice when describing events. So disappointing. Anyone who is a guest of Tucker Carlson for his culture war ammunition should surely raise alarm bells. It was not until David French referenced his experiences in Tennessee was there any attempt at balance.

My favorite news podcast

Love the editorial direction The Dispatch has taken since its founding a few years ago. Their podcast is an extension of that. Well done.

Insightful - Hilarious

I love the center-right insightful analysis and commentary. Unfortunately Jonah Goldberg and Chris Stierwalt are audibly indistinguishable, but today we got the decoder ring. Goat-rodeo - Stierwalt, Jack-Wad - Goldberg.
