Fireside hangout with smart people = A+

Deep thoughts, and quality content, presented in a casual, freewheeling atmosphere. Thanks for doing what you do!

Two hours of a.m. drunkenness

Moynihan is a twisted perverted genius, Kmele is...nuanced, and Matt Welch is America’s Assclown.

Moynihan for President!

Michael Moynihan’s two solo performances were engrossing, informative, and very entertaining. His guests, as are all the guests on the podcast were knowledgeable, and provided deep background on the subjects covered: North Ireland’s Troubles, and writer Jon Robson. It’s just fun to hear Moynihan talk, on any subject.
One problem I have, though, is with the Fifth Column website.
They provide links to Facebook and Twitter for comments or praise or something else, but no email addresses. I really want no part of either of these sites, on religious grounds, but the only email address I could find was at reason.com, and I have no idea if this account is active or not. Please provide us with the form for email accounts at the Fifth Column on the website.
Reason.com’s is first initial, full name @reason.com.
Thanks
