Mad Dogs and Englishmen Podcast in the Midday Sun

Some of you may be aware that Kevin Williamson and I do a daily podcast, Mad Dogs and Englishmen. It runs between 10 and 30 minutes each day (more usually 30), and we cover a wide range of topics, usually from a conservative/libertarian perspective. It’s proving quite popular, but I’m aware that I’ve never told the Corner that it existed. So here it is: It exists.

Today, we had a long argument about the merits of Cliven Bundy’s revolt, picking up themes that we’d expressed over on the homepage here (pro), here (pro), and here (anti). We also talked about my trip to the Smith and Wesson factory yesterday.

If you enjoy it, you can listen daily at NRO, or subscribe for automatic downloads through iTunes, Stitcher, TuneIn, the Windows Store, Blackberry Podcasts – or whatever you want using the RSS feed. There’s also a website.

CNN’s Shameful Town Hall

CNN recently hosted an anti-gun town hall featuring a number of grieving children and parents from Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., who aimed their ire at the National Rifle Association, politicians peripherally associated with the NRA, and anyone who didn’t say exactly what they wanted to hear. ...

The Gun-Control Debate Could Break America

Last night, the nation witnessed what looked a lot like an extended version of the famous “two minutes hate” from George Orwell’s novel 1984. During a CNN town hall on gun control, a furious crowd of Americans jeered at two conservatives, Marco Rubio and Dana Loesch, who stood in defense of the Second ... Read More
