Mollie on the Podcast

Mollie Hemingway is a guest on the most recent Ricochet flagship podcast. I know a lot of you guys aren’t necessarily fans of this podcast but I think most of you are fans of Mrs. Hemingway. Her part of the podcast starts at about 16:30. She discusses her new book Justice on Trial: The Kavanaugh Confirmation and the Future of the Supreme Court. She and her coauthor interviewed many people involved in the nomination and confirmation hearings. You will learn new things by listening to this.

I don’t consume the podcast via the website but that’s one way to get it:

    Knowing book reviews as I do you can probably find another podcast and hear the same stuff. Just search her on YouTube. Don’t feed that miserable website.

    The Ricochet flagship podcast is free; you do not need to be a subscriber to listen to it.  It is also available on a number of free streaming services such as Podbean, iTunes, and Stitcher.  The podcast audio does, of course, contain the usual down-market advertisements, but you can fast forward through them.

    True but they can also see how many people have listened which is how they sell advertising. I say avoid them altogether.

    I always enjoy Mollie’s opinion. Ricochet was never the same without her.

    She’s also the one who was always promoting Fred’s stuff so she’s partly to blame for what it turned into.

    I disagree. I think she could handle divergent voices which made Ricochet fun.

  4. I changed this post to extra hot instead of mild. Who knew it would be so controversial!

    Is there such a thing as RDS (Ricochet derangement syndrome)?

    No but there is such a thing as to hell with the bastards.

    There is also just having fun and freedom again. It is great to have a place that people can have spirited debates without the patronizing. One can even allege derangement and people can get a chuckle. (Or it might just be me chuckling.)

    By the time I’ve fast-forwarded through the commercials I don’t want to hear, and then the hosts I can do without … mirabile dictu, the podcast is over! It’s almost like being a graduate of the Evelyn Wood Academy of Speed Listening.

    Nah, just kidding: haven’t been to that site (or, listened to their damned podcast)  in over  a year; they can pound dirt down a rat hole and jump in after. Meanwhile — pace Bob McReynolds — I’ve been able to find Mollie and her coauthor elsewhere. I also read their book.

    I’m not sure what there is to disagree with. She was the one promoting nearly everything he wrote early on when he first started writing deliberately provocative, attention-seeking posts that did nothing but anger people for his own self-aggrandizement. What R> turned into with the loss of civility and intellectual sclerosis while playing favorites with who was and wasn’t moderated originated in that period. That’s not speculation; that’s directly from people who worked there. Contrast how Kenneth was handled. One was banned, the other was promoted to a contributor.
