Busy week, which ended with podcast additional time pay for me. And so for the primary time, two for the value of 1!
First up, our common installment of the Three Whisky Joyful Hour. This week we shake up the format, and skip over our gratuitous whisky evaluations and commentary on the highest information tales of the week, and head straight in to the classroom for our long-postponed seminar on constitutional originalism, rightly understood.

Backside line: jurists have to assume loads tougher about some primary questions of political philosophy. Curious listeners can discover extra background on the entire matter right here and right here, for starters.
Then on the finish we save a couple of minutes to replace final week’s information merchandise about whether or not France goes to avoid wasting America, and a few private reminiscences about Rush Limbaugh.
And to not fear: we nonetheless find time for a bit of whisky discuss. I had the Glenfiddich Fireplace & Cane (pictured above), and Lucretia sampled the Glenfiddich 18-year previous (left). (And I swear we didn’t coordinate this!)
Pay attention right here, or from our hosts at Ricochet.
And on Friday, I sat in for the vacationing Rob Lengthy on the flagship Ricochet podcast, wherein we discuss with Ayaan Hirsi Ali about her new e-book Prey, break down the Texas electrical energy breakdown, reminisce about Rush Limbaugh, the Mars touchdown, and different matters (together with my idea about Mitch McConnell—BTW, pleased 79th birthday to McConnell at the moment).
Bonus: If you happen to hear all the way in which to the very very finish, you’ll catch me on the blooper reel for the episode. One enjoyable factor about doing the Ricochet podcast is the good customized art work they at all times provide you with:
