Saying goodbye to WRKO

7/16/2012
After 374 Sunday’s, this was our final show on WRKO. It has been a great experience. I had many people to thank, starting with Gregg Jackson who pushed me into this crazy idea in the summer of 2004. There are lots of folks at WRKO to thank, from Todd Feinburg to Howie Carr to the great roster of producers, Sandy, Bernie, Producer Rob, Dan the Man, Ed, Horseshack. I don’t have a bad thing to say about WRKO. They gave me a great platform to do what I wanted for 374 weekends, so you won’t...

Walter Olson is a senior fellow at the Cato Institute’s Center for Constitutional Studies. He is also the man behind a great blog, Overlawyered, that turns 13 today! Congratulations! Finally, Walter is the author of a great book, Schools for Misrule: Legal Academia and an Overlawyered America. Tonight he returned to Pundit Review Radio to discuss the Obamacare ruling, Roberts rationale and whether he should be considered a statesmen or a sucker. Finally, I would have been remiss in my...

Why is hearing from the other side so offensive to some people?

6/13/2012
I welcomed my friend Jonathan Lewis back to the show this weekend. Jonathan is a liberal and someone I really enjoy talking politics with. Last time he was on, the conversation was mostly about the fine art of political discourse, agreeing to disagree without becoming disagreeable. That said, we never did get around to disagreeing much, so this weekend, we kept it simple, Does President Obama deserve a second term? Jonathan said yes and had every opportunity to make his case. That in and...

George Washington: Military Genius

6/5/2012
This was indeed an honor to speak with Gen. Dave Palmer, former Superintendent of West Point and author of a fantastic book, George Washington: Military Genius "Palmer, historian and former superintendent of West Point, makes a convincing case that America is free, united, and governed by civilians because of Washington’s strategic foresight and tactical brilliance. No subsequent revolution in a dozen other nations ended so happily. Palmer pooh-poohs historians who describe Washington as a...

Legal Insurrection's William Jacobson on Fauxchauntis

6/4/2012
With Fauxcahontas-gate entering month number two, we welcomed back to WRKO William Jacobson, an Ivy League law professor, to talk about Elizabeth Warren and her, ahem, authenticity problem. In the new media, this scandal has been advanced in two places, Breitbart, and Legal Insurrection, Professor Jacobson’s outstanding blog. The fact that Elizabeth Warren is still today claiming Indian heritage, despite all we’ve learned about the lack of evidence, is astounding. She’s not doubling down,...

Sen. Scott Brown meets Eric Maddox, author of Mission: Blacklist

5/21/2012
This was a double treat for our eight anniversary show on WRKO. One of my favorite guests has been Eric Maddox, author of Mission: Black List #1: The Inside Story of the Search for Saddam Hussein—As Told by the Soldier Who Masterminded His Capture. This book was fantastic and the story of how Staff Sergeant Maddox used Saddam’s social network to squeeze his close in support was fascinating. It’s about to get the Hollywood treatment with Twilight’s Robert Pattison in the starring role. Eric...

Is Obama spiking the football?

5/7/2012
What a rude host I am sometimes. I invite my friend Sam Bowlby to the WRKO studios for a couple of hours of radio fun and we lasted thirty minutes, bumped by the Red Sox game that would not end. The Celtics playoff pre-game show was starting on WEEI so baseball was headed to WRKO at 6:30pm. Sam, you may recall, is a veteran of two tours in Iraq. He graduated in 2004 from Hamilton College, one of the nation’s finest, and instead of law or business school, he entered the Marines. Two tours...

UMASS Boston political science chair Prof Maurice Cunningham

4/30/2012
We classed up the show last night by welcoming Professor Maurice Cunningham to the WRKO studio. While he may be the chair of UMASS Boston political science department, more important to us, he’s a terrific blogger, and yes, tweeter! In addition to some great columns for Commonwealth Magazine, Professor Cunningham writes at a great group blog, Mass Politics Profs. We discussed the impact of blogging and social media and we also talked a lot about Massachusetts politics. The Senate race is...

The Reformed Broker, Joshua Brown, discusses Backstage Wall St

4/8/2012
This was one of those weeks where I was chomping at the bit to get to WRKO. Joshua Brown is one of the premier financial bloggers, and for almost eight years (next month) my goal has been to bring the best of the blogs to the radio. We did that tonight. Josh’s blog The Reformed Broker is so good it has led to a column in Fortune Magazine, regular appearances on CNBC, and now, to his new book Backstage Wall Street: An Insider’s Guide to Knowing Who to Trust, Who to Run From, and How to...

Warren Wilkins, author of Grab Their Belts to Fight Them

3/28/2012
When I heard this book was blurbed by Bing West, I said, “Say no more, just send me a copy”. Well, that was a good decision. I learned a ton about the Vietnam War reading this book. It is very much written from the perspective of the Vietcong, using an amazing amaount of original source material. The title, Grab Their Belts to Fight Them, had a double meaning for me after finishing the book. Obviously, it is a reference to close quarters, hand-to-hand combat. It also speaks to the Vietcong’s...
