HWX, Episode 7

The latest edition of HWX podcast is up and ready for your listening pleasure. With the croaking of Osama Bin Laden, it's a war on terrorism heavy, yet still jovial and light-hearted, hour of discussion.

The highlight is an interview with Richard Miniter, author of Mastermind: The Many Faces of 9/11 Architect Khalid Shaikh Mohammed. It's a fascinating book (sample chapter available here). Miniter is an investigative journalist and among the foremost experts in the world on al-Queda and US counter terrorism efforts. I believe I learned more about these topics in this 30 minute interview than I have from all other sources in the 10 years since the WTC attack.

Later, OBL related Loon of the Week (Geraldo Rivera) and a multi-media This Week in Gatekeeping extravaganza, featuring the many faces of those in the media confusing the names "Osama" and "Obama".

Many ways to hear the podcast, including over on the mothership at Ricochet. You can also subscribe via iTunes or Feedburner. Or get the stream for your mobile device on Sticher. Or just use the player embedded below. If all of these fail, send me an email and I'll come to your house and read from the written transcript. Enjoy!
