HWX: The Crazy Uke

Its a weekend special edition of the Hinderaker-Ward Experience (HWX), with John Hinderaker of Power Line and Brian Ward of Fraters Libertas reconvening to discuss the vital issues of the age.  Topics addressed include:

*  Data on the historically brutal nature of this winter in Minnesota

*  The demand for action now on climate change by John Kerry

*  The situation in the Ukraine with guest Andriy Karkos (i.e., the “Crazy Uke” from Lileks World)

*  The status of the Obama foreign policy reset with Russia

*  Loon of the Week (Harry Reid on the TRUTH about Obamacare)

*  This Week in Gatekeeping  (advanced journalism tip – don’t assume whoever answers the phone is the Congressional candidate you wanted to interview)

We also discussed the Minneapolis Ricochet Meet Up next Saturday, March 8.  It’s at Keegan’s Pub in Minneapolis, featuring James Lileks, John Hinderaker, Brian Ward and lot of other friends from Minnesota media and politics. It's starts at 5pm, all are invited, and we’d love to meet any listeners to HWX.

There are many ways to hear the podcast, including over on the mother ship at Ricochet.  You can be sure to never miss an episode by subscribing via iTunes.  Or you can just use the player embedded in the upper right hand corner of this website.  If all of these fail, send me an email and I'll come to your house and read from a written transcript.  Hope you enjoy.
