HWX returns for a final, gala broadcast of 2014. Brian Ward of Fraters Libertas and, filling in for a still vacationing John Hinderaker, Paul Happe, aka the Nihilist in Golf Pants, reconvene to discuss the critical issues of our time. Topics include:
* Sony Pictures vs. North Korea and the lingering ramifications on the culture wars and humanity’s capacity for freedom
* Minnesota’s lack of a white Christmas and the adult beverages we turn to for solace* Loon of the Week, featuring Anderson Cooper
* This Week in Gatekeeping, and the link (or no link) between cancer and breastfeeding.
We were also pleased to be joined by Rep. Michele Bachmann (MN-6). In a pre-taped interview moments after her final speech on the floor of the US House of Representatives, Michele reminisces on her eight, sometimes tumultuous, years in Congress. Michele addresses her thoughts on leaving office, her victories and her setbacks, and how she dealt with the specter of despair in the face of so much resistance and withering criticism.
