HWX: Bubble Boys

HWX returns with Brian Ward of Fraters Libertas and Paul Happe, the Nihilst in Golf Pants discussing the critical issues of the week:
* The new “Schoolyard” PSA about the importance of voting and some underappreciated aspects of this searing indictment on voter apathy. Also a broader discussion of the alleged sanctity of the franchise.
* The new feature “In the Bubble” featuring Ira Glass of This American Life and Jake Tapper of CNN. They put on the mantle of fact checkers and truth tellers regarding the ignorance of Donald Trump and his birther related speech earlier this month. We fact check the fact checkers and speak truth to the truth tellers and end up covered in soapy residue.
* What were they drinking this episode? A Deschutes Inversion IPA and a Summit Great Northern Porter.
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.  Hope you enjoy.
