HWX: Election Frauds

It’s a special pre-election edition of HWX, with Brian Ward of Fraters Libertas and Paul Happe, the Nihilist in Golf Pants.   Issues discussed include:

*  A review of this past week’s focus on Ricochet from NPR’s “This American Life”.  Also, the return of This Week in Gate Keeping featuring, coincidentally, NPR and This American Life and their observations of James Lileks’s voting preferences. 

*  A (quick) analysis of Evan McMullin’s chances of eking this one out.   Plus exclusive audio of the new Evan McMullin-Mindy Finn campaign ad soon to be blanketing the airwaves.

*  “In the Bubble” with Marc Maron.  On a recent episode of his WTF podcast he gave his opinion of those who might be considering voting for Donald Trump.  We straighten him out on exactly why perfectly rational and sophisticated voters would do just that.

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.
