What are Ed Driscoll and I going to do this weekend? The same thing we do every weekend — steal the PJM Political signal from Sirius/XM Satellite radio, and turned it into a podcast. On this big show this week:
Ed Driscoll interviews Jonah Goldberg, the editor at large of National Review Online, and the author of the best-selling (and prescient) Liberal Fascism, on his essay, “Big Bedfellows”-the deeply intertwined connections between big business and big government. (With cameo appearances from well-known General Electric employees Tom Brokaw and Bob Costas.)
James Lileks on the controversy surrounding President Obama presenting Queen Elizabeth with an iPod.
Pajamas Media CEO Roger L. Simon interviews Michael Patrick Leahy, the co-founder of Top Conservatives on Twitter, on the surprising popularity of Twitter.com, the wide-open social network and messaging service.
Bill Whittle of PJTV and Pajamas Media Xpress interviews PJM Political host Steve Green, and Mark Hemingway of National Review Online on the “JournoList”-the closed network of 300 liberal inside-the-beltway journalists and opinion makers.
Andrew Klavan, novelist and author of Don’t Say A Word (adapted into a movie starring Michael Douglas) and True Crime (adapted into a movie directed and starring Clint Eastwood), and a PajamasXpress blogger on the state of the American culture wars.
Plus, Ed and I talk about the ouster of General Motors CEO Rick Wagoner, and more.
