Episode number 100! Thank you to all our listeners who’ve supported the show for 100 great episodes. This week, we sit down with AEI scholar Jonah Goldberg to discuss the grisly Gosnell trial and the media coverage surrounding it. We also talk about how the demand for government to “do-something” in response to perceived problems distorts public policy. How do conservatives operate in a society where “do-something-ism” is rampant? Plus: Thoughts on love, life, loss, and more on a very special episode of Days of our Lives Banter! Here’s to 100 more episodes!

This week on Banter, we sit down with Editor-in-Chief of the Daily Caller, Tucker Carlson. Tucker talks to us about working in D.C., the media landscape, and some current event issues. He also gives us his take on the “fiscal cliff” (two words: Swan Dive) and we finish up discussing the worst job he’s ever had.
Andrew and I also spend a little time discussing a blog post by Friend-of-the-Show Andrew Biggs about raising the retirement age. Hope you enjoy!
In the latest episode of Banter, Tim Mak sits down to discuss his experience as a news reporter at Politico. We talk about some of the recent stories he’s covered, including the Virginia ultra-sound bill, the Rush Limbaugh controversy, and the recent etch-a-sketch comments. Tim shares what it’s like covering news during a campaign and the state of the news media today.
