Right smack in the middle of the RNC convention, we interview in-house political expert Jennifer Marsico to get her take on the convention so far. Why brave the confetti and angry Ron Paul delegates on the convention floor when you can have Jen review the big speeches, examine the party platform, and look at where the party seems to be pointing itself? Jen also previews major road signs that listeners should watch out for as the campaign progresses. As a bonus, we sit down with friend-of-the-show Daniel Hanson to discuss the latest installment of the AEI debate series. Spoiler: Andrew struggles to find interest in a debate that centers on sports amateurism.

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.
On this episode of Banter, Stu and Andrew (subbing in for Apoorva), sit down with the President of AEI, Arthur Brooks, to discuss AEI’s 40,000 word mission statement, free enterprise culture, what book everyone needs to read, why libertarians just can’t get a break at the box office, and much more. Ideas zig and zag around this episode faster than you can say American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research. Enjoy!
Stay tuned for part two of our interview with Arthur Brooks which will be posted tomorrow!
On this very special episode of Banter, Apoorva and Stu sit down with AEI visiting scholar and National Review Online editor-at-large Jonah Goldberg to talk about Paul Ryan and 2012 presidential politics, Israel and Bibi Netanyahu’s speech to Congress, and even some Simpsons trivia.
