#TFH on #VLR 4/23: @EdMorrissey talks about @GoingRedBook! Book giveaway!

TFHRsquareVLR-SaturdayUPDATE: REPLAY ADDED!! Tonight (Saturday, April 23rd) on Their Finest Hour I’m honored to welcome back Hot Air‘s Ed Morrissey (@EdMorrissey) back to the program and Vigilant Liberty Radio! Ed has written a great new book, Going Red: The Two Million Voters Who Will Elect the Next President—and How Conservatives Can Win Them, and it’s very cool that he agreed to include TFH as part of his book tour! I just got done pre-recording Ed’s segment for tonight, and I can guarantee you’ll find it very interesting!

Going Red is a book for activists and ordinary folks alike, and applies far beyond the electoral politics of 2016. To encourage folks to listen to tonight’s show and to read Ed’s book, I will be giving away an electronic copy (Kindle, Nook, or iBooks – pick your platform) of Going Red to one lucky listener or caller tonight! To be eligible, you’ve got to either be in the VLR chatroom while the show is live, tweet me (@allanbourdius), or call in during hour 2 of the program, when I can open up the floor to discussion.

As mentioned, I’ll have open phones in hour 2 – (412) 206-6050 – along with my additional commentary on Going Red, plus my usual round up of politics, news, and culture. I also have an invite out to another Trump supporter, so fingers-crossed for more engagement!

The fun all starts at 10pm Eastern/7pm Pacific! Again, please join us in VLR’s chatroom. If you’re not going to be in the chat, you can listen direct on Spreaker or using a Spreaker mobile app.

Here’s the replay! Congratulations to artist and regular listener Jett Atwood who received the copy of Going Red! Also, thanks to VLR’s Amy Curtis (@moderncomments) for calling in and helping me get my rant on in hour two! (MP3 Download for offline listening)

#TFH on #VLR 10/12 – @EdMorrissey in Hour 1; @moderncomments on #LFNYC!

TFHRsquareVLR2Their Finest Hour returns LIVE to Vigilant Liberty Radio at 10pm Eastern, 7pm Pacific! Please come listen to the program in our chatroom and interact with me and my guests! However, if you don’t want to chat, you can listen using the other available players here or direct over on Spreaker.

First up tonight will be HotAir editor Ed Morrissey (@EdMorrissey) with talk on current political happenings such as the GOP leadership crisis in the House of Representatives, the ongoing “drip, drip” of the Hillary Clinton email scandal, the Benghazi investigation backlash allegations of being partisan driven, we’re on the eve of the first Democratic presidential debate, and the GOP candidates still can’t seem to get out of Trump’s shadow.IMG_6696

In hour two, I’ll be welcoming VLR’s own Amy Curtis (@moderncomments) of Modern Comments Radio (Wednesday Nights, 10E/7P). Amy and I attended Liberty Fest NYC this past weekend. We saw some very good speakers and some…well…let’s just say eclectic ones.

During hour two, I’ll definitely open up the phones, so if you have your own point you’d like to sound off on, that’ll be your chance! Be sure to be listening for the call in instructions!

#TFH Live on #VLR 2/2: We’ll run the ball!

UPDATE: REPLAY ADDED!! Their Finest Hour returns live to Vigilant Liberty Radio tonight at 10pm Eastern, 7pm Pacific! Last night was Super Bowl XLIX, naturally, and given the way it ended, we’ll be running the ball across the goal line of a great show!

Joining me first will be Ed Morrissey (@EdMorrissey) of HotAir for a return visit to the program! We’ll be going over the latest in politics and culture as he’s been covering them.

Hour two? Well…that’s still kind of in a TBD state, so I’ll likely have open phones and open discussion, plus an impromptu guest or two.

In any case, please come join us in the VLR chat room with embedded show player for the program! If you don’t want to chat, you can listen using the player at the right or via Spreaker on the VLR page or using one of their mobile device apps.

10E/9C/8M/7P!

And here’s tonight’s replay! In addition to Ed, I was also joined by Liz Harrison, George Templeton, Chris T. Rex, and Amanda McCallister! Click the show title in the player if you want to download an MP3 for offline listening.

Cataclysmic Clash: Gamers vs. Journalists

A ton of things have happened since my last post on what is now known as Gamer Gate.  Some hours after it went live several gaming websites, who won’t be named and won’t be linked because they don’t deserve the traffic, posted articles all containing the same theme: “Gamers” are dead, they don’t have to be our audience, and this controversy is little more than the death rattle of a white male misogynistic culture.  One of these articles even went so far as to decry “fun” being the primary criteria by which we determine how good a game is.

TFH Live, June 23: Back and Better Than Ever!

UPDATE: Replay Added!! I’m back live tonight on Vigilant Liberty Radio after my one week off for my son’s trip to camp with the Cub Scouts! Tonight’s guest will be HotAir.com‘s Ed Morrissey (@EdMorrissey)! We’ll have a round-up of whatever is breaking news from today, plus talk on the Cantor aftermath and GOP House leadership shake-up, the deteriorating situation in Iraq, the IRS scandal, Hillary Clinton’s cratering book launch, and more!

The show starts at 10pm Eastern, 7pm Pacific. You can get the program right here at TFH in the right sidebar player, just refresh the page at show time to get the live stream. You can also use the VLR page at Spreaker, but ideally I’d like to see you in the VLR chat room while you listen (show player there too!).

And…here’s the replay!
