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!
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.
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!
UPDATE: REPLAY ADDED!! Their Finest Hourreturns 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 HotAirfor 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.
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.
Their Finest Hour is taking Monday, October 13th off from live broadcasting on Vigilant Liberty Radio, so I’ve queued up two great replays for you! Either catch up on what you missed, or enjoy them all over again!
UPDATE: REPLAY ADDED!! I’m returning live to Vigilant Liberty Radio at 10pm Eastern/7pm Pacific on Monday, September 29th for another great edition of Their Finest Hour! I’ve got a great program planned with two fantastic guests for an evening of talk on both domestic and foreign news and policy items!
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.
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!
