Thanks to The American Spectator for printing my essay on Rush Limbaugh in the Summer 2020 edition of the magazine. I attempt to explain how he conquered the medium and has changed radio in his 32 years hosting the show.

I’ve written a couple of recent pieces at National Review Online:
The Radio Free Hillsdale Hour is a one-hour, weekly radio show/podcast advancing the efforts of Hillsdale College in radiating its knowledge and teaching to the world outside of campus.

We tackle my favorite band with Jay Cost.
Could examining the subject of the #1 movie in America make this the #1 podcast in America? Who knows! But it’s worth a shot.

A plan to block Asian carp from reaching the Great Lakes could cost Illinois taxpayers much more than expected.

I invite you to listen to a very special episode of @Political_Beats, as Jeff and I are joined by David Lowery to talk Camper Van Beethoven and Cracker. I love Camper, but Cracker is an all-time band for me. I own every piece of music they’re recorded. Seen them live 6 or 7 times. Hold the music in a very special place. And, as the episode illustrates, Lowery simply is *the* great, overlooked songwriter of his time.
Check it out here.
Excited to share the newest episode of Political Beats, in which Jessie Opoien of the The Capital Times joins us to discuss one of my all-time favorite bands, Old 97’s.
