This very special episode of The RJ Moeller Show opens in a very unique way: R.J. and nationally syndicated radio show host Hugh Hewitt interview each other live on the air.
Hugh Hewitt is a lawyer, law professor and broadcast journalist whose show is heard in more than 120 cities across the United States every weekday afternoon. Professor Hewitt is a graduate of Harvard College and the University of Michigan Law School, and has been teaching Constitutional Law at Chapman University Law School since it opened in 1995. He's a frequent guest on CNN, Fox News Network, and MSNBC, and has written for papers such as The New York Times and Wall Street Journal. Mr. Hewitt writes daily for his blog, HughHewitt.com, which is among the most visited political blogs in the U.S. He is also a weekly columnist for The Washington Examiner and Townhall.com. His latest book, The Brief Against Obama, is out and available in hardcover now.
R.J. and Hugh talk about the Values & Capitalism project, the need for the Romney-Ryan ticket to explain the contrasting economic visions of both parties, and what it's like to share a cigar with Dennis Prager.
As if Hugh Hewitt weren't enough, we are ecstatic to welcome for the second segment of this week's podcast none other than one of our favorite media personalities: Mary Katharine Ham!
Mary Katharine is Editor-at-Large of HotAir.com. She is also a contributing editor to Townhall Magazine and a Fox News Channel contributor. Her name is often misspelled Mary Katherine Ham and she hates that. In her career she has held jobs at the Weekly Standard, Daily Caller, WMAL radio in DC and the Heritage Foundation.
We discuss Ms. Ham's career path, the liberal media bias that exists even in "red state" America, and her affinity for comedian Adam Carolla. Make sure to follow Mary Katharine on Twitter at @MKHammer!
Last, but certainly not least, we close this week's show out with appearances from our old pals Eric Teetsel (Manhattan Declaration) and Stu James (AEI). Stu co-hosts another AEI podcast - Banter - and Eric is the Executive Director over at ManhattanDeclaration.org. These two chat with R.J. about a recent Arthur Brooks Op-Ed in the Wall Street Journal on the whole notion of "earned success."
