WS Radio: Ross Douthat


Listen live (QuickTime), Mondays, 4 - 6 p.m. EST

"Political Animals"--the flagship radio show of Western Standard radio--is a weekly political talk show on 88.1 WBGUFM hosted by Jay Lafayette, Peter Jaworski, and Terrence Watson.

On today's "Political Animals," Terrence, Jay and I will interview Ross Douthat, co-author of "Grand New Party: How Republicans can win the Working Class and save the American Dream." You can get a good sense of the book by checking out their bloggingheads discussion here.

We'll talk with Ross about his new book, conservatism in general, the challenge of the Libertarian Party, social liberalism and its "inherent" (as they put it) opposition to the values and interests of the working class, and the very meaning of "conservatism."

Political Animals is on every Monday from 4 to 6 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, broadcast out of 88.1 FM in the Bowling Green, Ohio area, and on www.wbgufm.com worldwide. To listen to a direct stream, click here (QuickTime). To participate in the discussion, you can call 888-7-WBGUFM, or send us an email at politicalanimals-at-wbgufm-dot-com.

Craig: Here's our RSS feed: http://www.westernstandard.ca/website/WSRadio/podcasts.php

We are in the midst of trying to get iTunes to erase our old RSS feed and replace it with the above. It's taking a long time...
