Practical Intelligence over a civil, yet spirited, conversation on politics, culture, and civil society. Episode #44 we discuss sound science, economic growth, and terrorism.
The LangerCast … Join the conversation for civil society. Andrew Langer and I talk the Congressional CR-omnibus, CIA enhanced interrogations, Hands-off/Don’t Loot vs. Hands-up/Don’t Shoot, Van Halen and the 1986 music scene, Derek Jeter for Senate, choke-point politics, and much more.
Andrew Langer and Jerry Rogers break down the issues in a civil, yet spirited, conversation. On this episode of the LangerCast, Andrew and Jerry discuss the events in Ferguson, the Rule of Law, the president’s immigration action, crony capitalism, and much more.

Jerry Rogers joined Focus Today on The DoveTV to discuss the Keystone XL pipeline and energy independence. Opposition to the pipeline is purely ideological–lacking any environmental, political, or economic justification.
Click here to join the best political talk anywhere … Andrew and I discuss Jonathan Gruber, and how “Gruberization” impacts the national discussion and demeans our politics. We then tackle the issues of energy independence, the #FailMary vote on the Keystone XL pipeline, GMO science, and crony capitalism.
The best political talk anywhere … Andrew Langer and I are joined by the Taxpayers Protection Alliance’s Michi Iliazi to talk weddings (Colleen Rogers); Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber (who thinks you’re stupid); why the Left is wrong about the midterm elections and voter turnout; the president pressuring the FCC on regulating the internet; the Postal Service delivering groceries; and much, much more. We also set the record straight for David Barclay on The Langer Cast vs. Laura Ingraham.
Aloha from the Big Red Wave! Episode 32 of @The LangerCast is up! Andrew and I were live from the American Conservative Union’s Election Night Party.
A great cast of characters sat and paneled with us, helped us to break down the returns as they came in – and discussed with us solutions to issues and painted a picture of how the GOP might govern come January.
Are the anti-GMO activists pushing flawed labeling requirements in the states? What is their true agenda–a ban on GM science or the consumer’s right-to-know? What’s best–a patchwork of 50 different labeling regimes or one standard under FDA authority? Listen here as we discuss GMO labeling in a civil, yet spirited, debate on Grass Roots Radio Colorado with Kris Cook.
We get a surprise phone call from the “streets of the Bronx.”
Andrew and I give a preview of next week’s midterm elections, and discuss Hillary Clinton’s boneheaded statement last week that businesses don’t create jobs.
We talk about why civil society matters and why race hustling is failing. Then we talk about cronyism in the lame duck session.
Finally, we circle back to the tour of the Bronx – I remember growing up in the North Bronx near the Tracey Towers, and Andrew discusses his Dad’s family in Crotona Park and Riverdale. We talk about the importance of family, community, and that it’s never too late to give thanks and show gratitude.
Music on this week’s show: The Sweet, Run DMC, Pilot, Joe Jackson, Stevie Wonder, War.
Episode 30 of the LangerCast is up and ready for your enjoyment! “We’ve Seen All Good People”— recapping Homecoming weekend(s) (both mine and Andrew’s). Andrew talks about what makes great people—like the wonderful group of friends he saw this past weekend.
Then, we go back and revisit the story of Houston subpoena-ing pastors, and talk about the Coeur D’Alene, Idaho situation. Andrew talks about the nature of rights, how rights intersect, and how to relieve tensions when rights clash.
Finally, we talk about Ron Klain’s appointment as Ebola Czar, just what this portends for the American republic generally and the Obama administration specifically. How Klain’s appointment compares to Stuart Simonson’s, and the hue and cry that would have been raised had a Republican president appointed Karl Rove to be Ebola Czar.
Music this week from Grandmaster Flash, Greg Kihn, Lyn Johnson, the Pretenders (among others) and we close out (on the recommendation of Rob Lane) with Wilson Pickett singing Hey Jude, accompanied by a then-unknown Duane Allman.
