New Episide of The Fifth Column Features Anthony L. Fisher on Muhammad Ali's Anti-War Legacy, and So Much More

Also, Michael Moynihan and Matt Welch talk about what it's like to be among the clapping seals in the audience of Real Time with Bill Maher.


On this week's episode of the only podcast you will ever need — The Fifth Column — Kmele Foster, former Reasoner Michael C. Moynihan, and Reason magazine editor-in-chief Matt Welch were gracious enough to invite me back on to kick around such various topics as Donald Trump getting called out (but not disowned) by Republican bigwigs for his overt racism, Bernie Sanders being accused of misogyny by a New York Times reporter, and the latest edition of #SomeIdiotWroteThis. Plus, Moynihan and Welch give us an inside peak at what it's like to be a guest (and how hard it is to make a cogent point) on Real Time with Bill Maher

Stick around for the end when Foster takes me to task for what he claims was my "whitewashing" of Muhammad Ali's legacy. Suffice to say, I don't take the critique lying down. But this is a great example of why The Fifth Column is worth your time — it's not an echo chamber or a back-slapping confab of the like-minded — mixing it up is the name of the game.
