This morning from 9-12 ET I will be guest-hosting on Sirius XM Insight's Stand UP! with Pete Dominick show, which you can find at 121 on your channel-finder. (I will also be hosting next Monday and Tuesday at the same time, and in fact hosted Tuesday of this week as well.) It's a loose-limbed and interactive format, so call anytime at 1-877-974-7487 to give me some ideological backup (and fashion critiques), though of course it will also be jam-packed with guests. To wit:

* Delaware Dave Weigel, the beloved if commenter-controversial former Reasoner-turned WashPost politics guy. We will be talking mostly about his marvelously named forthcoming book The Show That Never Ends: The Rise and Fall of Prog Rock, with maybe some politics sprinkled in.

* Michael Weiss, editor in chief of The Interpreter, and author of ISIS: Inside the Army of Terror. We will be talking about the Russkies.

* Benjamin K. Bergen, cognitive scientist and author of the new What the F: What Swearing Reveals About Our Language, Our Brains, and Ourselves. We will be talking about self-censorship in book titles.

* Michael G. Long and Chris Lamb, academics and co-authors of the new book Jackie Robinson: A Spiritual Biography: The Faith of a Boundary-Breaking Hero. We will be mashing up Good Friday and Jackie Robinson.

* And finally, Michael Brendan Dougherty of The Week and The Slurve. We will be discussing our own personal Jesuses.

  1. I”ll take “shitty books nobody will read” for a hundred Alex!

    1. I always wanted to know what youe voice sounds like, Weigel. We all know you are Weigel, “Mikey.” You are outed.

      1. Pretty obvious at this point. How else would he know to show up first thing for this thread?

  2. I don’t have Sirius or I’d be tuning in for Weiss.

  3. As I said, Trump’s playing chess why some out there are playing connect four.

    Trump signs into law bill allowing funding cuts for planned parenthood.
    Planned Parenthood cuts

  4. controversial

    I wouldn’t go that far

    You know how you sometimes blow your nose, and its like, 5x more than you expected, and its full of blood, and you recoil in horror like you accidentally expelled bits of your brain?

    Its more like that.

  5. David Weigel. Not sure who he was, so looked him up and this guy does not seem like a Libertarian to me.

    He has written for the worst socialist rags out there and not to be the counter to their inked tyranny either.

    1. I thought he got fired by the WaPo when he was caught on Journo-list calling conservatives “Teafucking Ratbaggers” while covering conservative politics. I guess they just hid him for a while.

      He blocked me on Twitter for recommending “ProActive”… :o)

    2. He’s also a sick manic-depressive by his own public admission, not to mention that the reason Ezra Klein’s secret JournoList listserv of lefty democrat media hacks got exposed is because he’s such an asshole and so hated by everyone that someone else in the group basically ratted him out as the fraudulent lying piece of crap that he is.

  6. Um, Matt I hate to break this to you but Reason destroyed the commentariat. You had a group of dedicated loyal followers who had built up a real and lasting community around your magazine, something most media outlets would literally kill for and in a period of less than 6 months you systematically killed it off

    That is United Airlines level of management stupidity right there.

    And now you’re going to post about the commenters as if nothing happened? Fuck you Matt, check the comment counts, most of us are gone and we ain’t coming back.

    What I wouldn’t give to see your page click and engagement stats over the last 6 months
