Today, like last Wednesday (and in fact this Wednesday and Thursday), I have the honor to be sitting in the guest-host chair for Stand UP! with Pete Dominick on SiriusXM Insight (channel 121) from 9-12 a.m. ET. Among my five scheduled guests is longtime Republican political strategist and popular #NeverTrump snark-tosser Rick Wilson, who will talk about his brand new bestseller, Everything Trump Touches Dies: A Republican Strategist Gets Real About the Worst President Ever.

Other guests are scheduled to include:

* Steven Hyden, author of Twilight of the Gods: A Journey to the End of Classic Rock, who will talk about the Eagles' Greatest Hits recently overtaking Michael Jackson's Thriller as the best-selling record of all time.

* CNN Senior Political Analyst John Avlon, who will talk about the continuing crisis, plus whether centrism is really our ticket out.

* Richard "Balkans Bohemia" Byrne, who will talk about the 50th anniversary of the Warsaw Pact invasion of Czechoslovakia, and what the anti-communist philosophers can tell us about our current moment.

* CNN Senior Writer/Analyst Harry Enten, late of FiveThirtyEight, who will give his forecaster's snapshot of the midterms, hopefully some insight about the polling of Libertarians, and some explanation of his current piece, "Trump has gained among black voters since the 2016 election."

As ever, I welcome/treasure your heckling phone calls, at 1-877-974-7487.
