5.27 – Crony Capitalism, ‘Ask the Counselor,’ Hiroshima, and Bruce Klingner of @Heritage

Occasionally, I’ll get a private message that says “It’s great when you have two guests on the show.” I understand that to mean, “It’s better when someone other than you is talking.”

Frankly, I agree and today’s show – with 2 great guests – was no exception to that rule.

Listen to the entire show here:

“Ask the Counselor” with Dan Chambers

Dan and I FINALLY got to the long-awaited topic about the change-of-venue for the OJ Simpson murder trial from Santa Monica to downtown L.A. The conversation was inspired by FX’s great series, The People Vs OJ Simpson, and that Dan was working for the LA County District Attorney’s office at the time meant he had a perspective on the trial shared by very few.

The key takeaway: Dan (and others working as ADA’s in the office) was certain that OJ would be acquitted as soon as the trial was moved.

We concluded talking about a recent Supreme Court decision about race-based jury selection. There are some common threads between this case and the OJ trial, as the racial makeup of the latter certainly had a significant impact on the decision.

HausGuest – Bruce Klingner

Today’s was Bruce’s first return to the show, since being on 2 1/2 months ago, and as a Senior Research Fellow at The Heritage Foundation, he’s certainly my go-to expert about all things related to Asian/U.S. international affairs.

The President’s visit to Hiroshima dominated the segment. We’d set up the topic days in advance, but by the time the show went live, the President had JUST given a much-anticipated speech. We talked about the speech, the historical and military context of the 2 bombs we dropped, and the hand-wringing and second-guessing that have occurred ever since.

After the show aired, Bruce published both of these EXCELLENT articles on the topic:Screen Shot 2016-05-27 at 5.28.20 PM
