In This Episode:

In the aftermath of the Capitol Siege, Americans need to reflect and reconcile that with great freedom comes great responsibility. In this episode, Trish, the legendary P.J. O’Rourke, and special guest former U.S. Representative Ron Paul delve into listener questions to detangle the current political nightmare. The discussion touches upon our ever-growing partisan divisiveness, the accountability of Big Tech, and questions around the First Amendment.  For more from Trish Regan follow her on twitter @Trish_Regan & visit

P.J. O’Rourke

Editor in Chief
P.J. is the H. L. Mencken fellow at the Cato Institute, a member of the editorial board of World Affairs and a regular panelist on NPR’s Wait… Wait… Don’t Tell Me. He lives with his family in rural New England, as far away from the things he writes about as he can get.

Episode Extras:

  • First Amendment questions addressed around Big Tech de-platforming individual conservative voices.

  • The problem with Social Media silos and echo chambers, which has worsened during quarantine and lockdowns.
  • The Republican Party needs to refocus on economic values and fiscal discipline to have a viable future.
  • Trump ultimately lost the election due to a fundamental lack of leadership during the pandemic.
  • Former Congressman Ron Paul details his ordeal surrounding censorship.
