How to Subscribe to Lawyers, Guns & Money: The Podcast

If for some inconceivable reason you prefer your podcast clean-shaven, you can skip watching Rob and I debate the merits of The Hobbit and download it in .mp3 format or listen to the lot of us discussing all sorts of things in the years to come by subscribing to the RSS feed for the new podcast (We’ll also slap a link to it in the sidebar shortly.)

The .mp3 is a little bare-bones at this moment—striking a balance between Hannity and NPR without sounding like the mutant child of Steven A. Smith and Ira Glass is exactly as difficult as it sounds—but I’ll be working on introductions and segues and reminders that unlike its competitors, Lawyers, Guns & Money is a user-supported blog that can’t continue to provide the coverage of whatever it is we cover without the continued support of readers like you. So if you have a used car that’s just sitting in the garage collecting dust, considering donating it to me because mine’s making this cluh-tunk-a-tunk sound every time I accelerate. Where was I?

That’s right: one danger of having the deaf guy in charge of the volume knob is that what sounds right to me might cause you immediate and permanent damage, but I think I’ve got the volume and volume-leveling of the .mp3 within the normal range. If not just drop me a line.

    “This week on This American Life, we’ll be examine the effect of Mike D’Antoni, who should not be allowed into the Staples Center any more, on dying blue-collar communities in Southern California…”

    Meh, needs more Skip Bayless.

  3. Keith:

    Pretty sure the RSS feed in the post is incorrect

  4. SEK:

    It’s fixed now.

    Hitler had a mustache (Stalin’s was bigger and Nietzsche’s was epic) while Jesus, Darwin, Dumbledore & Gandalf are portrayed with massive facial hair. Opposition would include Voldemort, Dawkins, Chomsky and Deepak Chopra. (clearly, these lists are limited)

    Might this topic be considered in a future podcast? I am imagining a Farley & SEK v Lemeiux & Loomis cagematch.

    Compensation is negotiable. Offer terms.

    Lawyers, Guns & Money II: The Reaping.

    I actually watched that whole thing. Which says a lot about how my life is going.

    The part that rose to the level of art for me was that after the discussion of how to end movies (“… but NO he keeps going and then there’s more talking and it’s very predictable talking…”)around 36 mins you KEEP GOING FOR ANOTHER FUCKING 14 MINS. That was genius. The rest was kind of blurry. Or yellow. Or blurry and yellow.

    Maybe you should shoot the next one in 48 fps. Or maybe in Dubly.

  8. Robert Farley:

    +1

  9. Dr.KennethNoisewater:

    When you do “Twilight” do let me know.

    Just kidding. I long for the day I actually have time for podcasts. That being said, I’m kinda psyched you guys are doing this. I’ll fit you in–SOMEHOW, SOME WAY.

  10. Icarus Wright:

    I spent some quality time watching the first version. That said, using whatever tools Zizek provides:

    Dr Farley putting on his hat = a tell.
    Dr SEK’s epic beard = ? shampoo fetish? laziness? asserting control relevant to compensating for deafness?

    But seriously…the only book I’ve read from JKK Tolkien’s oeuvre was ‘Hobbit.’ And I only read it because my mom used to read chapters as a bedtime story.

  11. g-rant:

    I like that Rob sounds more Californian than most Californians*. Oh, the uptalk!

    *More proof that it’s a general West Coast accent. Notice also the vowels. Sooo totally Californian.

  12. SEK:

    I’ve had a beard since I was fourteen. It’s not normally quite this thick, but I figure as long as I’m teaching Fellowship and Game of Thrones, I might as well look the part.

  13. JREinATL:

    Hey, SEK — what was your beef with “Looper”?

  14. Jim48043:

    “…you can skip watching Rob and I…” (sic)

    What is it, again, that SEK teaches at university level?
