Episode #12 On NSA, Fla. 13 & Tom Coburn … Plus, The Return Of Neal Conan

This week’s Political Junkie show reviews President Obama’s speech on NSA surveillance with Josh Gerstein of POLITICO, then looks ahead to the president’s State of the Union address, reuniting host Ken Rudin with his old pal, Neal Conan.  (And they have an announcement about a July 11 Political Junkie Road Show!)

Later, in the extended podcast version, Ken visits with University of South Florida professor Susan MacManus about the upcoming special House election to fill the seat of the late Rep. Bill Young (R).  And from there he goes to Oklahoma, talking with Tulsa World reporter Randy Krehbiel about the announcement by GOP Sen. Tom Coburn that he will leave office at the end of the year, two years before his term is up.

Plus:  a new trivia question, and “this day in history” features former Tennessee Sen. and 2008 presidential hopeful Fred Thompson.

    • We were hoping we’d have this available on iTunes and other podcatchers by now … it’s taking longer than we thought. But it’s coming very soon. Promise!


  1. How about having a link that people could just download an MP3 file of the podcast from this web site? People could manually load those onto their MP3 players until iTunes and other podcast sites come online. hh

  2. I just subscribed to an iTunes “power press” Political Junkie podcast which has episode 10. It says “Podcast Test #1”. So exciting!!

  3. On Wednesdays, I would schedule my commute to catch the “Political Junkie” on WHYY and I subscribed to the podcast on my Blackberry. It’s great to hear a 1/2 hour podcast again.
