In the course of any totally regular man’s life, he accumulates hundreds of enemies and thousands of individual resentments. I won’t go over all the people who have ever wronged me, but trust me, there are a lot of them.
All those who have committed malicious acts against me shared one common trait: they lacked respect for me. And you know what? I can’t blame them.
Most pundits my age, with my track record, with my analysis, they have stuff to show for it. They have TV or radio shows. Charismatic icons such as Michael “The Smirk” Smerconish regularly delight listeners’ ears and eyes, yet The Dig is relegated to text.
The Digcast is everything you have come to love from me. It’s news, politics, fatherhood, and media, all with a dash of snark.
Every week, my Millennial assistant Virgil and I will delve into the Beltway with political insiders, media figures, and even people who have wronged me horribly in what is essentially a master class of political science for your iPhone, Zune, or Sandisk player.
Unlike other podcasts — such as Slate’s Political Gabfest or FiveThirtyEight’s Incorrect Predictions/Involuntary Celibacy Hour — the Digcast isn’t afraid to “go there.”
This week, Alex Pareene stops by to talk about Gawker’s impending doom. If that doesn’t wet your whistle, you should see who else Dig Daddy has in store. Subscribe to the Digcast and rate us on iTunes now so you won’t miss out.
Close your eyes, open your ears, and lick your lips, Digheads! This summer, Carl is going in your ear!
