The HST Legacy in DC

A special treat this episode: joining Danny Dunn and Curtis Robinson is Carl Hulse, New York Times chief Washington correspondent and author of "Confirmation Bias: Inside Washington's War Over the Supreme Court, from Scalia's Death to Justice Kavanaugh" talks about how Hunter S. Thompson's "Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail in '72" set him on a path to journalism. While he didn't actually know the Doctor, he certainly is among those legacy folks who, like Curtis, can credit (or blame) Hunter for heading into newspapers. At great personal risk and expense, we recorded Carl at the famous HST touchstone Hotel Jerome over President's Day weekend in Aspen, Colorado.
