George Conway, Beto O’Rourke, Devin Nunes and a Cow, and Wit with the author of WIT’S END, WHAT WIT IS, HOW IT WORKS, AND WHY WE NEED IT, James Geary and we’re just beginning. Welcome to The Halli Casser-Jayne Show and our weekly political review with Halli and veteran White House correspondent Matthew Cooper, March 20, 2019 the podcast posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com and on all your favorite apps.
As always, Halli and Matt slice and dice the week’s political news. There’s a lot of news and a lot of questions needing answers. Beto, Bernie, Harris, Warren can any of the announced Democratic Party candidates for POTUS beat the man waiting in the wings, Joe Biden? What are we to make of Kellyanne Conway’s husband George Conway’s battle royale with Donald Trump? Why is Devin Nunes having a cow? We love palace intrigue on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show.
In our second half-hour because we all need a laugh, from New York Times best-selling author James Geary comes WIT’S END: WHAT WIT IS, HOW IT WORKS, AND WHY WE NEED IT, a whimsical book that explores every facet of wittiness—from its role in innovation, to why puns demonstrate the essence of creativity. According to Geary, wit is much more than just having a knack for snappy comebacks. It is the quick, instinctive intelligence that allows us to think, say, or do the right thing at the right time in the right place. Whether we’re talking verbal repartee, jokes, jive, through neuroscience, psychology, folk tales, spirituality, visual art, and literary history, Geary demonstrates that wit and wisdom are really the same thing.
