We know you like it when the hosts get into it and we know you like it when one of them gets triggered by a certain Chief Executive. So -no spoilers!- we think you'll enjoy the opening segment of today's Big Show. But stick around, because we want to introduce you to two members of the media we think you ought to be aware of. First up: Alex Berenson, once a card carrying member of the elite media (the New York Times) and now a novelist who does some independent journalism on the side. His work on COVID over the past six months (available on Twitter and on his website is not to be missed. Then, meet Andrew Beaton, who covers sports for the Wall Street Journal. His no nonsense reporting on COVID and sports and the impact of the social justice movement is not to be missed. But that's not all: we've got a new Lileks Post of The Week, courtesy of @DoctorRobert (it's about oboes). Finally, we lost a great one this week. Well, those of us who were aware of him did. Guess which one of our podcasters is not really aware of the contributions to the culture Edward Van Halen left us?

Music from this week's show: Dance The Night Away by Van Halen
