The Casey Lartigue Show

Guests scheduled for May NOTE: Check here for updates on Memorandum 46! Future Shows Thomas Sowell of the Hoover Institution This is my first attempt at putting together my own promo , it was rejected because of the sound quality May 19 edition of the Casey Lartigue Show We had a great show yesterday, probably the best so far. The topic: Malcolm X. The occasion? Anniversary of his 82nd birthday. Eliot Morgan and I had a great time talking with the callers. Deneen Borelli called in on our special guest line. You can download the file here. We posed the question: What did Malcolm X do? We contrasted the viewpoint and legacies of Malcolm X and Thurgood Marshall. The one mistake I made was not to focus on the question that Marshall asked: What was the one concrete thing that Malcolm X did. In segment 3, callers begin to get personal with us.

2016-11-03 Who is Andrei Lankov?

Disclaimer: NK experts, please don't read this, there will be no rabbits pulled out of a hat. * * * Every couple of months, I meet up with Andrei Lankov to discuss various things. I first met him back in 2011, shortly before he spoke at an event I organized with the Center for Free Enterprise. I have read his articles for years, he has spoken at about four TNKR events over the years. When it comes to analyzing NK, he is one of the leading experts in the field. Last March, I was one of the organizers of the first (and perhaps last) International Volunteers Workshop, we had 227 RSVP in advance. I asked them all as part of the RSVP: "The keynote speaker will be Andrei Lankov. Had you heard of him before hearing about this event?" No: 133 Yes: 94 Even within those 94 "Yes" responses, I am sure there were various levels of awareness--such as some may have seen his name, others may have read some articles, and a few experts may have the Andrei La

2015-01-30 Speech, more TNKR volunteers

  After speaking at an international school twice this week, today I played the role of connector and moderator. It was a great event, two of our "Teach North Korean Refugee" Ambassador speakers gave very nice speeches this morning to an overflow crowd of students. The hosts were probably a bit surprised by the turnout of our team: * TNKR co-directors Lee Eunkoo and Casey Lartigue * TNKR Special Assistant Suzanne Atwill Stewart * FF Assistant Cherie Yang * Three TNKR coaches of our speakers * Three NK refugees, including two speakers It was like our speakers had their own cheering section! The teachers strongly praised me for my speeches on Tuesday and Wednesday, it turned out that they used a lot of what I presented in learning exercises for the students, and several told me that they felt inspired by the things I had said. Another speaker at the event in the first session was Joseph Park, someone who I am sure people have said that I should meet, but this was the first time
