During the first segment, Eric and RJ discuss the recent round of NFL Playoff games and the immense pressure that coaches and players are under when millions of dollars are on the line for the team and league each week. They also dig into a recent James Pethokoukis post on a new study that severely undercuts the validity of President Obama’s “income inequality” mantra.

To close out this week’s show, RJ welcomes founding member of “The Young Cons“—Joshua Riddle—to the program. Josh is a recent graduate of Dartmouth and currently runs social media for the pop-culture website Acculturated.com. The two discuss what conservatives might do in 2013 to begin making a culturally relevant case for their values, as well as this remarkable story out of Texas regarding the dramatic fiscal gains that state is currently experiencing (and how that contrasts to other states like California and Illinois).
