Megan and Dan Do ‘TV’
Dan Drezner and Megan McArdle appear on BloggingHeadsTV discussing why Megan gets such strong reactions in the blogosphere, fashion trends in academe, the netroots vs. Foreign Policy Establishment debate, Rudy Giuliani’s foreign policy, and some other topics. The pairing is somewhat against type, in that both are libertarian centrists rather than one lefty and one righty.
It’s an interesting discussion and both do well enough on camera so as not to distract from their dialog. An hour of talking heads is just about more than I can sit through these days, having grown so accustomed to being able to skim text for the bits and pieces that interest me.
Despite my skepticism of the format, I’ve agreed to participate in one of these next months with Ezra Klein. More details as they’re finalized.
