Remembering WFB

Today on Heading Right Radio, Jim Geraghty and I discussed the passing of William F. Buckley and what he meant to conservatives, the movement and its participants. We both agree that we will not see his like again soon, or perhaps ever — but that the foundation he left us will serve us well in his absence.
I recalled later that I had an opportunity to interview one of Buckley’s biographers, Linda Bridges, who partnered with John R Coyne Jr to author Strictly Right. Back in September, Bridges talked about how Buckley unified conservative factions into a coherent movement. It’s especially appropriate to replay that episode of Heading Right Radio today, and perhaps to revisit Bridge’s book.
Bonus: I have an interview with Tom Coburn in the second half.
