“If you prefer facts over feelings, aren’t offended by the brutal truth and you can still laugh at the insanity filling our national news cycle, well tune in to the Ben Shapiro Show. We’ll get a whole lot of that and much more. See you there.”
That is Ben Shapiro’s teaser for The Ben Shapiro Show.
If I had to choose one podcast over any other to listen to, this is my number one podcast pick. Ben Shapiro is one impressive dude. He is one of the founders of “The Daily Wire” where he serves as editor-in-chief. Ben hosts “The Ben Shapiro Show” which is a daily political podcast and live radio show which he touts as “the largest, fastest growing conservative podcast and radio show in the nation”.
Ben’s accomplishments include, but are not limited to, becoming the youngest nationally syndicated columnist in the United States at 17 years of age, was editor-at-large of Breitbart News between 2012 and 2016, is an accomplished violinist and author of eleven books, the latest being “How to Destroy America in Three Easy Steps”. All of this and so much more at his current age of 36. He is an Orthodox Jew, is “married to a doctor” as he frequently states and has three children.
Ben really tells it like it is in his fast paced, fast talking style. He pulls no punches, calls out Trump, or anyone else, when necessary for saying or doing things that he deems not correct, and gives out praise when appropriate. Of course, this is my opinion and I do agree with much of what Ben says.
Ben’s podcast and radio show is broadcast daily and he also does a weekly interview every Sunday on The Ben Shapiro Sunday Special.
The Daily Wire was founded by Ben and his friend and business partner, Jeremy Boreing in 2015 and is a politically conservative news and opinion website. The Daily Wire features daily podcasts by Michael Knowles, Matt Walsh and Andrew Klavan, all of which I listen to frequently.
They all offer their own style of political and cultural views on the top current news stories. Michael Knowles also hosts “Verdict with Ted Cruz”, a podcast that was launched during the impeachment of President Trump earlier this year.
I highly enjoy the Ben Shapiro Show Sunday Special interviews with so many diverse guests that have included people such as Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Dan Bongino, Tucker Carlson, Charlie Kirk and Dave Rubin on the right, Franklin Graham, Ravi Zacharias, Jordan Peterson and John MacArthur in the religious realm to Joe Rogan, Matthew Yglesias and Ezra Klein on the left and many others that include actors, authors, doctors and more.
What I absolutely love about the interviews that Ben does is that, no matter how much he agrees or disagrees with his guest, Ben ALWAYS lets his guest answer the questions that he poses to them without giving commentary on the answers. In my mind, this is a rarity in todays’ highly polarized society.
One of the most recent Sunday Special Shows was an interview with Jeremy Boreing. I found that to be fascinating as it went into the beginnings of how the Daily Wire was founded and gave some insights into where the company is headed and the prospects for this conservative site should be very exciting to those of us that are on the conservative right.
The Daily Wire was located in Los Angeles County in California until very recently when the announcement was made that they were moving their whole operation to Nashville, Tennessee. I, for one, had been wondering for quite a while why, when Ben so clearly detested the governance of the state of California and often called it a “garbage state”, he didn’t move to a more conservatively run state. I received my answer on September 16th when he made the announcement of the move. About 75 percent of the employees decided to make the move with the company, according to Ben.
There is SO MUCH content at the Daily Wire. Much of it is free, but there is much more behind the pay wall” I recently decided that I would become an All Access member.
There are several levels of membership that include:
- A Readers Pass for just $4 a month, billed annually, which allows access to the member-only mobile app, read DailyWire.com without ads and enjoy member-exclusive op-eds, an Insiders Pass to receive everything in the Readers Pass plus access AppleTV and Roku apps.
- Watch all shows plus 3 hours of The Ben Shapiro Show plus hear answers to bonus questions on the Sunday Show Special and receive the Leftist Tears tumbler for $12 a month.
- The All Access pass for $20 a month to include everything in the Insiders Pass plus ability to join discussions with writers and special guests, participate in All Access Live and hang out with the hosts and get a second Leftist Tears tumbler.
If you haven’t had the chance to listen to Ben Shapiro’s radio show or podcast, I highly recommend that you give it a listen. You will not be disappointed….he is also funny many times and does great voice impressions too!
