Who should I diavlog with?

A Bloggingheads question. Seriously (or not seriously). Who would you like to see me diavlog with? Keep in mind that the other person has to agree to it.

Here are all my old diavlogs, so you can see who I've gone with already.

Me, me, me.

Trooper York said...

Titus.

Al Gore said...

Me, or Andrew Sullivan.

Host with the Most said...

Megan McArdle.

Because you both are so lucid when you begin describing things.


Jesse Jackson.

Seriously.

Bob said...

Sir Archy.

kynefski said...

I don't know what you'd talk about, but I'd recommend David Frum just because the two of you are the masters of the format

Troy said...

Ruth Anne

Jonah Goldberg

Palladian said...

Me, obviously.

PatCA said...

Rush Limbaugh.

J said...

Megan Mcardle
or
John McWhorter
or
repeat performance with Robin Givhan

elk said...

Eric Posner or Rosa Brooks!

Susan said...

Camille Paglia

mutt said...

I'll second Megan McArdle. Or how bout Will Wilkinson, he'll be game.

I like people to have the same letter starting both names...

Trooper York said...

Well since you already did one with Bella, how about doing one with Boris Karloff.

Paddy O. said...

La Shawn Barber

Gives you a chance to play the left side a little bit too.

chickenlittle said...

I'd pay to see you and Sullivan together!

Trooper York said...

Ernie Borgnine.

XWL said...

Seriously?

Dr. Helen (about the intersection of men's issues and feminism).

Christopher Hitchens (about faith and unfaith, and I think you could get him to do it if you just ply him with his favorite scotch)

David Zucker (about parody, humor, and no longer being a 'Hollywood liberal', plus he's got a movie to push, so I'd bet he'd say yes)

Eugene Volokh (about the US Constitution, not ConLaw and how you teach it, but your respective attitudes towards the document itself and its place in world history, and maybe a segment on group-blogging versus solo-blogging)

Unseriously?

Either of the Fug Girls from Go Fug Yourself (I think hilarity would ensue)

Leo Laporte (I think you talking with one of the bigger tech geeks on the internet could actually be interesting, but don't talk about tech, but podcasting/blogging/communication in general)

Also, since a bunch of other's have said it, me, me, me.

(although, I don't know what we'd talk about, but I'd love the traffic bump)

kynefski said...

I'll second Camille Paglia.

Mark said...

Terry Gross or Ira Glass

bearbee said...

Bigfoot
Camille Paglia
Andrew Sullivan

Trooper York said...

John Edward's baby mama.

Jeff with one 'f' said...

Amanda Marcotte!

Ron said...

Madonna? Penelope Cruz? Woody?

Failing these...Dr. Helen? Amba?
Victoria, time to step up!

Far be it from me to promote me...

Ruth Anne Adams said...

Tammy Bruce

Trooper York said...

Michael Savage. Hee hee.

Ruth Anne Adams said...

Victoria [but I don't think she'd shed her anonymity]

The Anchoress [she's already shed her anonymity]

Annie Gottlieb...you could do the Cruel Neutrality diavlog as both of you are mostly undecided on the presidential thing. That would be quite interesting to the two parties

John Burgess said...

Marcotte. Twenty paces. Pistols.

It'll be a short video, but one worth watching again and again.

More seriously, I second McArdle, Paglia, and McWorter. I'd love to see you an Volokh together as well.

Meade said...

Dr. Helen's InstaHusband

jdeeripper said...

Amanda Carpenter, PLEASE.

The problem I have with bloggingheads is that it is mainly just Bob "Testosterone Free" Wright and an endless cast of ugly Jewish guys.

I've seen Amanda on there twice. She's beautiful despite the dracula teeth and she's a crazy, never back down rightwing chick.

Ann Althouse said...

I think bhtv has too often paired women to get them to talk about women's issues. I'm especially interesting in getting away from that for a while. Amanda Marcotte is exactly what I wouldn't want to do. Also, I don't want to diavlog with someone who's repeatedly insulted me in a low, personal way.

Meade said...

Well then Insty would be ideal!

Jeff with one 'f' said...

"I don't want to diavlog with someone who's repeatedly insulted me in a low, personal way."


The fact that Marcotte and her fellow travelers seem so threatened and offended by Ann is why I want the diavlog.

I'm sure it won't happen, though. Ann is open to dialogue while the Pandagon end of the left seem more inclined towards a foul-mouthed echo chamber, with the occasional struggle session for extra political purity.

Shawn Levasseur said...

I'll second the Leo Laporte suggestion, if he'd be willing. With all the podcasts he's doing, he may be too busy.

The contrast with your 'podfading' and his building of the TWiT family of podcasts provides an interesting contrast.

I'd presume he'd live stream the recording, so you could have the opportunity to experience reading commenters live in the chat window at TWiTlive.tv

reader_iam said...

Unfortunately, Bitch PhD is pseudonymous (though her identity is known), but I think that would be an interesting, if unusual, choice.

Please, just no more Bella! Honestly, that diavlog was probably the only Althouse-related audio thing I ever disliked (but not because of Althouse). It was a chore to listen to. Hell, even my son asked me to turn it off, and he's been brainwashed into tolerating my penchant for listening to podcasts and talk. The only other person to whom he has that reaction is Matthew Yglesias, whose voice he actually described as "nails scratching a chalkboard," the first time I ever heard him use that phrase. I have to say I agree with him, although I'd enjoy watching you have Yglesias for lunch.

Hey, yeah, that could be cool.

Ruth Anne Adams said...

You know you want to: Rush Limbaugh.

Ann Althouse said...I think bhtv has too often paired women to get them to talk about women's issues. I'm especially interesting in getting away from that for a while. Amanda Marcotte is exactly what I wouldn't want to do.

Right, forget Marcotte. Amanda CARPENTER!

And you wont have to talk about girly issues with her. It'll be great, do it.

blake said...

Victoria would be an interesting choice. (I didn't know she was anonymous!)

I would like to see you diavlog with someone to your political right.

Stupe said...

I've neve heard the word diavlog.

Is that like a divalog?

Barista? Is that like a coffee server?

All these pretentious new words.

Ruth Anne Adams said...

Here's another positive about Amanda Carpenter: she has a regular gig on the O'Reilly Factor [internet police segment] and she might be able to put in a good word to Papa Bear.

kynefski said...

"I would like to see you diavlog with someone to your political right."

So what about Mickey?

amba said...

I third Camille Paglia.

amba said...

I mean, she's a woman, but that's where the resemblance ends. There's no confining her.

Saint Russell said...

You know, the world is waiting for the Garance-Althouse rematch! But I do think it would be spiffy to see Althouse on the left, with a real right-winger on the right.

recluserecluse said...

Heather Mac Donald of City Journal

or

Eric S. Raymond of Armed and Dangerous
