Joe Walsh, a former northwest suburban Republican congressman and conservative talk show host, may no longer be on the airwaves, but he still has a lot to say.
Walsh has just launched a twice-weekly podcast, «White Flag with Joe Walsh,» five months after losing his weekday afternoon show on Evanston Broadcasting news/talk WCGO 1590-AM.
It’s described as a series of «passionate dialogues» with well-known people. Walsh explained, «I don’t want to talk to individuals who agree with me.» «I’d like to sit down and have a courteous, constructive discussion with those who disagree with me.»
Andrew Yang, a former Democratic presidential candidate, and D.L. Hughley, an actor, political pundit, radio host, and stand-up comedian, were his first two guests.
«Both of these guys blew me away,» Walsh posted on Facebook. «Andrew and I differ on a lot of things — and believe me, we go into it — but I think we both believe in what America can be.
«I underestimated how much some of what he shared with me about his outlook on race in this country would stick with me long after we spoke,» says D.L. «D.L. is just an absolute pleasure to sit down with, and I underestimated how much some of what he shared with me about his outlook on race in this country would stick with me long after we spoke.»
Walsh worked at Salem Media’s news/talk WIND 560-AM for six years before leaving in 2019 to run for the Republican presidential nomination against Donald Trump.
