Right Angle

Bill Whittle, Scott Ott and Steve Green bring you three different perspectives on three of the week’s top stories, with penetrating analysis, assorted-grade humor, and just a pinch of artisanally-selected, steel-cut snark; plus, an informal, wide-ranging, hour-long Member’s Only Backstage show: every week, without fail, since 2014.

Latest Right Angle Episodes:

Ephemera

I don’t think a day goes by without me seeing something genuinely wondrous on the internet, and so I finally decided that I would have to share them with as many people as I could. No politics here: just the weird and the wonderful without the slightest order or method. Just sit back and enjoy. 

Latest Ephemera Episodes:

Things To Come

THINGS TO COME will be Bill’s next signature series. In their book, The Fourth Turning, historians William Strauss and Neil Howe provide compelling evidence that historical cycles have repeated themselves throughout history. Bill Whittle uses this theory to try to see an outline of the coming crisis.

Latest Things to Come Episodes:

Things to Come, Part 1: The Theory

The book, The Fourth Turning, describes an eighty-year cycle for historical events. Is this cycle real, and if so, what can we learn from it?

Things to Come, Part 3: The Cities

In this third installment, host Bil Whittle looks at the most obvious of the Three Fronts: America’s decaying cities.

Things to Come, Part 4: The Border

The second of the Three Fronts will be more dispersed than The Cities, but will hold many of the same challenges, namely lawlessness, violence and genuine heartache.

Coming Soon:
Story Mechanics!

From Genesis to the Green Lantern, we humans have learned all of our moral values from the stories we tell to one another. In this brand-new series, host Bill Whittle will be having in-depth discussions with the mechanics that build our stories, as well as discussing the mechanics of how a good story is built. Confirmed so far are Jon Voight, Gary Sinise, Mike Rowe, Tom Dreesen, Adam Baldwin, Burt Rutan, Dick Rutan and Kelly Carlson, with more to follow. While we will release snippets from each episode, in the main this will be Members-Only content for the Citizen Producers here at BillWhittle.com.

Coming Soon:
Major Mace Mattingly!

MAJOR MACE MATTINGLY and the Last Men on the Moon will be Bill’s irreverent look at the politics of today by viewing 2024 America through the eyes of four Steely-Eyed Missile Men who have been on a Top Secret US Military Moonbase since 1966! Rendered in the Unreal 5 game engine, this CGI series will be visual knockout as well as a heck of a lot of fun.

Archives Island

Long, long ago, in the Aforetimes, there was a previous version of this magnificent new website. But the code was old and decaying, and smelt like over-ripe mangos, and so creaky was its cobbled-together frame that you could go get a cup of coffee before a page finished loading. 
 
We did not bring this code with us, for it was mightily diseased; but we did, however, preserve it — and everything in it — and emplaced those ancient posts and episodes on a separate domain, so that those seeking the past could find the old site, but it could not find us.
