Pat Sajak -- Away from the Wheel for a Bit

If you're a person interested in Western culture (including the current culture wars), you'll want to zero in to one of the most unusual spots on the internet. The site is Uncommon Knowledge, a video interview program hosted nowadays by National Review in which Peter Robinson talks to conservative economists, philosophers, academicians, and social activists in a thoughtful conversation that is then sliced into 5 portions and served up to discriminating viewers every weekday.

It's a Charlie Rose format but instead of the pretentious, liberal Charlie Rose, you get an informed and principled interviewer with an intensive background as a speechwriter, researcher, author and, yes, interviewer.

In the conversation this week? Wheel of Fortune host Pat Sajak. Good stuff.
