Listened to 1.05: The Crackpots and These Women (with Eli Attie) by Josh Malina and Hrishi Hirway from The West Wing Weekly
For Big Block of Cheese Day, Josh and Hrishi are joined by Eli Attie, who was Vice President Al Gore's chief speechwriter before leaving politics and joining The West Wing as a writer and producer. Plus, the truth about David Rosen. President Ronald Reagan's Challenger Disaster address...

Elie Attie’s appearance on the show made it infinitely much stronger. There was a nice richness to the additional background he brings here in comparisson to Hill’s recent performance. Notes about Gore using the same campaign idea that appeared behind Bartlett in the episode were great to hear.

I’m trying to catch up on episodes of the podcast to match my recent push at rewatching episodes.
