In an homage to the star-stuffed 70s disaster movies they both know and love so well, Jonah invites Commentary magazine editor and GLoP Culture co-host John Podhoretz on for a wide-ranging discussion on movies, TV, New York, neoconservatism, and much more. In fitting ’70s disaster movie fashion, a special guest star makes a surprise cameo. When Worlds Collide? More like When Mad, Mad, Mad Worlds Collide!
Bloomberg View columnist Megan McArdle joins Jonah in the latest Remnant to offer a sensible libertarian’s perspective on whether dogs are Marxist, whether drugs should be legalized, whether libertarians should be classified by their preferred subway stop, and whether you should go to that party or not.
In this guest-free free-for-all, Jonah and Co attempt to answer listener questions.
In the latest Remnant, Jonah surveys the public opinion landscape with pollster extraordinaire Kristen Soltis Anderson. They talk fecal craters and 2018 midterms, with a bonus aside about the #MeToo movement. Meanwhile, Jonah may have found his signoff phrase.
Charles Murray comes to the Remnant with the wisdom of a decades-long career and now 75 years of life for a fascinating conversation with Jonah. They cover the bases . . . if your bases are social science, the future of America, and whether there can be such a thing as a “vodka martini.” The Remnant crew also helps Jonah search for a new catchphrase.
Jonah rocks the casbah in the latest Remnant, with Middle East scholar Michael Rubin, who helps him assess the condition of the regimes of Iran and Turkey and the status of the Middle East and Islam generally.
Fox News’ Chris Stirewalt joins Jonah for the latest Remnant to discuss the decrepit state of our media and politics. Also, Jonah and company wrap up the show with a highly self-indulgent year in review.
Jonah climbs high into the (metaphorical) Himalayas in this week’s Remnant, in search of advice from Arthur Brooks, the guru-like president of the American Enterprise Institute. They meditate upon various topics, including but not limited to finding meaning in life, what’s next for American politics, and what’s so special about the French horn. New podcast music is “Game Theme” by Remnant listener Steven M. Alper.
Jonah goes guest-free in this week’s Remnant, allowing him to engage in some rank punditry about Roy Moore’s defeat in Alabama and answer listener questions. The show runs the gamut from veganism, best conservative books, and best Twitter accounts, to trade deficits, Al Gore’s inhuman presence, advice for motivating bright but lazy teenage boys, and more.
In the latest Remnant, Jonah talks with Steve Hayward, currently a visiting professor at University of California, Berkeley — and a conservative. They discuss what conservatives can do to make more inroads into higher education, and why elite schools should welcome the effort.
