The Remnant

Politics >

In The Remnant with Jonah Goldberg, the National Review senior editor and AEI Fellow enlists a Cannonball Run style cast of stars, has-beens and never-weres to address the most pressing issues of the day and of all-time. Is Western Civilization doomed? Is nationalism the wave of the future? Is the Pope Catholic? Will they ever find a new place to put cheese on a pizza? Is Die Hard a Christmas movie? Who is hotter: Ginger or Mary-Ann? Was Plato really endorsing the Republic as the ideal state? Mixing history, pop culture, rank-punditry, political philosophy, and, at times, shameless book-plugging, Goldberg and guests will have the kinds of conversations we wish they had on cable-TV shout shows. And the nudity will (almost) always be tasteful. N.B. The most recent ten episodes of this podcast are available on this feed. Full archives are available at NationalReview.com.
