This week’s Remnant reunites Jonah with his fellow goatee-sporting journalist Steve Hayes, the editor-in-chief of the Weekly Standard. Jonah tries to keep the chicken wings and cheese curds away from Steve long enough for them to talk about the state of the Republican Party, Charles Krauthammer, and . . . fraternity pledging?
Can the president pardon himself? Are cakes free speech? What is the tonnage clause? Jonah invites Ilya Shapiro, Cato Institute senior fellow in constitutional studies, onto the Remnant to answer these and other legal questions.
Enjoying a brief respite from his book tour, Jonah takes time to memorialize his larger-than-life father-in-law, address critics of Suicide of the West (buy now!), and engage in some rank punditry on Mueller, China, and North Korea.
The second half of Jonah’s conversation with Hoover Institution Fellow and Econtalk podcast host Russ Roberts moves away from the abstract and the philosophical and more into the contemporary and the political. Jonah and Russ also search for something on which they might disagree.
When is a podcast too long? Should we hate pragmatism? Are economists a guild? Jonah invites Russ Roberts, Hoover Institution fellow and host of the Econtalk podcast, to attempt to answer these and other questions, in the first part of their conversation.
Can liberals understand conservatives? Is civil society decaying? Is staging a fake assassination attempt on yourself a good way to win reelection? Washington Examiner commentary editor Tim Carney rejoins the Remnant to answer these and other questions.
With a lot of drama unfolding these days in the Korea peninsula, Jonah invites AEI scholar and North Korea expert Nicholas Eberstadt to help make sense of North Korea, the Kim family, President Trump’s new approach to the problem, and more.
Jonah finds time in the midst of his whirlwind book tour for a special New York episode of the Remnant with National Review senior contributor Michael Brendan Dougherty. They have a wide-ranging discussion on ethnic pride, nationalism and patriotism, Ireland, and more.
In the latest Remnant, Washington Examiner commentary editor Tim Carney joins Jonah to discuss the headlines of the day (the Cohen raid, Syria, the 2018 midterms) and to do a deeper dive on the nature of crony capitalism.
The latest Remnant invites New York Times columnist Ross Douthat, author of the newly-released To Change the Church: Pope Francis and the Future of Catholicism, to discuss Pope Francis and state of the Catholic Church.
Returning from exile, and just back from a trip abroad, Senator Ben Sasse (R-Nebraska) rejoins The Remnant for a wildly discursive episode on cybersecurity, congressional dysfunction, populism, and cryptozoology.
Because the Rothschilds prevented a high-minded podcast with Ross Douthat (rescheduled) Jonah ventures back into rankest of rank punditry with National Review senior political correspondent Jim Geraghty. The tastefully dressed Geraghty helps navigate the tricky terrain of Cambridge Analytica, Stormy Daniels, the 2018 midterms, and more.
Past Remnant guests Charles Murray and Steve Hayward join Jonah for an unprecedented recording of the Remnant with a live studio audience. They discuss their own lives and take questions from an audience of young people seeking direction about their futures.
In another trial run at a special All Rank Punditry edition of the Remnant, Jonah and his Sancho Panza tackle the Windmills in the news this week, from Hillary's gaffe, Tillerson's defenestration and the augurs of PA-18.
