The director of social, cultural, and constitutional studies at AEI and National Affairs editor, Yuval Levin, joins the show today to talk about why experts didn’t see last Friday’s jobs numbers coming.

Hunter Biden's legal team not only acknowledges that the "laptop from hell" was Hunter Biden's but is now trying a newly "aggressive" strategy to go after the people who disseminated its contents—without ever stopping to acknowledge the two-plus years of lies about it. We take this up, as well as the assault on Ron DeSantis for his efforts to repai…
 
Tevi Troy joins the podcast today to talk about his article in COMMENTARY, "Ed Koch, Ten Years Gone." And Tevi puts on his health-care hat as a former high-ranking official at the Department of Health and Human Services to help us understand the baffling Biden White House announcement that the COVID emergency will be over...in three months. Give a …
 
The brutal beating death of Tyre Nichols at the hands of Memphis police has reignited the debate around over-policing and race in America. But “reform” doesn’t seem to be the objective critics of police culture and those pushing a racial narrative in this killing want. Also, thoughts on the Palestinian violence against Israeli worshipers and the Is…
 
Frederick Kagan joins the podcast to help us understand the breakthrough in NATO thinking that has led Germany and the United States to commit high-tech tanks to the war in Ukraine, how the war is going, and what America's understanding of the war should be as we approach the end of the first year of fighting. Give a listen.…
 
Today's podcast takes up the successful war by New York leftists against their own Democratic governor, Kathy Hochul, and her choice for chief judge of the state's court of appeals. Why are they attacking her? And why is the left ganging up on a hockey player who didn't want to wear a warmup jacket of their choosing? Give a listen.…
 
Today's podcast takes up Noah Rothman's lead February article, "The Worldwide COVID Revolts," and what it says about the political fallout from the restrictions on human activity over the past three years. And we begin with the pickle the Biden people find themselves in if the special counsel pursues criminal charges against Donald Trump relating t…
 
The allegation that Joe Biden also mishandled classified documents expands to include a second tranche discovered at an undisclosed location, which raises questions about the legal exposure of the president and his team. Or does it? And if it doesn’t, what does that suggest about the Justice Department’s investigation into Trump’s alleged misconduc…
 
Today's podcast takes up the bizarre accusations against the GOP that it is somehow acting in an illegitimate way by fulfilling a campaign promise to stand against the growth in the size and aggressiveness of the IRS. And what's this—Joe Biden took classified documents out of the Obama White House? Give a listen.…
 
Today's podcast looks at the accelerating crisis at the southern border of the United States, and the fact that the Biden administration is putting its head in the sand and trying to ignore it—which other Democratic politicians dealing with the fallout will not allow. And, we wonder, how will the January 6th committee recommendations coming out on …
 
Today's podcast points out that Donald Trump's bizarre announcement that he's selling NFT images of himself was completely overshadowed later in the day by Elon Musk banning some journalists on Twitter. Does this mean Trump is now, literally, yesterday morning's news and will remain so? Give a listen.…
 
With Ron DeSantis pretty firmly taking the lead in 2024 matchups against Donald Trump, there also comes news of DeSantis seeking to convene a grand jury to investigate possible false claims about the efficacy of the COVID vaccines. Is this just pandering to anti-vax lunatics, or is something more interesting going on here? Give a listen.…
 
James B. Meigs joins the podcast today to talk about his January COMMENTARY column, "Twilight of the Tech Gods," and how the collapse of the cryptocurrency exchange FTX represents another example of the way in which the Silicon Valley techno-optimist culture has done injury to capitalism. And how about them Twitter files? Give a listen.…
 
Just when you thought it was safe to stop thinking about politics, Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona shows up and throws a wrench into Joe Biden's Democratic machine by announcing she is becoming an independent. Does it matter? Noah says no. I say it might matter a huge amount. For this debate, and talk about the Twitter transparency project, give a listen…
 
Today we discuss New York City Mayor Eric Adams's decision to seek the involuntary commitment of mentally ill street and subway people. How did we get to this point, and why, and will this help? And is the Senate's vote to enshrine gay marriage into federal law a landmark—and in what way? Give a listen.…
 
Today's podcast takes up the bizarre behavior of Republican election supervisors in a small county in Arizona who do not want to certify their election results—and the fact that if they were to succeed, a House seat would flip to the Democrats. How crazy is that? Not as crazy, perhaps, as the anti-Semitism-enabling behavior of a former president of…
