Contributor Post Created with Sketch. The Classicist Podcast, with Victor Davis Hanson: “9/11: Then and Now”


On a special installment of The Classicist podcast from the Hoover Institution, I lead VDH in a reflection on 9/11 and the 14 years that have passed in the interim. Why did America get blindsided in 2001? How have we managed to remain relatively safe over a decade-and-a-half where we’ve had two presidents with dramatically different approaches to foreign affairs? Is the threat from radical Islam more or less acute than it was in the aftermath of the attacks? All that and more below or when you subscribe to The Classicist via iTunes.

    I read this as “The Classiest Podcast.” Donald Trump is ruining my life.

    Outstanding. VDH is as good at getting his mind around impossibly complex matters as anyone out there.

    I love these podcasts – and especially the way they invariably end:

    TS: What do you foresee?

    VDH: Misery as far as the eye can see

    TS: OK, that’s all we have time for today. Join us next week for the next edition.
