It sounds like a PR firm or a face cream, but it’s our two guests this week. Bloomberg’s Eli Lake sits in for Jay as co-host, and Eliana Johnson of Politico offers her insights on staff shake-ups at the White House. Eli and Mona then talk Russia, N. Korea, and climate. We got out to some music in honor of The Weekly Standard:


The Conservatarians (aka, Ricochet Editor-in-Chief Jon Gabriel and Heatstreet’s Stephen Miller) talk with Eliana Johnson, Washington Editor for National Review, about her scoops on Lois Lerner and Ted Cruz, not to mention Hillary Clinton’s email scandal. The boys also chat about rocket fuel cold brew, Saddam’s silver lining, and a new scandal at Fox News.

Intro and outro music is “Lazy Eye” by Silversun Pickups. Jon’s music pick this week is “Anxiety” by Preoccupations. Stephen’s music pick is “Fantasy Boys” by BRONCHO. To listen to all the music featured on The Conservatarians, subscribe to our Spotify playlist!
