Will Brexit actually happen? Do young Brits want it to? William F. Buckley Fellow (and Scotland native) Madeleine Kearns rejoins the Young Americans to answer these questions (after a fascinating digression about her experience with study drugs). Also, stay tuned to the very end to experience several firsts for this podcast.
Madeleine Kearns is a young journalist from Scotland. She works at National Review. She has recently been on an unusual beat: transgenderism as it relates to children. She has written, “… some American children are on irreversible cross-sex hormones as young as 12 and have double mastectomies as young as 13.” When you hear about these cases, she says, you want to ask, “Is this really happening?” It is. Jay Nordlinger talks with her about it: a fascinating, appalling subject. Maddy Kearns would rather not be covering it. But someone has to do it, she says, and what happened is this: “I learned too much to be able to walk away in good conscience.”
