Welcome to “Q&A,” a podcast hosted by Jay Nordlinger. Jay will be handling the “Q” part; a variety of guests will be handling the “A” part. On occasion, Jay may be doing some answering himself.
“Q&A” will be weekly, more or less. Some weeks will have more than one episode; some weeks will be without episodes. The show will be fairly regular, regardless.
The guest in this inaugural episode is Garry Kasparov, the great chess champion, Russian democrat, and human-rights defender. (Garry says to Jay, “You mean ‘democrat’ with a small ‘d,’ right?” Right.) The discussion concerns Putin, the Nemtsov murder, Ukraine, and other subjects. Jay asks the old, old question, “Do Russians desire a democracy?” At the end, the conversation turns to Kasparov’s original game, chess.
The music, incidentally, is Russian. The show begins and ends with Glazunov’s Symphony No. 5, last movement.
