One of Jay’s favorite guests – and favorite people – is Arthur C. Brooks, of Harvard. For ten years, he was president of the American Enterprise Institute. Today, he is a professor at the Kennedy School of Government and a faculty fellow at the Business School. Brooks was the star of the recent National Prayer Breakfast – or the co-star, with President Trump. He and Jay talk about that, with some wonderment. They also talk about “free-market fundamentalism,” populism, conservatism, Harvard, presidential politics, the question of character, music (Beethoven in particular), and other subjects dear to their hearts. Their conversation and tastes are not for everyone – what is? But many will enjoy tuning in . . .

P.S. The closing music is the Sanctus movement from Beethoven’s Missa solemnis, in a famous recording (1966) conducted by Otto Klemperer.
