    Until the open borders crowd take VDH up on his suggestion to live among those they advocate for, I don’t want to hear from them. @arahant is correct.

    Until the open boarders crowd…

    Not sure if that’s intentional or a typo, but I think we need to prepare to repel boarders.

    Typo. I’ll fix. Not enough coffee yet to proofread. Thanks! I knew there was a reason I tagged you. ;)

    I liked it: open borders / open boarders. Both work.

    Hey @arahant @latapada @blondie @taras @caroljoy @franco @wolverine and other VDH fans!

    I’m starting a pool and it concerns two of our favorite conservative pundits, Professor Hanson and Jonah Goldberg.

    Jonah’s podcast, The Remnant, features him interacting with other conservative intellectuals in no-holds-barred, open discussions about ideas and issues important to conservatives. He’s up to Number 47 in his series of shows and he’s featured Yuval Levin, Ilya Shapiro, Stephen Hayes, Tim Kearney and even John Podhoretz (of the GLoP and Commentary podcasts), among other notable guests.

    Here’s the contest question for all who want to play:

    At what number Remnant podcast will Jonah host NR colleague Victor Davis Hanson in an extended discussion about the burning and contentious issue of immigration?

    Submit your best guess in numeric form in the comment thread below.

    The prize for best guess will be a session on The Couch.

    (Numbers containing more than seven digits will not be considered for prizes.)

    Good luck, VDH fans!

    @freesmith, that is a good question. Part of me says it will never happen, but I’ll play along and say 74 in honor of my current favorite Hurricanes player. It’s as good a guess as any.

    I know it gets frustrating says this, but “wait ’til next year.”
