Jon and Stephen share their lessons learned from the Kavanaugh mess and tell Democrats why they lost — and why their party is in such a shambles. They also discuss a series of hoax “grievance studies” articles that wound up getting published in leading academic journals.

The intro/outro song is “The Light” by Virgin Tongues. Jon’s song of the week is “Leave Him Now” by Cloud Nothings. Stephen’s song of the week is “Six Feet Underground” by Virgin Tongues. To listen to all the music featured on The Conservatarians, subscribe to our Spotify playlist!

    Another great episode & worth the wait. I wanted to especially thank Stephen for recommending The Virgin Tongues. Now listening to 5 song EP. My word this is amazing music! Perhaps best of the year?

    The Virgin Tongues reminds me very much of early Gun Club, especially “Satellite”.

    I’m annoyed that Stephen discovered them instead of me!

    That’s OK! You’ve done much to broaden my musical interests in the last year. Didn’t know Shoegaze was a thing until the Conservatarians. Now I got songs in my Apple music playlist from Chapterhouse, Ride, The Darkside, This Mortal Coil, Swervedriver, Pale Saints, The House of Love, The Besnard Lakes, and the list goes on.
