On today’s podcast, why liberals can’t let the Mueller probe go and why Trump fans wrongly think the report is good for him, and why, in spite of everything, we still need a meritocracy. Give a listen.

On today’s podcast, we sift through the Mueller report and find that while it ends the Russia-puppet storyline, it is considerably more problematic for Trump when it comes to obstruction—even though any obstruction would have been without an underlying crime. And we discuss the horrid takes on the burning of Notre Dame. Give a listen.

The issues dominating the week are so far afield from anything that actually affects anyone on a day-to-day basis—relitigating 9/11, for example—that it makes you feel you’re taking crazy pills. Detox from the crazy pills by applying today’s podcast to your ears. Give a listen.

Today’s podcast takes up the arrest of Julian Assange and his strange journey from leftist hero to pariah, as well as the Attorney General’s interest in looking into the way his department might have been looking into the Trump campaign and the outrage that interest has inspired. Give a listen.

Noah Rothman returns to the podcast after vacation to take up the ouster of the Homeland Security secretary in the midst of a crisis at the border that makes the president sound like the boy who cried wolf and makes the Democrats sound like they just want the crisis to continue to score political points for themselves. Give a listen.

More

On a day-early podcast, with Noah Rothman still on vacation, the COMMENTARY Remnant of Abe and Christine and John takes Bernie Sanders very, very seriously. And makes fun of Joe Biden some. And talks about reparations and Israeli taxicabs. Give a listen.

More

Today’s podcast takes up the question of Joe Biden and his hands and his lips and his logorrhea and whether these are disqualifying to his presidential candidacy. Also, how do you pronounce that guy’s name who’s lighting up the Democratic primary pre-season, the guy from Indiana? And…cars. What good are they. Noah’s out but the rest of the gang is here. Give a listen.

John is out for today’s COMMENTARY podcast, but the hosts who remain delve into the baffling saga in Cook County, where Empire actor Jussie Smollett has been the beneficiary of what appears to be a two-tiered system of justice.

More

Today’s sadly Abe-free podcast takes up the question of what the New Zealand massacre might mean for our civilization. How can we live in a world in which mass murderers literally broadcast their killings? And in which senior advisers to the president suggest people read the murderer’s manifesto for the crassest political reasons? We also talk about Beto O’Rourke. Give a listen.

The college admissions scandal that captured the nation’s attention has sharpened the critiques of American institutions dedicated to social mobility. When do they succeed, and how have the failed?

More

Democrats wrestle with themselves over how forcefully to condemn anti-Semitism in their ranks.

The podcast dissects Michael Cohen’s testimony before the House Oversight Committee and sees plenty of silver linings in his scathing indictments of Trump for Republicans.

More
