On this episode of High Noon: After Dark, Emily and Inez discuss the massive impact of the Biden administration’s disastrous Title IX changes, as well as the protests taking over Columbia University. They talk about the line between harassment and free speech, and how to think about antisemitism in the U.S.

John Daniel Davidson, senior editor at The Federalist and author of “Pagan America: The Decline of Christianity and the Dark Age to Come,” joins the High Noon podcast. John and Inez discuss some of the similarities and differences between pre-Christian paganism and what we observe as the last threads of America’s Christian founding start to dissolve. They also talk about the impossibility of maintaining a “neutral” public square with regard to religion, and what life—and the fight—is likely to look like for a dwindling number of religious people.

Helen Roy, host of the podcast Girlboss, Interrupted, joins the High Noon podcast to talk about her recent piece on the relationships between Boomers and their Millennial adult children. Helen and Inez discuss the ’60s as a kind of generational firewall that failed to pass on both tradition and family stability, and how that has affected Millennial failures to hit adulthood milestones. They also talk about how Millennials and Gen Z can go about rebuilding the collapsed “village” around them.

Madeleine Kearns, staff writer at National Review and senior fellow with IWF, comes back on the High Noon pod to discuss the emerging patchwork landscape of laws around gender “transition” in the U.S. and how they compare to the landscape in her native Scotland, which is currently going through a free speech crisis. Maddy and Inez also discuss how these battles are often taking place in a sort of halfway turf—on the fields of politics or The Science—that ignores deeper questions of truth, and how Richard Dawkins’ viral video about cultural Christianity ties into the inadequacies of ’90s liberalism and new atheism.

Emily returns for her monthly High Noon chat, this time about Ronna McDaniel’s quick exit at NBC and the media’s unshakable ability to only allow conservative voices into the discussion if they’ve already acquiesced to the Left on all meaningful priors. The ladies also talk about Christine Blasey-Ford’s return, due process, and a new kind of quiet resurgence of #MeToo accusations that have been avoiding backlash.

Alienated America author Timothy Carney returns to the High Noon podcast to discuss his new book, Family Unfriendly: How Our Culture Made Raising Kids Much Harder Than it Needs to Be. Tim lays out how our modern baby bust is more than economic, and instead is propped up by a series of cultural and policy defaults that make life for families much harder and more isolating. Tim and Inez discuss over-scheduled sports, helicopter parenting, and the total collapse of the village it takes to raise a happy and healthy next generation, as well as pragmatic tips and policy changes that would make it easier for moms and dads who feel like they’re on a social ice floe.

Rachel Bovard of Conservative Partnership Institute is back from a stint as Executive Director of the powerful Republic Steering Committee in the Senate. She explains why the Senate—and the legislative branch more generally—seems to function only as a clearing house to confirm and fund the activities of the other two branches, and how it can take back some of its power. Also, Rachel and Inez discuss the public-private nature of corporate power, and how cultural collusion and market share interact to become a new kind of threat to traditional American freedom.

Kira Davis, host of the podcast Just Listen to Yourself, joins this week to discuss the future of the Republican Party, why the DC Borg always assimilates newcomers, and how to have hard discussions about family formation and marriage.

Emily Jashinsky is back to discuss the Maury-esque details of the Fani Willis trial, the bioethics of IVF, and the Netchoice big tech cases before the Supreme Court that may start building a legal structure to address what censorship looks like in the 21st century.

Tom Rogan, national security expert at the Washington Examiner, breaks down each part of Tucker Carlson’s two-hour-plus interview with Russian head of state Vladimir Putin. Tom and Inez discuss criticisms of Tucker’s journalistic endeavor, and then move to the substance of the interview, including Putin’s view of history, the motivations behind his geopolitical aggression, NATO expansion, China, American decline, and more.

Jeremy Carl of the Claremont Institute joins High Noon podcast to discuss everything about our current border crisis, including what’s in the Senate “border security” bill, the standoff in Texas, and how the politics of immigration are likely to play out going forward.

Emily Jashinsky joins High Noon podcast the last Wednesday of every month. This month, the ladies talk about Bryan Johnson’s Year Zero remarks, and whether the speed and specifics of technological change really have the potential to rearrange not just human affairs but human nature. They also talk about why Ron DeSantis failed to persuade Republican voters, and whether there’s hope for reforming the system or whether our institutions are a lost cause.

Peachy Keenan, author of “Domestic Extremist: A Practical Guide to Winning the Culture War,” joins the podcast to go through all the airline “incidents” lately. Peachy and Inez discuss the coming competency collapse when the last of the Boomers retire, and whether advancing AI can really make up for a population of illiterates. They also talk about the tradwife trend and its positives and negatives.

Libby Emmons, editor-in-chief of The Post Millennial, joins High Noon podcast to talk about Trump’s resounding victory in Iowa and what we can expect from one of the least “normal” elections in U.S. history. Libby and Inez also discuss how the Right should think about Martin Luther King, Jr., and the broader legacy of the 1960s.

Madeleine Kearns of National Review joins the first episode of the year to talk about the migrant crisis expanding in U.S. cities by the hour and how American families are finding themselves holding the short end of the stick. Inez and Madeleine then discuss the chaos caused by illegal protests and what they think of the Chris Rufo strategy.

Emily and Inez finish out the year by talking about the Trump indictments and our busy, busy Rubicon. They try to lighten it up afterward by doing a this-or-that for Christmas traditions and talking about and defending the much-maligned New Year holiday.

Faith Moore joins the High Noon pod to talk about her new novel, “A Christmas Karol,” which retells Dickens’ classic as a story about an overworked mom too busy for her family. Faith and Inez also discuss the pandemic as a clarifying moment, women’s unique role as the keeper of family traditions, and chat about their own Christmases.

Spencer Klavan, host of Young Heretics and author of the book How to Save the West: Ancient Wisdom for Five Modern Crises, rejoins the podcast to talk about the tricky relationship between art and morality. Spencer and Inez share a wide-ranging discussion about whether there’s actually an identity between truth and beauty (with all due respect to Keats), what aesthetics reveal about “inner beauty,” whether portraying the seductiveness of evil holds dangers for the viewer’s heart, and the relationship between art and artist. They also dive into the thorny question of boundaries around art and what, if any, restrictions society ought to place on artistic expression.

Will Chamberlain joins the High Noon podcast to discuss the future of the relationship between big business and the Republican Party, and whether the hopeful signs of corporate cold feet on wokeness are likely to continue. Will and Inez also talk about how to seriously reform the higher ed sector and what would really be necessary to form a conservative counter-elite. They wrap up with a nod to the passing and legacy of Henry Kissinger, and wonder where a balance between moralism and pragmatism in foreign policy would leave us today.

Emily Jashinsky rejoins the High Noon pod to discuss the way “mostly peaceful” protestors can now be deployed for any hashtag cause de jour. This leads the ladies to a discussion of the downsides of low institutional trust and the rise of the autodidact. They also discuss a new survey that shows a complete collapse in time spent with friends IRL, and close with an assessment (if not quite an autopsy) of nearly a decade of populist backlash.
