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.

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.

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.

On this episode of High Noon, Batya Ungar-Sargon and Inez Stepman start out discussing the extent and contours of the antisemitic threat in the USA, and whether it’s something American Jews should worry about, but end up talking about how public opinion is formed, and whether institutions truly shape our ideas.

Madeleine Kearns of National Review is back on High Noon podcast, explaining the chaos surrounding the massive anti-Semitic marches in the UK as well as the politics behind sacking Suella Braverman, and what they both mean for the future of her native isles.

Daily Signal reporter and IWF fellow Mary Margaret Olohan joins High Noon as cohost to discuss how the “mostly peaceful” pro-Hamas protests are getting bolder and taking on new targets, like the same statues defaced during the 2020 riots. The ladies also talk about the ignorance of legacy media when it comes to basic religious knowledge and the long game for a conservative media that is currently ghettoized in a corner of the discourse despite breaking big stories.

Erielle Davidson, attorney and Claremont fellow, joins High Noon podcast as co-host to discuss the war in Gaza, the protests at home and across the West, and the melting of the Charlottesville Robert E. Lee statue. Erielle and Inez talk about the line between a nuanced understanding of history and losing your moral compass.

On this month’s High Noon: After Dark, Emily and Inez discuss the superficial contradictions and the deeper connections between the American college students and recent immigrants marching for Hamas in our cities and the terrorists slaughtering civilians in Israel. They also dig into the boundaries of free speech and the potential end of American hegemony.

In the first episode of Season 2’s new discussion format, co-hosts Inez Stepman and Madeleine Kearns discuss why moral clarity has been so elusive for so many in the West in the wake of the horrific terrorist attack in Israel.

On this episode of High Noon: After Dark, Emily and Inez discuss Russell Brand and how evaluating MeToo accusations has become impossible without participating in a politically charged humiliation ritual. They also chat about the announced Newsom v. DeSantis debate and how it might be more connected to the choices Americans face than our ostensible national politics. Also, Inez rants about WWII historical ignorance in the USA.

James Hasson, an army captain and Afghanistan veteran who participated in independent evacuation efforts in the 2021 withdrawal, and Jerry Dunleavy, an investigative reporter who now continues that job as an investigator for the House Foreign Affairs Committee (although he speaks here in a private capacity), have written a tough but necessary exposé about America’s disastrous withdrawal and evacuation from Kabul, Afghanistan. Hasson and Dunleavy lay out unforgivable mistake after mistake and betrayal after betrayal by the Biden administration and top brass of the military of heroic servicemembers placed in an impossible position by their leaders. Stepman also talks to them about the damage that has been done on the global stage by the failed operation and about the so-far elusive possibility of accountability.

Andrew Hartz is a practicing clinical psychologist and the founder of the Open Therapy Institute. Andrew and Inez discuss how woke ideology is encouraging therapists to violate their professional obligations to patients and making them unable to work with the majority of Americans. Andrew also parries some of Inez’s objections to therapy as a concept, and the two discuss what negative psychological tendencies are encouraged by the culture.
