Jay talks words, concepts, and the world – including Syria, Russia, Burma, and Taiwan. He also does a little sports (Tiger Woods). And music. Leo Ornstein lived to 106, in three different centuries. Did he compose in all three of them? Possibly…

Do you have your piece of the pie? Is an economy, or a society, a pie, leaving us all fighting for crumbs? Jay talks about this, as well as disinvitation, the anonymous op-ed piece, Europe’s politics, the power of talk, and the power of music.

Jay talks about Bill Clinton, Louis Farrakhan, Nancy Pelosi, George W. Bush, Theresa May, Howard Cosell, Neil Simon, and more. He ends with Don Cherry, the late singer and golfer — what a combo, what a life.

The scheduled Maria for a West Side Story had to withdraw — because she was not Latin American. Well, nuts to that, Jay says, as did Leonard Bernstein – “who wrote the frickin’ thing” (as Jay also says). Jay begins this episode with West Side Story, then moves to Austria, the Czech Republic, Russia, and beyond. An episode full of culture and politics, with an occasional dyspeptic tone.

Jay talks about issues timely and timeless, grave and light. He has help from Verdi and three other composers — including Burt Bacharach (along with his lyric-writing partner, Hal David).

Jay speaks of Kim Kardashian — and of Kim Kashkashian, a distinguished violist. Important to tell them apart. He also speaks of Reagan, Trump, Ed Schultz, Serena Williams, and others — including the Gabor sisters. In a way, they were Kardashian before it was cool.

Jay starts with a phrase from long ago — “a thousand points of light” — and ends with some music, heard in the darkness of Iraq under ISIS. The music in this episode is eclectic: a couple of pop songs from the late 1980s; a national anthem (the best one?); and, finally, that music heard in Iraq, from the soundtrack of a Holocaust movie.

Jay has a few subjects historical: Neville Chamberlain, Nazi Germany, Imperial Japan. He has a few subjects current, too: Trump, Putin, Kim (the latest one). His musical assists come from Takemitsu, the Japanese composer; Handel, the German composer who was an honorary Englishman; and Drigo, Riccardo Drigo, a long-forgotten Italian who worked in Russia. Jay is bringing him back, with the help of one of the greatest tenors in history.

Jay Nordlinger “jaywalks” from subject to subject and place to place: social conservatism, in Nevada and elsewhere; freedom of the press, in France and elsewhere; a Dutchy town in Michigan; and a noble tragedy in South Dakota. There is some dance music, for no extra charge (clogs required).

Jay talks California, conservatism, personal responsibility, and trade — with some help from three singers: Al Jolson, Ella Fitzgerald, and Bryn Terfel. “Don’t be late.”

At the beginning, Jay says, “Got a slew of issues for you, and some music to go with.” This proves to be true. He talks about the opioid crisis, Seattle, the flag, the Gap, and more. And he does it with a little help from his friends — among them Elton John and Kander & Ebb. A track or four of music helps the medicine go down.

Jay does a kind of tour, touching on some burning issues and some less burning ones. He talks about the Nobel Peace Prize, a movie about Stalin, and “realism.” Personalities include Marco Rubio, Bill Cosby, and J. D. McClatchy. The podcast is not without music — from Lynyrd Skynyrd, Shostakovich, and Beethoven. Come take the tour.

In this episode, Jay talks music, and plays some recordings – starting with a couple of fantasies. So, trip the light fantastic, with some arias and other things thrown in too.

Something Mitt Romney said reminded Jay of what Hillary Clinton once said — to him (Jay). H. R. McMaster delivered an important message. Eliot A. Cohen unearthed an extraordinary (early) American. A man learned a painful lesson in Alaska.

Jay talks about all this and more, including sports and a deodorant commercial (yes). The podcast ends with his dad singing a fight song. A brief podcast positively bursting with eclecticism.

Jay talks Gershwin (two of them). Michel Legrand plays a prelude. Zell Miller speaks (“Spitballs?”). Jay remarks on baseball — and Louisiana speech. Finally, a bride sings a song, “Seduced.” A buffet for the ears.

Jay plays some Louis Armstrong, some rap (yes), and some Rosemary Clooney. He talks politics, persecution, Russia, Harvard, and more. Actually, Russia and Harvard intersect at some point. A varied, offbeat, and provocative podcast.

The appointment of John Bolton as national security adviser puts Jay in mind of mustaches — and he plays a little Stephen Foster. He also has coined a term that he hopes will catch on. Whether it does or not, he likes it. He talks about language, political and non-, and he tells a couple of stories — presidential ones. He ends with material related to Saint Patrick’s Day, late or not. “Danny Boy” is for every day, right?

Jay begins and ends with Rossini. He also throws in a little Cole Porter and a little Ben Stein (“Anyone? Anyone?”) as he discusses Russia, China, France, baseball, and other pressing matters. Jaywalk along.

Jaywalking around, Jay talks about a newly named regiment in Russia. And about Erdogan’s latest maneuvers. And about Trump’s different sorts of maneuvers. Later on, Jay indulges in the delights of language and in a song — a kind of hymn — written by a composer most famous as a teacher of other composers. (A great many people partook of that Boulangerie.)
