Incendiary Subjects Incendiary Subjects 328 Wed, 20 Jan 2021 14:00:10 +0000 A sportscast with Jay's favorite gurus: Sally Jenkins, Vivek Dave, and David French. Bill Belichick and the Pats. The coach's turning down of the Presidential Medal of Freedom. The miraculous career of Tom Brady. Too "miraculous"? Anything illicit going on? Urban Meyer, the Washington Football Team, James Harden as Brooklyn Net, and more. Very lively, very informed--very entertaining.

327. Pathologist with a Pen: Kevin D. Williamson on America Pathologist with a Pen: Kevin D. Williamson on America 327 Sun, 17 Jan 2021 03:49:46 +0000 Jay talks once more with one of his favorite writers and people -- Kevin D. Williamson, whose new book is "Big White Ghetto: Dead Broke, Stone-Cold Stupid, and High on Rage in the Dank Woolly Wilds of the 'Real America.'" Among the topics: poverty, drugs, gambling, porn, and despair. But don't worry: The conversation is much more pleasurable than it sounds.

326. A Filmmaker and the Khashoggi Murder A Filmmaker and the Khashoggi Murder 326 Thu, 07 Jan 2021 23:11:57 +0000 In 2017, Bryan Fogel made "Icarus," a film about Russia, sports, and doping. It was a highly consequential film. It won the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature. Now Fogel has made "The Dissident," about Jamal Khashoggi and his murder by the Saudi government. Jay talks with Fogel about his life and his work. An interesting, admirable fellow, Fogel.

325. On Liberty, with Richard Brookhiser On Liberty, with Richard Brookhiser 325 Mon, 21 Dec 2020 20:15:04 +0000 The latest of Richard Brookhiser's many excellent and useful books is "Give Me Liberty: A History of America's Exceptional Idea." What can Americans rally around, diverse as we are? Liberty. What is the wellspring of these United States? Liberty. In this "Q&A," Brookhiser touches on the Founding, Gettysburg, Seneca Falls, and more. Rick Brookhiser has the gift of understanding, and the gift of communicating it to others - in writing and, as you'll hear, by the spoken word.

324. After the Election, America at a Boil After the Election, America at a Boil 324 Fri, 18 Dec 2020 15:00:29 +0000 Once more, Tim Alberta, the ace reporter from Politico, is Jay's guest. He has done some of the best writing in the post-election (as in the pre-election). Try this, for instance, and this. He and Jay talk about their home state, Michigan: dramatic hearings; dramatic other things, including a plot to kidnap the governor. They go beyond Michigan, too, to talk about the state of the union, which is far from good. Americans are at one another's throats. Tim Alberta has done some serious reporting and thinking about it.

Walsh has reported from many spots, most of them troubled - very. He has recently been Cairo bureau chief for the New York Times. Now he is in Africa for that paper. He has just written a book about Pakistan (a country from which he was expelled). Jay tours the world with Declan Walsh - or a bit of it - starting with the reporter's growing up in Ireland.

322. Manliness, Machiavelli, and More, with Harvey Mansfield Manliness, Machiavelli, and More, with Harvey Mansfield 322 Sat, 21 Nov 2020 01:32:35 +0000 Harvey Mansfield, the professor of government and political philosopher at Harvard, is one of the great teachers in America. He does some splendid teaching in this hour with Jay. He talks about manliness - what it is and what it isn't. (Mansfield published a book on the subject in 2006.) He talks about "conservative" and "liberal" - what do those things mean? He addresses the question, posed long ago, of whether we can keep our republic. In all, a rich and enriching hour, requiring not a cent in tuition.

They do indeed talk it over: R's, D's, media, inaugurations, and more. Costa is a man who knows - because he finds out.

An NBA season. A Major League Baseball season. College football, sort of. A Masters tournament in November. Should there be a college sports major? And more.

318. Lincoln, Mookie, and the Piggly Wiggly: A Conversation with George F. Will Lincoln, Mookie, and the Piggly Wiggly: A Conversation with George F. Will 318 Sun, 25 Oct 2020 18:32:04 +0000 In the middle of the World Series, you want to talk baseball with George F. Will. You want to talk baseball with him anytime, actually, and a number of other subjects, too. In this "Q&A," Will speaks of the "angelic, superb Mookie Betts," of the Los Angeles Dodgers. He also talks about the presidential campaign, the Supreme Court, and the Republican Party. There's Big Tech, too. Is it to be feared? Well, one behemoth replaces another. A&P had thousands of stores in the middle of town; then Piggly Wiggly set up stores on the outskirts of town, which was bad news for the other guys. Jay asks Will some personal questions: about David Brinkley and Sam Donaldson, for example. He also asks him about Lincoln (whom Will values highly, as does Jay): What might Lincoln have to say to us today? A well-rounded, invigorating conversation.

Stephens is a columnist for the New York Times himself. The 1619 Project places slavery at the center of the American founding (and thus of America). With Jay, Stephens talks about this, and much else: the presidential campaign, the Middle East, New York City, and more. Bret Stephens won the Pulitzer Prize in 2013. Jay often says that he wishes he could give Stephens a second one.

This Northern Irishman is a "child of the peace," as he says. He went to Magdalen College, Oxford. He has a great love for the United States, and a great knowledge about it (and other things). Jay asks him about Northern Ireland, America, democracy, and a lot more. You can learn a lot from this young man, and he is a delight to listen to. You may even want to hear the podcast twice.

Begging. Stealing. Trying to stay alive. With incredible good fortune - and his own bravery - he managed to escape and get to the United States. He wrote a book called "Under the Same Sky: From Starvation in North Korea to Salvation in America." He is now with the Human Freedom Initiative at the George W. Bush Institute. Amazing fellow.

The One and Only Sharansky The One and Only Sharansky 301 Tue, 08 Sep 2020 18:31:06 +0000 There is almost no one Jay would rather talk with than Natan Sharansky: one of the great heroes of the 20th century (much as he may demur to this) and a force in the 21st. With Gil Troy, Sharansky has written a book called "Never Alone." It is a memoir of his years in the Gulag; his years in Israeli politics; and his years at the helm of the Jewish Agency. With Jay, Sharansky discusses the past, the present, and the future - in Israel, America, and all over. A most stimulating conversation. Jay says that it is moving to talk with Sharansky, and you may find it moving to hear him.

Kolar has required police protection, after angering the Kremlin and its supporters in his own country. This "Q&A" is with the overall mayor -- or the lord mayor -- of Prague: Zdenek Hrib. He, too, has angered the Kremlin, requiring police protection. He has angered the Chinese government, too. Hrib is a man who cares about human rights and general liberal-democratic values. Get to know him a little.

298. A Canny Kid from New Orleans A Canny Kid from New Orleans 298 Sat, 22 Aug 2020 13:00:17 +0000 Quin Hillyer is a veteran political writer who has stuck several toes in politics himself. He was a page at the 1980 Republican National Convention. He was around for a very big scoop. He later worked for Louisiana congressman Bob Livingston. He was part of the effort to block the ascension of David Duke. He went to Georgetown University, where one of his teachers was Jeane Kirkpatrick.

Quin and Jay talk of many things - starting with New Orleans, where Quin grew up (and which Jay loves, and knows a little). They talk about political ideas. They talk about Confederate monuments, a sore, delicate, and important subject. Finally, they talk about one of their favorite people in sports, and one of their favorite people on earth: Jack Nicklaus.

296. A Brave Mayor in Prague A Brave Mayor in Prague 296 Tue, 11 Aug 2020 13:00:20 +0000 Ondrej Kolar is a district mayor in Prague - the mayor of Prague 6. His father, Petr, was a dissident in Communist times; Petr was later a diplomat, serving as ambassador to the United States, for example. As district mayor, Ondrej presided over the removal of a monument to Marshal Ivan Konev, a hero of the Red Army - but not so heroic to many Czechs, and to others who value freedom. Once the statue was removed, all hell broke loose, and Kolar had to go into hiding. There were apparent threats against his life from the Russian government, and from fellow Czechs who sympathize with that government. With Jay, Ondrej Kolar talks about these events and the fate of freedom and democracy in his country.

294. David Pryce-Jones and a Grand Company David Pryce-Jones and a Grand Company 294 Thu, 30 Jul 2020 18:46:55 +0000 In a career of writing extraordinary books, David Pryce-Jones has written a new one: "Signatures: Literary Encounters of a Lifetime." DP-J has a collection of about a hundred books inscribed to him by their authors: Aldous Huxley, W. H. Auden, Saul Bellow, Somerset Maugham, Rebecca West, Erich Segal, and so on. He talks about these authors in "Signatures." The book is a series of brief lives, you might say, or brief encounters. (Sounds like the title of a movie.) It is also partly an autobiography, because the encounters provide windows on DP-J's own life.

"Signatures" is, in effect, a companion to "Fault Lines," Pryce-Jones's superb and magisterial autobiography of 2015.

DP-J is one of Jay's dearest friends and favorite people, and Jay enjoys this conversation immensely. You may well too.

293. French Teen Talks France French Teen Talks France 293 Mon, 27 Jul 2020 15:57:24 +0000 Mathis Bitton is a summer intern at National Review and a sophomore-to-be at Yale. He has a lot to say - about many subjects, but today's subject is France, a rich, varied, and inexhaustible subject, to be sure. Jay puts the young monsieur through some paces: about the French language, and English, for that matter; about French poets, novelists, painters, scientists, cars, etc.; about Napoleon and de Gaulle (how to view them?); about assimilation and identity; about a lot of things. Jay clearly has a ball listening to this kid, and you will as well. Check him out.

P.S. Jay may well do a Round 2 with Mathis, about things French. If you have a question you'd like put to the young man, tell Jay at jnordlinger@nationalreview.com.

292. Poland, Europe, and Beyond Poland, Europe, and Beyond 292 Mon, 20 Jul 2020 21:34:51 +0000 Radek Sikorski is a man of considerable experience: as a journalist, for National Review, The Spectator, and many other publications; and as a politician. Sikorski was foreign minister and defense minister of his country, Poland. Today, he is a member of the European Parliament. He talks with Jay about a slew of issues: the recent Polish election; the EU; NATO; the United States; Boris Johnson (his contemporary at Oxford); Viktor Orbán (ditto); Afghanistan (where Sikorski was a war correspondent); etc. A lot of ground is covered in this Q&A, with a very thoughtful, and experienced, and candid man.
