Unstuck in time, Jonah and Jack resort to that most desperate measure of a beleaguered podcast: an AMA Q&A.

Shownotes

National Review senior writer Jim Geraghty earns the honor of being Jonah’s first former National Review colleague to join the Remnant, coming onto the show to discuss Between Two Scorpions, his new thriller, and for some slightly-less-rank punditry.

Shownotes: 

Jonah invites George Will, author of The Conservative Sensibility, onto the Remnant to discuss the book and how George Will helped make him into a pundit in the first place.

Shownotes: 

Bears Want To Kill You author Ethan Nicolle joins The Remnant to counter incessant bear propaganda.

Is America going to war with Iran? What is John Bolton up to? What does Cyrus the Great have to do with it? AEI scholar Ken Pollack joins The Remnant to answer these and other questions.

Is everything the Boomers’ fault? Are Millennials actually the victims? Is Gen X the best generation? Jonah brings Wall Street Journal editorial board member and author of Theft of a Decade: How the Baby Boomers Stole the Millennials’ Economic Future Joe Sternberg onto The Remnant to answer these and other questions.

AEI scholar and (AEI president-to-be) Robert Doar joins The Remnant to talk New York politics, how capitalism isn’t failing, Seinfeld, and more.

What happened to Illinois? Why is Chicago so corrupt? Who is Michael Madigan, and why do the answers to both questions involve him? Live from Chicago itself, Jonah attempts to answer these questions with the help of John Tillman, CEO of the Illinois Policy Institute.

Jonah and his majordomo go guestless for the first time in a while for some rank punditry on Bill Barr and the Democratic field, and for some pop culture punditry on Avengers: Endgame and Game of Thrones.

 

National Review senior writer Michael Brendan Dougherty returns to The Remnant to discuss nationalism, patriotism, and identity, the themes of his new book, My Father Left Me Ireland.

Do politicians write their own books? What was it like to play basketball against Sarah Palin? How much of a slob is Jonah Goldberg? Jessica Gavora, noted D.C.-area writer (and wife of Jonah Goldberg) appears on the 101st (?) episode of The Remnant to answer these and other pressing questions.

For the 100th (?) episode of The Remnant, Thomas Sowell, who needs no introduction, joins Jonah for a long conversation on discrimination, inequality, the uses and misuses of economics (all subjects covered in the new edition of Discrimination and Disparities, out now), and more.

What is “nationalism”? Does it need to be benign? Is there a conservative case for the Austro-Hungarian Empire? The latest episode of The Remnant is actually audio of a conversation between Jonah, Rich Lowry, and Jim Geraghty at the 2019 National Review Ideas Summit.

George Mason University economics professor Tyler Cowen rejoins The Remnant for a wide-ranging conversation on big business, liberty, capitalism, and more, inspired by his new book, Big Business: A Love Letter To An American Anti-Hero.

Show Notes:

Remnant sidekick Jack Butler executes a coup, taking over the show from Jonah to host an episode interviewing Cornell University classical historian Barry Strauss about ancient Rome, which he covers in his new book, Ten Caesars: Roman Emperors from Augustus to Constantine.

Should we worry about income inequality? Is life better for most people today or 100 years ago? Is Bruce Springsteen’s music any good? AEI economics scholar Michael Strain returns to The Remnant to answer these and other questions.

National Review senior writer David French returns to The Remnant to discuss nationalism, Mueller, Marvel, and more.

Back from his trip abroad, Jonah returns to D.C. for some rank Mueller punditry and some aimless Jack-assisted potpourri.
