Welcome to the Whiskey Politics Podcast hosted by Dave Sussman. Whiskey Politics takes a civil tone and has fun while talking about serious issues, and interviewing political luminaries, pundits, and journalists.
John O’Sullivan joins Whiskey Politics and generously covers many issues, starting with O’Sullivan’s Law: “All organizations that are not actually right-wing will over time become left-wing.” We discuss Trumps U.N. speech, North Korea (#Dotard!), William F. Buckley, today’s National Review and the Never Trumper’s, Europe in the age of Trump, why the conservative Australian model for Immigration works, the worldwide attacks on Free Speech, and should Google and Facebook be nationalized?
John is a former editor of National Review and since been editor-at-large of National Review and a senior fellow at the National Review Institute. He is also president of the Danube Institute, a think-tank devoted to promoting conservative and classical liberal ideas in Budapest, from where we had a fascinating discussion earlier this year with the Deputy Director and John’s better half, Melissa O’Sullivan which you can find here: Whiskey Politics. John also serves as director of the think-tank, 21st Century Initiatives in Washington DC. For decades John has been read, seen and heard across the media and served as Editor or Editor in chiefs at many publications including The London Times, Daily Telegraph, New York Post editorial, and others.More
