On the 20th anniversary of 9/11, Jack brings Nic Rowan back to the show for a conversation about the day: Their memories of it as it happened, the cultural effects, its ultimate historical legacy, and more.

Wisconsin teacher and fellow Millennial/runner Daniel Buck joins Jack to discuss some of the challenges of being an educator in a time of coronavirus and wokeness.

With Jack temporarily out of the news cycle, he asks Brady Holmer, his fitness-expert friend and fellow runner and podcast host, to talk about something a bit removed from the headlines (though not entirely): America’s obesity epidemic. They discuss how bad it is, how it got so bad, and what, if anything, can be done about it.

With everyone talking about Big  Tech these days, Jack brings on his National Review colleague Daniel Tenreiro to discuss whether the companies are monopolies, what (if anything) should be done about their business practices, which anti-Big-Tech arguments hold water and which don’t, and more.

Jack Butler brings his National Review colleague Jimmy Quinn back to the show to attempt to solve the dual problem of corporations that advance left-wing pieties at home but roll over for the Chinese Communist Party abroad (and also at home).

Jack brings his National Review colleague Cameron Hilditch back to the show and attempts to force him to take a side on the plausibility of recent UFO revelations. The two then ponder the theological implications of possible extraterrestrial life, and wonder whether one should baptize an extraterrestrial.

Isaac Schorr returns to go over the somewhat dispiriting results of a YAF poll that revealed the extent of young people’s liberalism, and to try to figure out what, if anything, can be done about it.

Madeleine Kearns rejoins Jack to discuss her problems with the growing marijuana industry, one that would rather ignore a growing body of evidence that the increasingly popular and legal drug has some serious negative consequences for users.

Jack is joined by his National Review colleague Mark Antonio Wright, who, in the course of his (relatively) young life, has spent time living in Mexico, roughnecking in oil fields, serving in the Marines, and, now, attempting to give advice to young people with his new “Vitruvian Life” column for NRO. If you’re a young person with questions you want him to answer, email Vitruvian.Life@nationalreview.com.

After a long delay for which he offers profuse apologies, Jack returns to the podcast with his National Review colleague Isaac Schorr to mock Joe Biden’s goals for a return to normal life (maybe the Fourth of July? Are you kidding?), goals that seem disconnected from reality but definitely connected to the now year-long pattern of government bureaucrats wanting to tell us what to do.

Jack brings on Reason editor Robby Soave to discuss the struggle (against . . . teachers?) to reopen schools, and the terrible consequences for kids — you know, the people the schools are supposed to be for — of their being closed.

Jack interviews Andrew Egger and Audrey Fahlberg, two writers for The Dispatch who witnessed the chaos at Capitol Hill last Wednesday firsthand, to get a full account of what happened.

For the last episode of 2020, Jack goes shockingly topical, inviting his friend Noah Weinrich, a Georgia native, to discuss and — with some cajoling — predict what will happen in his home state’s upcoming Senate runoff elections.

Jack brings on his National Review colleague Alexandra DeSanctis to discuss why Pornhub is evil, and what we can do about it and the broader pornography epidemic, even as porn itself grows in social acceptability.

With the tenth anniversary of Kanye West’s album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy upon us, Jack takes the opportunity to discuss the music and the persona of its creator with Kanye enthusiast George Messenger.

Taking a break from politics, Jack brings back his friend, budding exercise scientist Brady Holmer, to talk about what the “runner’s high” really is, how it doesn’t mean that running is all hunky-dory, and how to deal with running-related setbacks.

Don’t let the rancor of the election mislead you: America is awesome. But sometimes it takes an outsider to be truly persuasive, so Jack brings on his National Review colleague Cameron Hilditch, currently living in Northern Ireland, to explain why he loves America and why its critics are mistaken. Along the way, they also converse about Lord of the Rings, the merits of Tennessee, and other topics.

Jack brings on Citizens’ Climate Lobby Conservative Fellow Nate Hochman to hear out Nate’s case for a conservative climate change agenda.
