What do you get when you have two people who practically live to write talking about their craft, their passion for writing, the process of writing and what resources they draw upon to infuse the written word with the sort life and meaning that compel the reader to pay attention? Well, you get a conversation between DC McAllister and our own Dave Carter — one that we think you’ll find enjoyable.

Another day. Another mass shooting. While violent crime sits at near all-time lows, several of the worst mass shootings in our nation’s history have happened in the last several years. The recent mass shooting in Parkland, FL served to take the conversation to a new level where hopefully, conservatives and liberals can agree on some gun control reforms. Unfortunately, it won’t be easy. People still want “assault weapons bans” that do not work and “universal background checks” that do not serve a useful purpose. So what to do? National Review writer, attorney and Iraq War veteran David French joins Jay and Amy to talk about some of those solutions that could help and get conservative support.

Nicholas Burns is one of the leading U.S. diplomats of our time. For nearly 30 years, he served in the government, in a variety of posts: ambassador to NATO, for example. He had major responsibility for the Arab world, Iran, Russia, etc. Today, he teaches at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard, which is where Jay sat down with him. They talk over the world: North Korea and South Korea; Iran and its nuclear program; the Israel-Palestine question; Putin’s Kremlin; NATO and defense spending; and more. It’s an hour-long tutorial with one of the best. And, as Jay remarks at the end, free of charge.

It may be Presidents Day (it’s not, actually — more on that later), but the faculty lounge is still open for business. In this months’ session, Professors Richard Epstein and John Yoo are tackling the latest revelations from the Mueller investigation, what can be done about gun violence consistent with the Second Amendment, and whether restrictions on free speech have gone too far on college campuses.

Plus they’re weighing on the most overrated and underrated presidents (in pursuit of the elusive ‘Franklin Pierce fanboy’ demo), unnecessarily quoting Latin (guess who), and, yes, giving Professor Yoo, Philadelphia Eagles devotee, his moment in the sun.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are leery in general that any infrastructure bill can avoid becoming a huge waste of money but they are glad to see President Trump asking states to play a major role in funding the plan. They also unload on the mainstream media for writing glowing reviews of Kim Jong-Un’s sister and how she is supposedly executing a diplomatic masterpiece at the Olympics. And they rip the press for falling for the supposedly charming North Korean cheer squad, when they’re really slaves of a regime that will punish them and their families if they make any mistakes. And they roll their eyes at CNN for reporting that Sen. Bob Corker is thinking about reconsidering his retirement, even as Corker’s office says there is nothing to the story.

Who doesn’t love a parade? Certainly not us. We also love a rising market, good explanations of complicated investigations, and clear and concise commentary on the economy. That’s why we invited Andrew McCarthy and Larry Kudlow on this week’s show. They ably guide us through both issues with clarity, good humor, and yes, a bit of scolding. Also, a Minnesotan’s view of the Super Bowl and more about that bet with John Yoo.
