On the first of this week’s COMMENTARY podcasts, Noah Rothman and Abe Greenwald join John Podhoretz to sort through–and they do it systematically, which is a first–what is going on with the Russia investigation and how it divides into three categories. There’s the question of the probe itself, there’s the question of collusion, and there’s the question of obstruction of justice. It’s really good. Really. Give a listen.

The President is on the record, the WSJ’s Bill McGurn talks about Charlie Gard, The Washington Post’s Bob Costa on the mood in DC, @Lileks ponders Russian history, Long wonders who’s going to get fired, and Robinson has one last question. Or three.

The first COMMENTARY podcast of the week finds John Podhoretz, Abe Greenwald, and Noah Rothman wondering what a poll showing the president with 36 percent support could mean when he won the presidency with a 65 percent disapproval rating. Have the rules of American politics changed? And how does this relate to Season 7 of “Game of Thrones”? Promise: No spoilers! Give a listen.

In the first of this week’s COMMENTARY podcasts, the COMMENTARY crew go through the series of bombshell revelations this weekend about the heretofore undisclosed 2016 meeting between Donald Trump’s son, son-in-law, and campaign manager with a Russian lawyer that evidently began with promises of Kremlin information about Hillary Clinton. Noah Rothman thinks this could be curtains for Trump. John says wanting to collude and colluding are two different things. Abe Greenwald says we’re both right. Then we take up Trump’s Poland speech and its defense of Western Civ and the moral idiocy of those attacking him for doing so. Give a listen.

On this week’s first COMMENTARY podcast, Abe Greenwald and John Podhoretz say yes and Noah Rothman says no. Noah makes a valiant effort at being sensible but I’m not sure he prevails over my and Abe’s hysteria. Give a listen.

Is the COMMENTARY podcast a downer? That’s what one reader said, referencing its “crushing morosity.” Well, this one with John Podhoretz and Abe Greenwald isn’t exactly going to lift your spirits, what with its discussion of the shooting at the GOP baseball practice, the shadows looming over the Trump presidency, and other light topics. But it’s interesting! Give a listen.

The first of this week’s podcasts finds Noah Rothman, Abe Greenwald, and John Podhoretz considering the behavior of the president after the London attacks and the desire somehow to transfer all attention from the jihadis who perpetrated them to the president who attacked the mayor who attacked the president…and a salute to Israel on the 50th anniversary of the Six Day War. Give a listen.

Our first topic this week is the psychological stability, or lack thereof, of the left. A report in the L.A. Times by Soumya Karlamangla described the problems that therapists of America are having in treating people with depression, anxiety and general craziness on account of the recent political turn of events (shhh…the election of Trump). Is the root of the problem that the left feels – the origin of the hysteria that Trump’s election has wrought – the lack of ability of leftists to cope with their own mortality? That’s my theory. Todd has his too.

This week, our pal and former colleague Mollie Hemingway sits in and fortuitously, there’s a ton of media stories to discuss, starting with the President’s epic press conference. Later, NewsMax CEO and Presidential BFF Chris Ruddy joins to give us his insider POV of the machinations of White House staff. Then another old colleague, author and musician James Poulos stops by to discuss why he’s intent on making Tocqueville great again with his new book The Art of Being Free: How Alexis de Tocqueville Can Save Us from Ourselves.

This week on the podcast we discuss the poster child for amnesty, the golden nugget sympathy case for open borders, Guadalupe Garcia de Rayos. De Rayos, or as we think of her, mother Guady, has been deported. She is a mother of two American-born children (i.e. anchor babies). She has been in America for 22 years. She came here as a 14 year old looking for a better life. She is doing what she is doing “out of love.” (Where have we heard *that* before??). And she only committed one, almost insignificant felony (identity theft) and she’s reaaaalllly sorry about that. The elitist media Cannot Conceive of why anyone would want the law to be enforced and mother Guady forced to leave. The reaction of the average deplorable is, however, “it’s about time.”

The hard part about producing a podcast these days is finding topics to discuss. In the era of Trump, not much happens. Well, we struggle to carry on with our guests John Yoo on the trials and tribulations of Trump’s executive order and Judge Gorsuch, and El Rush Bro himself, David Limbaugh on the President’s first two weeks (wait — it’s only been two weeks?) Also, Elizabeth Warren gets sent to her room and a hearty Ricochet Podcast Mazel Tov to Ricochet members @1967mustangman and @VicrylContessa on the occasion of their engagement. We wish them a smart and civil marriage with little or no need for moderators.

To mark this historical day, we’ve assembled a panel that we think reflects all sides of the new Trump administration — a mashup of the Ricochet Podcast and Need To Know with Charen and Nordlinger with a dash of Victor Davis Hanson thrown in for flavoring. It’s a bracing conversation that really gets into the weeds on the election and what may lie ahead.
