This is an adjunct to my long-running blog at Bookworm Room. There, I talk about politics and social issues from a conservative perspective. My blog's motto is "conservatives deal with facts and reach conclusions; liberals have conclusions and sell them as facts."
21st-century neo-paganism is worse than the original
Everyone recognizes that our dominant American culture marks a return to the pagan, but they don't see that, at a profound level, it's worse than the original.
I've been writing over the last decade about our culture's return to the pagan -- and, indeed, I'm not the only one making this point. A lot of people are. In this video podcast, I examine the many ways in which we are abandoning the Biblical worldview in favor of paganism. That's bad, but I argue that the West's neo-paganism, which has made huge headway in America, is even worse than the original. That's not just because we're killing people; it's because the goals are different.
2023-08-20 Bookworm Video Podcast: Maybe the good guys will win after all
A cheerful look at problems with the Georgia RICO indictment, within China, and for the leftists in Marin County.
The three stories I recount in this podcast give me hope. Whether it's the fact that even a stalwart NeverTrumper recognizes how horrible Fani Willis's RICO case against Trump is, the deep doo-doo into which China is sinking, or the fact that Marin's leftists are discovering that the piper inevitably must be paid, all of these are reports that will hearten you.

I've kept it short this time, focusing on one issue, which is the real -- and very weird -- beneficiary of the left's forced existential crisis.
No matter how you look at it, every one of the left's policies is intended to decrease dramatically the number of humans on earth. This is a very bizarre and horrible experiment. More than that, the ultimate intended beneficiary isn't who (or what) you think it is.

This is an unusually short video podcast (for me, at least) because it addresses just one issue: The schism between Republicans and conservatives.
Not only do I identify the issue, but I also offer suggestions for addressing what I see as a very serious problem in American politics. Plus, I want you to know there is reason to hope in America.

It's another thrilling ride through the flotsam and jetsam of my mind as I examine the social and political scenes in America today.
It's all here: following the money behind transgender madness in women's sports, Biblical morals, Hunter Biden as an unlikely 2nd Amendment warrior, reefer madness, Republican candidates who have gone to the dogs, the American institution that is the root of all of today's evils, and one Democrat judge who got what he voted for.
2023-05-18 Bookworm Video Podcast
On this podcast, gay activists v. gay men, crazy leftist ladies, why I don't trust RFK, Jr., a little secret behind so-called "white" crime, and a love letter to Pete Buttigieg.
The most important thing to note is that it's not my love letter to Pete Buttigieg. But that comes last. Before I get there, I discuss what makes gay activists different from men who are gay, why we'd have fewer crazy leftist women if men weren't marginalized, the problem (as I see it) with Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., and one of the statistical lies behind the wave of white crime Biden insists is terrifying the nation.
Excellent complement to the blog
I’ve been reading the Bookworm blog for years and enjoyed the thoroughly researched posts. This podcast is no different ... and I’m glad to have an audio alternative for Times I can’t read the blog (super for trips in the car.) I enjoyed the surprise “guest appearance” by Bookworm’s dog in Episode 13!
This podcast is what NPR’s “All Things Considered” lacks. A pointedly direct, yet refreshingly scholarly alternative take on current issues. I look forward to hearing the next episode.
