    Is It Covid or the Condescension?

    Is It Covid or the Condescension?

    As Democrats gradually awaken to the political detriments posed by their efforts to cling to Covid hawkishness, we wonder when or if they will decide that self-preservation demands that they loosen pandemic-related restrictions. Do Democrats even have a vocabulary that would allow them to do that?

    What Is the Alternative to American Power?

    What Is the Alternative to American Power?

    As the prospect of a Russian move into Ukraine looks more and more imminent, how will American voters respond to that threat to the post-Cold War geopolitical order? Can the neo-isolationism preferred by elements on the right and left win a majority, or does the voting public have a firmer grasp on what the loss of American hegemony would mean than the intellectual class?

Today’s discussion on schools

Thank you for today’s comprehensive discussion on school closures and curriculum. As a concerned parent who pulled their child from private school to homeschool I feel
It is important to know that this issue goes beyond public school. I appreciate Christine and John bringing this vital topic up often.

my favorite flavor of crushing morosity

Come for the best intro music in all of podcastdom, stay for the existential despair in John's voice when he reads an ad for X-Chair.

A good sometime listen

They're smart folks and often have interesting and provocative views, ideas. But they're so consumed by their delirious hatred of Biden that they're prone to dissemble, distort, and even outright lie about a lot of things. So you have to have a pretty high tolerance for outgroup sniping. nbd. Mostly though the podcast serves as a platform for Putz-horetz to give vent to his seething impotent rage at his cultural irrelevance. It's pretty raw, pretty naked. Gotta feel for the guy.
