In "The Remnant with Jonah Goldberg," syndicated columnist, best-selling author, and AEI/NRI Fellow enlists a "Cannonball Run"-style cast of stars, has-beens, and never-weres to address the most pressing issues of the day and of all-time. Is Western Civilization doomed? Is nationalism the wave of the future? Is the Pope Catholic? Will they ever find a new place to put cheese on a pizza? Is Die Hard a Christmas movie? Who is hotter: Ginger or Mary-Ann? Was Plato really endorsing the Republic as the ideal state? Mixing history, pop culture, rank-punditry, political philosophy, and, at times, shameless book-plugging, Goldberg and guests will have the kinds of conversations we wish they had on cable-TV shout shows. And the nudity will (almost) always be tasteful.

Hysterical (in the good way)

Now that the archives are back I’ve been listening to the old ones. THEY ARE SO GOOD. ALL OF THEM. OLD and NEW. Wow

Entertaining and informative

Jonah always presents his views well, bring in interesting guests and, most importantly, is never boring.

Uh um er uhhhhh

This was intended as feedback to Jonah rather than a review for prospective listeners, but I thought it good to add a bit to that group:

If you’re familiar with Jonah and you like his writing and other work you’ll like this. If you don’t know who he is, he is a conservative worthy of the name (promulgating the conservation of the classical liberal philosophy of the founders) who seems to have a pretty clear view of American politics and culture, is laid back, doesn’t have to make every issue overly serious or take himself as such, and doesn’t let principals trump principles.

If you don’t know anything about what conservatism (or classical liberalism/libertarianism/whatev) really is, he is a great inroad to overcoming pop culture stereotypes and misinformation. I may disagree with him on some important issues – e.g., drugs and censorship - but he doesn’t argue in bad faith. He’s second only to Friedman and Sowell as personal favorite in educating and defending the ideology of liberty, but equal in terms of enjoyability.

To Jonah directly, I uh wish that um you er uh would um work on the uh speech disfluency. I love to listen to uh the uh words of substance, but I um er uh get distracted and irritated by the Podhoretz-esque verbal ticks which uh seem to uh be getting worse over uh time. (I can’t listen to GLOP anymore due to my blood pressure spiking every time I hear Pod’s resonant vocal fry “uhhhhhhh” every other word, which I assume is enhanced by adenoids the size of basketballs).

Other than that, excellent job.
