Led by host Jack Butler, an associate editor of National Review Online, an ever-shifting cast of young, (mostly) right-leaning millennials discuss the news and culture of the day, offering unique insight on things people their age are actually experiencing.
The Vitruvian Oklahoman
Jack is joined by his National Review colleague Mark Antonio Wright, who, in the course of his (relatively) young life, has spent time living in Mexico, roughnecking in oil fields, serving in the Marines, and, now, attempting to give advice to young people with his new “Vitruvian Life” column for NRO. If you’re a young […]
Joe Biden vs. the Fourth of July
After a long delay for which he offers profuse apologies, Jack returns to the podcast with his National Review colleague Isaac Schorr to mock Joe Biden’s goals for a return to normal life (maybe the Fourth of July? Are you kidding?), goals that seem disconnected from reality but definitely connected to the now year-long pattern […]
School’s Out . . . Forever?
Jack brings on Reason editor Robby Soave to discuss the struggle (against . . . teachers?) to reopen schools, and the terrible consequences for kids — you know, the people the schools are supposed to be for — of their being closed.
Among the Capitol Hill Thugs
Jack interviews Andrew Egger and Audrey Fahlberg, two writers for The Dispatch who witnessed the chaos at Capitol Hill last Wednesday firsthand, to get a full account of what happened.
The Podcast Went Down to Georgia
For the last episode of 2020, Jack goes shockingly topical, inviting his friend Noah Weinrich, a Georgia native, to discuss and — with some cajoling — predict what will happen in his home state’s upcoming Senate runoff elections.
The PornHub Hubbub
Jack brings on his National Review colleague Alexandra DeSanctis to discuss why Pornhub is evil, and what we can do about it and the broader pornography epidemic, even as porn itself grows in social acceptability.
My attempt to stay in touch with my much younger self, has me listening.
Good insight from someone on the cusp of 30.
Enjoy Jack’s corky takes
I enjoy Jack’s corky takes on issues and the general nerdery. I am about his age too and enjoy the politics and philosophy mixed with my pop culture growing up. And as a semi nerd I like listening to someone who knows more about the syfi and fiction than I do. I don’t need to read those classics anymore lol.
