Today's podcast begins calmly with a conversation about whether people and voters take issues seriously or are now primarily motivated by negativity toward the other side. Then we start talking about Ukraine and Russia—and all hell breaks loose. If you dare, give a listen.
 
Today's podcast begins with a horror story from Chicago—a criminal run amok just a day or so after a judge released him on his own recognizance—and broadens it out to wonder whether the seeming halt in the Democratic polling surge is due to Republicans hitting them hard on crime. Then we get pretty dark about the possibility of bad stuff happening …
 
Matthew Continetti joins the podcast to discuss the alarming behavior of President Biden, who called out to a member of Congress who died in a car crash this summer. Not to mention the alarming behavior of Vladimir Putin, whose flailing in the course of his world-historic mistake may have a nuclear component. Give a listen.…
 
Today's podcast notes the $400 billion cost of Joe Biden's student debt "forgiveness" program and notes the irony of a supposedly progressive party favoring the well-to-do at the expense of the poor. Then there's the comic denouement of Joe Manchin's career and the approaching hurricane horror in Florida. Give a listen.…
 
Today's podcast takes up White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain's shocking attempt to claim Joe Biden came into office with an unemployment rate 40 percent higher than it was in point of fact—more evidence they're looking to retrofit the truth to help them in the midterms. And what's this about "long COVID"? Give a listen.…
 
Today's podcast goes through the bad news the ex-president received yesterday and whether the focus on Trump in the news is forestalling and covering up a shift back toward Republicans in the 2022 elections. And: Will Putin use a nuke? Give a listen.
 
American Enterprise Institute Senior Fellow Adam White joins the podcast to take on the courts. Did Joe Biden step on a legal landmine when he declared the pandemic “over?” Did Donald Trump err in pushing for a special master to review the classified documents he kept at Mar-a-Lago? And how can the Supreme Court preserve its legitimacy? Adam makes …
 
Commentary contributor and former deputy secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services, Tevi Troy, joins the podcast today for a wide-ranging conversation on his latest for the magazine, “The CDC’s Inadequate ‘Reform Plan.’” Did Joe Biden step in it when he declared the pandemic “over,” and can the CDC reform itself to avoid the failures…
 
The Commentary podcast reviews Joe Biden’s first one-on-one interview in a long while with CBS’ “60 Minutes.” Our verdict: meh. He didn’t set himself on fire, but nor did he defuse the issues that may cost Democrats control of Congress in November. Is “just fine” good enough for Joe Biden?
 
Today's podcast looks at a New York Times poll suggesting Democrats increasingly think the country is on the "right track." If so, what does the phrase "right track" actually mean, if anything? And more on illegals being treated so horribly they get to spend their first days in America on Martha's Vineyard. Give a listen.…
 
Today's podcast wonders at Joe Biden's decision to celebrate the "Inflation Reduction Act," complete with James Taylor warbling a 50-year-old ditty about drug abuse and suicide, on the day a terrible inflation number is released. The question: Will the media succeed in turning attention away from that and toward Republican extremism and abortion ri…
 
Today's podcast looks at the worse-than-expected inflation numbers and the determination of the media and Democrats to frame them as some kind of new normal and wonders what kind of strategy this might be for November.

The passing of Queen Elizabeth provides us with an opportunity to consider the question: Is there any figure left on the world stage who is known and admired for restraint rather than oversharing? And we express amazement at the current state of play in the war between Russia and Ukraine. Give a listen.…
 
Today's podcast takes up Texas Gov. Greg Abbott's efforts to expose the hypocrisy of "sanctuary city" mayors like Lori Lightfoot of Chicago by sending illegal immigrants northward to live where they are supposedly more "welcome"—which has caused Lightfoot to sputter in outrage. Also, issue polling: Does it tell us anything? Give a listen.…

Today's podcast looks at the politics of the judge's decision to appoint a special master to deal with the documents taken from Donald Trump's home and who will be helped or hurt by that. Plus, can it really be true that Democrats are viewed more favorably on COVID response than Republicans? Give a listen.…
 
The Hudson Institute's Tod Lindberg joins us to discuss the question of what kind of world-historical figure Mikhail Gorbachev actually was—a purposeful change agent or fortune's fool? Also, will Joe Biden suffer or gain from his harsh attacks on Republicans? Give a listen.Commentary Magazine
 
Today, we're joined by the great Chris Stirewalt to discuss the media frenzy over the redacted Mar-a-Lago affidavit, the transformation of the news business, the birth of the news cycle, and how it all relates to Chris's new book, "Broken News: Why the Media Rage Machine Divides America and How to Fight Back." Take a listen.…

Today's podcast takes up the stunning news that the Centers for Disease Control is going to undergo a complete overhaul. The question is: Is this the right overhaul, or are senior officials just covering themselves because they don't want to be held accountable? Give a listen.Commentary Magazine
 
Today's podcast was recorded last night—which led to ruminations on friendship, obnoxiousness, principle, conflict, and how these things might help explain the result in Wyoming that saw Liz Cheney lose her primary. Give a listen.Commentary Magazine
 
There are early indications that Republican candidates and campaign committees are languishing in the fundraising department, which could put a damper on their prospects in November. But Donald Trump isn’t. Will he make up the difference and support the candidates he’s endorsed? Also, will we get a reckoning with what we did during the pandemic in …
 
Today's podcast takes up the highly volatile political situation of the past week following the warrant search of Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago and the monstrous attack on Salman Rushdie. Give a listen.Commentary Magazine
 
What we know (and what we don’t know) about the warrant that justified the search of Mar-a-Lago. Is Donald Trump being targeted unjustly, or is there something there? Also, Mr. Science himself resurfaces to praise himself, the personification of empiricism and logic.Commentary Magazine
 
Today's podcast asks whether the people who really decide elections—the ones in the middle—look at partisans and ideologues on both sides and ask whether their visions and descriptions of American life as it is lived day to day are accurate or bonkers. Give a listen.Commentary Magazine
 
Mark Halperin joins the podcast to talk about the Democratic triumph with its big spending and climate change bill and how it looks like Republican candidates for the Senate (and for gubernatorial mansions) may not be able to capitalize on big liberal spending initiatives and other aspects of the supposed progressive surge this month. Give a listen…

Matthew Continetti joins the podcast today to discuss the strange surge of stories about how Joe Biden is on the verge of triumph just as inflation is getting worse and we're in a recession (probably). Is any of this rational? Give a listen.Commentary Magazine
 
Today's podcast takes up the mainstream media carry water for the Biden White House after the sobering news of a second straight quarter of negative economic growth. And what's this? Two gargantuan spending bills just at a time when the Fed is laboring to deal with inflation? Are we taking crazy pills? Give a listen.…
 
Today's podcast takes up the absolutely horrible polling for the president this week, showing him at an all-time low for post-war presidents at this stage of their tenures and Democrats openly saying nationally and in New Hampshire that they do not want him to run again. Give a listen.Commentary Magazine
