Two for Texas

Open in playerListen on);
In “The Remnant," Jonah Goldberg, the founder and editor-in-chief of The Dispatch, 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.
Episode details

Get your black robes, white wigs, and legal dictionaries ready, because David French is back on The Remnant to evaluate Texas’ controversial new abortion ruling. He and Jonah also explore the Supreme Court’s history of inventing doctrines that can’t be found in written law, before turning to the 20th anniversary of 9/11 and what America’s response to such a tragedy would look like in today’s hyperpolarized moment. Does the Second Amendment protect ownership of surface-to-air missiles? What changes have occured in the pro-life movement? And will Spider-Man: No Way Homedestroy the Marvel Universe as we know it?
