The Remnant with Jonah Goldberg – a podcast: #130 – Iowa Law


In The Remnant with Jonah Goldberg, the National Review senior editor and AEI 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.

This Episode 30082019

Back in D.C., Jonah invites Iowan, AEI Fellow, and constitutional law expert Adam White to the Remnant to discuss originalism, separation of powers, and the Constitution (and to break a certain other constitutional law expert’s legal monopoly on the show).
