🎧 Jonah Goldberg | The Atlantic Interview

Listened to Jonah Goldberg by Jeffrey Goldberg from The Atlantic Interview
Writer Jonah Goldberg talks with The Atlantic's editor in chief Jeffrey Goldberg about being a conservative without a party in the age of Donald Trump. Jonah says there are many factors contributing to the dysfunction and paralysis in the Republican Party, and that thinkers and leaders on the right may have a very small window to fix these problems before the party disintegrates. Jeffrey and Jonah also discuss the experience of waiting in television green rooms.

Maybe I’m reading to or listening to all the wrong sources because I feel like I’m missing candid and open discussions like this one. Here Jonah Goldberg does an excellent job of discussing many of the unspoken problems within the Republican party right now. I wish there was more reporting on issues like these, though the problem is the way people providing their opinions are being vilified by some at the far right of what we used to know as the Republican party.

I’ll have to sample a bit of Jonah Goldberg’s podcast The Remnant for some additional insight to what is happening here. The sad and painful title of the show gives me a good idea of what I might expect.

Game theory gives me some hope that a centrist party may come out of the ashes of the 2016 election to provide some better pragmatic leadership.

  1. The Remnant with Jonah Goldberg by Jonah Goldberg (National Review)

    National Review senior editor and AEI fellow Jonah Goldberg 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.

    Following The Remnant with Jonah Goldberg podcast after hearing an interview of Jonah Goldberg on The Atlantic Interview. I’ll sample it for a bit to see if it’s as good as his interview with Jeffrey Goldberg indicated it might be.

  2. @JonahRemnant @JonahNRO FYI, your main podcast page http://www.nationalreview.com/media/remnant-jonah-goldberg has links to several other feeds from @NRO, but shockingly DOES NOT include a link to your *own* RSS Feed which seems to be http://www.nationalreview.com/taxonomy/term/7126/feed for the record.
    Have your web admin throw the following line into the header of your podcast’s page so it’s actually discoverable by feed readers:
    <link rel=”alternate” type=”application/rss+xml” title=”The Remnant with Jonah Goldberg” href=”http://www.nationalreview.com/taxonomy/term/7126/feed”>
    You should also have them include a “Subscribe Free” or “Subscribe via RSS” with that link in the main part of the page along with all the other options that appear like iTunes, Google Play, Stitcher, and TuneIn.
    I find that https://www.subtome.com has a great user friendly interface you might leverage to make subscribing via feed easier for those who prefer it.

  3. I like a lot of what he said here, but the part about a centrist party was a little perplexing. I’d love to see that happen, but Goldberg isn’t a centrist, so he’d still be stuck with the dumpster fire on the right… unless he’s undergone a major policy shift recently.
