Two New NR Podcasts: Jaywalking and Projections

I’m pleased to announce that National Review has launched two new podcasts: Jaywalking, with Jay Nordlinger, and Projections, with Kyle Smith and Ross Douthat. Jaywalking, in Jay’s own words, is “an audio version of Impromptus, covering the usual range of topics — but with added touches, such as the playing of music.” Projections, as you might have inferred from the name and the hosts, is a movie podcast, on which Kyle and Ross will “chat about the latest movies in theaters, draw your attention to what’s great on cable and streaming services, and mull Hollywood trends.” 

I’d encourage you to subscribe to both on iTunes, Google Play, Stitcher, or TuneIn now, so each episode is automatically downloaded to whichever device you prefer. You can find the links to do so here for Jaywalking, and here for Projections.

If you’re a regular listener to NR’s podcast, I’d also be enormously grateful if you’d fill in our survey. I know it’s a little long, but it’ll help us improve what we’re doing. We’ve expanded from zero to ten podcasts — and from zero to millions of downloads — in a short time period. This is your chance to let us know what we’ve got wrong and what we’ve got right.

The more the climate debate changes, the more it stays the same.
