Latest Episodes

Episode 45: Improvisations

Jay takes a little tour, in the style of this podcast. It concludes with a song from Mexico.

Episode 44: Carried Off

Jay ends this podcast with a chorus, a heavenly chorus, carrying us off into the eternal blue.

Episode 43: Waltzing Around

Jay indeed plays a waltz -- a spooky one. He also talks about our censorious culture, personal responsibility, peculiarities of language, and more.

Episode 41: Keeping Your Hopes Up

Saudi Arabia, American politics, an age of disruption, baseball, China, Russia, music -- Jay runs a gamut. Among the musicians heard is Taylor Swift.

Episode 40: Pick Up the Pace

Jay talks about politics and music. We hear from the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, which has just had a name change, and from a late, great Spanish soprano.

Episode 38: Feel the Buzz

Jay starts out with a little music, including the one about the bee. Then he gets into some political issues -- before ending with golf, tennis, and, again, music.

Conservative prime minister Scott Morrison shocked pollsters and pundits alike with his victory on Saturday, and the reaction has been brutal ... Read More

We’ve Had Bill Barr’s Back

One of the more dismaying features of the national political debate lately is how casually and cynically Attorney General Bill Barr has been smeared. He is routinely compared to Roy Cohn on a cable-TV program that prides itself on assembling the most thoughtful and plugged-in political analysts and ... Read More
