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.

Both have had enough discovery to know what the adversary will try to prove. Just as significantly, both know what their own vulnerabilities are. A litigator spends his pretrial ... Read More

Clarence Thomas Speaks

Those who know Justice Clarence Thomas say that any perception of him as dour or phlegmatic couldn't be more off-base. He's a charming, gracious, jovial man, full of bonhomie and easy with a laugh, or so I'm told by people who know him well. On summer breaks he likes to roam around the country in an RV and stay ...

Joe Rogan’s Endorsement of Bernie Makes Zero Sense

But Rogan’s stated justification for voting for Bernie Sanders makes no sense: I think I'll probably vote for Bernie . . . He’s been insanely consistent his entire ... Read More

Nadler’s Folly

Jerry Nadler must have missed the day in law school where they teach you about persuasion. The House Democrat made a critical error early in the trial of President Trump. He didn’t just say that Republican senators, who voted to begin the proceedings without calling witnesses, were part of a cover-up. He said ... Read More
