A Constitutional Revival

Can James Madison solve all our problems?

The one and only Yuval Levin, director of Social, Cultural, and Constitutional Studies at the American Enterprise Institute, joins Jonah to discuss his new book, American Covenant: How the Constitution Unified Our NationAnd Could Again. Jonah peppers Yuval with a variety of questions: Is the Constitution a cultural document or a document that creates the culture? Why are the principles of the Constitution so hard to export? How do we interpret the Civil War-era amendments? Buckle in for a deep dive on unity, the Electoral College, and a healthy dose of Woodrow Wilson slander.

Jonah Goldberg is editor-in-chief and co-founder of The Dispatch, based in Washington, D.C. Prior to that, enormous lizards roamed the Earth. More immediately prior to that, Jonah spent two decades at National Review, where he was a senior editor, among other things. He is also a bestselling author, longtime columnist for the Los Angeles Times, commentator for CNN, and a senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute. When he is not writing the G-File or hosting The Remnant podcast, he finds real joy in family time, attending to his dogs and cat, and blaming Steve Hayes for various things.
