Magna Carta, Holy Grail.

On this week’s installment of The Ruminant, Jonah talks about all the things he says he doesn’t want to talk about. Digs are thrown at tariffs, the administrative state, popular fronts, and executive orders. The definitions of unity and democracy are debated as Jonah bushwhacks the path towards productive political debate. To close it all out, Jonah revisits the Juneteenth discourse and addresses his Soviet kerfuffle with Niall Ferguson.

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.
