Rank #1: Commentary Podcast: Let’s Unpack CPAC

Podcast cover
Read more
The annual Conservative Political Action Conference had its share of controversies this year, as it usually does. In the context of a maturing Trump era, however, they merit renewed scrutiny. What does this conference and say about the movement it seeks to represent? The COMMENTARY podcast’s hosts break it down. Also, new information about how the Broward County Sheriff’s Office failed its constituents. Does that mean the gun control debate is off track?

Rank #2: Commentary Podcast: The Week Trump Learned He Is President

Podcast cover
Read more
Wow! It's the first anniversary of the COMMENTARY Magazine Podcast! So it's long and wordy and a little hysterical! Three subjects consume Noah Rothman, Abe Greenwald, and me. 1) The cascading foreign-policy programs that are forcing Donald Trump to consider his role as leader of the free world. 2) The war inside the White House. 3) The condition of the Republicans on Capitol Hill. It's good. It's passionate. It's the beginning of Year Two. Give a listen.

Rank #4: Commentary Podcast: Deal or No Deal

Podcast cover
Read more
Will Donald Trump pull us out of the Iran deal two days before a big celebration of the Israel embassy move to Jerusalem—and at a time when the big news will still be the North Korea negotiations? We wonder, and wonder what the plan would be if he would. Then we talk about how you never really want to know the name of the Secretary of Veterans Affairs because if you do, it means nothing good. Give a listen.

Rank #7: Commentary Podcast: Don't Know Why Ain't No Sun Up in the Sky, Stormy Daniels

Podcast cover

The president and the porn star (and why are all porn actresses "stars"), not to mention whether you can have a wave election if the Senate doesn't follow the wave, along with false "boom" news items about Trump and Russia, and California defying federal law and yelling at Jeff Sessions, and a lot of anti-Semitism. It's a podcast. Give a listen.

Rank #9: Commentary Podcast: Pompeo and Circumstance

Podcast cover
Read more
On our latest COMMENTARY podcast we wonder at the fact that Democrats are going to vote en masse against Mike Pompeo as secretary of state for no real reason other than that they don't like Trump—and how this marks the fulfillment of a degradation in the advise-and-consent process that's been accelerating for the past couple of decades. Also, we talk about Stormy Daniels, alas. Give a listen.

Rank #10: Commentary podcast: Comey Comey Comey Comey Comey Chameleon

Podcast cover

James Comey is going to sell 2 million books or something, but it's far from clear his inadvertently revealing interview with George Stephanopoulos did him any favors. On our podcast, we discuss the ways in which Comey injured his own case for himself by showing us his narcissism and the sheer number of bad decisions he has made. We also look at the raid on Syria and on the continuing dream on the part of liberals that Trump is done for. Give a listen.

Rank #13: Commentary Podcast: Was the FISA Warrant Unwarranted?

Podcast cover
Read more
The COMMENTARY Podcast hosts dissect the Justice Department’s disclosure of the FISA warrant that was used to surveil Carter Page; or, at least, the parts of the warrant that aren’t entirely redacted. They debate the pro- and anti-Trump camps’ claims, both of which are citing the warrant to claim victory. Also, the hosts explore the phenomenon of “owning the libs” and the joy it produces for its practitioners.

Podcast cover

Will tomorrow's primary elections in the GOP signal another turn in the party toward candidates who mimic Donald Trump's attitudes and affect? That's the question we focus on today, as well as the question of whether Democrats and liberals are falling prey to a temptation that will harm their efforts to get Trump—which is to embrace figures like Stormy Daniels and thereby normalize the president. Give a listen.

Rank #20: Commentary Podcast: So Maybe a Little Collusion

Podcast cover

News this week makes the argument that the Trump campaign might have engaged in at least some footsie with Russia harder to refute than ever, as we discuss on the podcast. The other matter we discuss is the startling fact that Barack Obama tried to take credit for the fracking revolution his administration tried to stop in its tracks—and how it connects to the new climate change report.
