Sponsored by SimpliSafe
John J. Pitney Jr. is a famous conservative professor of political science. He works at Claremont McKenna College, in California. Jay asks him about California - is there any gold left in it?
He also asks Pitney about his upbringing and education. And about his conservatism. How did he get that way? Well, at 13, he started reading National Review and corresponding with William F. Buckley Jr.
What about life on campus? Are students teachable, or are they aflame with ideology? What about the current GOP (which Pitney has left, after a lifetime)?
Jay further asks Pitney about his work on "the politics of autism." And about his political heroes. And more. ("Whaddaya read, to keep informed?")
