The Stakes: Critical Race Theory
In this special edition of The American Mind Podcast, Michael Anton, former Trump official and senior fellow at the Claremont Institute, is joined by Charles Haywood, a distinguished book reviewer who runs The Worthy House. Anton and Haywood examine the modern Left’s obsession with the racist and destructive creed known as Critical Race Theory.

Big Finance | The Roundtable Ep. 73
BlackRock, the world’s largest asset management firm, is buying up whole neighborhoods of single-family homes. Why? To make sure you’ll be paying them rent for life instead of owning your own home. Meanwhile, other financial institutions are desperately trying to strangle cryptocurrencies in the cradle and protect the current balance of power. Plus: Kamala Harris visited Guatemala—and bombed. Our editors analyze the situation.

Pride | The Roundtable Ep. 72
We’re now in the opening days of LGBT pride month—not that anyone needs reminding, as corporations across America fall over themselves to celebrate the rainbow. But today the editors pause to analyze pride in a larger sense: what it is, who should have it, and for what reasons.

The Stakes: The American Monarchy?
In this special edition of The American Mind Podcast, Michael Anton, former Trump official and senior fellow at the Claremont Institute, is joined by Curtis Yarvin, formerly “Mencius Moldbug” of the successful blog “Unqualified Reservations.” The two debate what to do if and when the current regime crumbles under the weight of its own incompetence. Yarvin makes his case for a Big Tech CEO-turned-monarch.

Lies and More Lies | The Roundtable Ep. 71
A miracle has occurred! Suddenly, the media is warming to the idea that COVID might have leaked from a Wuhan biolab—an idea which, just last year, they condemned as dangerous conspiracy. But of course that has nothing to do with President Biden having won the election. Surely not. Nor, certainly, is the “January 6 Commission” a cynical power play by house Democrats. Our editors discuss what all this is really about.

Unmasked | The Roundtable Ep. 70
The CDC has newly proclaimed that vaccinated people no longer need to mask up (duh). But some people can’t seem to let go of the ritual. Plus: violent conflict breaks out between Israel and Palestine. It’s a skeleton crew this week—just Seth and Spencer—as the rest of the cast are out at Claremont’s Washington, D.C. event. Together the two tackle the week’s weighty events and the Left’s appalling response.

In this newly revived occasional series, Ryan Williams, President of The Claremont Institute, interviews prominent scholars in the Claremont Institute's orbit.

Ryan and Mark discuss prudence, the common good, and how American public life could regain its sanity.

The Rise of the Woke Regime | The Roundtable Ep. 69
The rapidly spreading woke dogma that has taken over our CIA now seems to be ascendant in the military. What does that mean for national security? Our editors analyze. Plus: Liz Cheney has been ousted from GOP leadership, which is good news for everyone who wants to see the the uniparty, anti-American establishment gone.
65 minutes | May 7, 2021
Woke and Dagger | The Roundtable Ep. 68
Like so many of our crumbling institutions, the CIA is experiencing a woke takeover of its own, which it’s advertising in incredibly cringey ways. Meanwhile, the forever war in Afghanistan is hopefully reaching a final endpoint. Our editors reflect on what we learned from the experience. Plus: Part I in a mini-series on mapping the political landscape of the American Right.

Special Edition: America in Decay: Hope or Despair?
In this special edition of The American Mind Podcast, Michael Anton, lecturer and research fellow at Hillsdale College, senior fellow at the Claremont Institute, and former Trump Administration national security official, is joined by Charles Haywood, who runs The Worthy House and is a distinguished book reviewer. The two discuss the future of a country in crisis, touching on a wide array of topics in the process—from questions of political philosophy both contemporary and ancient, to the balance between hope and despair at the decay of the American regime.

Recall Fever | The Roundtable Ep. 67
It’s official: Governor Gavin Newsom will face a recall election later this year. Besides the sheer glee of watching Gavin get the boot, our editors have many thoughts about what all this might mean for California and the great national reshuffle. Meanwhile, Texas and Florida take action against big tech, and Jonah Goldberg attacked Claremont on his podcast recently. The cast responds.

Who Needs a Trial? | The Roundtable Ep. 66
Derek Chauvin, the police officer most prominently involved in the death of George Floyd, was found guilty of all charges against him yesterday. This of course did nothing to appease the leftist mob. When Ma’Khia Bryant was shot and killed by police while brandishing a knife, the hive mind immediately switched gears and zeroed in on Bryant’s story. Our editors examine the media forces at work and the deeper issues festering beneath the veneer of righteous fury.

Breaking the States | The Roundtable Ep. 65
With control of Congress and the presidency, Democrats have taken the first steps toward making Washington, D.C. the fifty-first state. But there is even more here than meets the eye, and the rationale behind the Left’s push to transform voting is truly sinister. Our editors analyze the situation and underlying arguments.

Wokeness Comes for the GOP | The Roundtable Ep. 64 ft. Scott Yenor
From Vermont to Arkansas, GOP governors are bowing to wokeness in spectacular displays of misunderstanding of what time it is politically. Scott Yenor, a Washington Fellow for the Center for the American Way of Life, joins the podcast as a special guest to analyze the depths of depravity feminism and wokeness have brought us to.

Digital Exile | The Roundtable Ep. 63
Big Tech’s at it again, censoring people—including us—as the effort to scrub Trump from the public square continues. Voting rights is the new hot-button issue, especially in Georgia. And what does US policy in Afghanistan tell us about Biden? If you’re coming here from YouTube to get the uncensored version, start at 26:03.

Racialized Tragedy | The Roundtable Ep. 62
It’s been a sad week for America. A shooting in Boulder claimed the lives of ten people. And like clockwork, the Left is using it as an opportunity to feast on the Second Amendment. That’s not even the only crisis of the week: the Biden administration is massively fumbling on the border, by conservative and liberal standards. Plus: Kristi Noem fails to read the political room. Twice.

President Deepfake | The Roundtable Ep. 61
Did you watch the Grammys? Us neither. Won’t stop our editors from talking about it, though we’re more interested in a viral clip of Joe Biden—is it deepfaked? It’s not, but it might as well be. Our editors unpack both topics. Plus: it's a battle of the Governors as Gavin Newsom faces recall and Ron DeSantis pops red pill after red pill.

The Woke Orthodoxy | The Roundtable Ep. 60
If you’re a wealthy prep school parent wanting to discuss how the maw of woke culture is swallowing up all things good and true, you’ll have to do it in secret or face instant cancellation. Meanwhile, the House passed the dubiously-titled “For the People Act,” which would do a number on representative government. Plus: The good and bad of National Review.
67 minutes | Mar 5, 2021
COVID and Cancel Culture | The Roundtable Ep. 59
The light at the end of the COVID tunnel is finally within sight—provided you live in a red state. Blue states remain under the thumbs of petty tyrants. Meanwhile, cancel culture claims new victims, from Mr. Potato Head to Dr. Seuss. Plus: Sacramento’s school district is pushing for the formation of “racial affinity groups”—a new caste system looms.
