Episode 17: Genes, Gin, and Government



Charles Murray comes to the Remnant with the wisdom of a decades-long career and now 75 years of life for a fascinating conversation with Jonah. They cover the bases . . . if your bases are social science, the future of America, and whether there can be such a thing as a “vodka martini.” The Remnant crew also helps Jonah search for a new catchphrase.

Intro and closing music is from “The Wrong Side of the Road” by Remnant listener Patterico, as covered by Steve Bertrand.


Episode 16: Iran, So Far Away



Jonah rocks the casbah in the latest Remnant, with Middle East scholar Michael Rubin, who helps him assess the condition of the regimes of Iran and Turkey and the status of the Middle East and Islam generally.

Podcast intro and closing music is “March of the Elephants” by Remnant listener Craig Robison.
