232. Big Book Shakes Washington

The new year begins with a behind the scenes book that President Trump is attempting to suppress. Jay and Mona consider its merits or faults. This leads to a discussion of conservative virtues and Burke v. Paine. They then move on to Steve Bannon, Mitt Romney, Sweden, the British health service, and parties.

231. Starry Night

NTK reviews the week’s news – and 2017’s, and then reflects on a little known Romanian heroine, a New Jersey senator who stood up to Andrew Jackson (his descendant is in the House today), and some thoughts on the heavens (UFOs and the Milky Way).

230. Sadder But Wiser

Moore is gone. Is Bannonism? Could you imagine voting for a Democrat? Do you fall in love with politicians? Some of the questions Jay and Mona tackle this week.

229. Jerusalem, peace, and the changing world

Jay and Mona talk a little Roy Moore (as little as possible) and then consider the state of the Democrats and Republicans, the recognition of Jerusalem, Kuwaiti TV, immigration, abortion, and Hogan’s Heroes – inter alia.

228. Sex and Taxes

But taxes first. National Review’s Ramesh Ponnuru joins to provide his perspicacious insights on all things tax related, including a rebuttal to the WSJ arguments about the child tax credit. Jay and Mona then consider whether Trump’s style will harm the Republican Party, and how well populism is faring. They also discuss the hypocrisy of both right and left regarding sex scandals and sexual harassment. Subscribe to Need to Know in iTunes (and leave a 5-star review, please!), or by RSS feed.

227. This Is Where Sexual Revolution Gets You

Need to Know pulls back the lens on the storm of sexual harassment charges to ask how this happened. Jay and Mona speak of uncomfortable subjects, like whether you should always believe women, the malice and schadenfreude on both sides, and porn, the great sewer beneath all of it.

226. What the 2017 Elections Mean

Jay and Mona chew over the election results and ask whether the Republican civil war is on or off. They also consider Chief of Staff Kelly’s comments about China, the reforms – if that’s what they are – in Saudi Arabia, Nigel Farage and the “Jewish lobby,” and whether music can mean something.

225. Designated Hitter

That could describe Charlie Sykes – a powerful batter for truth, conservative ideas, and integrity. He joins to talk about his new book – How The Right Lost Its Mind. Jay and Mona then turn to the Mueller investigation, latent libertarianism, and yes – baseball. Subscribe to Need to Know in iTunes (and leave a 5-star review, please!), or by RSS feed.

224. The Bolsheviks At 100

Or very nearly. Jay and Mona reflect on New York City’s glorious renewal, the work of great philanthropists, the worth of work in general, Putin’s Kafkaesque assault on truth, and a grim anniversary, among many other topics.

223. Doglessness

Jay and Mona talk gossip—the morality of it. They don’t traffic in it. They offer their take on the week’s imbroglios, and touch on GWB, Harvey Weinstein, Colin Kaepernick, Putin’s comely fake opponent, John Kelly, and Jerry Brown among others.
