The latest BP Podcast is up. You can listen on Libsyn, iTunes and Stitcher. Probably the easiest way to keep up the podcast since we don’t have a regular schedule is to subscribe at one of the links above. You can also support the podcast as a patron (the primary benefit now is that you get the podcasts considerably earlier than everyone else).
We talked about what it’s like to be a “Trump-friendly” intellectual on the Right in the United States, and whether being a Trump-supporter means you are of course a racist.
China seems to be a topic that comes up on this podcast often, and this was no exception. Josiah and I spoke about how we as Americans need to handle new geopolitical realities and their impact on internal politics.
We discussed the future of Republican politics and the decline of a “white Christian America”, and the rise of something new…which we don’t know yet.
Finally, the conversation ended with musings about whether America was heading toward an Idiocracy-like political system. Josiah recommended Helen Andrews’ excellent essay in First Things, Bloodless Moralism.
