The American Mind Podcast: The Roundtable Episode #24

With the coronavirus surging again, Daddy Newsom rises to the fore as Karen-in-Chief--shutting down businesses across California, closing beaches, and banning fireworks just in time for the 4th. Meanwhile, CHAZ/CHOP is no more, scuppered after CHOP’s armed private security executed a young man.

The American Mind Podcast: The Roundtable Episode #23

BLM and the left continue to go unchecked, Big Tech weaponizes deregistration without oversight, and our military leaders issue renegade statements that don’t bode well, to say the least. Our editors discuss the American culture’s latest forbidden heresy and Ryan pays tribute to the great Michael Uhlmann, who singlehandedly saved the electoral college.
