The Commentary Magazine Podcast

  • What College Presidents Have Learned

    24 MAG 2024 · The House grilled a new round of university presidents who seemed to have benefited from a kind of human machine learning. They avoided some previous mistakes but continued to bring shame on their institutions all the same. And Donald Trump was up to something very interesting in the Bronx. Plus a new AI song from Eli Lake. Give a listen.
    59 min. 57 sec.
  • The Psalm of Rafah

    23 MAG 2024 · Today's podcast takes up the text of Psalm 94, which is a stunning evocation of the moment facing Israel right now and the threat to its enemies—not from Israel itself but from the God of Israel. Give a listen.
    1 h 17 min. 31 sec.
  • The Defense Rests

    22 MAG 2024 · Has Donald Trump's hush-money trial hurt him yet? While in court, he expanded his lead across the electoral map. But why aren't Trump's imitators enjoying the same good fortune? Meanwhile, the Biden bloopers pile up daily. And why hasn't any aid dropped at the American-built pier reached Gazans? Give a listen. 
    58 min.
  • Condolences for Evil

    21 MAG 2024 · Why did American institutions express sorrow at the passing of Iran's monstrous president? Why does anyone pay attention to the International Criminal Court? Why is an awful academic named Dov Waxman running a Jewish studies program at UCLA? Why did Biden say he was vice president during COVID? Why did the judge in the Trump case get all hysterical about a case of "side eye"? Give a listen.
    1 h 18 min. 52 sec.
  • The Iran Helicopter Crash

    20 MAG 2024 · Has history been altered by the helicopter crash that has apparently killed the president and foreign minister of Iran? Will Israel be blamed? Did Israel do it? Won't Israel be blamed even if it didn't do it? And what blame attaches to American policy for Israel's increasingly parlous political and military confusion? Give a listen.
    1 h 25 sec.
  • When the Fixer Breaks

    17 MAG 2024 · Today Eli Lake joins the podcast to discuss Michael Cohen's terrible day in court and the liberal panic over the direction of Donald Trump's criminal trial. And how much power, if any, do school administrators have to meet the demands of pro-Hamas protesters. Plus the debut of a weekly musical feature! Give a listen.
    53 min. 20 sec.
  • Debate: Advantage Who?

    16 MAG 2024 · We split on who has the upper hand in the coming debates, but all agree there are risks and rewards and that the race could use a little shaking up. Less shook up, it appears, is American public opinion when it comes to Israel and the Palestinians, which remains firmly in the latter's camp. And the COVID reckoning is speeding up. Give a listen.
    1 h 4 min. 29 sec.
  • Wow, Actual Trump-Biden Debates?

    15 MAG 2024 · The offer this morning from Joe Biden to debate Donald Trump twice, in June and September, was semi-accepted by Trump a few minutes after it was proposed, so the game might be afoot. Why does Biden want this? What could it mean? And what do the very interesting primary results last night suggest about the state of the Republican party in particular? Give a listen.
    1 h 12 min. 35 sec.
  • Trump's Trial and the Woke Jihad

    14 MAG 2024 · Is the Trump trial about crimes he supposedly committed or just simply a litany of ways in which the former and maybe future president just seems to be a rotten guy? And what are we to make of the new connections between American wokesters and actual Middle East jihadists who want the mass murder of the Jews? Give a listen.
    1 h 11 min. 24 sec.
  • For Joe, It's Worse Than That

    13 MAG 2024 · A new New York Times poll not only has terrible news for Joe Biden, it reveals how wrong-headed his electoral concerns are when it comes to Israel and Palestine. Also, we end the show with an AI-generated song about COMMENTARY from our own Eli Lake. Give a listen!
    1 h 5 min. 6 sec.
Commentary is America's premier monthly magazine of opinion: General, yet Jewish. Highly variegated, with a unifying perspective.
