Cornel’s academic career is long and storied, having taught religion, philosophy, and African-American studies at Yale, Princeton, Harvard, and Union Theological Seminary, where he recently returned. He has written or contributed to more than 20 books, including "Race Matters" and "Democracy Matters" — but he recommends you start with Chekhov. I met Cornel decades ago, when I interviewed him at Union Theological Seminary for a TNR piece I was writing on divinity schools. He has long fascinated me, and "Race Matters" had a real impact on me decades ago. Erudite, passionate, and deeply humane, he is an unapologetically leftist Christian, who is also a champion of free speech, civility and the classics. In other words: a rare and beautiful man.

    John McWhorter On Woke Racism

    1:22:04

    For anyone who follows online debates over race in America, John needs little introduction. The Columbia linguist just wrote a bracing tract, Woke Racism, against the new elite religion. He, like me, despises the racism inherent in critical race theory and its various off-shoots, and let’s just say we talked very freely about many of the dynamics of our time.

    Woodward & Costa On The Peril Of Trump

    In the year or so that I’ve been podcasting, this may be the most significant conversation I’ve recorded. It’s a civil, careful examination of the core political question we face today: how can we save liberal democracy from becoming tyranny? The skill with which Bob Woodward and now Robert Costa have put together a chronology of the Trump administration should remind us of how truly grave the threat was — and is. No hyperbole here; just brutal realism and a refusal to deny what is staring us in the face.  Get full access to The Weekly Dish at andrewsullivan.substack.com/subscribe

    Briahna Joy Gray On Race And Class

    A lawyer and political consultant who served as press secretary for Bernie Sanders, Briahna co-hosts the superb podcast Bad Faith. I start our enjoyable convo with a simple question: how can we best facilitate the flourishing of black America? I’m trying to reach out and engage more people I have disagreements with, to see where we might have common ground. I’m immensely grateful to Briahna for coming on.

    Antonio G. Martínez On Christianity And The Woke Religion

    Antonio is quite the Renaissance man: child of Cuban exiles, journalist, PhD student in physics, Wall Street ace, entrepreneur, Facebook ad pioneer, and Silicon Valley apostate. His NYT bestselling memoir "Chaos Monkeys" got rave reviews until five years later it got him fired from Apple a few weeks into his job because of a woke revolt. Now he has a brilliant substack, "The Pull Request." In this episode we dive deep into our Catholic backgrounds, Antonio’s break toward Judaism, and the new Woke religion.

    Ross Douthat On Lyme, Chronic Pain, Faith

    Ross is a dear old colleague whose newest book, The Deep Places, is a memoir about his long fight against Lyme disease. In this episode we talk about the world of sickness, which we both know something about, and we debate our differing views of Pope Francis and our different levels of panic over Trump and CRT.

    Michael Wolff On The Trump Threat

    Michael — a longtime media critic, and now with "Landslide" the author of three Trump tell-all books — talks with me about the 45th president. How politically dangerous is he still? How delusional and mentally unbalanced? Will he run again? We get into it.  Get full access to The Weekly Dish at andrewsullivan.substack.com/subscribe

    Andrew Sullivan On His Early Influences (Part Two)

    49:46

    While Andrew and I wrap up our annual two-week vacation in August, here is the second half of the very personal interview he once did with journalist and friend Johann Hari (who wrote the bestselling books "Chasing the Scream: The First and Last Days of the War on Drugs" and "Lost Connections: Why You’re Depressed and How to Find Hope"). The idea to re-air the 2012 conversation came from two Dish readers, one of whom saved the audio files. This second half of the conversation focuses on God and the AIDS crisis. I vividly remember listening to it almost a decade ago, because it was one of the most riveting and revealing conversations I’ve ever heard from Andrew, publicly or privately. Johann has that effect.

    Andrew Sullivan On His Early Influences (Part One)

    1:21:56

    This fortnight, while Andrew and I are on our annual Dishcation in August, we are airing a two-part interview of Andrew from 2012, conducted by the journalist Johann Hari (author of the bestselling books "Chasing the Scream: The First and Last Days of the War on Drugs" and "Lost Connections: Why You’re Depressed and How to Find Hope"). The interview delves into Andrew's early life in England with a working-class Irish-Catholic family, becoming the first to go to college, then arriving in America at Harvard, coming out as gay, discovering his philosophical guiding light, Michael Oakeshott, and much more. I vividly remember listening to this interview, almost a decade ago, because it was one of the most revealing conversations I’ve ever heard of Andrew (and I’ve known him a long time). Johann has a real knack for allowing people to reveal themselves. Get full access to The Weekly Dish at andrewsullivan.substack.com/subscribe

    Michael Moynihan On Afghanistan And Free Speech

    Moynihan is one-third of the The Fifth Column — the sharp, hilarious podcast he does with Kmele Foster and Matt Welch — and he’s a long-time correspondent for Vice. In this episode we mostly cover the cascading news out of Afghanistan, but also bounce around to topics like old media, woke media, neocons and Israel, Big Tech, and third rails. We also reminisce a little about our mutual friend, the late Christopher Hitchens. For three clips of my conversation with Moynihan — on our shared bewilderment over anti-vaxxers, on the need for intellectual humility and occasionally eating crow, and on gay men having a very different culture of consent and flirting — head over to our YouTube page.
