Brilliant, as always.

The hilarious and astute Mike Murphy is a classic guest. But, right out of the gate with Ne-VAH-da. He knows better. Pass along.

Great listening

Thanks for the conversation. Very informative! Despite all your insights, I think you are naive about hoping/dreaming that government people will come out and say the emperor has no clothes. So many people have expected this to happen over past 4-5 years and it has never happened. And it will not happen.

Kristol Clear Conversation Compelling Your Mind To Contemplate!

These conversations add value to and cut through the smog of ignorance so often associated with so-called conservative talk radio and TV. Our minds are ossified by the blather and irrationality that passes for informed dialogue. Thank goodness for “Conversations With Kristol”!

Mumbles

This is a fantastic podcast both for substance and relevance but both the interviewer and the interviewee talk very fast and enunciate poorly. Listening takes a lot of concentration which diminishes the experience. This is a criticism of the podcast generally and this one in particular. I’m sure that if I were watching instead of just listening it would be easier.

Great substance, hard to hear Bill

The content is worthwhile. Bill is a great conversationalist. But in a show that is called “Conversations” it would be nice to be able to hear one half of the conversation. Bill often mumbles and speaks quietly so it’s hard to hear. Please mic him to resolve this, so that both parties come across at the approximately the same decibel level on the recording. Otherwise great show.

Politics ad entertainment

Quite natural so long as you don’t have a negative reaction to the word, entertainment. Politics can be fascinating. As can quantum physics.

What’s with all the complaining

I listened to the interview with Steve Hayes. It seemed like a lot of complaining about both sides (Republicans and Democrats). There were no solutions to our current state. I was a Republican for my whole life. The Tea Party made me into a Democrat. The unwillingness to change any position in a changing world. Going to the Dr and the hospital is a luxury based on the cost. It’s less expensive for a small business owner to make a capital purchase (which can be financed)than to purchase health insurance or to get sick. It forces young entrepreneurs to go work for a corporation than start their own business. This has to change for a country to not become stale. Something has change and the Republicans are unwilling to do anything about health care. IT IS TOO EXPENSIVE! Also, why is the Republican Party so Male and White. Doesn’t that say something about a defect in the underlying policies and unwillingness to change. Stop complaining about the President the REPUBLICANS elected and make some change. I really like Bill Kristol but please start talking about changing ANYTHING. We aren’t in the 1950s anymore.

Conversation w/Jim VaderHei

A thought provoking conversation; however, the thought of politics as entertainment (and all that that entails) was very troubling and no mention of the impact or importance of morals and values. I agree that the coverage of politics has overtaken news programs and that unfortunately many see (and treat) the current presidency as a reality TV program (which is very disheartening on its own and a topic and another conversation). I appreciated the insight into technology and social media by Jim and the more broad impact of surrounding sectors and views of different generations. I look forward to more conversations, thank you.

Please stop using this as an expression. Just as a person who was alive and old enough to understand what was happening, I find the casual reference to the horrible decision those heroic people had to make to be deeply disturbing every time I hear you use it. Please don’t contribute to it becoming common.

Tocqueville on Democracy in America

I found this talk by Harvey Mansfield absolutely enlightening and helpful in understanding how our democracy depends on the people using their ruling power the right way. I loved the way Mansfield captured the essence of Tocqueville combination of aristocracy living within a democracy.I never realized the importance of Associations keeping our democracy healthy both for those people elect to represent them as well as keeping the rule of people on the right path.The example of using the building of a road in the middle of the forest to illustrate how our government and its hierarchy was built out of something that one individual could not do alone. The illustration of a moral compass by women accepting the marriage bond for survival was very thought- provoking .I could go on and on, but will close by thanking Bill Kristol for making these talks available and free for those like me that crave to be informed but could never afford to pay for this information .Everyone who finds our current political scene worrisome needs to go to Billykristol. Com. Thank you Harvey Mansfield for sharing your expertise and for Bill Kristol for making it possible.Cordially,Mary Healey

Torch Bearer for Political Philosophy

Whatever one's political views, this podcast is essential for serving as a torch bearer for the serious study of political philosophy in the United States and around the world. Harvey Mansfield is a national treasure, and the many Conversations with him are a gift to future generations. One hopes that the Conversations with him (as well as with Paul Cantor, James Ceaser, and others) will stimulate talented young people to study of the great books, without which our civilization is unlikely to last very much longer.
