Episode 120: Inconstant Art and a Case for the EU

Good evening, listeners! On this week’s episode host Richard Aldous speaks with John McWhorter about change in contemporary theater before discussing a conservative case for the EU with Dalibor Rohac.

John McWhorter teaches linguistics, philosophy, American Studies and music history at Columbia University, and he joins the program to discuss how even small changes can make it more difficult for people to evaluate art, primarily drawing on two examples of current theatrical productions in New York City (that, believe it or not, are not named Hamilton).

Richard then welcomes back to the show Dalibor Rohac, a research fellow at the American Enterprise Institute and author of Towards an Imperfect Union: A Conservative Case for the EU, to discuss how conservatives in Europe can save the European Union, and why wishing for its demise is a mistake.
