You might have been following the new Via Meadia series of essays at Tablet by the historian, pundit, and popular author Walter Russell Mead. And if so, you already know that Mead is encyclopedic about politics, culture, and history: from immigration policy to religion, literature to finance and technology, housing and education to foreign policy and folk music, Mead can dish on anything.
What you might not know yet is that he is also one of the most entertaining conversationalists you’ve ever met. On our new podcast, What Really Matters, brought to you by Tablet Magazine and Hudson Institute, Mead and Tablet Deputy Editor Jeremy Stern help you understand the news, decide what news matters and what doesn’t, and enjoy following the story of America and the world more than you do now.
If you’re a history buff, a news junkie, or simply looking for a fun, engaging way to make yourself smarter, What Really Matters is the podcast for you. Subscribe wherever you get your podcasts.
