Word of South

Jonah Goldberg

Jonah Goldberg is a Senior Fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, where he holds the Asness Chair in Applied Liberty. In 2019 he left National Review magazine after a 21-year stint to cofound The Dispatch, where he is Editor-in-Chief. He has been a weekly columnist for the Los Angeles Times since 2005 and a nationally syndicated columnist since 2000. He hosts the popular podcast The Remnant with Jonah Goldberg.

His syndicated column appears regularly in many of America’s leading newspapers. His first book, Liberal Fascism, was a #1 New York Times and Amazon bestseller and was selected as the #1 history book of 2008 by Amazon readers. His second book, The Tyranny of Clichés, was also an instant bestseller and hailed as perhaps “the best and most fun-to-read primer on the tenets of conservative politics since P. J. O’Rourke’s Parliament of Whores.” He’ll be appearing at Word of South as part of The Road to Now Podcast with history professor Ben Sawyer and Bob Crawford of The Avett Brothers.
