Rod Dreher – On How to Live with Dignity in a Pre-Totalitarian Society

Season 1, Ep. 34

This week on High Noon, Inez Stepman interviews Rod Dreher, senior editor at The American Conservative and author of the book Live Not By Lies: A Manual for Christian Dissidents.


Live Not By Lies is all about preparing yourself — mentally, spiritually, practically — for the possibility of living as a dissident in a hostile and totalitarian society. Each of Dreher’s points is buttressed by his many interviews with people who have “lived it” under communism in Eastern Europe and Russia.


Dreher and Stepman discuss critical lessons for our own pre-totalitarian moment, such as where to draw the line to save your job and your integrity, the importance of preserving cultural memory, and the ways in which our developing technological and private tyrannies, if allowed to continue on their current trajectory, will look different from the tyrannies of the 20th century.

Jillian Kay Melchior – A Report on the War in Ukraine

Season 1, Ep. 64
This week,High Noon with Inez Stepmanchecks in on Russia’s war against Ukraine. It can be easy to forget, considering how many problems the United States faces at home, but the war has now been raging since February, heading into its sixth month. Stepman talks to theWall Street Journal’s Jillian Melchior, who has done three on-the-ground reporting trips to the region since February. Stepman and Melchior spoke about how to sort out live-time digital war propaganda from fact, and how our $40 billion is being spent — or whether it’s getting to the intended target at all. We also spoke about what the war is doing to forge a stronger Ukrainian national identity and Europe’s frustrating inability to go to rehab for its addiction to Russian gas.--High Noonis an intellectual download featuring conversations that make possible a free society.
