Jonah and Manfred Wendt Want to Revive Intellectual Conservatism

On this program, I generally speak to one person as a time. But on this week’s show, I’m chatting with two individuals who I have come to know quite well over the past two years, Jonah (@jonah_wendt) and Manfred Wendt (@wendtmanfred). These twins brothers attend Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas where they helped start the conservative movement on that campus. Despite considerable backlash from students and faculty, they have been successful in bringing powerful conservative voices to campus

On this episode, we talked about their efforts on campus, the decline of intellectual conservatism, and how to break through the noise of our current political environment and guide people towards conservative ideas.
