On this episode of the First Things Podcast: Senior editor Mark Bauerlein talks with associate editor Julia Yost about Donald Trump’s first week in office, from the inauguration speech to the Women’s Marches to the March for Life. Then, Julia conjures the spirit of the William Peter Blatty, who died earlier this month, and discusses The Exorcist—that very Catholic work of horror, for which he authored both novel and screenplay.
