Great Australian Treasure

Dear John

Fantastic podcast, a rare ray of light from an Australian point of view. There are great US podcasts that champion the conservative perspective but sadly little in Australia. This is important work and I share many with my friends - well done.

Sounds moderate, but on reflection, see,s very hardline and intolerant.

I have listened to 8-10 eps in recent months. I am very disappointed to find that an advocate for so called traditional values of liberty and freedom actually resorts to slogans (eg woke = evil) and appears to only want to talk to very partisan voices to decry the contemporary decay of society. How about reflecting on the flaws of the era of the ‘white picket fence’ and trying to address some of the deficiencies and inequities of that era that was so comfortable for some of us.

Destruction in the US Political Situation

Hello John. So appreciate your podcasts and the special effort you make to inform us about the many issues that cris-cross our lives today,particularly with your respectful Biblical worldview overlaid in the discussion framework. While the outcomes often appear horrendous ss say the current US situation or the potential for nuclear exchange in Europe with the Russian invasion of Ukraine, there is always hope that the Christian message will bring peace to many
