The Best

Stephen is a likeable and intelligent host. Fabulous guests. Scotsman abroad throws in hilariously vulgar but apt one-liners!

Absolutist

Stephen is heading steadily towards an eco chamber is rejects constructive criticism without consideration. He is in danger of becoming an extremist in the positions that he defends in the current social climate. There is not much need for any more extremist absolutists in at this time. We have enough. Stephen used to be a voice of reason, but perhaps he is too far gone now?

It takes very careful skill to maintain a rational and objective mind. Stephen is heading away from that to somewhere of very little value, and the merit of his commentary follows.

Top class👍👍👍

Great podcast. Always interesting and great guests. I found my new saying here. Religion. At its worst is destructive and at best is pointless.
