Great conversations w/some super interesting people

If you value conversation and critical engagement with interesting topics, this is an excellent podcast. Josh has guests of the type you would be familiar with if you listen to Sam Harris, Joe Rogan or Dave Rubin, but doesn't rehash the same old talking points. He's willing to cast a critical eye and steelman the counter-arguments even when he doesn't personally agree with them. Few hosts are this honest.

Now mediocre

Used to enjoy this podcast but now it seems tame and left leaning as opposed to the free debate of ideas.

Day of reckoning Sydney !!!!

Heard about here! Went online - to late to order!
Went there - $550! Me a ‘pensioner’ - ‘....k’!
Guess they are only interested in sharing with people who have lots of money eh, funny I now have much more in common with poor ‘students’ who also are not welcome! My $5 an episode each for you and Sam now just seems ‘dirty’ to me! But I’m just a pensioner so who cares!
