Rational, measured, and eloquent

You can’t listen to Mr. Hughes and *not* feel an overwhelming sense of hope. The conversations he leads are entirely rational in an era that is not, inspirational in a media landscape that under-emphasizes the good, and eloquent/measured in a moment when the majority too often shout on impulse. An excellent listen.

Refreshingly Intellectual content

Coleman’s voice is great, and the podcast environment is as great for him as his written word is.
