Consciousness

I felt your talk about consciousness was much more on point about why we have things like racism, poverty and hate. Talking about the systemic problems in “America” isn’t addressing the real issue. I find just as much racism from immigrants. This is a human problem.

They’re hitting their stride

It took a few episodes but I think Raine and Reza are hitting a rhythm that strikes a balance between humour and insight. It gets better with each episode.
