Episode 83: The Hitchhikers Guide to a Misguided Country
We discuss new information that has come to light from the Capitol insurrection last week. Why were some of these 'protestors' given a tour of the capitol the day before by sitting members of congress? There was a Social Media glow from all of this that did not highlight the the more violent notions of the attack on the seat of democracy. Should those who pushed for the doubting of the election be held accountable? With five days until the inauguration, what chaos can be stirred up 45th president, as he drifts beyond the point of his presidency? Madison Cawthorn represents our home region of Western North Carolina - but also sells 'Cry More Lib' T-shirts on his website, and was armed in the Capitol on the day of the insurrection. We discuss how the vaccine is rolled out slower than expected and some states are encouraging "vaccination-tourism" to help their economy while at the same time denying access to their residents. We also talk about how poorer countries, who were a part of the vaccine research and studies, have received no vaccine doses. 2021 is off to a blistering start, and there's a lot to unpack.RECORDED LIVE FROM THE RESET WOLF DEN

I agreed with a few of the topics and perspectives discussed on this podcast but it is a resounding eco chamber. Very much needs a centrist viewpoint.
One of the hardest left wing stance podcast I’ve listened to. If your into that this one is for you but I choose to listen to a more balanced approach.
