@Antho ,

Fantastic

Ok so at first I thought it would be too long and too slow...
...but actually it enables to really have thought through answers from super interesting hosts, something you will not have in traditional interviews.

The podcast is actually more of a discussion, a debate between friends, rather than an interview. And it can be funny !

My #1 podcast (JRE is now #2... Oops)!

Really interesting and entertaining.

I listen everytime I take the car or while running.
Thanks Lex ;-D

Oliver Stone episode is such a junk

This is a review of the Oliver Stone episode and my way of dealing with it’s content because just I couldn’t finish it and bear with what that person is saying without Lex challenging any of that nonsense. He might be a great director but he seems to be detached from reality, very confused with facts and being a victim of his own confirmation biases (and this is a very mild assessment). I have a huge respect for Lex for his work and for the way he treats other human beings. I can see his effort to make the World a better place through more listening and empathy as well as I understand his way of seeking freedom of speech but it has a flip side to it to make it work: good people (like Lex) has to stand up and confront those dangerous misinterpretations of facts instead of just providing a publicity to them without challenging it. There is a huge responsibility that comes with your position, Lex. What Russia is doing is unforgivable act of violence against humanity and against people of Ukraine and it should always be labeled as this - as war. Lex, I hope you will read this as this is not a situation where one should seek shades of grey. Let me do this for you. Invading another country is black. Killing innocent civilians is black. Killing children and separating them from their families is black. Raping is black. Trying to find excuses for what Russia is doing is black. Not condemning the aggression is black. Defending your home country against the aggressor is white. Helping someone to defend against unprovoked aggression is white. Calling out the aggressor is white. It was a hurting experience to watch the beautiful and emphatic person like you, Lex, not standing for what is right here. Although it was very revealing about Oliver Stone.

Great podcats unless the topic covers Russia

Ok Lex is a Putin’s useful idiot. You gotta choose side Lex and honestly you said it your self, Russians don't even take you a Russian…
