Informative, intelligent & relevant 👍👍

One of the best podcasts imo. Chris is a super conversationalist and he has some brilliant guests 👍😎

Eric Jones 79 ,

Dishonest

Daniel Cox explained to the host that young women are becoming more liberal but young men haven’t changed much ideologically, and they call the episode “Why Are Young Men Becoming More Right Wing?” The host insists on skewing what he’s being told to fit this narrative. Why? What is his agenda? Has he been listening to his woke critics and capitulated, and was that the plan all along, or is he just a leaf in the wind? Very fishy, do it trust him.

Marc W Powell ,

Poor man’s Tim Ferris

Shame Chris has had to go down the culture war right wing conspiratorial route, the bro science and cringeworthy Alex Hormoxi episodes were bad enough!
There’s only one Tim Ferriss and Chris has proved that hes unable to emulate him!
Just click bait nonsense now! However, I would love to see Tim on the show, See how Chris fairs against the OG!
