Intelligent, objective discussions

I am a huge fan of this podcast. It’s so refreshing to hear balanced, objective, rational discussions. It’s something which the whole world needs more of. Thank you for having the courage to ask the tough questions. The more society shies away from having these types of open conversations, the more profound our societal problems will become.

Love this show

This show is always interesting, and a model of civil, intelligent and informed discourse. It’s too bad that is such a rare quality these days. Love both Glenn and frequent contributor John McW.

Necessary conversations

Love the Glenn show, especially when John McW is the guest. They tell it as it is, in an articulate manner and say what needs to be said. I enjoy their obvious rapport and friendship. They are heroes for speaking out, and seem like decent guys. Thank you.
