Smart and balanced

I’ll never understand the negative reviews on podcasts like this one, especially when it’s named “The Uncomfortable Truth”. It’s clearly not intended to satisfy every personality or belief system - but it is hard to argue the logic and truth spoken in the episodes. I for one appreciate the honesty and wisdom. For the easily offended, I’d recommend finding a podcast without the word “Uncomfortable” in the title.

horrible

This guy is completely self-absorbed. I actually ordered his book on Amazon, and read he had a podcast. So I thought it would be nice to hear him while I wait for the book to be fulfilled. I listed to 3 episodes to give him a chance, and he is terrible. I canceled my order before it shipped.
