You can own a tank in the US

But the part that that shoots needs to be completely disabled. Also this civil war episode is so one sided it’s insane. Union soldiers also raped and lynched. Abe Lincoln was a politician not a saint. First he wanted to ship all blacks to Liberia hence the flag 🇱🇷. He also forced the blacks to fight for him he even killed 250 ppl in ny because they didn’t want to fight. Uzis aren’t even big guns “uzis and tanks”. And we need guns to fight against the government or at least be a real threat. Everything has two sides which is why I like your podcast. This episode specifically is too one sided.

Too Long, Unwieldy Podcast

Great subject matters. Excellent guests. And a likable host.

But the podcasts are far too long to enjoy. Even on a road trip, you’ll likely get to your destination before the podcast ends. In all other contexts, you’re probably only going to listen to about a quarter of the podcast - and much of it will feel like fluff.

Some better prepping and more planned questions in advance might help shorten the format. I’m reminded by the old saying “I wrote you a long letter because I didn’t have the time to write you a short one.”

Thank you

Lex is absolutely delightful and his podcast is excellent.
