Great show!

Great liberty minded podcast! Brad and Hannah have great, real discussions about current events.

Evan Stevoid ,

Julian Assange

If I recall correctly was charged with rape which was later found to be a lie perpetrated by the regime.

We know that inconvenient people who gain too much support and fail to tow the narrative are commonly falsely accused by the regime.

Not saying that Andrew Tate is innocent, one wonders when it is so convenient for the regime and their narrative.

Entertaining

I come in and out of listening to the show, but am always glad when I do. Brad and Hannah give a solid liberty-minded perspective to current events while being entertaining the entire time.
