Excellent podcast, always insightful.
Every episode is interesting, never a clunker.
Keep up the great work!
I very much enjoy the intellectual depth of the contributors and the factual perspectives that so many times are needed to counter the unhinged attacks on our rule based society and history by the Left.
Disappointed as well
Thought this podcast looked very interesting but it is incredibly biased and white privilege shines through
