This one. Listen to this one.

This is just a fantastic, well-produced podcast that allows you to laugh off the darkest, most difficult subjects imaginable … turns out that at least three of the horsemen are also stand up comics. Just subscribe and put this in your weekly mix. You’ll end up smarter, better prepared and, surprisingly, more sane. You’ll see!

Great Podcast

I love the way Asher, Jason, and Rob talk about the real problems in the world and how people will consistently deny the effects and undeniable result of our society. We need more of this!!

Great walk between delusion and denial

I have enjoyed this podcast from its first year—the hosts are knowledgeable and possess a great dynamic. Most importantly they help identify the various “delusions and denials” that surround most discussions of resource constraints and modern society’s energy predicament; moreover they do this ample sympathy and no judgmental finger wagging.
