    What About Covid? - A Neighbor's Choice

    Host David Gornoski recaps how the media, hand-in-hand with government, is silencing voices of dissent and dividing the masses. "You can have thousands gathering in protests but you can't have ten people gathering in a church!" David remarks as he highlights the double standards at play. We have to have the courage to say that these 'experts' got it wrong, just like they got nutrition and justice wrong.

The Next National Political Commentator

David Gornoski brings anthropology and a vast knowledge of human history to his assessment of our current political climate. He should be the next National Political commentator as his show holds interest for all political spectrums and ideals. This is my favorite show because of the depth of knowledge and understanding into the human psyche and how to think outside of our natural paradigm to find better solutions to our societal problems.

The voice of non violence

David Gornoski is one of the most insightful voices of social issues in today’s world. He always has great guests in a variety of areas such as economics, science, anthropology, and more. He goes deep in examining human behavior throughout history and how it reflects in our culture today. He preaches an approach that involves non-aggression and peaceful interactions in the market place between free men and woman. He examines the coercive violence of the state, and why that is not a good approach to organize society. I highly recommend this podcast.
