A fun listen, if you're up to it.

Mr. Newman is a version of leftwing nasty atheist revisionist history buff. I'd say Aussie redneck, but that would be meaner than rednecks deserve. Newman cheerfully mangles pronunciations, confuses geographical locations, and isn't too concerned about facts. His truth tether just isn't tied at both ends.

However, in all this spiteful confusion, there's a shining thread of poisonous, laugh-out-loud three-sheets-to-the-wind wit that I find rather irresistible. As a bonus, he recommends novels!

Give it a try, unless you're easily offended. If you can't take some--well, a lot--of off-color language and imagery, you might want to give this one a pass.
