    Gettysburg - What An Unbelievable Battle!

    Gettysburg - What An Unbelievable Battle!

    A patriotic march based on the words of Donald Trump at a recent Pennsylvania campaign event.

    "Gettysburg, what an unbelievable battle that was. It was so much, and so interesting, and so vicious and horrible, and so beautiful in so many different ways--it represented such a big portion of the success of this country. Gettysburg, wow--I go to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, to look and to watch. And the statement of Robert E. Lee, who's no longer in favor--did you ever notice it? He's no longer in favor. 'Never fight uphill, me boys, never fight uphill.' They were fighting uphill, he said, 'Wow, that was a big mistake,' he lost his great general. 'Never fight uphill, me boys,' but it was too late."

Erin Parsley ,

I love this and I don’t like political podcasts.

Beowulf leads his intelligent and thoughtful guests through honest and insightful conversations. I’m surprised how taken in I am by these episodes, when I normally don’t even listen to political media! A refreshing take!

Lost Listener

Once one of my weekly roster go-tos, I’m abandoning FacePalm America after a number of Beowulf's guests continue to spout Zionist propaganda without ANY pushback from the host, particularly John Rothman. This is insidious and intellectually dishonest to platform talking heads who deny reality and distort the truth. Neoliberalism kills. This isn’t a podcast for true “progressives” or anyone who cares about journalistic integrity. Next.

Realistic but hopeful

Thank you for another great interview. And for bringing very important, often overlooked topics to us with humor and intelligence. And thank you for doing so with kindness.
