Warnings

Found this podcast after reading Clark’s book Warnings. A
thorough and sometimes frightening look at our possible future if we are not prepared.

Thank you

Where are you? When are you able to resume?

Listening to this podcast has helped me fill in a lot of blanks with regard to government and how it works.

Excellent in-depth discussions on critical issues.

This podcast fills a need that is sorely lacking in the media. It educates, informs, and spotlights critical issues that society needs to think about and address. It isn’t hyperbole, spin, and takes the time to discuss complex, vital issues.

We need more of this type of deep discussion on a range of topics, not more angry, altercation media that creates more division, and crises, rather than solutions. We need to move to solutions.
