So many insightful and important conversations

I loved the Free Will is a Lie episode. So many aspects of that conversation I have believed intrinsically for years but this episode gave the words to express that belief. And such a different perspective than our part of the world believes.

Kerri Kelly

Got a lot of things correct but she was on the wrong side of history when it came to the plandemic she seems like a good person who wants to do good but when it comes to all medical protocols she blindly accepts the biggest corporations while complaining about all the others some day she will see the light.
