Very intelligent conversations!

This show covers extremely important topics in a very thought provoking way. Every conscious human being should be aware of these topics and this podcast is a great resource. Thank you for this.

Refreshingly Alarming

This podcast, along with The Great Hack on Netflix, have provided so much context and background on the engineered propaganda that we are being targeted with daily whether we know it or not. Are in the middle of an information battlefield that after years skews our understanding of facts and allows us to refute basic truths? Why is our tolerance to falsehoods so high? How do we avert further contamination of truth and restore the order of factuality.

Needless to say, I’m looking forward to more episodes! Thank you.

A vital shift in perspective

This type of information needs to be disseminated more widely. I’ve recently realized just how bad my digital habits have become, as well as how my beliefs have changed (for the worse) as a consequence of the outlets I use to consume various kinds of media. However, I’ve only had a vague understanding of WHY I’ve experienced these changes. This podcast is helping me begin to see and understand the infrastructure within which these habits have developed. This is important work.
