Fantastic

Always well done.
Moderated, intelligent, civil debate between experts in each field, about interesting and timely topics.
Thought provoking, informative, and a model for discussion and civil disagreement that we can all benefit from.
Sincere thanks.

more important & controversial topics please

This program is awesome in so many ways. I particularly love conversations about tough issues without the word “racist” being thrown to the other side.
Update: this is the best podcast ever, hope you guys could choose more bold topics like before, do not cave to political correctness! Thanks for the great work.

Well done

Worried this might go down the “Crossfire rabbit-hole” that Jon Stewart so famously destroyed with his single appearance on the show back in the 2000. However, I’ve listened to two episodes so far and this show sticks to debate principles that isn’t just the “debate for the shake of debate” sideshow we see on cable news every night.
