Amazing depth on incredibly broad topics.

Wow. Colin Wright is becoming perhaps the smartest human alive, while unpacking a wide array of complex issues. His analysis and descriptions help listeners understand these subjects in a way that’s simply not available anywhere else. He’s covered topics in my wheelhouse, and on those I’m amazed by his understanding.

Helping You Dip a Toe in Various Complexities of the World

If asked whether I agree with Colin and his various opinions on a large array of topics like politics, spirituality, philosophy, human nature, etc, the answer would be “sometimes”. Fortunately, none of that matters in this podcast. Insofar as I have listened and interpreted, LKT serves as an unbiased and non-partisan look at the facts from various angles. Furthermore, the articles are investigated and presented in such a way as to help you understand what some of the potential implications may be. If you like to learn, not be taught, this is a great option for you. Thank you, Colin.
