A podcast discussing, religion, politics, sexuality...from a liberal, ex-muslim perspective.

    Remembering Michael Brooks

    Remembering Michael Brooks

    I've been at a loss for words....so devastated and shocked by this sudden, tragic loss. I just spoke to him for my previous episode...I can't believe we won't hear another MB laugh again.

    It has been an honour to have laughed with him.

    I wanted to say a few words and share some of my favourite clips of Michael on Polite Conversations.

    RIP, friend.

Magnifique

Great podcast! Maybe the best left/progressive pod’s that covers the IDW-to-Far Right/Neo-Fascist connections that the former always denies, (unconvincingly).
