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

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).
Thanks eiynah for being a principled ex Muslim
Honest and well thought out discussions.
