Interesting and educational even if you don’t agree
I think this podcast presents a great perspective. I’m a progressive person but I enjoy the conversations going on here; the logical and insightful approach taken on these issues, sometimes which I disagree with by the way, is both respectful and a relevant point of view. If we are to make the world a better place, we should listen to and understand each other.
A thoughtful and informative show. Really enjoy the guests Philip brings on.
