This is a great podcast, and I’m sad to see it end, but the last 280some episodes have been educating and entertaining me on weekly basis. Keep killing it in life. Looking forward to a continuation in the future and an expanded context.
Political I’m out
I listen to learn about exercise and healthy living, and sometimes whiskey. The boys got political and talked BLM and police killings. The police shooting in Kenosha was justified he was an armed felon resisting a lawful arrest. Podcasters that are uninformed should stick to their area of expertise. Virtue signaling doesn’t work. It is harmful to input bad information into a social hot spot. Lazy uninformed is not a good look.
