The best

Honestly, this is one of the best shows I’ve ever listened to. I usually listen to it on WFMU and am blown away by the raw reality, truth and overall informative nature of this podcast. Mark is a phenomenal host and interviewer and you can tell he is extremely intelligent in the best way possible. Two Thumbs up!!!
