These guys are great

I love listening to this show. I never miss an episode.

The Necromancer ,

Haven't listened for over a year- just confirmed why.

Some podcasts are bad in a good way, but this isn't one of them.

This is Masonic pretty much only in the sense that the talking heads say they are Masons. However, I don't think they conduct themselves or express the opinions of, real men of the Craft in most contexts. I don't mind bad language or off-color jokes, but I don't think they are joking most of the time, and when they are joking they are not funny.

Their almost unfollowable trains of thought move with such an ADD randomness that you can listen for a multi-hour episode and not comprehend where it began, where it ended, or the seemingly disjointed path they took to get there.

Save yourself the trouble and skip this one.

What exactly are you expecting?

This podcast isn't meant to represent freemasonry. It's a podcast by masons, for masons. It's funny and it can be insightful; what else is a podcast for? If you're looking for honest, academic discussion of freemasonry, there are plenty of audiobooks out there for you.
