Professional and Well produced
Instant fan. Listened to Dr Friedman episode. I’m a CRE broker and can’t wait to dive in to 200+ more episodes. Well done.
Episode 246 maybe the most ridiculous topic I’ve ever heard discussed on a podcast
The Marxist socialist you were talking to (not using his name) who said he had 3 degrees from major colleges was still lamenting because nobody taught the poor baby about Marxism (that’s a lie I'm sure) he went on about how calm and understanding Marxism is and how we should all study it - That is the calm voice you hear wispering in your ear just before he puts a knife in your back.
historically Marxism is a miserable failure and you have this moron come on and tell us how great it is and how we should all study Marxism is a slap in the face of America and what is fundamentally wrong with our colleges today
This communist doesn’t want us to study Marxism he wants to flip America to Marxism and all the terrible things that come with it like how well it worked in Cuba look how well it’s working in Venezuela.
Shame on you for allowing this idiot spew this poison on your podcast
It’s unfortunate that individuals like yourself think that #BlackLivesMatter is an all live matter conversation. Compare the statistics of white lives that have been taken away by police and blacks lives taken away by police. You lost a subscriber.
