This podcast, especially the recent series "The Spirit of Market Anarchy"---this podcast is logical in a way that most atheist podcasts aren't. It isn't political, but it gets to the root of the social religion of the Left in a way that most thinkers aren't able to do so.
Keep up the great work!
The veil has been lifted.
A very enlightening podcast. It's amazing that the only source that i am learning the truth about this political season is here. Please continue to put out quality content for us. People need to hear this stuff.
This podcast can tear apart what one would think is a logical argument and explain it in a new and refreshing light. There is not anything that is not thought out and dictated to this audience. I especially enjoyed the latest installment about the media bias in this election. Keep up the amazing work!
