Low Value Male

Heard Recluse on Danny Polishchuk's podcast and it led me here. Great stuff.

Amazing

I might give him 4 stars for the somewhat imbalanced audio in SOME episodes. I can see other aspects about the show that some people don’t like but the episodes are so packed and factual parapolitics that I can’t say anything but 5 stars.
Great information, deep noided topics
