Change your day!

You can listen to any episode and be entertained! Adam talks to great people making a difference in the world. His exposure of the hypocrisy in religion is incredible. Ray gate is priceless!

Long time listener, first time reviewer

Adam tweeted me during the first few weeks of his program and said "everyone has something to add". Since then, he's proven his philosophy with interviews of disparate people from all over the globe. Often funny, routinely poignant, sometimes heart-wrenching, The Herd Mentality has been at the top of my listening list for years now. It's like having a friend from Australia… that you've never met.
