The guy host…

Why does he yell throughout the podcast? It would be better if he talked a bit quieter.

One of my faves

One of my favorite podcasts out there using critical thinking to break down some of todays most interesting topics. Chris is a lovely human who takes the time to interact with anyone who is interested in any of these topics - I started as a fan and I’m lucky to call him a friend.
