excellent

the balanced perspective we need to understand our world

Panbozz ,

Essential Content.

Kraus’ towering intellect and curiosity more than make up for his arrogance and super abundant awkwardness.

He’s brings great minds and contributors to the table and has the heft and power to engage them fully and energetically.

Essential content.

Steve Vand ,

Yeah

Great show, suggest eliminating the “yeah yeah yeah yeah.” Love the show.
