Solid Podcast

I love the combination of in depth history lessons and a libertarian take on current events. Matt and Nick are great, and I feel a little smarter after every episode. I’ve checked out a lot of libertarian podcasts, and this is definitely one of my favorites.

Um, wow.

All Matt does is drone on and on about “rights” and “constitution and stuff. If that’s your thing you might enjoy these guys. I wish they would release an edit with Matt’s nonsense taken out and only Nick talking. Not only would that enable me to listen to the show faster but Nick is the real star of the show. I bet he not only writes Matt’s script but also produces the show and even points out what line of the script Matt is supposed to read next. You might notice that Nick is not on some of the episodes because he’s “not available”. Actually, those are the episodes where he has to move Matt’s mouth for him. Matt says that he was in the army but I’m pretty sure they send all the retards to the marines. Anyway, if you’ve read through this whole review, you probably have the patience to listen to the show. Just make sure you play it at max speed. Saves time and makes it harder to hear Matt. Reeeeeeeeee.

Salt Upon Wounds ,

Killin’ the Game.

Every young American needs to be tuning in to this. Pause JRE for a couple days and start learning. The Burn Pits ep. is something every single American needs to hear. If that doesn’t help you understand that the state doesn’t care about you or it’s employees then I don’t what will.
