Shattered Arcadia ,

Great pod with one flawed assumption.

Jake and Angel are great - except for the defense of capitalism and the deflection to crony capitalism. In any capitalist system it will always devolve to crony capitalism and corporatism on short order - and the critique of the naïveté of socialists is misplaced.

Love you!

Excellent Podcast

I stumbled across this podcast by accident - I was searching for fellow American cynics.

This is a great show. Give it a listen.

Pdffed off ,

Whiny

literally acoustically whiny and also philosophically whiny, not a cynic, rather an “individualist” with opinions about people other than him. no humility! no insight to the bigger picture! a real cynic is going to take himself to task before he puts together a public platform, so go back to the streets, dude!
