Podcast for the People

This is not your typical podcast, which is somewhat refreshing. These four come to talk about their opinions on certain issues and try to navigate their stances on such, yet dive deeper than many others attempt to. They aren’t necessarily experts on what they discuss, but it seems they do their best to come educated with relevant and current knowledge on the subjects. Though I don’t always agree with everything they say, their conversations elicit deeper thought and keep it entertaining.

Keep up the good work!
