So important

Understanding the history of current social issues could not be more important, especially given the culture of today’s society. This podcast is of vital importance. I frequently find myself quoting ideas from it. Thank you, Rund and Ramtin and all of the researchers for the thorough research that goes into each fascinating episode.
