    #191 - Risky Chips & Healthcare Villains

    Not gonna lie: the opening is kind of a mess. After rambling about language barriers, mold, expired food and a plant, TYT project updates, a former Steven Crowder employee comes forward on free speech grounds and Joe Biden's latest healthcare lie brings up the 2016 reporting that Barack Obama had offered to help Joe Biden with expenses related to his son Beau Biden's terminal illnesses and sparks a lot of thoughts about the moral and cosmic abomination that is healthcare in the United States.

    #188 - Going Public With My TYT Documentary — Announcement!

    "Tell The Truth, Cenk" is my two-part documentary about The Young Turks' union-busting and ensuing cover-up. Because I was involved and had a very unique vantage point, plus as an aspiring filmmaker and professional video editor, I decided to correct the record and have spent the last two-and-a-half years working on this in secret. So glad to finally be able to talk about it. It is not yet complete and I am asking for support to continue the project. Please consider helping out.

    #187 - February Update — Beard Loss, Cat Gain & The Mummy President

    Opening chatter about beard loss and cat gain, then working out the lefty position on voting for Biden and why it's upsetting no matter what, then Jon Stewart returns to the Daily Show and upsets the liberal cart by turning the haunted house lights on regarding Joe Biden desiccated sclerotic corpse.

Thank you Mr. Hank, Thank you

Before I listen to Mr. Hank’s podcast I had no job, no friends, and no love life. Now I listen to Mr. Hank’s podcast.

good stuff

i listen to a lot of podcasts and this was easy to like upon first listen. Hanks' got a good voice for podcasting, the conversations are very natural sounding and compelling to listen to. There are usually some very funny moments that seem to pop up organically and do not sound forced. Highly recommended.

Great Person

Hank seems to be a great person- funny, thoughtful and honest. Thoroughly delightful way to spend some time.
