Food for Thought
John Anderson has put his extensive network to great use in connecting and speaking with people who are learned and articulate. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed listening to these interviews and they have given me much to think about.
A great resource
Wow! Just wow..So many different views so respectfully discussed. I am so grateful that The Honourable John Anderson had put these conversations at our disposal to think about and discuss.
Thank you John, these podcasts are brilliant. I’m a carpenter working away down in Geelong, i’m in my mid forties, these podcasts are reaching people like me who maybe traditionally wouldn’t have been able to hear these ideas. I loved your interview with Albert Mohler too, you should upload this podcast for others, thanks.
