Sarcasm and Intellect Punch in the Face
I hope that title came off as a complement, not an insult. These gentlemen tackle some critically important subject matter that mainstream media outlets tend to ignore. Their dark, goofy sense of humor adds a necessary touch of humanity to what could have been a well-intentioned but dull product. The hosts do play devil's advocate from time to time, but could benefit from welcoming guests with counter-points to create more debate. Ted Nugent might be too far, but a respected right-winger or two could create an interesting dialogue, and a little less preaching to the choir. This suggestion is coming from a far-left liberal reviewer.
In order for me to listen to someone speak for more than 4 minutes and 13 seconds, they need to stimulate my intellect, make me laugh, and/or have a funny accent. This podcast may have been tailored specifically for me. Keep 'er up, eh!
Damnit Chris and Derek,
Bring back the podcast!
