Thank you to Glenn, John M., and some of the other contributors for thrilling my mind and broadening my understanding. Listening to the ongoing conversation between Glenn and John is a privilege that I look forward to listening to as soon as it is released. I just listened to Ta-Nehesi Coates read "Between the World and Me" and kept coming back to their astute critiques of the work. Thank you for everything. You've won my heart.
Deep, thoughtful, insightful conversations about current issues.
What a refreshing change it is to hear intelligent people discussing ideas rather than talking heads yelling past each other.
Elevate the narratives - thinking not optional!
I really love this show and listen to each episode as it is released. The discourse is so far beyond the yap we are generally exposed to via our standard news outlets. I appreciate that Glenn tries to play devil's advocate and that John and Glenn both show minds open to influence from new information or thinking. I've had my own positions pushed around and am happy for it. Thanks for putting out a quality podcast for thinking people.
