Don't listen if you like convention
Trump and Pence supporters can just ignore this podcast that's chock full of research and facts that will totally debunk all their ancient rhetoric. If you believe that America is the land of the free and that all you have to do is pull yourself up by the bootstraps to make it in this country this podcast is definitely not for you. Take your 1950s culture over to Hannity or something because this podcast will only make you angry with its forward thinking and progressive attitude toward American culture and the way we think about the values and norms that have been a part of our society since man first crushed grapes. If you're looking to make America white-male centric again, keep right on looking for different podcast beacuse this one's not for you. My conservative friends really like The Huckabee Report.
