What a wonderful podcast
Sure wish Joshua Holland would produce more podcasts as all the ones that I've listened to over the last year or so have been so very indepth, thoughtful, well-researched, intelligent and extremely interesting and timely. This is one of the top political podcasts I've come across and I listen to many.
Great, timely podcast
Really enjoy listening to Joshua and his guests. My only wish would be for more podcast episodes; it’s pushing two months since the last one.
Holland is a despicable, dishonest criminal
Holland is a dishonest, criminal fraud. He relentlessly lies -- via sleazy propaganda tactics -- about the most important issue facing society: computerized election theft.
