Great Podcast. Dave and Robb are off to a outstanding start. The Controversial Truth proves to be insightful, throught provoking and just darn entertaining. I'm very much looking forward to following this one.
Excellent job guys, can't wait for the next one!
I've never come across a more level-headed discussion about the problems facing this country anywhere. I'm a doctor in private practice. These guys have a great ability to see beyond the surface on many issues, particularly health care. Thank you for clarifying these issues guys. Job extremely well done!
I was very excited when Robb stated he was going to be part of this podcast. I'm very familiar with Robb Wolf, not so much with David, but that's going to change.
Common sense isn't so common now isn't it?
Thanks for bringing voices of reason to us, if only most people, and our elected public servants would take heed to hear these voices.
Now I have the Paleo solution podcast every Tuesday, and the Controversial Truth every Friday.
Thank you again guys. And no matter what happens, keep spreading the truth.
