Funny & Insightful
Love the work of Dr. Rollins and enjoy the format of this podcast with the play between humor and deep philosophical insight.
Can’t wait for the next episode!
I’ve been a big fan of Elliott since he was on SourceFed, and now the ValleyFolk. I would always get annoyed when people cut him off or teased him when he was talking about philosophy and politics and et cetera, and I am so glad he has a space to talk about it freely. Peter and Elliott have a subtle and interesting dynamic, and their first episode just left me wanting more. I hope we can get some long episodes in the future, as they are both so obviously passionate about the subject matter!
Deep and Fun
Love to be open to the challenging thinking from Peter Rollins
