    I generally enjoy your content, but the social justice warrior elements, not just here but in previous episodes are well, are big turns offs. We can go into details about why each of the virtue signaling moments were cringe-worthy and Illogical, but I will move on to try to keep this relatively brief.
    However, hearing people who are obviously verbally adept, engage in a game so low on the intellectual totem pole feels very strange.

    The topic of politics can of course be dangerous ground, it often is, but it seems like you are going out of your way to make the topic even more toxic. Regarding the Jacoby golden shovel rant in this episode for instance, calling it ‘alt rightish’ comes across as a divisive straw-man – as just a chance to fling mud at the opposing side, when the closest you get to Jacoby’s real life counterpart, with *some* right wing leanings would be Alex Jones, who is not part of the alt-right, and on countless points not even part of the right….

    I’m no fan of conspiracy theories, and I’m no fan of Jones, but Lynch did go on Alex Jones’ show a couple of years ago…..they both had raised many of the same conspiracy questions regarding 9/11, and they had a respectful conversation.

    With Frost being obsessively into anti-Trump conspiracies, and Alex Jones being a high dB Trump supporter, it was quite obvious who that scene originated from. I thought it was nicely carried out, but the scene itself felt somewhat shoehorned in, and like the kind of thing you would expect from Frost at this point.

    Your analysis of it was interesting though. In drawing a parallel between Jacoby’s “nonsensical speech of hate” and a typical “nationalistic speech filled with anger that makes no sense’, you inadvertently showcased exactly why the country is SO divided. It is that kind of thinking, doing it.
    It’s a huge problem that both sides choose to see each other as illogical, crazy, empty, filled with hateful rhetoric. Nationalists also see ‘globalists/leftists’ as people full of empty words, with nothing but hate (often resulting in straight out violence) for people with more conservative views, rooted in a utopian mindset.

    I see the tone deaf nature on both sides of the spectrum.

    Either way, there IS plenty to like in your podcasts, and I wish you good luck with it in the future.
