I enjoyed your podcast with Joe Rogan. Subscribed to your podcast to see what you are about. Thought about checking out your books. That will not happen now. First episode I listened to, you felt the need to trash talk Texans. Now I'm not a native Texan and won't normally refer to myself as a Texan but I did marry one and have lived here for a number of years. You don't know shit about Texas or its people. You come across as just another smug California douche. You live in a state with the highest concentration of wealth and the highest number of homeless people while paying for an apartment that you don't live in because you choose to be an uppity hippie living in a van. The sad thing is that you put yourself before your guest and now his story won't be heard. Good job being Californian.
