KKK are loving that Blacks relish killing Black opps. Are Blacks who miss that fact worthy of being Draco'd by their fellow Blacks?

This podcast--"Ain't nothin wrong with a gun"-- urges criminal gun use. The police ought to use it as evidence when arresting all concerned.

HIRE A SOUND ENGINEER! Interesting content rendered unlistenable by amateurish sound recording.

The pronunciation of vowels is acceptable, but the pronunciation of consonants is not. Everyone should chant SHARP POINT SHARPPP POINTTT 108 times before picking up the microphone.

Shakespeare's history plays address the difficulty addressed here: the succession of power. Those plays ought to be read by everyone who spoke in this podcast.

Slightly better production values, this episode, but still way too much extraneous noise intruding. Still a need for a Honky to twiddle knobs and make the podcast smoother.

Dreadful production values. Step up! Hire a Honky who knows sound equipment. After he twiddles his white knobs, fans will be able to hear the podcast clearly. As-is, amateurs are making the podcast unlistenable. Everybody talking at once is juvenile.

Production values on podcast are unfeasibly low. Hire a Honky to twiddle the knobs and ensure that fans can hear properly. Never have two or more voices broadcasting at once.

Five men shouting at once so the listener can make out nothing: three out of ten for radio production values, gentlemen.

"That piece of shit child of yours." What a godforsaken poltroon. Wishing Covid 19 on an innocent infant. After that, he tries to strike the high moral tone? No go. Nobody is lower than he is, if we are to take him at his word. Out of his own mouth he stands condemned. The sooner he is imprisoned for 99 years the better. Living proof that there is no honour among thieves.
