Let me save you some time: Galloway interviews a socialist and agrees, the end. 🙄

This particular episode Scott goes full Liberal Progressive and continues to show how biased he is with his politics. He actually recommends vaccine passports. Only 3-5% of Americans travel internationally, so why would he want that?🤔 Start thinking people, Scott isn't the answer, he's part of the problem.

Scott's comments on "critical race theory" are completely wrong. Of course as a liberal, he blames conservatives. He continues to fan the flames of divisiveness and thinks that he's exposing racism by continuing to point the fake finger of righteous.

Jack Ma stole ANT from Alibaba shareholders. Corp governance in China, buyer beware.

I find the episodes with guests who question the Prof's narrative more insightful.

Don't bother listening to this one folks, unless you want to know how out of touch Judd Apatow is with reality. He literally compares the President to late 1930s Germany. Groving bands of brown shirts? Oh, yeah, forgot that's Antifa. Concentration camps? No, not happening here either, and no DHS detention centers that send back illegal aliens ARE NOT death camps!

Oz Doesn’t get criticized for being a conservative... He is rightly criticized by the medical world for being a snake oil salesman, willing to back any trumped up salve, cream, or oil if the price is right

As a white male, born from white parents who started their own businesses to try to be successful, and I as a formed federal agent who defended this country from foreign threats, I take great unbridge with this episode and the person interviewed. They may have their experiences, but from a white male perspective, it's totally not correct. No older white males are making my life better.

The guy interviewed in this episode says that when Trump came to power we were the only superpower and fails to recognize anything before Trump. To call this man biased and ignorant would be to give him a compliment. Don't bother listening to this episode, it's nothing but ignorance.
