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.

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

Uh tax subsidy for housing disappeared two years ago. I own a house. Got it by not taking vacations, nose to perpetual grindstone , saving for years. Maybe it’s not all that.

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.
