Listening to this episode, got so mad! Laughed at the whole embryo/zygote thing (idiot). The pot shots against liberals at the end... And the constitution as it was intended as written... Not adjusted for progress made since then?? Sounds like he wants to demote women to property as they were then. What else does he want to return to days when constitution was written?? More people need to be aware of this person and his like. How despicable.

This Podcast is awesome. Love listening to the more in depth explanations. I am very alarmed by the statement made that the US gestational limits are on pat with much of the world, then uses China and North Korea as examples... Not exactly a where we should be aiming.

I was really surprised that a liberal outlet had the stones to list all the sordid things about Hunter. Makes me wonder what they say about him on Fox. #hunterisadisgrace #beaugotallthegoodgenes #hookersandmeth #footfetish

Really hate how they always have to bring it back to the U.S. somehow. Really don’t care! You could also do that and also relate it to other countries, if that has to stay. But seriously, discuss the South Korean Election without needing to relate it to the U.S! Maybe relate it to other leaders in south east Asia.

joe isnt spreading mis info..he is like internet social media platforms like fb,twitter,ig...he provides unscripted organic conversations..so he isnt responsible for views n utterances of his guests n the latest 9min video spks about putting disclaimer at start of podcast so that he doesnt get into legal mess..fairplay by JR so far. A cooperating n humble man, Thats JOE. i think ppl are after him because they are JEALOUS of him being funny being a common dude making 100M from spotify deal for mere casually talking n its eating them up inside..so they r trying to knock him 4 making an honest living who makes easy money. i guess all janitors shud also ask that CEOs of corp america be cancelled cuz they too get easy money for less work. plz get off J's(explicit).. n appreciate his natural talent of interviewing guests for 3hrs str8 without sounding boring. Rise up to the talent or sit back & Applause..but go after him n trying to get him cancelled will only expose your desperation n lack of artistic integrity, FRIENDS...

I have been doing meth for 32 solid years. The last time I saw P2P was 25+ years ago. I think this is backwards.
