Dial It Back Or Die

Subscribed: 9Played: 161


I realize that for most of us it is extremely traumatic to fully grasp just how wrong this world has become. And that it is therefore much easier mentally and far more comforting psychologically to blame it all on the 'Left' or the 'Right'. But this podcast gives an interesting, thorough, and dispassionate analysis of just how and why we got to here from there. Further, by using established, mainstream science, it then presents a clear, complete, non-ideological picture of human behavior and the human condition.No, really.And, since each episode builds upon the last, kindly start with Episode 1. And continue.
