This is one of (if not the best) podcast I've ever heard and im only 20mins in (had to rewind plenty of time to really comprehend the exquisite choice of words). This is simply incredible. Thank you Lex and Robert for this gold mine!

This guy totally blew my mind. So many times where he would put into words things that my soul, experience and knowledge knew to be true yet I would not have been able to be articulate.

This is one of my favorite podcasts of all time! I really like how the guest incorporates Jordan Peterson's influence on him into his critical thinking and reasoning. Makes a lot of sense about value and logos and ancient mythological stories like the Bible being tools for civilization.
