  1. thank you both for this great podcast…I recently found media roots and I am so thankful that you guys exist…I love your “challenge the establishment” viewpoints. I have listened to about 8 of your previous shows and I can’t seem to find anything that I don’t agree with….keep up the great work…you guys should try and get onto Cenk Uygurs new TYT show on Current…just to slap some sense into the MSM =)

  2. You guys are great and work really well off each other. And so much vital info presented! Thanks for doing this. When are schools & public radio stations gonna make this Mandatory listening?? Best Wishes. (btw, some issue with the security code entry system–let’s see if it works with a new code?)
