Big win! Well researchedcand written

Mr. Hess' reading is artfully done, but whomever did the mix-down failed miserably ar transitions, making obnoxious patches and incongruent comnections in the track that distract a listener.

Mr. Watson is due praise for his reccunting of a horrific portion of our great nation"s history.

Trump happened. We had to look out of our bubble.

First, Bob Hess, yours is a masterful bit. Spot-on delivery is deadpan yet elicits pathos with simple, effective timing and artful enunciation. Bravo!

Salena and Brad get props for their far-right-wing (read: centrist or just-left-of-center viewpoint) expose of the people who dared vote against the inevitable. They rightly do demonstrate that "the populists" are different from the usual conservative voter, but their characterization of middle-America as a swaying voter mass seeking something they can believe in between a right-wing Republican party represented by the likes of corporatist/globalist Mitt Romney and Progressive John McCain as opposed to an equally-legitimate DNC in the image of Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, and Hillary/Bill/Barack (Progressive totalitarians all) is indicative of their deeply-ingrained indoctrination. To have gone to the Rust Belt, interviewed a few stiffs, heard their rants and concerns, and written nicely about them yet missed who they (We, The People) are is predictable. To have data sets acquired by political operatives intent on cracking the code for the next power grab is wonderful for you, I'm sure. Good. Keep trying to classify folks and enable the leftward-ratcheting of the political landscape. It is working so well for you. All that artful (really - kudos!) writing and money spent and expansion of your precious carbon footprint for the travel and production surely have enlarged your appreciation that there are really real human people out tgere. I'm glad you were welcomed in Flyover Country, and wish you well. We are not swaying wheat in the wind of the "inevitable" Darwino-Marxian societal evolution your professors taught you to bank on. We still stand right where we always have been. Right of center between Tyranny on the left and Anarchy on the right, caring for neighbors but preferring to be left alone. Third Way Progressives or US-based globalist Social Democrats fighting over who gets to be tyrant are voted against, and many if us will not show up to vote for "lesser-of-two-evil" totalitarians. Trump was elected by anti-collectivist middle-of-the-road brown-paper-bag Americans who naturally despise elite do-gooders, corporatists, and opportunists. Nice book. We know who and where you are, but for all your Herculean efforts actually visiting diversity instead of just claiming you know it because of someone you went to school with, you still do not seem to fathom those with whom you spent so much time. Moments of candor: 7 out of 10 points - losses for fully-understandable misinterpretation/misunderstanding. Stephen Keating's architecture exhibited in jounalism: 8 of 10. Thank you for not bashing the giants you interviewed and on whose shoulders we all stand.

Professor Podany Makes it Real!

Hard-evidence-based research and understanding complemented by an artful, conversational deilvery made this an entertaining as well as educational escape to the very-relevant past. Brava, Professor!

Shut up and talk microbes

Dr. Blaser, your research on microbes is interesting, I'd say groundbreaking. It would be cool to listen to you speak, as you have compelling research to share. Compelling, but you yourself claim you get too many yawns. Your killing mice is sad, but not nearly as pitiful as your proudly flaunting an almost inexplicable ignorance of good scientific research being done on climatology and our origins. Almost inexplicable - except that you carry an advanced degree from and practice research at indoctrination mills, you have held a post in that bastion of corporatism and the best "science" lobbyists for the likes of Monsanto, Pfizer and other Big-Progressive one-worlders can but, the CDC. Darwinism is a problem. He was mad at his dad. and that hurt his objectivity. Drop Darwin. Drop the fantasies about this "Billions-of-Years-Old-Earth" That is not science. If someone btought the evolution myth to your lab with all of its lack of proofs and missing parts, you would rightly run them out for fear of cross-contamination, Groupthink, or guilt by association. Science is repeatable, but you've been told thar before. Stop leaning on junk "science". You have something important to say. Micribiome Alarmism is a thing. Global Warming was a hoax. Connecting your research to this power and money grabbing hyperbole explicitly AND in rhetorical style utterly deflates your baloon. Flat out. Speak about the antibiotics, the missing microbiota, the effects. Leave the lies to the media and Al Gore. Could'a been a great read. Well written. Poisoned by lazy we've-always-believed-this-way funding-friendly pop-pseudo-science. Less Stephen Keating and more the Martin Blaser who actually cares about people and science, please?

Another outta-the-park hit!

Jonathan Rogers' rehash/convolution-from King David's tale continues to thrill and elicit pathos for his characters. He owns the art of story-telling without resorting to illicit props like foul language or lewd or grotesque descriptives. OK, there is just enough munching on swamp critters to keep a boy flipping pages looking for the next gem. But all with great concern for God, family, virtue, and stewardship of this amazing planet granted to us for this life. May blessings abound for writer and reader and listener alike.

A medieval kingdom in the 'Bama bayou?!!

A brilliant elaborative rehash of David and Goliath, with a swamp critter and massive ex... But no spoilers here. Nicely written and told. A page-turner with a plot line and wholesome thematic elements that do not rely on cheap props like foul language and "adult situations". One caution holds in that the novel depicts and celebrates a twelve-year-old boy making a rash decision to disobey.

Kudos, Dr. Corsi!

More like this, pleas... er... wait. We want far fewer reasons for such harrowing accounts of actual and actionable horrors being committed in the highest halls of our government and in abuse of the good name of the greatest people on earth. We, The People need to know and it must become common discourse that tge weasels are up to multi-trillion-dollar schemes and billions of dollars into cash reserves our children owe to China. We need to act, and quickly and wisely to preserve our great republic by dealing methodically, rationally, and harshly with those who take advantage of public trust and abuse the most vulnerable in their quests for power and fortune, all the while attempting to condemn the rest of us to their communist aspirations. Well done!

Bravo, Mr. Morano!

Speaking truth to the one-world-government- and personal-profit-seeking opportunists and weasels of the (sadly extravagantly lucrative) Warmist/Changist Alarmism industry is who Mark is ad always was. Well-reasoned and researched, and backed by empirical truths as any rhetorician could wish to be, Morano demonstrates the agenda and those who have pushed it since it was cooling in the '70s. Thank you, Sir. Your math has helped Senator Inhof and true scientists everywhere keep the debate and the true hope of modern society (its the economy, stupid) alive, spared from the profiteering that would have ensued a 2016 Clinton election. Sacred Gores have been rightly and roundly cowed.
