Benjamin is unique and thought provoking. He is fair and unbiased but a critical thinker. The show talks about things mainstream media won’t and has provocative guests others won’t dare talk with.

I stumbled across this podcast after seeing Benjamin’s name referenced in a blog. I haven’t watched the YouTube channel so I’m really happy this is available in podcast form. I consider myself left of center but I, like many “progressive types,” have grown increasingly alarmed at the rhetoric and authoritarian reach of what are supposed to be groups representing progressive politics. I don’t identify with almost anything on the right so it’s been strange to be so at odds with what I considered “my people.” It’s good to hear that this is actually a much bigger issue and Benjamin is such a great interviewer and I really appreciate his willingness to encourage reasoned and respectful opinions from all sides.
