I really really like the content your putting up you seem to be savvy about who and what you put on, but.. Haha (I don't notice it as much in the newer episodes) your breathing and clearing your thought and other noises. I'm not trying to be mean but once you've placed the mic step far away from it so I can't hear you. Like I said the newer ones are not as bad but the Noam Chomsky ones are really bad I couldn't listen to the whole thing. Otherwise I enjoy your podcast very much including your oldtimey stuff. Keep up the good work your listener, Jesse.

Before Television my family would watch the radio shows. Yes I said watch, we used our imagination. When TV came I missed the radio shows because the imagination was better than what was shown on TV.

I hope you enjoy the shows like I did. Let your mind free to see what is on the show. You can see more with your mind than with your eyes.

Axis of Evil: Christopher Hitchens

Acclaimed writer and political scholar Christopher Hitchens may just be the only writer to have recently visited Iran, Iraq and North Korea.

Christopher Hitchens at Politics and Prose
Politics and Prose
Summary
Christopher Hitchens speaks about his new book God is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything.

Hitchens, an always colorful and sometimes outrageous commentator, now takes aim at God. Sam Harris and Richard Dawkins have tried, but that hard-to-hit Fellow keeps popping back up.
