“The men on this show are engaging and interesting to listen to; they keep the pace going.
The only show that was a bit of a pain to get through was their show about QAnon.
These men don’t live in the US nor do they understand the US. I’m not a Q person, but I’ve seen enough of their content and I’ve met enough people that take it seriously that I can say that listening to the QAnon episode could do the novice listener more harm than good.
The hosts think that the Q movement is just another silly conspiracy theory; the hosts act intellectually/emotionally baffled by QAnon throughout the show, showcasing just how little of a place of authority they have to speak about QAnon.
Knowing the way most tinfoil hat-wearing folks in this world are currently behaving, one would think from this review that I’m some raving, Q supporting lunatic. I’m not. I believe the biggest danger to Q is misunderstanding it. They seem to only get stronger and more influential the more they are misunderstood: dangerous. This episode only muddies then waters further in regards to Q: dangerous.
It’s tragic how much misinformation and panic have caused people to have zero grounds upon which to reason anymore, but there is such a huge amount of nonsense information going around that it’s hard to blame anyone for having some level of cognitive dissonance at this point.
So I can’t blame the hosts, good show, but they lose one star for covering a topic that they dangerously do not have a chance at understanding (they aren’t Americans).
They’re speaking directly from the media they’re being fed and the limited research they’ve done (one host didn’t know if Q had started on 4Chan or 8Chan, yet proceeds to spend over an hour creating a podcast informing listeners about Q!
They have no idea what it’s like to be born into a multi-generational American family going back to the American Revolution & the Mayflower.
Love this show though and still found this podcast valuable. I just worry that lots of cognitive dissonance surrounding US politics will spread via this podcast, and offerings like this could only serve to further fan the flames of the Q movement.
Some animals in the wild are best to scare off; they’ll run; whereas some other animals in the wild are tougher and have less of a fear response and, ultimately, are considerable warriors: one should run from these animals as fast as possible, just as folks who aren’t Americans are doing the world a disservice by trying to understand Q.
4 out of 5 stars. Will def continue to subscribe and look forward to many more great podcasts.”
