  1. George is such a force for sanity.
    I hope this isn’t rude, but I came across a link for his podcast, which he is just starting…
    Ta da!

    • Hello MDavis. Not rude at all. I love podcasts. When I can not be at my computers I listen to them through my Iphone and earpods. What is his casts about? Are they news, social commentary, comedy, history? I listen to news, atheist stuff, and two comedy casts. Hugs

      • I don’t yet know what it’s about. I just saw the announcement that I just missed his first one. Looks like two links on the page so far, and both have thumbnail descriptions about racial issues in the U.S.
        But it’s new, so I can’t predict how it will evolve.
        I’d be interested in seeing podcasts on historical development of U.S. racial issues. It was just a few years ago that I read that the original Plymouth colony pilgrims survived their first winter, in part, by grave robbing. Imagine being a Powhatan and bringing along a potluck dish to help your new, clueless foreign neighbors survive and noticing them using Great Aunt Sophie’s old carving knife, that you buried with her yourself, to cut up the venison. They should have given that bunch of heartless fiends the Virginia Dare treatment – you want to survive, you gotta learn to show some respect. If you can do that, then you can join us. If not, you’re on your own.
        You know, if race issues are going to be covered a lot…

        • Hello MDavis. I find history very interesting. I would love to hear how race issues have developed and changed over time here in the US. Hugs
