loved this episode on the legend King Arthur!!! thank you!!!
you can hear the Pittsburgh accent in his voice when he says iiiir-en (iron). love it. great episode.
This was an incredible episode. every second was intense, and the interview overall was really well done. Nick is such a great storyteller and what a story he has. You can hear his voice shaking talking about his nightmares, going to the VA, being a freemason.....phew. Great interview.
covid, climate catastrophy
I can't listen to that one and every 12 minutes, unsubscribed
Nina was a fantastic guest. very said but interesting and important episode.
Eagle Pipe heating and air.....worst. jingle.ever.
Eagle Pipe heating/air....i hate that song. Hate it.
I cant take it anymore without saying something.....i realize the low chances of anyone seeing this, essentially im just yelling into the air, but the Eagle Pipe heating and air commercial is driving me crazy. i dont know how many commercials they paid for but that song/jingle.....i hate it....so much do i hate it. Yes, im being brutally honest about a commercial's jingle. THATS how bad it is, the worst part is how easily it gets stuck in my head. Its unfair,n but i cant help hating the company based solely on that jingle. ok. i feel a little better now.... God do i hate that song.
This is mostly just pretty sad. Guy was obviously suffering from fairly severe psychological/mental disorders. You can definitely can make the case he was wasteful, but at least he gifted the world some beautiful creations. im lucky enough to have seen and toured Neuschwanstein, and i know its essentially a tourist trap, but its undeniably beautiful. If you ever have the opportunity, its absolutely worth spending the day touring that castle.....that castle outcastles almost any other castle. As for his servants, i once cared for an ex's grandfather 2-3 days a week (family was taking turns during hospice). He once threw his breakfast at me, and another time he called me the wrong name and demanded his money back, basically....he could be challenging at times. What stands out to me from that time are his apologies. Saying he couldnt remember what happened or why he did something, but is sure he made a mistake because "he just gets confused sometimes". Obviously, it wasnt hard forgiving the poor guy. i was upset when i heard how Ludwig sometimes treated servants, but then i remembered his servants were probably aware he wasnt well.
This might be my favorite Round Table episode yet 👏
How could James be an ancestor of George? I think you mean descendant.
Very interesting stuff. McWhorter's a fascinating guest.
Unchallenged by the presenter, the fawning over Freud by the guest (who very clearly has bought into the Freudian hagiography) marrs the telling of the genuinely interesting story of Freud's escape from the Nazis. Not worth your time.
everyone is human and nuanced. we can b proud of accomplishments but must be careful not to venerate our fellow humans.
"you have less control of your citizenry when you don't provide access to the things they need"
Very interesting piece that further brings home the point that successful strategy and warfare must include all elements of national power.
um... America was well armed before all of these guys existed. it was a country growing out of the wilderness so everybody had guns to hunt, and protect themselves pretty much from the start...
Very interesting take on Lee
I would love to see more of these round table discussions.
