That was a great podcast S.T.. I think I may have heard a dissertation not unlike the final thought a few times over the years. Culture the final frontier… Perhaps a course on the influences of popular culture would not be a bad idea. If your audience truly wishes to challenge their own thinking and beliefs I think it would be a smashing success. Until next time my friend.

If your audience truly wants to challenge their own thinking I believe that a podcast on the influences of popular culture would be a smashing success. You are doing a great job. Keep up the good work and keep the faith.
