Replying to the question you guys asked, yes sometimes I do find myself agreeing with you. You guys make a lot of valid points and I enjoy your perspective. Early on I found myself agreeing with Gary more (and still do more often than not) but Damon has made compelling arguments that have swayed me before. But then again sometimes I think your both full of shit but I deeply enjoy your commentary anyway because whether I agree with you guys or not I find pursuing other viewpoints that I may not have explored without your opinion. I love your guys’s show and I love the podcast, keep doing what you guys do best! Hugs!!!
