    It was a really good interview. Tom Haugh, the host of the show, is one of those Chicago guys who you would think is just a regular joe, but who has a really powerful and insightful mind and strong moral compass. You don’t hear voices like his (or yours) on most business and investment oriented shows, yet those are the ones most needed in these dark days.

    I’m glad to have heard the two of you talking.

    Oh and I also meant to compliment the idea that WhoWhatWhy studies the influence of propaganda on society. I definitely am looking forward to content on that. Below is a different website (that I also like) that talks about Edward Bernays – Sigmund Freud’s cousin – who was a master of propaganda.

    Another very good interview Russ. I very much like that you mentioned WhoWhatWhy feels it has a responsibility to “engage the public”. A very important detail!

    Great quote, Russ: “We really care about what we put into our bodies, but we don’t seem to care about what we put into our minds”… – (his interview begins at 27:40 of the radio broadcast)
