My interview with Taylor Ealand of Contrarix

Since its inception, my Things I Think About podcast has been a series of monologues.  I will continue in that tradition. However, starting today, I will be incorporating interviews and panel discussions on political, social and cultural issues as well. This is the first podcast in this new direction.
Today, I join Taylor Ealand for a completely unfiltered conversation on critical race theory, being conservative in California, my disdain for the mainstream media, the equality act, weaknesses inside the Republican Party, genderless bathrooms and more. Tune in for a VERY interesting chat with an up and coming superstar on the red horizon.  | No doubt, you will want to hear more from Taylor Ealand. Find him at and look up "Contrarix" on your preferred podcast platform.
And while you're at it...
