I had the privilege of being a guest on John Anderson’s podcast, John Says Things.
John was a gracious host who enjoys good conversations, and we talked about everything from podcasting, to politics, to conspiracy theories ( which I don’t usually discuss publicly, because people think I’m crazy) – to religion and Christianity and it’s role in modern society.
I enjoyed hanging out with John, and I’d love to be on the show again, though, next time, I’d like to be on with him and his wife so I can enjoy the way she cusses him out in person.
