Stimulating & Thought Provoking
Patrick and Dennis debate or relate on a new issue every week, tying the topic to historical, philosophical and personal notions in the process. The pair avoids the Scylla and Charybdis of podcasting; neither engaging in rote recitation of research nor avoiding substantive discussion to focus on the minutiae of personal opinion. As the title suggests, the show will get you thinking without feeling like you are being told to finish your vegetables.
