Do you know why the government prefers to call cannabis "marijuana?" Or which company might have suffered if hemp products had been legal to manufacture in the USA? These are just a couple of things I learned in the first couple of podcasts. Mr. Calton is an excellent speaker. If all history teachers spoke like he does, history would be everyone's favorite class in public school. (my kids loved history because they were taught at home) He never assumes, is honest about what is known, but is not shy about calling out the hucksters.
