I am very excited to drop part one of my talk with PRISONERS OF INFINITY author Jasun Horsley. As I am in Texas and he is in the U.K., we did have some audio dropouts and weirdness at times, but hopefully the technical glitches do not overwhelm the content. My thanks to Jasun for agreeing to talk. We cover a lot of ground.
I just recently discovered a short audio excerpt of one of my first public speaking events, at a now-defunct bookstore called Brave New Books in Austin, Texas, all the way back in 2011. Note that the music was added by my friend Randy and is not the new theme song for the podcast. Unfortunately this short piece is all that still exists from that appearance, but I thought it does show I've been on message for the last ten years. The book I am discussing in this appearance is the first DISSENTING VIEWS.
