  1. No word on why you don’t discuss the presidency of Trump? You deleted my last question and I’m assuming you don’t like Trump. Meanwhile you are visiting presidents that were slave owners and racists. You acknowledge President Woodrow Wilson who has a huge racist.

    1. I haven’t deleted your questions, but I also don’t think you’re communicating in good faith. There is a whole episode dedicated to Donald Trump’s childhood and birthplace, that I did visit and you can find on the website.

  3. Joe, I just listened to your March 22 episode on Montpelier. I appreciated the fact that you updated the episode with the news about the Montpelier Foundation Board’s reversal of their agreement to share power with the Montpelier Descendant Committee. In case you don’t know, two days ago they went a step further into the old-white-supremacist-guy-abyss and FIRED Dr. Matthew Reeves, Dr. Elizabeth Chew and other staff members as well as suspending Dr Mary Furlong Minkoff and Christopher Pasch. OUTRAGEOUS!
