This is our first podcast — we have several more in the hopper, recording more nearly every Saturday.

This is the first of many podcasts. Please pay attention to the humor between Josh and I. Josh Kent is the author “The Witch at Sparrow Creek,” a great guy and a great friend.

Elitism is a special breed of arrogance and can be found even in anti-intellectual circles. And I want to really parse what I mean by anti-intellectual. This is the type that eschews any knowledge that is received via education. This is not about believing one thing or the other, but about rejecting thoughts, ideas, facts simply because they come from a lettered individual. Elitism is a smugness wherein the person believes he or she has all the knowledge that is needed because they are somehow super-learned.

I could go on, but I want to leave it there. Enjoy the podcast
