My Thoughts: If you’re interested in these guys and their fields of expertise, I highly suggest you watch the podcast. They look at and talk about pictures throughout the podcast, which is lost when you listen to it rather than watch it. This is essentially a Graham Hancock podcast since Randall rarely chimes in.
