"You actually allow the time for thoughts to emerge, time which allows space for those present to think and respond, for me there is no length that is too long to listen to thoughtful, insightful human beings thinking through very layered and complex topics. It's a radical act to do it. An act of resistance to allow time to be slowed down enough to think (& feel)."
"One of my favorite things about What's Left is how you all have these remarkable discussions with no fear of judgment (or being perceived as judging) even when you disagree. It's a nice change from the echo chamber environment so pervasive in today's world."
"I watch your channel because of the way you discuss ideas - there is a sense of open-endedness and sharing of process that doesn't come across in more heavily curated spaces."
