This week Lando and I are expanding on an idea that came from the preamble of show 53. We're taking that last segment of Lord Acton's famous quote and dissecting it, exploring the notion of great men almost always being evil men. Is evil a necessity of greatness, or is there something more subtle involved in the transition of an individual from meager to mighty?

Hey Lando and Joe,

Great show. I can listen to you fellas talk shit all night.

Just an Idea maybe you can use

Could you put your show topics up possibly in advance to raise discussion with your listeners? You can than possibly bring into your show some of these opions and ideas.

I starting listening to your show as a Mysterious Universe listener and got turned on to you guys after your 3 hour marathon show with Ben.
The ozone nightmare is without a doubt my most anticipated podcast.

Keep up the good work guys.
Especially love the fact that the shows are looong.

(Aussie living in Peru, yeah your listeners are widespread)

Thanks again,

I\'m gonna have to say that rape is evil. I can think of no culture or society where rape is good.

Rape is evil, I agree, but in our culture. I do know of cultures where \\\"rape\\\" is allowed. Perhaps frowned upon, but allowed to go on. And what about arranged marriages between much younger unwilling woman and older men of power? Its not a matter of an act being good so much as people letting it go on. Letting it go on is paramount to saying, its okay.
