Episode 26 - Erik Slader is joined by intrepid author Richard Murff to talk about his latest book, "Pothole of the Gods: On Holy War, Fake News and Other Ill-Advised Ideas" (now available on Amazon)!

Attached to a marauding medical mission, Murff unravels a dismal record of global adventurism from Cyrus the Great, the epic clash of Persia and Greece, the glory that was Rome, the Crusades, America's New World Order, to Iran's attempts to trigger the apocalypse next sometime next week.
