  • Complete and Comprehensive

    Appreciate that could have been a simplistic takedown of the Calexit debacle was instead a hard look at water rights, political proportional representation, indigenous history, and even an examination of the narrowness of 'freedom' that supporters of succession movements believe in.

  • Interesting Premise, not the best execution

    I enjoyed the story being told, but did feel it was let down by the host’s attempts to center the narrative around himself (ie by promoting his music career or his activism barely tangential to the states topic). more

  • Self absorbed and ad ridden

    So, as one of those people in the Deep South that Californians continue to talk about with such intense derision without ever visiting or attempting to know or understand, this podcast is as hurtful as the rest. It’s like listening to MRAs. Sure, there’s valuable feedback, but it always comes with this pointed cruelty toward another group. It’s ugly. It’s bad rhetoric. more

  • Thoughtful, informative and wise

    We’ll worth the investment of time to learn about California’s separatist movement. Host Xiuhtezcatl presents thorough investigative journalism with themes of freedom and conflict. What starts out as a story about how and why some Californians want the state to become an independent country becomes a deeply thoughtful argument for facing our differences and remaining in community. His conclusion is rooted in indigenous values and experience.
