“We are Forerunners. Guardians of all that exists. The roots of the Galaxy have grown deep under our careful tending.

The “Troublesome Truths” podcast

The “Troublesome Truths” podcast

My friend Kyle Trouble and I have been working on a new podcasting series called “Troublesome Truths” over the last few weeks. The idea is to spread some truths out there that might make people flinch, but nonetheless need to be heard. The first two...
