Bite-size chunks of Lex and Steve
And I thought I worked hard! After releasing the full 3 hour 31 minute discussion on his podcast channel yesterday, Lex has now published six (so far) bite-size excerpts on key issues on his Lex Clips YouTube channel:
- Human civilization is headed toward an economic crisis
