Enjoy a sampling of videos from my "PonderingPodob" YouTube series, which ran from October 2013 - October 2014. I discussed a wide variety of current events, contemporary topics in American politics, and other phenomena I felt were not receiving enough attention. My hope for the series was to engage friends and others who sought to gain a deeper understanding of American politics and current events.
