The world's reserve currency

Do you think Russia and China are making a play on the US dollar as the world's reserve currency?

Jon Stewart for President?

Although he hasn't said it himself. Many of his friends recently mentioned how Jon Stewart should run for president when he received the Mark Twain Award. For me he represents a unique figure who has a proven track record (fighting for vets and first responders), a high profile with the public, and an ability to resonate with people who fall on both the right and the left. I would love for him to run but fear that he's too smart to wrap himself up in that. What do you guys think? PS Jon Stewart / Krystal Ball 2024?

Pro-Life Conservative Shifts

Krystal and Saagar, what do you make of some conservatives who are pro-life and also pro-childcare and in favor of government assistance towards expecting mothers? After the Roe overturning was announced, South Dakota governor Krisi Noem announced several programs and services for residents to seek help, and Rachel Bovard has long talked about conservatives needing to evolve their stance on family support. Do you think this evolution will go anywhere?

Considering Alternative Streaming Platforms

In today's mini-show, you covered YouTube's growing censorship of topics that are considered to be misinformation. Would you consider taking a stand against YouTube's near streaming monopoly by uploading your video content to alternative platforms as well? I'd love to be able to watch your show from Spotify! (Odysee is another great platform that has set itself up as a contender in the streaming space).

Are you aware that YouTube blocks comments that are critical of YouTube?

I saw your segment about YouTube censorship and posted a comment about their hypocrisy, but quickly discovered that it wasn't visible to any YouTube account except mine. I deleted and reposted several times and the same thing happened - but when I posted a comment about my comment being blocked, it seems to have gotten past the censorship algorithm. Here's the gist of what I tried to post - so I'd be grateful if you can read it out: "The irony about YouTube's censorship policy is this. They're 100% PRO-MISINFORMATION... of the kind their ADVERTISERS spew out at us all the time. Their anti-misinfo policy isn't about protecting viewers, it's all about maximising ad sales. I've seen obvious scams advertising on YouTube many times - and whenever I've googled those company names, I've quickly found evidence to support my suspicions. But clearly, thousands of gullible people must be taken in, and get ripped off. YouTube profits from this, but they don't provide any way to complain about unethical or fraudulent advertising."
