Posted on Posted in Insights, Thoughts

A conversation map to guide future prospective viewers. Take it or leave it; it is simply my imploration to help. This is for a 3 hours & 30 minutes convo between Daniel Pekic (host) & Lyle Mcdonald (guest).

I also have done one similarly late last year (Saturday 7th December, 2019) on Kresser VS Wilks’ Game Changer debate in the Joe Rogan discussion. Click here to jump straight to my comment. I believe I was the first to contribute a timestamp. However only then to be quickly swamped (to this day) by the usual pedestrian chit-chats.
