The Spectacle Podcast: The Hole In Our Soul

This episode of The Spectacle Podcast isn’t about politics, though Melissa Mackenzie, publisher of The American Spectator, and Scott McKay, TAS Contributing Editor and publisher of both and, are always going to touch on that subject when they get together.

It’s actually about morality.

Books mentioned in this episode:

Peace of Soul:…
