Baggage in Criticism

You may be familiar with the "Boiled Leather Audio Hour", the podcast I do together with Sean T. Collins about all sort of ASOIAF stuff. We were often accused by parts of the fandom to bring in our liberal bias, something we consider to be one of our core concepts, which is why such criticism hasn't really resonated with us. But the thing goes even deeper. The whole idea of somehow dissecting onself from the whole mindset one lives in is naive. It can't be done. The thing why I mention it is that MovieBob ran into similar problems, and he made a video discussing the problem. I can only concur.

    Liberal or conservative, the content is thought provoking. While I don't lean towards your political views, the pods are both entertaining and informative regardless of political skew. Keep up the good work guys
