Fresh off a great interview, it’s time for some Tommenting! Lots of people asked if I was going to talk about Sam Harris and Omer Aziz, and while I’m definitely not doing a full review like I did with Maryam Namazie, I want to at least talk about some broad themes. So I do that, as well as revisit the crimes and potential motivations of Craig Hicks a year on from that horrible atrocity. And finally, do we not call out terrorism enough when it’s committed by white people? All this and a couple listener comments!
