Cancel culture is real! So, how do we speak truth to power, while also avoiding getting canceled?

Need a laugh? Let's be real... America needs one, giant, collective laugh right about now.
Well, in order to laugh, we need something to laugh at, which is why Adam Nutter joined the show! Ha!
See Adam? I can make jokes too!
All kidding aside (until the episode, that is!), Adam is a stand-up comedian and host of the podcast "Nerds With Words", which is a comedy podcast hosted by Adam and his associate, Neil Wood. Adam is a self-described libertarian, which prompted me to ask, "how can libertarians share libertarian ideas, yet still be funny/not overtly political?".
What transpired is a nearly hour-long conversation of fun, good laughs, and some A+ content.
I've been sitting on this episode for a few months, so I apologize in advance for some of the dated references. However, with today being July 4th, I thought this would be a great episode to share that will let you decompress from the intensity of the 24/7 news cycle.
