  1. I really enjoyed this podcast and I have already ordered a copy of From Hell. I respect the courage you displayed by talking about the Free Masons on a public forum and wish you the best with that…. I also learned that when Dallas says he will edit something out in post production, he is not to be trusted. Only in America! All my best from the place where yes, “We all talk like that.”

    • From Hell is a great book, you did yourself a favor by ordering it. Nothing derogatory was said while discussing the Masons, and everyone knows that Dallas is a prankster. Thanks for listening.
