About Us

Off Baseline is a podcast about politics and culture through the various lenses of the social sciences. These topics are explored through the host's left-of-center analysis as a self-proclaimed SJW Christian socialist shrink. His attempts at self-reflection, wit, and occasional amusement are simultaneously worthy of ridicule and pity.
