RevolutionZ has a few different “sequences” of episodes, In each sequence each episode tries to be self contained, but the best listening experience is, when possible, to take them in order – as they do often build on prior content. In the sections below, most recent is at the top, oldest at the bottom. The Next American Revolution Sequence is full of vision and strategy, however.
