This is a great venue to check out if you want to share your thoughts, pick someone else’s brain, and find out what others are thinking on a particular topic. Typically a current event is tossed out to start the discussion and everyone shares their opinions or research they have done. An hour or so later, you’ll be shocked at all the various topics which have been discussed. You are free to participate or just sit back and listen to the full discussion. Lots of things are discussed, some with great depth of knowledge and firsthand experience.
