The Shift Podcast

What the Shift is about.

The Shift is a podcast designed to explore alternatives to the mainstream, corporate sponsored media that bombards our senses everyday.  Did you know there are five major media corporations that produce 95% of the media you are asked to ingest 24/7?  These corporations have a profound influence on how you think, feel and perceive about the world around you.

All this media is bought and paid for by those pesky commercials that show up everywhere.  Those commercials not only entice you to consume, but they also cause a conflict of interest with the content creators.  Do you really think your favorite news channel is telling the truth about healthcare when their profits depend on those Viagra commercials?  Are you getting real news about the economy from that program paid for by the five mega-banks?

The Shift promises to break you out of the Matrix with in depth, long form interviews featuring experts unafraid to discuss topics outside of the mainstream corporate narrative.  Not only are we expanding the scope of the conversation by exposing the real reasons for the problems of today, The Shift will also provide real world solutions that, with your help, have the potential to regain control of our bodies, our communities and our political system from those who steal our labor and our community resources for the benefit of the few over the many.

Educate yourself and join us and people all over the world who are seeking to make The Shift to a more vibrant and sustainable future.

The Shift is now working with The Spiritual Populist!!!

Though in the very early stages of implementation, The Spiritual Populist seeks to aggregate information that describes historical movements and current events from a perspective that we call Spiritual Populism.  Those bombarded by news funded by corporate and government sources have been led to believe that Populism as a political movement reflects “far-right” perspectives within the thrall of “conspiracy theories” presented in “fake news” stories by those propagating “alternative facts”.  We at the Spiritual Populist seek to counter these narratives through a dedication to Socratic Dialogue, the Scientific Method, and the Trivium (which exposes logical fallacies).  We promise to provide content backed by the highest standards of journalistic integrity while facilitating open debate concerning narratives and opinions theorized from the facts at hand.

The mainstream narrative paints all modern Populists under the rubric of “far-right” Trump-supporting MAGAs and Patriots. The Spiritual Populist understands that many who recognize the root causes of political corruption and financial centralization cannot be defined by this community.  While happy to unite with all those willing to address societal issues through an understanding of their root causes, and respecting the values of the Protestant Reformation and Western philosophies of natural rights and individual liberties, The Spiritual Populist incorporates Eastern, and Indigenous beliefs as well.  Content will include concepts from around the world to help interpret not only the origin of many of the problems but also express solutions from within these alternative paradigms that can help humanity thrive.
