This Week in Podcasts: Lockdowns, Skankfest, and The Birth of Parliament
Recapping this week's shows
Each weekend, I’ll be sending a recap of the podcasts I’ve put out that week. Thanks for subscribing.
The Chris Spangle Show
Featured Episode: Hawk Jensen on "Follow the Science: On Lockdowns and Liberty"
Hawk Jensen is a documentary filmmaker from Hollywood that has partnered with fellow artists to create a new documentary series called "Follow the Science: On Lockdowns and Liberty." The goal of the SoundMind Creative Group is to establish some cultural literacy and defined terms around the events of the COVID pandemic. What did our society get right these past 19 months and what did our government get wrong, and why is it frowned upon to talk about it? This is an excellent conversation that needs to be had, and memorializing the pandemic from a critical view will be a helpful tool for future generations. They're fundraising now at www.followthesciencefilm.com, so listen in and please consider helping donate towards the project.

Like many Americans, my health insurance costs rose again this year. I have a great plan through my full-time job, but I still wanted to investigate my options. In the process, I had a conversation with Matt Allen, host of How In the Health Insurance? and owner of Iconic Insurance. In our conversation, he shared my various options to cut costs, but also how the Affordable Care Act permanently changed health insurance.

The History of Modern Politics

The check and balance on the King's total authority known as Parliament did not happen in one swift action. It was a series of steps over generations.
