Why Does Popcorn Pop?

Why does popcorn pop? Interesting little question don't you think? It used to be an answer I'd give people when they asked me some kind of bizarre question. It was my way of being kind of a smart aleck. But the fact of the matter is there is a reason why popcorn pops, and here's why; it turns out that inside that hard dried kernel is a little bit of moisture. When it's heated up the moisture expands and pops that hard outer shell. See I believe that the key to understanding is understanding why, and that's why I try to bring that to my podcast.

Why Are Podcasts Becoming So Popular?

Why are podcasts becoming so popular? I think there's a few basic reasons why they're becoming so popular. Podcasting has opened up this whole new channel for creation, but the thing that it offers you the listener is it's kind of like the Netflix of audio. You can listen on demand. You can listen when you want, how you want, as much or as little as you want. You can rewind and some podcast players even allow you to speed up the audio and things like that. You don't have to be tuning in at a certain time or pre-recording or anything like that. It's right there. It's available on your phone, it's like the Netflix of audio it's perfect.

Does Integrity Matter Anymore?

Here's a question for you. Do you think integrity matters anymore? I'll tell you why I ask that. When you look at all the fake news and fake headlines and fake personalities out there, it kind of makes you wonder right? It goes on and on. Everywhere you turn we're all bombarded with all this information every day. It's on your phone. News and information. It's on the TV, you go to the gas station and there's a little screen with more news and information. You can't get away from it and I know everybody's sick of all the fake news and fake information and the lies. And, everybody's pointing fingers at everybody else but here's the thing, it starts with you and me. If we can't expect a basic l

Do You Know Why Thomas Paine Wrote Common Sense?

Do you know why Thomas Paine wrote Common Sense? If you never heard of the book Common Sense by Thomas Paine it was the most influential book in American history that made the case for independence from Britain. That’s what the book was about.

A Message To The American People

A book that inspired freedom not just here in America, but around the world. Common Sense begins in letter form. A message to the American people.

If you’ve ever tried to read Common Sense you know it was written on Old English. The language, they way people spoke was very different. There were even words they used that aren’t in use any more.
