    Whatever happened to Julian Assange?

    Whatever happened to Julian Assange?

    A few years back, Julian Assange was a household name in the West. The founder and face of Wikileaks, one of the world's most well-known destinations for leaks of classified information, Assange was hailed as a hero by some and a villain by others. And, whether you think he's a soldier in the war for transparency or some sort of super-villain, there's no denying that many people in power wanted him neutralized by any means possible. In our last episode, we left Assange at the Ecuadorian embassy in London, where he'd been living, and fighting extradition charges, for several years. Then he seemed to disappear from the headlines. So what happened?

    Forced Assimilation of Native People

    Forced Assimilation of Native People

    For centuries the U.S. government conspired to persecute, attack and marginalize the native population. When open warfare became too expensive, some factions of the government proposed a different approach -- what if, they wondered, we erase native culture? This inspired a massive industry of forced assimilation. Thousands of children were forced into boarding schools where they were taught to act more 'European' while being abused, exploited and placed into forced labor. Tune in to learn more about the conspiracy of forced assimilation, and how its long-reaching consequences affect the country in the modern day.

Just started listening

I’m so glad I can go back and binge listen. The hosts really delve deep into their topics.

New Podcast Story

Hi All,

I was hoping you guys can cover what’s going on with Kim Jong-Un recently, his disappearance, how China can potentially use North Korea as a buffer, etc. I know it could possibly be early for this episode considering the unknown circumstances regarding Kim Jong-Un, but the political component, especially in regards to possible Chinese power and US reduced power, it seems important to know what stuff they don’t want us to know about this topic.

Best,

Alex

Solid podcast

Very enjoyable, I like the fact that they just present facts and try to remove personal opinions as much as they can.
