    The Anatomy of a Fact

    The Anatomy of a Fact

    In this episode, we examine the ”fact-checkers.”

    They claim to be non-partisan... is this true? And who funds them?

    We also talk about how words are often manipulated to turn a truth into a lie.


    Why did we decide to talk about fact-checkers? Because truth matters.

    We live in a world that tries to lead with lies, but freedom is not found in lies, it is found in truth.


    Truth has no agenda. Lies always do.

    Socially Acceptable Corruption? An Interview With Alec Zeck

    Socially Acceptable Corruption? An Interview With Alec Zeck

    In this episode, Rita and Cecily interview Alec Zeck, of Health Freedom For Humanity. We focus in on the corruption and ”in-breeding” within the CDC, FDA, government, media and investors.


    We talk criminal activity, gas-lighting, hypocrisy and the white-washed veneer of these agencies when they‘re presented to the public.

    A Testimony, a Parable, and a Call to Stay Awake (and no, I don‘t mean woke).

    A Testimony, a Parable, and a Call to Stay Awake (and no, I don‘t mean woke).

    In this episode, you‘ll hear Cecily‘s testimony of what God has done in her life. We‘ll talk about what a responsibility, blessing and privilege it is to be entrusted with kingdom work by God here on earth, and we‘ll talk about why it‘s so important to stay awake at the spiritual wheel. We‘ll also find out why Cecily liked hanging out by the garbage bin as a child.

    87 Years Worth of Wisdom...

    87 Years Worth of Wisdom...

    In today‘s episode, Cecily interviews her Grandma, who really isn‘t even sure what a  podcast is. The conversation really gets rolling once Grandma gets used to the microphone.

    The Boom Clap Podcast is about values, and many of our recent episodes have focused hard on controversial current events and how our values shape how we think about them and function in culture.

    Today, we‘re slowing it down and looking to the past to glean wisdom for the future. We talk about:

    + Pioneer life in the early 1900‘s

    + Marriage and Parenting

    + Losing a child

    + Living Through War


    + Advice for today‘s generation


    + Legacy


    + Tragedy and Joy

    + Trusting God

    + Living With Purpose

    Live Not By Lies

    Live Not By Lies

    In this episode,  the essay Live Not By Lies by Alexander Solzhenitsyn is read and discussed.

    Rita and Cecily have both become fascinated by the life and writings of this man, and they applied many current events to his thoughts.

    Much can be learned from history and those who have been through things that we have not.

    This is amongst our most passionate of episodes as we commit to live not by lies, but fully in truth.

    Orwell vs. Huxley: Which Dystopia Will It Be?

    Orwell vs. Huxley: Which Dystopia Will It Be?

    Orwell feared a world of external oppression, and Huxley a world of internal oppression. Orwell feared the things we hate would rule us, Huxley feared it would be the things we love.


    In this episode, we dissect the 2 different visions of a dystopic future. We chat about the influences of each that we see in our current culture, & consider whether a utopia could ever be achieved using either of these methods.


    What does it really take to hold people captive? Fear? Or ever-growing passivity?

All about truth!

Love the important things that these ladies shine light on and the focus on truth! I also enjoy how they wrap up each episode with biblical application. Thank-you Rita and Cecily!

Hope, Truth and Values

If you're looking for conversations that are challenging, fitting for current times, and fact based (with their amazing links to dig into after listening!) this is the podcast for you.

These times are overwhelming, isolating and disorienting. Cecily & Rita break down information in digestible, examinable pieces, while tying God's love and hope in, in a practical and masterful way.

I'm so grateful to have this podcast in my toolbox to help ground myself with Hope, Truth and Values!
