    Low Stakes Hot Takes

    Low Stakes Hot Takes

    We all have that one opinion — that firmly held, low stakes, non-political belief. You know the one. It's usually met with (low stakes) outrage whenever you dare to say it out loud. Well, we asked you, our listeners, to share your low stakes hot takes with us and, oh boy, did you deliver.

    Bonus: 'Brainwashed'

    Bonus: 'Brainwashed'

    This past Spring, Endless Thread released a series called “Madness: The Secret Mission for Mind Control and the People Who Paid the Price.” If you missed it, you should go back and listen!

    A new series from CBC Podcasts, "Brainwashed," offers fresh perspective on the same topic: a powerful doctor who conducted disturbing, CIA-funded mind-control experiments on patients at a prestigious psychiatric hospital in Montreal.

    We recently talked to the host of "Brainwashed," Michelle Shepherd, for this bonus episode. We wanted to compare notes with another reporter who has gone deep on this story and swap takeaways.

Diggin this app ,

Do your research

Just listened to Girls Trip but had to stop not even half way through as I couldn’t stand to listen to another minute of condescending closed mindedness of a very real issue. Qanon is not the only group that believes these things to be true about what’s happening to children. Many celebrities have come out and stated these things to be true as well as many other organizations, truth seekers, etc. There is in fact plenty of proof but for those who only watch/believe MSM you will never take the time to open your eyes and think for yourself. Child sex trafficking/satanic cult rituals is very much a thing and has been going on for years. It is irresponsible to downplay such a horrific issue happening in our world.
