    Politics Obscured

    Politics Obscured

    Welcome to Clearly Obtuse where we experiment with found objects and create a soundscape. It is not our goal to provide answers, rather we are here to present the known, the understood and make it into something unknown, uncomfortable and challenge your perceptions. Hey I am Tea Alan and I will be your untrustworthy beacon on this journey. I have always wondered what an avant garde podcast would sound like, so here you go, my attempt. If you get offended, then you probably are coming into this with your own preconceived notions. If you want to find a way to rule the world, go read Sun Zu or Lao Tzu, if you just want to listen, well you are about to get confused. Some of you are blindly patriotic to your system of government, we will help you see through warped goggles. The United States has 2 major political parties, some would argue there is a lot of gridlock for the past few decades, some would say that it was set up this way so no one party gets to much power. Just think if we had more than 2 parties, lets try 9 parties that have parliamentary representation and 12 other parties that are either unregistered or have no representatives in the parliament. You may say to yourself; nothing would ever get done. In some places this is not true, they have more than 2 political parties and get the work of the people done, or the work of their financial supporters, just like here in the States. Can you handle more than two parties? Take a listen.
    Our thanks, but for sure they aren't thanking us, are the main 9 parties in Finland. Here are their websites
    Social Democrats: https://sdp.fi/fi/
    Finns Party: https://www.perussuomalaiset.fi/
    National Coalition Party: https://www.kokoomus.fi/
    Centre Party: http://keskusta.fi/
    Green League: https://www.vihreat.fi/
    Left Alliance: http://vasemmisto.fi/
    Swedish Peoples Party: http://www.sfp.fi/  
    Christian Democrats: http://www.kristillisdemokraatit.fi/
    Movement Now: https://liikenyt.fi/liike-nytin-periaatteet/
    So there you have it, 9 parties, did you find yourself rooting for one or more of these parties? Did you find commonality between your beliefs and some of the goals that these parties desire? Are you sure the ideas you cherish are your own or are they your interpretation of what your political leanings are. Do you even know what you believe or want. You have choices because as we said there are two major political parties in the States, but there are others. You just don’t vote for them because you think they can’t win.

    Heroes and Teachers Are Not Immune

    Ever wonder what it takes to make a podcast. Yeah me too. Here are some ideas, but just know you can throw all of these out the window and just do it your way. 
    Thank you for all the unwitting contributors. ere are their websites.
    Clearly Obtuse is a production of ADF Kimo Productions in a joint with Gagglepod. At Gagglepod.com we help creatives tell their story through the power of podcasting. Gagglepod does not endorse any of these ideas, maybe they should, perhaps they should write a book. Are you an expert, you could be featured here on Clearly Obtuse, for ridicule or misinformation.

    Reviewing the Reviewers : Zippo Lighter Fluid

    Reviewing the Reviewers : Zippo Lighter Fluid

    Have you ever wondered about Zippo lighter fluid? Do you actually read Amazon reviews? Have you laughed your fool head off when reading a review?  This episode will provide you with some interesting takes on reviews. Are you a review novelist, have you thought about starting your career in being a reviewer? Did you know about lighter fluid sommelier and the hidden school behind it? How about the cabal we exposed on this episode. 
    I would say to enjoy this episode, but you probably should just take notes. Be afraid, be very afraid. Lighter fluid is one of the most divisive products out there, very little room for middle ground.
