News, current events, history, and politics... without the slant of the mainstream. On the Middle Theory podcast, Micah Hanks provides an independent, nonpartisan look at what's happening in the world, and always with a nod to the lessons history can teach us. The tone is often dark, but with a penchant for humor, aimed at creating images in the mind and colors in the listener's ear while diving into the issues of today. Hanks takes an approach that is skeptical and highly caffeinated, asking hard questions about news, politics, cultural trends, historical events, and other relevant topics. Middle Theory is willing to ask questions and address viewpoints that many listeners will disagree with, but also cause them to think critically and challenge their own ideas and ideologies. Join us for a mental foray into the "radical center" on Middle Theory.

Actually Balanced

Unlike certain organizations that claim to be fair and balanced, Micah et al. do a great job actually staying as unbiased as possible, confronting their biases when they appear, and even playing devil's advocate to understand as much as possilbe about the topics. Speaking of topics, they stretch from current events to hisrotical information, (actual) conspiracy, and fabulous cocktail recipes.
