    Affirmative Action’s Dirty Little Secret, COVIDiots, & More

    Affirmative Action’s Dirty Little Secret, COVIDiots, & More

    I'm tired. I'm tired of selfish individuals putting THEIR personal beliefs above the well-being of others. We used to act as a society. Societies help each other. Societies have each other's backs. Whatever we are right now is not a society. Listen to this episode for my full rant on COVIDiots (those too selfish to help other's in a time when hundreds of thousands of our citizens are dying), the fact that white men are actually having it worse in college than any other group, the absolute stupidity of our visa system, and the fact that Californians are still waiting for clean water.

    Joe Biden Is a #2 President

    Joe Biden Is a #2 President

    We have #1 presidents and we have #2 presidents. Sorry to break it to you, but Joe Biden is a #2 president. Trump was also a #2 president. This is the problem with our current political system - we have a lack of #1 people running things and Joe Biden exemplifies this right now.
    More of my two cents on this episode: China & the environment, MLB & social justice/pretentious fans, we are killing our youth, and the Supreme Court.
    Also, apologies for today's audio. Our microphone ran into some issues. It will be fixed by the next episode.

    Kikkoman Invades India, Romania in Collapse, and More

    Welcome to the first episode of The Blaine DeSantis Show! Our rebranding is officially here. If this is your first time here, welcome. This show was previously called "Snapshots," but I felt that a name change was appropriate as my podcast encapsulates more topics than history.
    Today we take a look at my Views on The News.
    -1 hot dog takes away 36 minutes of your life
    -Austalia subsidizes coal and gas-fired power plants
    -Nantucket hypocrites strike again, this time saying no to wind turbines
    -Stingless bees make unique honey with unique properties
    -We discovered the northern-most island in the world
    -The Romanian government is on the brink of collapse
    -India is being invaded by the soy sauce company Kikkoman

What a great find!

Snapshots is a fantastic podcast. I enjoy Blaine’s approach to the material. I feel like I’m listening to a modern-day Paul Harvey. There’s no cynicism and no agenda. It’s just a fun and informative addition to my week.

Fun trivia podcast!

This is such a fun and educational podcast! The host Blaine does a great job. I enjoy the short bits of info, trivia, and book recommendation. It’s fun hearing about things I’ve never heard or new about - like the history behind the parking meter! You’ll learn something through this show!
