    The web browser that is changing the look of free speech - Jeff Bermant, Tusk Browser

    The web browser that is changing the look of free speech - Jeff Bermant, Tusk Browser

    Jeff Bermant is the creator of Tusk Browser, a web browser that was designed to fight censorship and promote free speech online.  



     For nearly 20 years, Jeff has been creating web browsers and online utilities with a focus on privacy and data protection. 



      His previous project, Cocoon, was a browser platform designed to pay users for the data that is used by advertisers to target them.  



     Tusk Browser has seen significant growth recently due to the mainstream news companies self censoring news stories that could potentially affect elections. 



      Jeff explains how his web browser works, his goal of true free speech online, and how the Section 230 law that grants companies the right to cancel users is being used to eliminate the voice of conservatively minded people.

    The $3 Eyeglasses that Can Solve the Vision Issues of 2.5 Billion People with Pastor Greg Wiens of Global Vision 2020

    The $3 Eyeglasses that Can Solve the Vision Issues of 2.5 Billion People with Pastor Greg Wiens of Global Vision 2020

    Greg Wiens is a mennonite pastor in Canada who was inspired by the efforts of a military vet in an issue of National Geographic magazine. 

      While reading an article about the efforts made to offer eyeglasses to people in third world countries, Greg and his partner devised an efficient and cost-effective method of giving eye exams to those less fortunate.  

    The exam takes seconds, and has improved the quality of life for people in underserved communities around the globe.  His program recently went viral on Tiktok when he gave an eye exam and had a pair of glasses prepared in under 3 minutes, at a cost of roughly $3 USD.  

     We discuss how the program came to existence, why we don't hear more about the lack of optometry in the media, Greg's passionate tale of how helping the Congalese citizens of Africa has not only brought communities together, and the sacrifices that have been made to heal a war ravaged community.

    This CEO is giving away free water and wants to give you groceries free too! - Josh Cliffords, Freewater.io

    Josh Cliffords is the CEO of Free Water, an Austin, TX based startup that is the first free beverage company that uses ads placed on their labels to not only pay for their business cost, but also donate at least ten cents to charity per bottle.  

    Not only does his unique idea have potential to flip the beverage industry upside down, he also wants to make free grocery stores as well. 

      Freewater's tiktok has recently outgrown the following of corporate accounts like coke and pepsi. 

     We discuss in-depth how the company offers the water for free, how Josh wants to create grocery stores filled with free groceries, how his product is negatively priced, and the upcoming freewater vending machines that will pay people to drink their free water.

    From online philanthropy to the future of feeding the homeless with cryptocurrency with Ken Kim of Crypto For The Homeless

    From online philanthropy to the future of feeding the homeless with cryptocurrency with Ken Kim of Crypto For The Homeless

    Have you ever wanted to help the less fortunate but maybe don’t have the wherewithal or financial capacity to help others yourself? 

    If so, you need to listen to this episode.

    This is a common occurrence, and unfortunately a tough reality in america.

    How many times have you seen someone begging on a street corner and literally hundreds of cars driving by without any attention given?

    Couple that with the fact that according to a 2021 study by the national law center on homelessness and poverty , nearly 25% of the homeless in america suffer from mental health issues, and it makes it almost understandable for the people driving by.

    My guest tonight saw that need during his time walking back and forth to medical school, and he decided this was a problem that he could help fix.

    Ken Kim is the creator of Crypto For The Homeless, a New Jersey based nonprofit that uses cryptocurrency to reimburse people that buy homeless and houseless people meals.

    We discuss his reasoning for using crypto as a reimbursement, how the usage of crypto has served meals on a global platform, and how you can get involved for free.

    Modern problems require modern solutions, misfits, so let’s get to solving.

    Please welcome, Ken Kim.

    Now, she leads women from the same clubs she danced in, to a life of reform and positvity through Christ.



    She has written over 48 books, and is a celebrated youtube personality, as well as a helath and fitness coach.
