Food for Thought

Hey there!

It’s been a while since I’ve updated this page, so I figured I’d prelude our official launch with a little tidbit to showcase what we here at the Simplify Podcast stand for. A new (yes, Christmas-themed) episode will be released in the coming week, so I hope you savor this appetizer while I work on the main course. Enjoy!

Food for Thought

November 13 2015 / An Open Letter to Terrorism

I originally planned to make an episode around Sudan, but given the attacks that occurred over the past 24 hours, I figured it would be more fitting to simply express my thoughts regarding this tragedy and others like it.

Some Bonus Food (Well, Hummus) for Thought:

Salutations!

We have returned to the airwaves to bring you more in-depth but not too deep enough to barrage your brain reporting! This week, we’ll cover the Trans-Pacific Partnership, its contents, and the criticisms behind it. Enjoy!

We’re Back!

Hello Everyone!

We (as for the moment, I) have returned to making the Simplify Podcast. In addition, we are now featured on the St. Francis High School Radio Station! I hope to gain more avid listeners and make even better (and more consistent) podcasts within the coming year. If you’re interested in joining the team, shoot an email over to simplifypodcast@gmail.com.

Next episode comes out on Monday, so prepare your mind for the mind-blowing spectacle that is the Simplify Podcast.
