*South Seattle grassroots level podcast seeks volunteers of all experience levels*

  • Perfect for students, professionals or anyone with the interest and ability.
  • Get a chance to exercise your on-air talent!
  • Create and perform your own on-air segment (if you choose to do so).
  • Co-create and co-host episodes or shows (if you choose to do so).
  • Your contributions will be fully credited and acknowledged on our website, as well as on all applicable podcast episodes.

Are you someone who doesn’t fear controversy and believes its application can create positive changes and facilitate healing? Would you agree that controversy is imperative for unveiling what the world needs most in these dire times?

Do you believe that not nearly enough is being done to ensure the well-being of our future, and that the world as a whole is at stake?

Do you believe that a truly loving, compassionate and harmonious world is only possible through radical change?

Do you believe that enriching opportunity and quality of life is something that should be afforded equally to all?

Do you adhere to a calling or truth greater than that of anything ever constructed or established by mankind alone?

Are you someone who wants attention given to topics of urgency that are ignored, glossed over or easily dismissed in our current culture? Topics such as: Human And Non-Human Rights/Abolition, Veganism, Food Matters (quality, availability, etc.), Toxins, Pollutant And Chemical Alternatives, Energy Alternatives, Reduction, Recycling, Reusing/Resisting The Use Of Matter/Materials, Anti-Consumerism Advocacy, Population Advocacy, Anti-War (Peace) Advocacy, Financial System Alternatives, Race & Prejudice Matters, Spirituality, Faith (both religious and non-religious)… to name but a few?

We are looking for people who don’t take things at face value and who can think BIG.

Someone who isn’t naïve or has their head in the sand regarding life’s realities and hurdles, but rather has the conviction that any one of us can make improvements and therefore a positive difference.

Are you someone who is inspired by and motivated to imitate (or otherwise honor) individuals who have been called controversial yet made positive differences in our world? People such as: Buckminster Fuller, Mark Twain, Martin Luther King, Nikola Tesla, Peace Pilgrim, Fred Rogers, George Carlin, Mohandas Gandhi, Bill Hicks, César Chávez, Gary Francione, Amy Goodman, Cindy Sheehan, Colleen Patrick-Goudreau, Coretta Scott King, Gary Yourofsky, Joan Dunayer… to name but a few?

We do not expect to overshadow the great work any of these pioneering individuals and groups of individuals are doing, or have done throughout our history.

We are considering digging a bit differently, which could result in presenting facts and potential solutions in manners that are different from the expected “norm”.

We intend to look for the root source of most, if not all, of these topical areas in an effort to discover when and where they began, why and how they missed the mark, and if an actual reachable remedy exists.

We intend to seek out the interconnectedness of all things and learn how each singularity affects — whether directly or indirectly — the greater whole. We’ll look at how the current flow of “accepted” ideas and actualities regarding human violence, culture, tradition, racism, rights, economy, health, capitalism, corporatism, spirituality, quality of life, love, and happiness tie together as unacknowledged, detrimental strongholds. We want to expose such influential ties and challenge them by applying critical thinking skills. We do not want to fail in this endeavor; we stand against that which aims to convince individual/collective thought to both accept and cause intentional harm.

Are you still with us here? Great!
