Rabbit Holes and Lucky Charms

Look around you, the world is not as it seems. Everything is connected by a single thread. Sometimes we go down rabbit holes and lose are purpose, other times we find lucky charms along the way.

Season 2, Episode 9

This is the most unusual episode of season 2 so far and I couldn’t have created it without the help of Yewande Akinse, Mihai Brinas, Matt Seeley and the man of mystery Dark Samaritan.

Their contribution elevated this concept from fleeting thoughts in my mind, to a tangible experience that goes beyond this world.

White Authors, Special Bonus Episode

I met a white dude on the bus reading a book about African slavery, I felt uncomfortable but not for the reasons you may think.

Season 2, Episode 8

My wife wants to trace are family tree, it would take a long time since our history is covered with invisible ink.

This episode is not intended to make my White brothers and sisters feel guilty, keep in mind we are all Earthlings created by a Divine Architect. White Authors was written to explore unhealthy stereotypes of the black race and free our minds from historic ignorance.

Canadian Peacekeepers

He found himself in the middle of hell. Bullets ricocheted, bombs exploded but there was a voice on the other side of reality desperately trying to get his attention.

Season 2, Episode 7

When I was younger I thought about joining the Canadian Military, the noble task of protecting the country and exporting Canadian values around the world was enticing.

The closest I came to wearing the uniform was when my best friend joined Air Cadets.
My two or three day stay was spent being barked at by the drill instructor and forced to do push-ups, I suck at push-ups.

Sometimes we could have a romantic or an ideologistic view of the Military, perhaps it’s just me. But after quitting Air Cadets in less than a week it confirms that I’m not military material.

Aiden’s Escape

Aiden’s community was surrounded by four glass walls. No one imagined a universe outside of the confinements. His people’s two year lifespan consisted of procreation and survival. Aiden wanted to go beyond his limits, his only hope is to breach the wall.

Season 2, Episode 6

Do you feel that your life is one continuous maze with dead ends and detours? Social media is all about displaying our strengths and not our weaknesses. Aiden’s Escape will go beyond the walls to see how we’re manipulated and controlled.

There was a time when government officials and people in authority were respected, we took their word as the gospel and pledged our allegiance.

However, in this current time our vanguards of truth have went astray, not just the politicians but the media as well.

Is humanity under a microscope, controlled and tested by the corporate elites?
I’m not a conspiracy theorist, sometimes I like to stir the pot and ask questions.

It is healthy to questions things, to be critical but not a cynic. Challenging are basic beliefs and assumptions sharpens the mind.
When we forfeit are tools of reasoning we hold are mental doors open and accept every half-baked theory that flutters by.

Hillside Crosses, Bonus Episode

This is a story of a modern day Mr. Scrooge. He was haunted by his former employees that hung from the Hillside Crosses.

Mr. Bender, a Senior Vice President at a major medical supply company, made it standard practice to fire as many employees as H.R. would allow before the end of the year as a cost-saving
measure.

His goal was to cut just enough
employees to save money, but not so many that production suffered. Every December, it was the same: fire and count the savings.

And each year, he was getting more and more efficient at his “corporate game” until one day, his game changed thanks to an old wooden cross and the grace of an
employee he once mercilessly fired.

your tiny body made it across the finish line. This is Your story.

Season 2, Episode 5

Everyone matters, from an unformed fetus, to your grandmother in her golden years.
Human life is not irrelevant or random.

We are not insignificant space particles drifting aimlessly.

In are disposable, secular culture there’s a tendency to ignore the sacred.
Everything about us is sacred.
It’s important to remember within this Cannibalistic society.

Goldfish Suicide Letter

Life sometimes feels like a fishbowl,
you swim in one direction bump your head and swim the other way.
This goldfish had enough and decided to jump.

Season 2, Micro Episode

Goldfish’s Suicide Letter was written in a dismal time in my life.
I felt like a Goldfish in my small bachelor apartment as I contemplated the worse.

If you can relate to this story seek help, depression grows when you remain silent.

We need eachother, as the scriptures says, “man is not meant to be alone.”
And as John Donne phrased it, “No man is an Island.”

E.C.G And A Bar Of Soap

Slipped on a bar of soap, struck my head and rushed to the hospital. In and out of consciousness as I heard my family plotting the unthinkable.

Season 2, Episode 4

To test your humanity you have to be pushed to the limit. Living in a perpetual state of luxury does not heighten spiritual awareness, on the contrary it could make you docile and impotent.

In our current North American culture we are in pursuit of the happy pill, or we desire for the Government to pay our bills, wipe our nose and take out the trash.

Whenever a nation becomes wealthy and at relative peace her citizens become apathetic and lethargic. Since there’s no wars to fight and famine to vanquish we become selfish and small minded.

Rather than giving ourselves over to creative projects and uplifting our fellow Earthlings we try to find blemishes.
Instead of forgiveness and understanding we are quick to press the cancel button.

In this story are main protagonist is on the verge of cancellation. On the surface he’s an awful Earthling who only cares about himself. However, before we reach for the cancel button we need to look at ourselves in the mirror.

100 Year Old Churchgoing Chain-smoker

Charles Enigma, is the author of Return to Glory, he’s also a freedom fighter, a war hero and a complicated earthling. I invited him to my show but he slapped his bible across my face.

Season 2, Episode 3

Old charlie fought the Natzies in WW2, he stood beside Dr. King in the civil rights movement.

He was an intellectual giant, a straight shooter, and a realist.
As for me, I was his fanboy and consumed all of his books. It wasn’t just ink on paper it was fire and blood. His words shifted you into a different mindset.

I’m not sure why he slapped me across the face with his bible.
Old Charlie didn’t understand podcasting, his life was simple and he was determined to the end to keep it that way.
