How To Eliminate Half Of Your Audience

There’s some creators who make it a habit to alienate half of their audience, what are they thinking?

Off Season

Isn’t strange when your favorite writer, celeb or podcaster goes out of their way to attack half of their potential audience. In today’s world everything is political down to a comedy sketch to your favorite ice-cream. If you’re not all the way left or right of the political spectrum there are pundits forcing you to pick a side, and not just joining the club but going to war against the other camp. Even on Twitter bios the line is clear, you’re either with me or against me.

Like sheep, many of us believe the mass media, stick to our own kind and cast an evil eye on outsiders. We as earthlings need to rise above the pigeonhole and stop alienating each other.

I’m currently writing Season 5, please continue to spread the word about Poetic Earthlings. Also please buy me a coffee at buymeacoffee.com/poeticearthlings

Suzy And The Enforcer

The mission was simple, follow the list and take out the targets. He obeyed orders without hesitation until he met The Suzy.

Season 4 Finale, Episode 14

A stable government Is the antidote for chaos. Human rights violation and tyranny is the result of unethical leadership.

Poverty stricken nations are not due to a lack of food or resources it stems from the elite. They devise schemes to stay in power and maximize their wealth at the expense of the citizens.

Human life is reduced to numbers on a spreadsheet or objects on a board they could move around.

In this story earthlings survived a nuclear war. Governments have fallen but a new one has risen to maintain peace. Their idea of peace is to force people to comply with their rules.

A stable government must have a healthy democracy where the citizens can speak their minds. We should be able to hold our leaders accountable and to make sure they’re living up to their promises.

In this story the ruling class is shielded from accountability and scrutiny. If one dares to challenge the authority their name will appear on the kill list.

Bullies need to be put in their place or they’ll continue stealing our lunch money or stuffing us in the lockers.

An unethical government is worse than a highschool bully for they could control every facet of our lives.

Life Replica Part 2

My wife continues the story of how I died and how I came to life. I’m still trying to adjust to this body, while she’s trying to overcome her guilt.

Season 4, Episode 13

The best way to cope with your  inevitable demise is not to hide from it. Earthlings occupy their mind by binging on Netflix, working extra hours, taking endless selfies or getting lost in pop culture. We love distractions. 

Hollywood feeds us with endless possibilities and like the hungry hungry  Hippo we  guzzle it down. In our mind there’s no room for the thought of death, there’s more sexy things to think about.

Our brain is a glorious mansion of many rooms. If we’re bored in one we can turn the key and enter another. Death is the room located somewhere in the basement with cobwebs over the locks and chains. We seldom visit it and do our best not to think of it. 

To have a rich, meaningful and spiritual life we need to acknowledge death. What helps me is prayer, reading scriptures and writing stories.

What helps you?

Destroyer Of Worlds

I am Atom, the building block of the universe. I have been spliced and placed into a warhead. You can’t stop me, you can’t ignore me. This is my story before the world burns.

Season 4, Episode 12

They said World War 1 was supposed to be the war to end all wars. After 40 million people died in over 30 nations between 1914 and 1918 you would think earthlings learned their lesson.Unfortunately one global war wasn’t enough to satisfy man’s hunger.So they polished their tanks and planes, counted their missiles and tried again in 1939. 

About twice as many died in the sequel, credit goes to advanced tanks, submarines, Jet fighters and of course the nuclear bomb. I’m not a pacifist if thugs were trying to break into my home to hurt my family you bet I will fight. But I would not go out of my way to burn down their relatives’ homes. 

In 1945 the first nuclear bomb was dropped on Hiroshima Japan. Thousands of ordinary citizens didn’t see it coming. A second bomb was dropped on Nagasaki. They said if it wasn’t for the bombs the war would stretch on, they even said the bombs saved lives. It’s hard for me to believe that, but you may have a different opinion.

Boy Band Conspiracy

What if I told you that the biggest news events are never told, that the government is keeping you fat, amused  and entertained. What your about to hear is what the government doesn’t want you to hear. Are you ready to hear the truth? 

Season 4, episode 11

Despite the title of this episode I don’t believe in most conspiracy theories.These theories rely on pattern recognition and coincidences. You can move letters backwards, replace some with greek letters and spell the mark of the beast.

You can analyze a politician’s hand gestures and conclude he’s a white supremacist.

Our minds instinctually look for patterns that’s how we make sense of the world but our innate pattern recognition could result in false conclusions. Recently I was listening to a Twitter Space all about conspiracies. It was ridiculous and fascinating. The one thing I believe is that the government is trying to distract us.

Some say the boy band craze a few years ago was a calculated attempt to  divert our attention elsewhere. These groups were cleverly stitched together and made to appeal to a wide  demographic. This is just a theory, I’m not telling you to believe it.

What I do believe is that entertainment could be a distraction. How many cat videos can we watch, how much Hollywood gossip can we consume before we throw up? Perhaps the government wants to keep us fat and happy so they can get away with murder.

Under The Dandelions

You try to move but you can’t feel your arms and legs. You try to scream but they can’t hear you. And then you hear a voice, is it an angel or your tortured conscience? 

Season 4, Episode 10

Everyday that you live your building a legacy, every moral decision will live on and affect the ones you love even the ones you don’t.

They may not make a statue out of you  or name a school after you but you will leave a legacy.

My wife said something profound the other day, “one of these children that I’m working with may grow up to be a serial killer.”

Not the most pleasant thought but She’s a childcare worker she sees their strengths and weaknesses. She’s been in the field for over 20 years.

Hopefully She’s wrong however these children will turn into adults and leave a stain or a blessing on humanity. 

The person in this story had it all: he was living the dream, with a fancy position, adorable son and a trophy wife. Outwardly he was a success.

Most of us get caught up on the exterior, we look at someone’s accomplishments and check all the boxes. We make little statues of them in our hearts. 

The interior is often neglected, seldom do we ponder on their contentment. We assume that accomplishments equals contentment while these little gods may be drowning in sorrow.

Wisdom From A Spider

How can a spider change your life?

Season 4, Episode 9 (micro episode)

Also, some professional podcasters listened to my show and gave me some advice. They said I need to introduce myself and give you the listener a snippet of my credentials in order to prove my authority in the field.

It would be arrogant of me to go against the Jedi Council so here goes something.

I’m York Campbell, an author and writer of over 400 stories.I’m also a former British Intelligence officer.

I Climbed mount Everest three times and won the spelling Bee competition at the tender age of seven.I have sleep Apnea, eat gluten-free foods and was a backup dancer for Janet Jackson Rhythm Nation Tour.

I wrote rap songs in the 80’s 90s, shipwrecked off the coast of Maui, and earned brownie points for helping old ladies cross the street.

I’m fluent in over 5 languages but due to a mental relapse I could only speak one.

I’m originally from Jamaica, moved to Canada, abducted by aliens and sent back to Canada to record true stories of extraterrestrial life.

Hopefully that helped.

How Steve Destroyed The world

One lottery ticket, one man’s quest for power. Click play to listen before the world burns.

Season 4, Episode 8

Everyone has the potential to turn into a monster, everyone including you. Some people may clutch their pearls and declare, “I’ll never cross that line” but given the right circumstances you may tip your toe over the line.

It’s sheer arrogance to think your above certain acts of evil, that somehow you’re immune to savagery. If we don’t guard our hearts we can all go astray. Steve was given money, power and attention. He could have used these three things to make a better world.

We may not be as rich or powerful as Steve but we are given certain traits and privileges. Too often we use them to further our agenda. What would happen if we all use these traits to help our fellow earthlings?

This may be a pipe dream since we’re living in the “me” generation. Advertising agencies and modern day  psychological theories focus on the self. We are called to care for the self and maintain a good self image.

Whenever I flip through Twitter or Instagram that’s all I see. Don’t believe me. Take a look at all the selfies. We’re obsessed with ourselves. We buy filtering apps to smoothen our skin and wait impatiently for the likes to climb.

Self has become an all knowing, all seeing, all powerful God. We should  criticize and judge people like Steve, but we should also look into the mirror.
