LISTEN NOW… Can people control your mind with social media? From Cambridge Analytica and Russian Facebook trolls to platforms de-platforming controversial creators, there’s a deep concern about outside forces manipulating and meddling with our heads on social media. Are these problems the growing pains of the most revolutionary publishing invention since the printing press, or the seeds of something much more troubling in the future of tech?

LISTEN NOW… Do you have a complicated relationship with food and exercise? With more Americans succumbing to the “illnesses of wealth” like heart disease and diabetes, something is obviously wrong with the way our food and fitness culture operates. So what’s the answer?
Your hosts discuss their personal history and experience with different fitness and diet regimes, and work through the difference between a diet and a lifestyle. While this week’s episode is a bit of a detour from our regular subject matter, at its core it’s about self ownership and working to make life better. We hope you’ll find something useful!

America’s imagination has been captured by the “miracle” of the Scandinavian “third way” – a mix of socialist safety net policies and market-friendly policies that seem to have helped them avoid the worst excesses of socialism while continuing to grow their economy.
But is the story really that simple? Your hosts explore the real story of Scandinavian socialism, focusing on Sweden.

Find out if the Scandinavian third way is the future for New Hampshire on this week’s episode of Told You So!

Carla Gericke, past president of the Free State Project, joins me for an update from New Hampshire and to discuss some important local issues that affect many communities. She has been at the forefront of a campaign against surveillance cameras, as well as securing the release of a list of bad cops — a list that a major state official is trying to keep suppressed.
In the inaugural episode of the Told You So Podcast, Brinck and Carla take a deep look at the news documentary “Seattle is Dying” – homelessness, drug policy, and out of control city governments are at the heart of the story, and there are more than a few lessons that Manchester can learn from what cities on the West coast are experiencing right now.
