Revolutionary New Media: Enlightened Podcasts

By Neenah Payne

The US Founding Fathers regarded the media (newspapers then) as “The Fourth Estate” responsible for speaking truth to power, informing the public, and keeping a check on the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches of government. They understood that democracy requires a well-informed public which is possible only with a free press. So, they included Freedom of the Press in the First Amendment of the US Constitution:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. 435 U.S. at 15–16.

The 20th century added radio and TV to the news stream and there were several respected reporters like Walter Cronkite, often cited as “the most trusted man in America” after being so named in an opinion poll. Cronkite received numerous honors including two Peabody Awards, a George Polk Award, an Emmy Award and in 1981 was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Jimmy Carter. Edward R. Murrow  was considered one of journalism’s greatest figures by fellow journalists Eric SevareidEd BlissBill DownsDan Rather, and Alexander Kendrick.

The 20th century introduced investigative TV shows like Meet The Press which first aired on 11/6/47, and Face The Nation, one of the longest-running news programs on the air since it first aired on 11/7/54.  Americans used to pity people behind the Iron Curtain of the Soviet Union who could get reliable news only from Radio Free America.

The 21st century added news from the internet, Big Tech, and social media. Americans pitied people trapped in Communist China where the internet is censored. However, while we have more news sources now — they are increasingly controlled and report the same narratives. Big Tech and social media censorship has been recently revealed. Fortunately, there are many reliable alternative media sites now like Natural Blaze and Activist Post in addition to shows like The Corbett Report and The Highwire with host Del Bigtree. Podcaster Joe Rogan whose audience is larger than that of any TV news show is providing a new type of “news.” It’s a revolutionary, evolutionary new media.

Growing Revolt From The Mockingbird Media

The “Mockingbird Media” provides TV “news.” However, no matter which channel you turn to, you get EXACTLY the same news, word for word — often in EXACTLY the same tone of voice because it is all scripted by a central authority.  Those newscasters function much like robots and could easily be replaced by robots because no individuality, thought, or investigative journalism is required. Much of American TV is now “Brought to you by Pfizer.” The US and New Zealand are the only countries that allow Big Pharma to advertise on TV. There is no independent investigative reporting or analysis.

Why The Joe Rogan Podcast Is So Powerful

Joe Rogan is the host of The Joe Rogan Experience. It is one of the most popular podcasts, distributed exclusively on Spotify. It has a long-form conversation with guests. Rogan explained that he never advertised his podcast. It grew just from word of mouth. He said the only common thread through his podcasts is that he has conversations with people whom he finds interesting. He pointed out that mainstream newscasters, unlike podcasters, don’t have a unique individual perspective. They are just part of the scripted “Mockingbird Media” who are told what to say.

The 7/1/21 New York Times article Joe Rogan Is Too Big to Cancel reported:

“He’s now one of the most consumed media products on the planet. His Spotify deal, estimated at $100 million, speaks to the allure of making audiences feel they’re in on something subversive….In 2019, Mr. Rogan said his podcast was downloaded about 190 million times in a month. Some single episodes have reached tens of millions… The most popular host in cable news, Tucker Carlson of Fox News, might expect about three million live viewers per night….

He is a comedian equally liable to discuss the coronavirus, intelligently, with an epidemiologist and discuss epidemiology, less intelligently, with another comedian. He makes market-moving recommendations for dietary supplements, CBD-infused beverages, nonfiction — an Oprah for the Creatine-taking set or a Schwarzenegger for the Native American history buff, depending on the day. He also says he is not to be trusted as a “respected source of information”…

What is different now — exhilarating to his fans, alarming to others — is the social capital he managed to accumulate while proudly defying the traditional gate-keeping strictures of mainstream fame. It is a story of persistence, timing and a keen feel for the prevailing cultural winds. He started recording himself nearly a dozen years ago for a live web assemblage of hundreds, and people listened. Then more. There were no network censors….“He didn’t need Hollywood,” said Dom Irrera, a comedian and longtime friend. “Joe’s got his own thing.”…

For his sins, he has been burdened with a staggering fortune and a global reach. “The power of what he’s created, he doesn’t have to be afraid of getting canceled,” said Andrew Dice Clay, a friend of Mr. Rogan’s and comedy’s most famously cancelable export of the 1980s and 1990s. “He’s all good.”…

The question now, as Mr. Rogan settles into his kingmaking phase, is how he might like to use his capital. He does seem to like the idea of people coming to him, in every sense, and the power that flows from commanding a platform so large that even those who might feel more comfortable elsewhere — elected officials, scientists, the occasional journalist — recognize that ignoring him would be irresponsible…. Friends have teased him about being his generation’s Johnny Carson, the host whose blessing could mint stars overnight, and his new address has already produced a gravitational drift among comics of a certain ilk…..

And so, there is now a kind of Rogan sub-economy of comedian-podcasters whom he helped gain exposure, their public personas likewise built in part around scorning political correctness and the institutions associated with it — a heady cultural space where it can feel as though left and right converge.”

The 2/17/22 New York Times article Spotify Bet Big on Joe Rogan. It Got More Than It Counted On says,

The deal that brought his podcast to Spotify is said to be worth over $200 million, more than was previously known…. With tens of millions of listeners for its buzziest episodes, “The Joe Rogan Experience” is Spotify’s biggest podcast not only in the United States but in 92 other markets, with a following that hangs on every word of his hourslong shows….

Since the show’s debut in 2009, Mr. Rogan, a mixed martial arts enthusiast and comedian, had made himself into a podcasting heavyweight, landing an eclectic range of guests and engaging them in freewheeling, uncensored conversations…Mr. Rogan’s show was one of the biggest success stories in podcasting, but for years it was not available on Spotify. In May 2020, Spotify wooed him with an offer he couldn’t refuse…. Spotify’s stock price jumped 17 percent the week the deal was announced…

The Joe Rogan Experience is the opposite of the Mockingbird Media because it is personal, unscripted, and free form. Rogan is courageous, independent, creative, genuine, authentic, pioneering, disciplined, humble, confident, strong, virtuous, honest, open, and inquisitive, So, the podcast is original, open-ended, nuanced, and creative. Rogan serves as guide, role model, leader with an inspiring personal discipline. Because Rogan is so widely-read and well-informed with a curiosity that spans many diverse topics, watching his show is a form of very entertaining education and enlightenment. He is a very insightful interviewer who brings out the best in each guest.

Joe Rogan and Russell Brand had a fascinating three-hour conversation on March 2 in show #1948 which  covered a wide range of topics. Brand pointed out that 9/11 led to surveillance and COVID led to compliance. He said “elites” (like Big Pharma, Big Banks) are benefitting from crises that harm everyone else. Brand explained the connection between discipline and spirit by saying Christ’s followers were called “disciples.” He said a culture that ignores spirituality becomes meaninglessness.

Video: Part 1 and Part 2

Brand  said, “The institutions are hollow because they’re no values there. The culture celebrates many things that are pretty vacuous. It’s a war against nature, against human traits.”

The 3/16/22 article by Dr. Joseph Mercola Joe Rogan and Russell Brand on Censorship, Control and Media says:

Brand notes: “I heard this thing that that guy, Pavlov of the dogs, you know, he did other experimentation, the results of which were that 20% of people are highly susceptible to hypnosis, and similarly highly susceptible to placebos … It will be effective under … the right conditions … and the same with hypnosis, and 20% of people will not be hypnotized and will not respond to placebos. 

The middle 60% is where propaganda operates. How many of that middle 60% can you persuade?

And I was just astonished that authoritarianism could suddenly be repackaged in this manner, that authoritarianism could tell you that war is a good thing, that authoritarianism can tell you that Big Pharma is a good thing,  that being locked in your home is good.”

The COVID Narrative Bell Curve

The Bell Curve comes up in an amazing number of circumstances whether talking about students, political views, hypnosis, COVID, etc. Why Was David Icke Banned From 26 European Nations? shows that the legendary British author David Icke discussed,

Group #1: Those who mindlessly accept anything authority tells them without question… Group #2: Those that don’t want to do what authority tells them, but they are terrified of not doing so because they fear the consequences…Then, there’s Group #3 that has ended every tyranny in history — the true Renegades of this Human Family — those who see that they are being lied to, who see where this is going and refuse to cooperate. The people who understand the most powerful word in the English language — ‘NO! NO! NO!’ English language or any other language: ‘NO! No! Not doing it! Not cooperating!’

Belgian Professor Mattias Desmet, author of The Psychology of Totalitarianism, discussed the importance of the Bell Curve in his video interview below with Tucker Carlson. He shows that about 20% of people believed the official COVID narrative without question, about 60% went along with aspects of the narrative even if they had doubts, and another 20% totally rejected all aspects of the narrative from the beginning.

The Epidemic of Sudden Deaths

The 3/18/23 article by Dr. Joseph Mercola “Epidemic of Sudden Adult Deaths Finally Made News” (now on his paid Substack) links to Tucker Carlson’s video interview below with Edward Dowd, author of “Cause Unknown” The Epidemic of Sudden Deaths in 2021 and 2022.

Tucker’s Fox News interviews have much the same authentic flavor of good podcasts.

Media Defines Reality: Historic Power Shift

When Rogan focuses on a topic — like The Great Reset and the global takeover by Klaus Schwab’s World Economic Forum as he did on 2/20/22 — millions of people who may not have heard of it suddenly get interested.  It’s a wakeup call to humanity.

This is a 2-minute preview of the show: Watch Joe Rogan Get Red Pilled On The WEF, Klaus Schwab, and Digital ID’s aka The Great Reset “WATCH — Maajid Nawaz explains that people in power shut down debate to create a void where reason, logic, and truth no longer exist, but where power can define reality.” For a 15-minute snip of the show watch: The Great Reset | Maajid Nawaz BLOWS Joe Rogan’s Mind Explaining Klaus Schwab’s Agenda

At 2:15 in the 3-hour show Joe Rogan Left Speechless on WEF infiltrating Governments, The Great Reset Is Now Out In the Open, Nawaz explains that we are in a pivotal moment in history because of the ways in which the internet and cryptocurrencies are decentralizing information and money — and thus power. He says this is similar in the shift in power caused by the introduction of the printing press. He said decentralization of media is causing a critical shift because whoever define truth defines reality.

The Powers That Be who are losing the ability to control the narrative must clamp down to retain power. He says, “So, it’s an internal civil war over truth and over information.” The conflict is not about Left or Right. It is about Centralization or Decentralization. He says that humanity is facing a crossroads now — total centralization (slavery) or decentralization (freedom).

At 2:41, Nawaz discusses Klaus Schwab’s Great Reset and his infiltration of governments with his “Young Global Leaders” like Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada and Mark Rutte, PM of The Netherlands.

Dr. Robert Malone: Fifth Generation Warfare

Aubrey Marcus is another very sensitive podcaster. Episodes with Aubrey Marcus shows that he was interviewed 16  times by Joe Rogan between 2014-2016. In the video below, Marcus interviewed Dr. Robert Malone, inventor of the mRNA and DNA vaccine core platform technology used in the Pfizer and Moderna COVID shots. Dr. Malone is the President of the Global COVID Summit of 17,000 doctors.  They discuss the “Fifth Generation Warfare” we are going through now in which countries are fighting wars of information — often against their own citizens. It’s an attempt to control the narrative and perception of reality.

Pandemic Post Mortem: The Truth Vs. The Narrative with Dr. Robert Malone 2/22/23

At the start of the pandemic, Dr. Robert Malone had faith in the medical system he had worked within for decades. When vaccines were approved, he got double jabbed. To this day, he is still trying to heal from the injuries he received as a consequence of that decision.

Dr. Robert Malone has been courageously outspoken during these trying times, and as a result has been mercilessly attacked, slandered, and censored. This despite the fact that he is an internationally recognized scientist/physician and the original inventor of mRNA vaccination as a technology, DNA vaccination, and multiple non-viral DNA and RNA/mRNA platform delivery technologies with about 100 scientific publications and whose work has been cited over 12,000 times.

On this podcast, we discuss the latest data and talk about a wide range of topics, including; the mechanisms of toxicity, 5th generation warfare, and what it means to be a warrior in our time.

Dawn of The Age of Aquarius

Podcasters like Rogan have a rare depth and breadth of knowledge, wisdom, and character. They are pioneers leading toward a new vision of reality and embody a higher potential for humanity. The fact that Rogan has such a vast audience shows that many people are hungry for this depth of insight, guidance, and leadership — for the truth. These podcasters are among the first signs of the shift to a higher consciousness and culture in which people are wise, informed, ethical, courageous, and independent while being cooperative.

Perhaps The Fifth Dimension said it best in 1969 with their hit song “Aquarius/ Let the Sunshine In.” We are witnessing the dawn of a new age. The 5th Dimension combined two songs from the iconoclastic ’60s musical Hair – this is actually a “show tune” that became an essential part of any discussion of the Hippie movement, anti-war protests, free love and psychedelia. The song spent six weeks on top of the charts in 1969, the number 2 song of that year and is considered one of the top 100 pop/rock songs of all time. It won the Grammy Award in 1970, the group’s second one, after “Up, Up and Away” won it two years earlier.

Dwapara Yuga: Return Of The Light

In his talk with Russell Brand, Rogan referred to this as the shift from Kali Yuga to Dwapara Yuga of the East Indian Yuga cycles. Each person who raises his/her consciousness now helps speed this shift.

Since The Yugas Cycle is not mentioned in our educational system or corporate media, most Westerners don’t realize the Earth is going through a profound shift that provides a great deal of hope and guidance. We left  Kali Yuga (Iron Age/Dark Age/Material Age) about 1700 AD and are increasingly entering Dwapara Yuga (Bronze Age/Energy Age/Mental Age) — a period of higher consciousness. In the West, this is called a shift from the Age of Pisces to the Age of Aquarius. Each age lasts about 2,400 years.

The Yugas: Keys to Understanding Our Hidden Past, Emerging Present and Future Enlightenment

Amazon Description

With far-reaching changes happening on virtually a daily basis, many are wondering if we are due for a world-changing global shift, and what the future holds for mankind. Paramahansa Yogananda (author of the classic Autobiography of a Yogi) and his teacher, Sri Yukteswar, offered key insights into this subject nearly a century ago. They presented a fascinating explanation of the rising and falling eras that our planet cycles through every 24,000 years.

According to their teachings, we have recently passed through the low ebb in that cycle and are moving forward to a higher age—an Energy Age that will revolutionize the world. They declared that we would live in a time of great social and spiritual change, and that much of what we believed to be fixed and true—our entire way of looking at the world—would ultimately be transformed and uplifted.

In The Yugas, Joseph Selbie and David Steinmetz present substantial and intriguing evidence from the findings of historians and scientists that demonstrate the truth of Yukteswar and Yogananda’s revelations.
