Over the past few years we have become increasingly frustrated by the lack of objective and responsible news coverage - so we decided to launch a podcast where we take a (mostly) objective look at news from all sides of the political spectrum and try to sort through the fluff to see what is actual news, and what is full-on bias.
We say 'mostly' unbiased because if we're being honest, we all have biases. And that's alright. But it's not alright to pretend like we don't have them and try to push agendas instead of journalism.
So take a listen, and hopefully you don't want to throw your phone out of the car window on your way to work as you do. Because that's how we often feel with our news sources.
Ray was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. After working in non-profit for many years he launched a startup that landed on Shark Tank. Since exiting that business, he's been focused on launching a technology called Xogo, where the mission is to create technologies that enable people of all abilities to interact with the world on their own terms. You can find out more about Xogo here, and you can see a video of what they do here.
As a continuation of the podcast, we want to invite honest conversation and real research to the news. Many people only read the headlines of stories, but we encourage everyone to look deeper.
We'll also have articles where people with both liberal and conservative viewpoints explain why they believe what they do, and what their end goals are for their policies.
To have healthy dialogue with people of all backgrounds, promoting open discussions between people of differing viewpoints, and to research the news to search for truths.
