Episode 55 – “Governor Gaslight” – The State of the State and the “One Minnesota” Overton Window

 

On the heels of Governor Tim Walz's State of the State Address, Kip and Max discuss the pillars he discussed, legislative promises, and overt spending/taxing promises. On a deeper level, the guys talk about the legacy of the Walz administration and how Minnesota moderates and even Republicans are having the Overton Window shift to a socialist state.

 

Is Tim Walz a moderate? Does he represent ALL of Minnesota? Or is he a wolf in sheep’s clothing? His agenda and his state of the state reveal his motives. LISTEN IN.

Episode 46 - An Interview with Mark Blaxill, Author - On Vaccines and Autism

 

Max sits down with Mark Blaxill, an author, businessman, and researcher, to discuss his work in autism research - specifically, his work in drawing a link between vaccines and autism. This is a VERY controversial topic and we wanted to explore a counter-cultural view of the way we view western medicine, alarmingly-high autism rates, and a voice that's been marginalized within the medical community.

Mark Blaxill watched his daughter Michaela develop normally until shortly after her first birthday, when she was diagnosed with autism, in 1988. Mark has made the case in his research that there is a direct link between modern vaccination practices and schedules in several books:

 

The Age of Autism

Vaccines 2.0

Denial: How Refusing to Face the Facts about Our Autism Epidemic Hurts Children, Families, and Our Future

 

and his news website:

https://www.ageofautism.com/

 

Max fills in solo and explores these claims with Mark, his credentials and experience, and his evidence. They have a fair, evenhanded conversation, and explore multiple viewpoints - which includes several pieces of critical data from Mark, the historical success of vaccines, and the modern philosophical and political consequences of western medicine.

We hope you find this show challenging, engaging, and fair as we explore an inevitably controversial topic in multiple political circles.
