Happy New Year! In this episode of the American Culture Podcast we talk about (1) the dumbing down of the American high school student via the Common Core; (2) British protesters who don’t understand what an election is; (3) Women who want men to respect their sanctuaries; and (4) My brief thoughts on the impeachment of Donald Trump.
One important program note that I want to mention – the American Culture Podcast is now being carried on both Spotify and on iHeartRadio, which is huge. Those two platforms have really dived into the podcasting market to compete with Apple Podcasts and Google Play. But the bottom line is that getting added to those sites greatly expands our reach, and also gives our listeners (and potential listeners) more options and more ways to find us.
Also, a reminder that even when I’m not recording podcast episodes, I am still active on the Facebook page (Facebook.com/AmericanCulturePodcast) and the Twitter account (@AmCulturePod). So I hope you’ll follow us on our social media accounts to get much more of the type of content I share on the podcast. And I hope you’ll tell your Facebook and Twitter friends about us, so we can increase our online footprint and spread the word.
Do you have a “boycott” list? A list of companies you refuse to do business with for ideological reasons? Have you noticed that the Democrats have gone full-blown socialist in recent weeks?

What lessons should we draw from the ugly Supreme Court confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh? Do conservative voices have an equal right to be heard? Is America really as angry and divided as the media would have us believe? How much #winning has Donald Trump been up to lately? And when will the lawsuits against “Big Marijuana” start?

How racist is the New York Times? Have we finally come to the point where everyone is a Nazi? Was Dianne Feinstein a witting, or an unwitting, colluder with communist China for over 20 years? Has Donald Trump already won the dreaded trade war with Europe, without firing a shot? Is there any aspect of your life that Left does not want to control? We talk about all that, and more, here on the American Culture Podcast.

Could Kanye West and Kim Kardashian be the reason Donald Trump wins re-election in 2020? Could Donald Trump be on the verge of winning the Nobel Peace Prize? Should a hospital be allowed to hold your sick child hostage, and force you to stand by helplessly as they pull the plug and wait for your baby to die? Is it time for you to re-think your relationship with big internet companies like Google, Facebook, and Yahoo? And what do the Ku Klux Klan and today’s “antifa” protesters have in common? We talk about all of it, on Episode 4 of the American Culture Podcast.
Major announcement!! After slowly building our website and podcast over the past few months, we hit a major milestone today. The American Culture Podcast is now available on Apple’s iTunes and on the Apple Podcasts App, on GooglePlay (for Android users), and on the Stitcher App (an excellent podcast player, and the one I use most). This will greatly increase the visibility of the podcast and make it easier for our listeners to find and enjoy the show on their mobile devices. Here are the details:
Apple users can find our show page in the online iTunes Store at the following link: American Culture Podcast on iTunes . From the iTunes store, the blue “View in iTunes” button will open up our show page inside the iTunes / Apple Podcasts App, and from inside the App you can SUBSCRIBE to our podcast, and also leave a review for the show. I can’t stress enough how important 5-star reviews are to making the podcast easier for potential new listeners to find and therefore growing our audience. If you can support the show with a strong review I will be very grateful.
Android users can now find our show on Google Play at the following link: American Culture Podcast at play.google.com. (Google Play doesn’t provide an effective way to “review” the podcast, so even if you prefer Android for your podcast listening, taking a moment to look us up on iTunes and write a strong review will be greatly appreciated).
Stitcher fans can find the podcast on the Stitcher website at the following link: American Culture Podcast on Stitcher. At the bottom of that web page you will find the link to give us a rating and a review for Stitcher. The show also pops up pretty quickly on the Stitcher mobile app if you search for “American Culture Podcast.”
Update on 3/15/2018:
I just received the notification that the podcast is now available on the TuneIn platform. We can be found on their mobile app via a simple search for “American Culture Podcast”, and we are on the TuneIn.com web platform at the following link: American Culture Podcast at TuneIn.com.
I will be copying the above information to our soon-to-be-created “About” page here on the website, so that it will be preserved for future reference. Other listening platforms (TuneIn, Spotify, Podbean, etc…) will also be added over time, and I’ll update the information on the “About” page as that happens.
On February 14, 19-year old Nikolas Cruz entered a classroom building at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, pulled the fire alarm, and in the resulting confusion he proceeded over the course of the next six minutes to shoot and kill 17 persons, which included 14 high school students ranging in ages from 14 to 18 years old, a geography teacher, an assistant football coach, and the school’s athletic director. In addition to the dead, 16 other people were wounded or injured in the attack. Cruz used a legally purchased AR-15-style semi-automatic rifle in the slaughter, and much has been written and said in the past few weeks about the shooting, about the multiple failures of school administrators, law enforcement, and others, to prevent the senseless loss of life despite the many, many warning signs that Nikolas Cruz was a tragedy waiting to happen. Much of the vitriol and finger-pointing coming out of the mainstream news media has been directed at the 2nd Amendment of the United States Constitution, at law abiding Americans who own and use personal firearms responsibly, and at the National Rifle Association. The pain and anger over the Parkland shooting are completely understandable and completely appropriate. But is it really productive, or appropriate, to blame the 2nd Amendment and the NRA for what happened? We’re going to talk about it, here on the American Culture Podcast.
