The Anatomy of a Fact

The Anatomy of a Fact

October 10, 2021

In this episode, we examine the "fact-checkers."

They claim to be non-partisan... is this true? And who funds them?

We also talk about how words are often manipulated to turn a truth into a lie.

Why did we decide to talk about fact-checkers? Because truth matters.

We live in a world that tries to lead with lies, but freedom is not found in lies, it is found in truth.

Truth has no agenda. Lies always do.

Socially Acceptable Corruption? An Interview With Alec Zeck

Socially Acceptable Corruption? An Interview With Alec Zeck

October 3, 2021

In this episode, Rita and Cecily interview Alec Zeck, of Health Freedom For Humanity. We focus in on the corruption and "in-breeding" within the CDC, FDA, government, media and investors.

We talk criminal activity, gas-lighting, hypocrisy and the white-washed veneer of these agencies when they're presented to the public.

A Testimony, a Parable, and a Call to Stay Awake (and no, I don‘t mean woke).

A Testimony, a Parable, and a Call to Stay Awake (and no, I don‘t mean woke).

September 26, 2021

In this episode, you'll hear Cecily's testimony of what God has done in her life. We'll talk about what a responsibility, blessing and privilege it is to be entrusted with kingdom work by God here on earth, and we'll talk about why it's so important to stay awake at the spiritual wheel. We'll also find out why Cecily liked hanging out by the garbage bin as a child.

87 Years Worth of Wisdom…

87 Years Worth of Wisdom…

September 19, 2021

In today's episode, Cecily interviews her Grandma, who really isn't even sure what a  podcast is. The conversation really gets rolling once Grandma gets used to the microphone.

The Boom Clap Podcast is about values, and many of our recent episodes have focused hard on controversial current events and how our values shape how we think about them and function in culture.

Today, we're slowing it down and looking to the past to glean wisdom for the future. We talk about:

+ Pioneer life in the early 1900's

+ Marriage and Parenting

+ Losing a child

+ Living Through War

+ Advice for today's generation

+ Legacy

+ Tragedy and Joy

+ Trusting God

+ Living With Purpose

Live Not By Lies

Live Not By Lies

September 12, 2021

In this episode,  the essay Live Not By Lies by Alexander Solzhenitsyn is read and discussed.

Rita and Cecily have both become fascinated by the life and writings of this man, and they applied many current events to his thoughts.

Much can be learned from history and those who have been through things that we have not.

This is amongst our most passionate of episodes as we commit to live not by lies, but fully in truth.

Orwell vs. Huxley: Which Dystopia Will It Be?

Orwell vs. Huxley: Which Dystopia Will It Be?

September 5, 2021

Orwell feared a world of external oppression, and Huxley a world of internal oppression. Orwell feared the things we hate would rule us, Huxley feared it would be the things we love.

In this episode, we dissect the 2 different visions of a dystopic future. We chat about the influences of each that we see in our current culture, & consider whether a utopia could ever be achieved using either of these methods.

What does it really take to hold people captive? Fear? Or ever-growing passivity?

Calculated Division

Calculated Division

August 29, 2021

Is the division we're feeling natural? Or is it instigated and fanned into an ever-growing flame by the media and the elites?

Piggy-backing off last week's episode, Elites & Innocents, we peel back the layers of the metastasizing division that is plaguing our communities, our nations, and our world.

We talk about how the media holds our attention with sensational and focused reporting, how groups of people are pitted against each other, and how embracing segregation fuels increased division.

We also focus on practical applications for the Christian navigating these tricky times as we do our best to lead with love and seek unity in the body of Christ, which comes from knowledge of the Son of God.

The Elites & The Innocents

The Elites & The Innocents

August 22, 2021

Is there a group of people trying to make society in its own image? And is there a group of people who are swayed by the positive-sounding (yet deceptive) message of the first group?

In this episode, we talk about the elites that enjoy power and wealth, the systems that help keep them in that position and the innocent, well-meaning people who play into their agenda.

We also talk about the cost & realities of poverty and examine how "philanthropy" is often used as a smoke-screen for gaining more wealth and power.

Mandates are Rolling Out…

Mandates are Rolling Out…

August 15, 2021

We're going a little rogue today, and deviating from the content we had planned. Mandates are rolling out and we couldn't ignore that. It's having an effect on many... including Cecily and Rita. Rita, in particular, is grappling with the requirements at her own hospital, while Cecily and the rest of Canada come to terms with new requirements for federal employees, air and train travellers, and more. Are you for vaccine mandates? Or not? We talk through some of that today.
