Quick Announcement About The Future!
Hey everyone! I want to give a brief announcement about the future of The Moral Trigger and my other podcast Beyond The Lede. For the past 6 weeks, I took a break from releasing content from The Moral Trigger in order to promote my new show co hosted with Patrick Foran about news and current events. That show now has its own stream on iTunes, Soundcloud Stitcher, Google Play Music and wherever you listen to podcasts. In this new show, Beyond The Lede, you hear my views on politics and the current news headlines. For The Moral Trigger, I will stay neutral and focus on bringing thought provoking content that deals more with social and existential issues. Now that Beyond The Lede has its own stream and I took some time to promote it, I will resume releasing content on The Moral Trigger. Beyond The Lede will be a weekly podcast and The Moral Trigger will be about every couple weeks like it used to be. I have some episodes coming soon about Islam, artificial intelligence, social media addiction, drone warfare, racism, and many other topics. I will be releasing both interviews and my own original content in the coming weeks so stay tuned. The newest episode will be released a few days after you’re hearing this and I can’t wait to know what you guys think! Also, a new website is in the works to encompass all of my work which will include the podcasts, some videos, writings, and original music. As always, please feel free to contact me if you have an idea worth sharing or would like to be a guest. and If you haven’t already, go subscribe to Beyond The Lede wherever you listen to podcasts and be sure to leave a review! That really helps us out. I’m excited for the future and I’m looking forward to furthering the discussion on these crucial topics ahead. Follow me on Twitter: @mikeskinnner
