Opening song: “Wake up” by Keize

On this 1 month anniversary, I highlight some of the achievements of the show thus far. Amassing nearly 400 podcast listens within the first month, the show has exceeded all expectations so far. In addition, the show has picked up two affiliations: timetofree.us and sovereigntynetwork.com!

Getting into news, I cover the absolute hypocrisy that former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright is engaged in. The situation is Syria just took a dramatic turn, as the state department reveals a large scale offensive by a secretive US-backed force pushes in from Turkey. Jordan urges people not to forget that just a few short years ago, President Obama asked Congress to authorize use of force in Syria against Assad.

The rant continues with coverage of the Trump protesters and their far left ideology. If the mainstream left cannot shut you up, shut you down or shame you, they will use physical force; and that has been demonstrated. Even as people beg for food in Democratic Socialist Venezuela, Trump protesters are demanding to go under that very system.

Moving further into podcast, I cover an incredible article highlighting seven reasons why Bernie Sanders is completely avoiding the Venezuela issue, even when pressed about it on Latin television.

Wrapping up the podcast, some major marijuana news is covered as a study finds no negative health effects of smoking pot, except one. Also, China has unveiled their giant data collection service. They are tracking purchases and movements of citizens over the age of 80 to supposedly help them live their lives better.

Every Wednesday and Saturday evening, Below The Tension podcast brings you news and information that never broke the surface tension of headline news. Jordan, your host, hand picks and curates stories from credible sources that appeared in the back of the paper, bottom of the website or never made it onto network news; but these stories deserve all of the attention. Using the mainstream media to break its own paradigm, the show dives below the surface, delivering precise, knowledgeable opinion and well-rounded critiques of politicians, media outlets and much more.

From military vet and contractor to full time student, from Hurricane Katrina survivor to charity founder, from politically apathetic to extremely active; your host of Below The Tension podcast has seen it all. Delivering commentary from a depth of knowledge, Jordan draws from his experiences to guide the listener through a blitz of news. Currently a student at the University of Colorado – Boulder, Jordan is pursuing a degree in Business Administration. He enlisted in the United States Air Force June 2007, separated June 2011 and was a military contractor from June 2011 to April 2016.
