Because of Etienne's day job he doesn't get to post as much as he would like which is a pity because there is so much going on in the world that needs to be shared and understood. So in the philosophy of giving a man a fish and feeding him for a day or teaching a man to fish and feeding him for a lifetime I would like to provide some honest voices that I have discovered in the alternative media that can help to cut through the crap from the bought and paid for MainStreamMedia.
While there are a number of websites that I recommend at the bottom of this article the most powerful voice of truth that I have found is radio talk show host and documentary filmmaker Alex Jones. Alex broadcasts a 3 hour syndicated radio show 5 days a week out of Austin, Texas and another 2 hour syndicated radio show on Sundays. I like to think of Alex's show as "Radio Free America".
Naturally Alex is blocked from the major bought and paid for syndicated radio networks like Clear Channel but luckily his show is available each day as a podcast on Apple iTunes or downloaded as an MP3 from his website at http://infowars.com/listen.html or you can listen live as a stream here: http://www.infowars.com/stream.pls
Now... For the Alex Jones iPod Project... Because Alex's message is so powerful it would behoove the truth movement to get as many people listening as possible. Luckily the platform to rapidly expand the distribution of Alex's show exists but is not promoted in a way that befits its incredible potential.
That platform is the Apple iPod.
According to Wikipedia Apple has sold over 141 million iPods globally as of January 2008 and is selling more than 6 million more each month. Subscribing to Alex's show is as simple as going to the Podcast section of the Apple iTunes music store that most iPod users already have on their computer, searching the available Podcasts for "Alex Jones" and clicking subscribe. From then on each day Alex's show will be downloaded to that subscriber's iPod and they are then plugged in to Radio Free America.
If you already have iTunes installed on your computer you can simply hit the link: itpc://xml.nfowars.net/Alex.rss and Apple iTunes will launch and you will be automatically subscribed.
If you don't have an iPod you can still download the Apple iTunes program for free and listen on your PC here: http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/
So what is the Alex Jones iPod Project? It is simply a plan to spread the freedom message by getting as many people as humanly possible subscribed to Alex's show on their iPods by speading the link to subscribe, the instructions on how to subscribe, or by helping your more technology-phobic friends and relatives to subscribe by physically going to their computer and showing them how.
How can you help?
1. Commit to getting at least two of your friends that have iPods subscribed ASAP.
2. Post this article far and wide to help others learn how to subscribe.
3. Phone in to Alex's show and support the idea as worthy of consideration.
