The Opinionated Kruffy

By Paul Schmidt III
Anyone that knows me, knows I have an opinion on almost everything. Whether it's something on the other side of the globe or right here in our own back yard - especially here at home! You see Facebook rants is just not doing it for me, because who has time these days to type & rant when you can podcast & rant. In this podcast I'll attempt to do just that. Select a topic or two to voice my opinion on. How consistent am I going be? Fingers crossed 🤞🏼 as much as time permits 😊 Of course it's not just my views, I will also want to hear from listeners to the podcast & guests to the podcast.

Episode 6: Are We Back to Square One? And Government tek wi fi CUNUMUNU !?
Are We Back to Square One? And Government tek wi fi CUNUMUNU !?  Why do new administrations think it is okay to point fingers & stick with the tiresome narrative of pointing fingers & the blame game? When is enough really enough? When will government really ensure that country is living at its full potential of being a productive & happy nation? In this episode, after a little two weeks break! I am back with just an emotional piece! Because YES! Everybody should get upset & everyone should keep on agitating government! Also, was Julius being racist when he called Hon Patrick Faber ''boy''? My thoughts on these & more in this episode! ALL MY SOCIAL MEDIA LINKS https://linktr.ee/Paul.Schmidt.3

Episode 5: Racism/Colorism/Systemic Colonial Mentality in Policing!
Will we ever break free from the shackles of our colonial masters? Does the police department need to retrain? Will there ever be mutual respect in this country between citizens & officers in authority? Today, I share something I witnessed yesterday and something I see far too often during a stop & search of our young black Belizean boys in this country!

EPISODE 4 : PAYCUTS ON THE HORIZON | SHOULD IT HAPPEN?
Join me this episode, as I discuss my Kruffy Economics 101 & how I believe the proposed salary cuts by the government will affect Belize & the economy. Is it good? Are we in this together as they say?  Can we avoid the salary cuts? What are the alternatives? I try to give my opinion on this - if you have any thoughts to share, I definitely want to hear from you as well, so feel free hit play on the podcast, share with friends and of course, I welcome & encourage everyone to send in their "Kruffy Opinion!"

EPISODE 3 : The Covid-19 Vaccine is here in Belize! Will you be getting the Vaccine?
This episode, I want to switch gears a little and put some focus on some long awaited news!   The Covid-19 vaccine is finally here in Belize and distribution has commenced with frontline workers & will definitely be underway for the rest of the population. Will you be getting the vaccine? Join me as I have a conversation with Dr. Eric Bradley, Specialist in Internal Medicine & Diabetology, Head of Internal Medicine at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital (KHMH) & one of the lead Doctors in the Covid Unit here in Belize. During our conversation, we look back at the then and now, pre vaccine & now the rolling out of the vaccination to the population.  We have a heart to heart moment, between two cousins. With this episode, I hope that you are informed to see the benefits, that when your turn comes, you take the vaccine!
