S.3 Ep.13: Marcos Zelada-Rodas - Political Activism in California
Join me as I sit down with Marcos Zelada-Rodas to discuss political activism in California and censorship in education. We explore how censorship manifests in schools and universities, its impact on students and teachers, and what can be done to resist censorship attempts. Zelada-Rodas also discuss the role of political activism in pushing back against censorship and the need for continued vigilance on this issue. This episode is a must-listen for anyone interested in the politics of education or censorship in general. Zelada-Rodas served as a Military Police Officer in the United States Army and has been involved with conservative activism and bringing the fight for traditional values to Southern California. He has been involved with many organizations such as Turning Point USA, the Freedom Foundation, and the Republican National Hispanic Assembly. He currently serves as President of Turning Point USA chapters and is on the state board for the RNHA. Recently Marcos worked for education reform alongside Lance Christensen and Richard Grenell ( Former Ambassador to Germany and Former Acting Director of National Intelligence ). Zelada-Rodas has appeared on OANN, The Daily Caller, FOX LA, Telemundo, Turning Point Live, PragerU, TBN, Campus Reform, and more to discuss his activism, fighting the radical left, and public policy that will save America.

S.3 Ep.12: Deirdra Burley - Cancel Culture in Education
Join me as I sit down with Deirdra Burley to discuss cancel culture in education. She is a Sophomore at Chapman University majoring in strategic and corporate communication with a minor in political science. Burley's passion for politics originated in middle school, but her involvement in politics began when she experienced the impact of cancel culture for being conservative: "After going through a long battle, fighting students and administration for months, I have only become more vocal in my beliefs. Since the start of college, I have interned for the Lincoln Club Institute in Orange County and am currently interning for Congressman Ken Calvert in Corona. My experience has shown me that I belong in politics, and I hope sharing my message will push other students to want to share their stories too. The more we speak up, the stronger we are when fighting the far left."

Ep. 7: Jennifer Keil - Red Lipstick Research
A few years ago I began examining the history of red lipstick and it remains one of my favorite topics to study. To broaden my research, I began interviewing people about how they feel when they wear red lipstick and/or when they see someone else wearing it. This interview is the first of many that focus on the same research questions. Jennifer Keil agreed to be my guest once again and her insight on the topic was not only helpful but fascinating!
