Congressional Dish (With Jen Briney)

Jen Briney is the host of the Podcast Award-nominated Congressional Dish, a twice monthly podcast exposing the secrets drowned out by the partisan noise in the United States Congress. By interpreting legislation, summarizing Congressional hearings and following the money, Jen analyzes the actions of Congress that are generally ignored by the corporate media, delivering the information from the perspective of a fed-up taxpayer who bears no allegiance to any political party or ideology.

Check the show out at congressionaldish.com or on Twitter @CongressDish. Jen is on Twitter @JenBriney.

Best Kept Secret or: How We Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Ourselves (With Elizabeth April)

Reality as we know it is evolving right before our eyes. All you have to do is turn on your TV, log on to the internet or open up a newspaper to see that the veil is finally being lifted, and things that have been mere speculation on sketchy internet forums are now playing out for the world to see.

On the surface this looks like a tremendous paradigm shift that isn’t for the betterment of people like you and me, common folks trying to eke out a living in the slowly deteriorating middle class. But all hope is not lost, and my guest in this transmission, Elizabeth April, is here to talk about how we can go about changing not just the world around us, but also the world within us.

Elizabeth is an experimental psychic from Canada who’s spent the last several years of her life helping clientele expand and access their consciousness and a universal understanding through past life regressions and psychic readings.

In addition to consciousness, Elizabeth and I touch on subjects such as the global political economy, past lives, reincarnation and quantum mechanics, and we outline a three-step process for avoiding egotistical relapse. This is probably my favorite podcast I’ve recorded to date. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

You can keep up with Elizabeth at ElizabethApril.com, or on Facebook by searching Psychic Elizabeth April, on Twitter @ElizabethApril_, on Instagram @elizabeth.april, and on Snapchat @psychicea. All those social links will drive you to her YouTube channel, where she talks about many of the same topics we get into in this transmission.
