The Boom Clap Podcast
Conversations on truth, values, and living life with faithful intention. We laugh, we go deep, and there's always a boom and a clap.
5 days ago
The Anatomy of a Fact
In this episode, we examine the "fact-checkers." They claim to be non-partisan... is this true? And who funds them? We also talk about how words are often manipulated to turn a truth into a lie. Why did we decide to talk about fact-checkers? Because truth matters. We live in a world that tries to lead with lies, but freedom is not found in lies, it is found in truth. Truth has no agenda. Lies always do. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fact-checking https://www.politifact.com/article/2017/dec/15/we-started-fact-checking-partnership-facebook-year/ https://www.poynter.org/ifcn/ https://www.poynter.org/ifcn/grants-ifcn/ https://www.poynter.org/major-funders/#1632843888743-52666069-9ec9 https://www.politifact.com/ https://www.politifact.com/who-pays-for-politifact/ https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poynter_Institute https://mediamattersamerica.com/ https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Media_Matters_for_America https://www.rwjf.org/en/library/collections/coronavirus-disease-2019--covid-19.html https://www.rwjf.org/en/how-we-work/building-a-culture-of-health.html https://www.rwjf.org/en/cultureofhealth/taking-action.html https://www.rwjf.org/en/about-rwjf/financials.html https://www.factcheck.org/our-funding/ https://annenberg.org/ https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Annenberg_Foundation https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Walter_Annenberg https://www.influencewatch.org/non-profit/annenberg-foundation/ https://www.annenberg.net/pages/visionMission.php https://capitalresearch.org/article/dishonest-fact-checkers/ https://www.heritage.org/public-opinion/commentary/the-facts-about-fact-checkers https://www.investors.com/politics/editorials/fact-checkers-big-media/ https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snopes

Socially Acceptable Corruption? An Interview With Alec Zeck
In this episode, Rita and Cecily interview Alec Zeck, of Health Freedom For Humanity. We focus in on the corruption and "in-breeding" within the CDC, FDA, government, media and investors. We talk criminal activity, gas-lighting, hypocrisy and the white-washed veneer of these agencies when they're presented to the public. https://www.instagram.com/ritarogersco/ https://www.instagram.com/cecily.dickey/ https://t.me/TheWayFwrd Check out some of the links below: https://healthfreedomforhumanity.org/ https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/e36-why-im-not-getting-the-thing/id1532600628?i=1000533983050 https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1111/jep.12147 https://www.fda.gov/about-fda/fda-leadership-1907-today/commissioners https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/33652582/ https://medslawsuit.com/frauds/what-is-a-pharmaceutical-kickback https://thebl.tv/world-news/12-of-the-13-most-vaccinated-countries-in-the-world-are-considered-risky-for-travel-by-cdc.html https://www.timesofisrael.com/israeli-uk-data-offer-mixed-signals-on-vaccines-potency-against-delta-strain/ https://www.timesofisrael.com/israeli-uk-data-offer-mixed-signals-on-vaccines-potency-against-delta-strain/ https://covidcalltohumanity.org/2021/08/16/majority-of-hospitalized-covid-19-patients-in-israel-are-fully-vaccinated/ https://www.forbes.com/sites/johnlamattina/2018/06/28/the-biopharmaceutical-industry-provides-75-of-the-fdas-drug-review-budget-is-this-a-problem/?sh=2d1747849ec8 https://thevaccinereaction.org/2021/08/covid-vaccines-not-proven-to-prevent-sars-cov-2-infection-or-transmission/ https://rightsfreedoms.wordpress.com/2021/08/02/covid-19-deaths-are-rising-and-official-data-shows-87-of-the-people-who-have-died-were-vaccinated/ https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/23597717/ https://openvaers.com/covid-data https://digital.ahrq.gov/ahrq-funded-projects/electronic-support-public-health-vaccine-adverse-event-reporting-system https://www.cdcfoundation.org/partner-list/corporations https://www.nytimes.com/2009/12/18/health/policy/18cdc.html

A Testimony, a Parable, and a Call to Stay Awake (and no, I don‘t mean woke).
In this episode, you'll hear Cecily's testimony of what God has done in her life. We'll talk about what a responsibility, blessing and privilege it is to be entrusted with kingdom work by God here on earth, and we'll talk about why it's so important to stay awake at the spiritual wheel. We'll also find out why Cecily liked hanging out by the garbage bin as a child. https://www.instagram.com/cecily.dickey/ https://www.instagram.com/ritarogersco/

87 Years Worth of Wisdom...
In today's episode, Cecily interviews her Grandma, who really isn't even sure what a podcast is. The conversation really gets rolling once Grandma gets used to the microphone. The Boom Clap Podcast is about values, and many of our recent episodes have focused hard on controversial current events and how our values shape how we think about them and function in culture. Today, we're slowing it down and looking to the past to glean wisdom for the future. We talk about: + Pioneer life in the early 1900's + Marriage and Parenting + Losing a child + Living Through War + Advice for today's generation + Legacy + Tragedy and Joy + Trusting God + Living With Purpose https://www.instagram.com/cecily.dickey/ https://www.instagram.com/ritarogersco/

Live Not By Lies
In this episode, the essay Live Not By Lies by Alexander Solzhenitsyn is read and discussed. Rita and Cecily have both become fascinated by the life and writings of this man, and they applied many current events to his thoughts. Much can be learned from history and those who have been through things that we have not. This is amongst our most passionate of episodes as we commit to live not by lies, but fully in truth. https://www.instagram.com/cecily.dickey/ https://www.instagram.com/ritarogersco/ https://honestyculture.com/alexander-solzhenitsyn-live-not-by-lies/ https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samizdat

Orwell vs. Huxley: Which Dystopia Will It Be?
Orwell feared a world of external oppression, and Huxley a world of internal oppression. Orwell feared the things we hate would rule us, Huxley feared it would be the things we love. In this episode, we dissect the 2 different visions of a dystopic future. We chat about the influences of each that we see in our current culture, & consider whether a utopia could ever be achieved using either of these methods. What does it really take to hold people captive? Fear? Or ever-growing passivity? https://www.instagram.com/cecily.dickey/ https://www.instagram.com/ritarogersco/ https://www.huxley.net/utopian-dystopian.pdf https://www.openculture.com/2018/08/aldous-huxley-george-orwell-hellish-vision-future-better-1949.html https://highexistence.com/amusing-ourselves-to-death-huxley-vs-orwell/ https://www.learning-mind.com/mental-slavery-orwell-huxley/ http://www.andrewcusack.com/2021/huxley-orwell/

Is the division we're feeling natural? Or is it instigated and fanned into an ever-growing flame by the media and the elites? Piggy-backing off last week's episode, Elites & Innocents, we peel back the layers of the metastasizing division that is plaguing our communities, our nations, and our world. We talk about how the media holds our attention with sensational and focused reporting, how groups of people are pitted against each other, and how embracing segregation fuels increased division. We also focus on practical applications for the Christian navigating these tricky times as we do our best to lead with love and seek unity in the body of Christ, which comes from knowledge of the Son of God. https://www.instagram.com/ritarogersco/ https://www.instagram.com/cecily.dickey/ https://nypost.com/2019/06/25/its-our-elites-who-are-driving-americas-divisions/

The Elites & The Innocents
Is there a group of people trying to make society in its own image? And is there a group of people who are swayed by the positive-sounding (yet deceptive) message of the first group? In this episode, we talk about the elites that enjoy power and wealth, the systems that help keep them in that position and the innocent, well-meaning people who play into their agenda. We also talk about the cost & realities of poverty and examine how "philanthropy" is often used as a smoke-screen for gaining more wealth and power. https://www.instagram.com/cecily.dickey/ https://www.instagram.com/ritarogersco/ https://truthunmuted.org/bill-gates-and-neo-feudalism-a-closer-look-at-farmer-bill/ https://inequality.org/great-divide/americas-billionaires-borrowing-their-way-to-ever-more-fabulous-fortunes/https://nonprofitquarterly.org/chan-zuckerberg-llc-are-no-tax-breaks-plus-no-accountability-good-for-the-public/ https://chanzuckerberg.com/ https://inequality.org/great-divide/chuck-collins-in-the-nation-the-perils-of-billionaire-philanthropy/ https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/other/new-bill-would-give-donor-advised-funds-deadlines-for-distributing-billions-of-dollars-to-charities/ar-AAKWmw5 https://borgenproject.org/how-much-does-it-cost-to-end-poverty/ https://www.forbes.com/sites/peterjreilly/2015/12/04/what-is-with-this-chan-zuckerberg-llc-thing-tax-geeks-speak/?sh=15e9ab6667b8

Mandates are Rolling Out...
We're going a little rogue today, and deviating from the content we had planned. Mandates are rolling out and we couldn't ignore that. It's having an effect on many... including Cecily and Rita. Rita, in particular, is grappling with the requirements at her own hospital, while Cecily and the rest of Canada come to terms with new requirements for federal employees, air and train travellers, and more. Are you for vaccine mandates? Or not? We talk through some of that today.

Stakeholder Capitalism & a Rant on Illogical Mandates
Today we're looking into the topic of stakeholder capitalism: What it means, who's advocating for it, and what it really is, beneath the title.

In today's episode, we ask the question 'What Does it Mean to be Human?' We discuss the topic bio-digital convergence, and its impact on humans, nature, the way we live our lives, and how it reconciles with a Christian worldview. This is a topic we've been thinking a lot about, and we can't wait to hear what you think about it! https://www.draper.com/ https://www.draper.com/news-releases/equipping-insects-special-service https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5984274/ https://horizons.gc.ca/en/2020/02/11/exploring-biodigital-convergence/ https://www.forbes.com/sites/worldeconomicforum/2016/11/10/shopping-i-cant-really-remember-what-that-is-or-how-differently-well-live-in-2030/?sh=501d7c721735 https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-53956683 https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/technology/what-to-know-about-neuralink-elon-musk-s-brain-computer-interface-project/ar-BB18k8XW https://www.darpa.mil/work-with-us/ai-next-campaign

Mandates and Declinations
Rita is flying solo on this episode as she talks about mandates and declinations.

Can Anyone Force You to do Anything?
In this episode, Rita and Cecily talk about what force really is, and the difference between freedom, liberty and Christian freedom. Rita's pretty fired up, and we're joined by a frog who just really wanted his voice heard. https://www.instagram.com/cecily.dickey/ https://www.instagram.com/ritarogersco/ https://ammo.com/articles/freedom-liberty-difference-understanding-negative-vs-positive-rights

Minds That Change. Part 1.
We've never encountered a more polarized time (in our lifetime). This can lead to deep division, or it can lead to growth. Over the next 2 weeks, we're hearing from 4 women who have chosen growth rather than division. Today, we're pleased to introduce Heather and Rachelle. Heather found herself motivated by the events of this year to start homeschooling. Rachelle found herself going from finding offense to finding understanding. Both of these women shared so well! https://www.instagram.com/ritarogersco/ https://www.instagram.com/cecily.dickey/ https://www.instagram.com/rachelleugalde/ https://www.instagram.com/brownandcodesigns/ https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/real-talk-with-rachelle/id1541527962

Present-Focused vs. Future-Focused
We're talking about how people tend to either be present-focused or future-focused... but should we be? We discuss how the present and the future are linked, particularly from a Christian perspective.

In this episode, we talk about how careless words are frequently spoken. We breakdown a few popular words and phrases to make sure we're not blinded by the grain of truth, but seeing the WHOLE truth.

The Divided North American Heart.
We talk about the value of hardships... and how the lack of them may have the damaging effect of causing us to love our lives too much. We talk about how the past year has been difficult, but that difficulty shouldn't be wasted. We talk about the global church and how it's flourishing where they are facing the most hardships... as opposed to the shrinking American and Canadian church. There's also a lively debate over jumbo hot-dogs, smokies and bratwursts, and an epic parenting speech by Rita.

We also talk about being Mom's... the weight of it, the beauty of it... and some of the insecurities it brings out. We hope you enjoy this episode!
