AP 49: The Conversation NO One Wants To Have •  Kevin Kunze
Topics We Covered in this Podcast: Suppression   Big Company Corruption   Cell phone radiation  Power of Technology   Natural World vs Technology   The Future      This is a bit of a contradictory subject as I know all of us on many occasions can over indulge in our technology. We are all constantly face booking or reading other people face booking this podcast would not even exist in the first place. Technology Is right in the mind of this human experience and the human desire to keep improving our technological advances is certain. We are at a point in time where theirs no doubt that we are in the middle of a huge change on this planet and one of the biggest reasons is we all carrying around and have accesses to all of the current human knowledge from the past to the now, from academic studies, to books to podcasts.  However, a huge scary gorilla In the corner of the room to add to this equation we’ve yet to mention– billions and billions of dollars When you put together our innate drive to improve our technological advances and the need to continue creating more money, technology changes from just being an organic creation of our humanity to a commodity. Now, this does not always have to be a bad thing, but greed and corruption weird way of slipping back into the human ethos when money and especially when major money can be made from a important area. On top of that, when a corporation’s main goal is to squeeze as much money as they possibly can, the well-being of humans just doesn’t always blend with that. So when certain people hold a piece of paper over there fellow human and corruption get its way into systems, we need a real oversight into what is really going on to create another change This is why Kevin Kunze is on the show. Kevin is the filmmaker behind Mobilize, an investigative documentary exploring the negative long-term health effects of cell phone radiation. The film examines recent scientific research, follows national legislative efforts, and exposes the influence that technology companies have on public health
