This Podcast Series Looks Inside the U.S. Culture Wars

Why are these particular t-words (taboo truths and tales) all in the title? A fair question.

The three t-words are used in the title because this podcast series deals with subject matter from American life considered to be taboo. Often what one person considers to be taboo is also at the exact same time considered common sense by another person.

These everyday, easy-to-see contrasts or conflicts between opposing views and beliefs and ways of thinking are commonly called culture wars.

Episodes of this podcast series deal with an individual’s perception of truths. Because of culture wars, it’s easy to find what one person considers to be acceptable and true is also at the exact same time considered unacceptable and false by another person.

This podcast series also deal with tales of fiction. Often what one person considers to be truth told honestly is also at the exact same time considered a made-up tale dressed up pretending to look like truth. The term gaslighting expresses the process of dressing up something deceptive or false to make it appear to be authentic or true.

Each of us needs to think and choose for ourselves what we perceive to be truths versus made-up tales pretending to be truth because of culture wars in American life today blurring the distinction between the two and because gaslighting is so common in our everyday life today.

Certain episodes of this series present taboo tales in the form of a narrated story (clearly designated as works of fiction and not to be confused with real life) which each examine controversial and provocative subjects and themes.

This is because opposing beliefs and values within any culture so readily promote polarized groups of people in society. It is not wise to expect to see an end to culture wars or to change someone successfully from one side to the other. Episodes of this podcast series dig deep into particular examples and outcomes of culture wars. You can find a clear-cut example of opposing sides in the American culture wars here in this blog post without leaving this website.
