Where realism and idealism meet Tony Brasunas, author of Double Happiness

My First Podcast Appearance

  • Why couldn’t the media report on the lab leak theory of covid for over a year?
  • Why was I censored by Huffington Post?
  • Why is my forthcoming book called Red, White & Blind?

My heart was beating quickly. The host threw questions at me.

It was my first appearance on a podcast in my life. It was also the first public event talking about Red, White & Blind. Take a listen at the link below if you’re interested!

I was nervous for sure, but after 10 minutes or so I settled in. At least I think so. I explained what I mean by the term “the New Enlightenment,” how I compose a Balanced Media Diet, and what I propose as a business model for independent media. I even got into an interesting conversation with Mr. Parker about the term “conspiracy theorist.” 

I think I was able to articulate myself reasonably well, but let me know your thoughts in the comments below. What did I do well? What did I do poorly? It was my first time so I’m viewing it as a learning experience and your thoughts will be very helpful.

Take a listen if you’d like to hear the good, the bad, and the ugly about where I see media, censorship, and disinformation going in this country.

My hope is that it prompts some great conversations and helps at least a few Americans see the world a little more truthfully.

Like every book, this one now needs a cover.

I’m working with a professional cover designer, and we have several that I believe have great potential. Can you help me by voting below for the one(s) that you find most compelling?

Note: All the covers are works in progress and will improve once we choose the best to focus on. The subtitle is also a work in progress and will likely change.

Size Matters

The ideal cover will look great both on a bookstore shelf and as a small thumbnail image in an Amazon listing. If you were in a bookstore, which cover would draw you in? In your opinion, should the cover evoke the many topics explored — such as social media censorship and a “balanced media diet” — or do you prefer simplicity? Essentially, I want to present a great image to attract the people who would enjoy and benefit from the investigation — as well as to draw in those who might, you know, judge a book by its…
