In this episode, we're joined by Brad Skistimas, the creative force behind Five Times August, for an engaging discussion on challenging mainstream narratives through music. Tune in as we delve into the creative process behind Brad’s thought-provoking songwriting and the courage it takes to go against the crowd in pursuit of truth and authenticity.

Throughout our conversation, Brad shares personal anecdotes and insights into his journey as an independent artist, highlighting the importance of standing firm in one's convictions and resisting the pressure to conform to mainstream expectations. From his reflections on the failure of prominent and established  artists to speak out against government overreach to his own experiences in writing meaningful songs that resonate with listeners, we uncover the power of music to challenge the status quo and inspire critical thinking.

Join us as we explore the intersection of art, activism, and authenticity, and discover the transformative potential of music in shaping cultural discourse and driving positive change. We hope this episode serves as inspiration for artists and audiences alike to embrace their role in challenging the consensus and daring to speak truth to power.
