About Fred's Front Porch Podcast

Idealism, fiction, and whatever comes up.  I've been doing my podcast since September, 2019. It's my effort to change the world.  The fact that I will be unsuccessful is irrelevant.  "To believe you can change the world is insanity; failure to try is cowardice."  So, here I am trying.  

You'll find some entertaining short stories, some of which are mine, and some of which are classics of literature.  

You'll find lots of discussion of Universal Basic Income, COVID-19, the facts of poverty, and advocacy for Universal Healthcare.  You'll hear, over and over, that we all matter.  There is no Them; we are all Us.
