Hi and welcome to The Zoo Media Network page. My name is Michael Mahony and I want to thank you for being here. I have been active in the fitness industry for 10 years and have been involved with politics for 25 years. They are both passions of mine and I plan to share those passions here with you. 

To give you more information about me, allow me to tell you how I got involved in the fitness industry and I will follow that up with a discussion about how I got into politics. These two topics will be discussed here a lot.

It all began when I had to have back surgery in 2003. I had an amazing neurosurgeon who managed to fix a really nasty rupture in my lower back. During the recovery process, I gained over 30 pounds. I was pushing 300 lbs. I got involved in something called the Shreddersphere and was in the inaugural group that participated in accountability blogging. It was a brand new concept at the time. I was challenged to write daily and submit photos daily. I managed to do this for 2 straight years without missing a single day. 

I managed to take off about 30 pounds, but then progress completely stalled. It was around this time that I met Chris Albert. He took me under his wing and helped me with a plan to lose the weight. I was instructed to enter and pay for a bodybuilding competition. I was then to tell every person I know about it. The idea was to compete whether I lost the weight or not. Obviously, I did not want to be fat and on a stage, so the motivation was real. I managed to drop a total of 85 pounds before taking the stage for the very first time. The experience drove me to want to be more involved in the fitness industry.

Immediately after competing I began a program to obtain my CPT (Certified Personal Trainer). I became a CPT almost a year later and began working with clients. During this entire time period, I was busy writing articles at http://fitnessexpose.com. I began to create a following and got a lot of joy out of helping others.

Today I am the host of Fitness Freedom, a podcast that is all about personal fitness motivation. The podcast is aimed at setting you free from your personal body prison. It is available on iTunes and Google Play, so be sure to have a listen, will you?

Politics is something that has interested me since high school. I've always enjoyed a good debate and political debates give me the most fun. 

I've run for the local school board and I've assisted many candidates get elected. I have worked hard on local issues. I ran for Orange County Supervisor, 2nd District in 2018.

All of this gave rise to my podcast, Peeling the Orange. 

So why am I here? About 3 years ago I began to consider the idea of adding membership content to Fitness Expose. While working on this concept I realized just how difficult it can be. It adds a lot of extra work, but work that could be very rewarding. I also realized that I have a lot to share about world events. While my opinions are not really mainstream, they are always well thought out and detailed.

Here, at Patreon, YOU, my friends, fans and audience, support me DIRECTLY as I create regular content for you. The best part is that the more support I get, the more content I can create. There are many Patreon creators who were able to quit their day jobs and become full-time creators! Can you imagine what that would be like? 

At Patreon, I have the amazing opportunity to hone my skills as a content creator and observer and commentator of life while working hard directly for you. YOU are who my content was always for anyway. I now have the ability to provide hours of content a week for my loyal and encouraging supporters.

Do I think I can ever do this full time? It would be nice I bet. Imagine being able to shape my day the way I would like while providing cutting-edge commentary and content for all of you. Not only that, but I could be making a living at it!! The thought makes me extremely excited! 

Welcome to The Zoo Media Network! I am grateful to each and every one of you and hope to have you as a Patron and to keep you here for a long, long time.

Please share this site with everyone you know. Let them know that for as little as a one buck (the cheapest pack of gum costs more than that) they will get amazing content on all sorts of topics and philosophies and ideas every month. Will you or they miss $1 a month? Hardly. You find $1 under your sofa cushions and laundry in a month. You can't even buy a watery soda at a taco stand with that little change. But that $1 can change the way I provide content for you and countless others for YEARS and YEARS to come!! Think about how WONDERFUL and SPECIAL that is!!

So let's do this...together.

Thanks and peace to you.
