My content, elsewhere

In addition to the YouTube channel listed in the site navigation, from 2014-2018, I created video content about climate change on YouTube at my channel, Carbon Freeze.

I was a Huffington Post contributor, mostly focusing on anti-war and anti-imperialism content, from 2011 to 2017, with multiple front-page stories. Check out my HuffPost contributor archive here. Much of this content was duplicated at FireDogLake, which is now known as Shadowproof.

From 2008-2018, I was a regular blogger at DailyKos, focusing on progressive content, often from a religious perspective (from which I have since moved on). If that interests you, take a look. During this period, I also created a substantial portion of the video content available at the Rethink Afghanistan channel.
