Due to censorship and frankly criminal level behavior such as this, I do not formally endorse nor use facebook any longer.  There are some great TSPC people still there and I wish them well but even those that remain continue to funnel folks to alternative options.

Also while I maintain a twitter account all I do there is announce new articles, I don’t engage on that platform due to censorship either.  Finally I still publish all my videos to YouTube but prefer that folks check us out on LBRY.tv which also does not censor content.

  • Jack on Parler – Parler is a great platform and one of the best ways to engage directly with me.  I am very active there and publish a ton of information beyond the podcast. The format on Parler is similar to twitter, it is brief posts and links with the ability to upvote, share (they call it echo) and comment on the posts of others.  Parler seems to be the fastest growing alternative social media platform out there, you should be a part of the Parley on Parler.

  • Jack on MeWe – MeWe is the uncensored version of facebook many of you have been looking for.  About the only thing they don’t offer that facebook does is live video.  Other then that they have it all, groups, pages, chats for individuals or groups.  Everything is private to at least MeWe members and from there you can be public to all members or share things only with your contacts.  You also own all your content and MeWe has a “Privacy Bill of Rights“, pledging to always protect your data and never sell it to anyone.  Facebook’s business model is selling you and your data while telling you what you can and can’t say.  I will never use FaceBook again, if you want to interact with me, give MeWe a shot.

  • Jack on Gab – Gab functions a lot like FaceBook as well.  I overall like Gab but I don’t put the effort into it that I do into MeWe.  What I like about Gab better than MeWe is my personal page is public so anyone can see what is on it whether they have a Gab account or not.  I appreciate MeWe’s  commitment to privacy but as a public personality I don’t want my content private.  Gab shows some real potential, they have groups and the format is very similar to Facebook, they appear not to censor anything, including some racist asshole shit.  So be prepared to block such people.  Other than that it is a decent platform and committed to staying 100% free of censorship.

  • TSPC on Discord – We have a great discord sever and some really active and helpful folks there.  Discord is cool, it works like a chat but it is broken down into “channels” which look like hash tags.  This means you can see the discussion on say guns or gardening, but not on other topics that don’t interest you.
    `
  • The TSPC Telegram Group and The TSPC Telegram Channel – What is the difference?  The Group is just a ton of TSP community members in a giant group chat.  Lots of great discussions and relationships are being formed there every day.  The Channel is one way, I just use it to let you know when new episodes are available.  More on that here.  The upshot is a lot of folks that don’t really want to have a massive number of alerts coming in prefer the channel just to stay in touch with what TSPC is doing.  TeleGram is a great app and I now push all friends and family to use it over the native text app on cell phones.  It does more and provides more privacy.

  • Jack on LinkedIn – I am there, I occasionally use it, but if you just want to get in touch with me, just fricken email me, you are way more likely to get a response.
    `
  • My Life on Instagram – I know Facebook owns IG and I don’t like it but my amazing wife posts some really cool pics and short videos of my life on IG and many folks love to follow us there for stuff you just won’t get anywhere else.
    `
  • LBRY.tv – I have a great channel there, just set up your LBRY.tv account here then look up my channel @jackspirko and subscribe to me and some other great folks.  All my videos on YouTube are automatically published to LBRY as well, LBRY will pay you in crypto just to use the platform, all the content is decentralized and they will never censor or take down a video.
    `
  • YouTube – I still publish all my videos on YouTube, one reason is that by doing so they also end up on LBRY.  The other reason is that it is a great way to reach a lot of people.  So far I have yet to be censored on YouTube, so while I build up my LBRY channel I will continue to publish to YouTube.
