Karl Fisch and I[ Scott McLeod] are very pleased to announce the new version of Did You Know?

  1. Did You Know? 2.0
    • As you’ll see, we tried to minimize what some perceived as alarmism about globalism. We also fixed some errors, changed the music to something that didn’t violate copyright, and got a complete graphic makeover from XPLANE. Additionally, we added some material after ‘Shift Happens‘ to encourage viewer conversation and action.
