Welcome to SomethingBurger!

 

Hey Ricochet friends,

My podcast has officially joined the Ricochet Audio Network. I know what you are thinking: “Mikayla, what is a SomethingBurger?” Great question.

I totally made it up. It’s a play off the phrase “nothing burger” which is journalism lingo for when a story ends up going nowhere. Likely, it is “news” with a lot of hype and no follow-through. Think Russian collusion. A SomethingBurger, on the other hand, is the exact opposite. A SomethingBurger is a story that actually matters.

Unlike the more common news cycle style podcast, the SomethingBurger podcast focuses each episode on one individual question. Every week I lay out the compassionate conservative (no, not that compassionate conservative) argument for one of America’s most debated questions.

Here are some past episode titles:

  • Are Sex and Gender Different?
  • Is Illegal Immigration a Victimless Crime?
  • Why Does Israel Exist?
  • Is Voter ID Racist?
  • Kids or Career?
  • Who Needs a Gun?
  • What are Facebook’s Standards?
  • And MORE!

This week the question is “Does Porn Kill Love?” ( I don’t shy away from sensitive topics.)

On this show, I like to explore the questions that go beyond politics and into our culture (or the other way around). I take you through years of history, statistics, even funny tweets to show you how the conservative argument is in fact the most compassionate one.

It’s conservatism from the heart (and from a millennial.)

You should listen to the SomethingBurger Podcast if:

  • You are curious what goes in the mind of a 25-year-old conservative woman.
  • You have heard that all conservatives are “mean.”
  • You know conservatism is right, but you can’t always articulate why.
  • You care deeply about people.
  • You love America.
  • You want to take our culture back.

Any of those sound like you?

AND: I take episode suggestions! All you have to do is leave a review and let me know what question you would like to hear me answer!

What are you waiting for?

The show is available almost anywhere you listen to podcasts and, most importantly, on the Ricochet Audio Network!

Let me know what you think.

Love and Light,

Mikayla

    Why does this seem like you are conceding the premise(s) of  the Left?

    Riddle me this, IF voter ID is racist, why are vaccine passports ok?

    Its also, that pretty much every story that the media dismissed as a nothing burger – was something.

    Good luck with the new venture … Looking forward to it!

    I don’t see that she is conceding anything by discussing these topics.

    Those topics are part of the agenda set by the left. So she is in rebuttal mode, as opposed to setting her own agenda.

    Pretending that the left doesn’t have any arguments doesn’t make them go away.  I’m sure many of conservativism’s most prominent voices have laid out the progressives’ arguments so that they can refute them.
