Interchange Edit

Interchange is a humanities project and talk show style event where artists, activists & entrepreneurs with different ideas and perspectives come together to address multiple topics and provoke thoughtful dialogue. We don’t necessarily need a solution when we’re finished, though a good mind flush of new ideas and creativity can offer wisdom and perspective to our own process and development. By doing so, we create a level platform for history, politics, religion, philosophy, criticism, ethics, self-consciousness, reason, creativity, human values and aspirations. Our dialogue podcast is available worldwide from the IAmInterchange channel on SoundCloud.

  • Ken Johnson / Sons of Odin Edit

    I Am Interchange has an upcoming dialogue and debate on Human Migration and Displacement. We will be producing a series of mini episodes that feature the back story of our guests for upcoming events. For this episode, I Interviewed Ken Johnson with the Sons of Odin. The Sons Odin is an anti immigrant & refugee street patrol group that originated in Finland. The group was established as a response to thousands of asylum seekers arriving in Finland amid the European migrant crisis.

    The binary choice of ‘Good’ and ‘Evil’ are laid out very clearly in our entertainment. Star Wars, for example: Darth Vader wears black, Princess Leia wears white. It’s very clear whom you should cheer for.

    When the real life discussions of ‘Cultural Heritage’ and ‘Immigration’ meet the lines and begin to blur as we discover in our latest podcast.
