Episode Description:

Our Pop Conscious gals, Stacy and Malayna, offer steps and examples about how to be the consumer, not the consumee of movies, television, music, and online entertainment. Take control and let it all enrich your life rather than letting it take control of your brain. We can be in the world but not of the world and make everything a reflection of spiritual principle!

Guilty pop pleasures like The Bachelor or Twilight lead us to examine social evolution and inner demons; the Grammy’s lead us to marvel at how music can bring the world and generations together. We look at examining our radio presets, DVR’d shows, and phone apps for patterns and how Cirque du Soleil confirms that “with God all things are possible.” We talk about Arthur C. Clarke and when sci-fi become science reality and how observation, discernment, and choice help us create the life we want to live.
