Chattanoooga, TN – Local Conservative, Reed Uberman, has launched an interview-style live forum where listeners can hear key thought leaders discuss causes, culture, politics, and faith.
Dubbed the “Indie Thinker“, the podcast is hosted by Uberman and aims to present a conservative Christian viewpoint on relevant social topics rather than being an echo chamber of mainstream media.
However, Uberman warns, “Don’t come expecting the typical church response.”
According to Uberman, Indie Thinker wades into the hot button issues of our day with an upfront and honest approach.
Uberman states that the goal of the podcast is simple – inform the public about the most important issues of our day.
The Indie Thinker plans to provide a mix of entertaining guests and proactive discussion with episodes dedicated to issues like the narrative surrounding systemic police racism, critical race theory curriculum injection into public schools, the progressive move toward socialism, big-tech bias and censorship, and the claim that the left is the party of science.
Uberman was in pastoral ministry for 18 years and states that over the years he started to see a recurring trend.
“More and more of our institutions were being invaded with leftist thought. At first I didn’t think much of it but as I saw the degradation of these institutions and the effect leftist thought had on, in particular, the church, I felt something had to be done,” said Uberman.
“All of this culminated with COVID – seeing churches respond to COVID and to the racial unrest in our nation. This caused me to realize that we need to return to truth and common sense principals.”
“As I prayed I felt like a desire to step from behind the pulpit and into the culture where the real battle for the heart and minds of Americans was being waged,” Uberman said.
Uberman states that he and his family handed over the church they started from scratch to a pastor friend and then moved back to Chattanooga to be closer to family and to start Indie Thinker.
“I think the church, specifically, and conservatives in general are losing the culture war and we need to step into the fray in as many ways as possible,” said Uberman.
Uberman states that the podcast will feature political guests, military, pastors, NGO’s, think tanks, athletes, scientist, doctors, etc. each week.
“We have conversations because I believe that civil discourse is dying in our generation and we need to reclaim it,” Uberman said.
