Ideapod. For People Who

the earth

In a polarized world, ideas need to bring people together.

Ideapod is a source of inspiration for people who see things differently. Our platform helps people to escape from societal and educational conditioning so they can live life on their own terms and turn ideas into reality.

Our platform promotes much more than a free exchange of ideas. We support people in building a deeper connection with themselves, others around them and society more broadly. We believe this helps to create the conditions for ideas to become meaningful and ultimately change the world.

Our online publishing platform has thousands of articles exploring the ideas shaping our world, reaching millions of people every month. We also provide online education programs providing our students with the knowledge and tools to break free from societal conditioning and live life on their own terms.

Thanks for stopping by to check out Ideapod. Since 2014 we’ve created a platform designed to be a source of inspiration for people wanting to escape from societal and educational conditioning so they can think for themselves and live life on their own terms. I’m particularly excited by our two new online journeys, Out of the Box and Developing Your Personal Power. Also, I can’t wait to launch the Filter Bubble Buster, a new search engine surfacing perspectives from around the web that liberate people from echo chambers. I’d love to meet you in our new social network, Ideapod Discussions or from signing up to our weekly newsletter.

Filter Bubble Buster (Coming Soon)

The filter bubble is “a situation in which an Internet user encounters only information and opinions that conform to and reinforce their own beliefs, caused by algorithms that personalize an individual’s online experience.”

We’re building a search engine for perspectives that unite people from within seemingly disparate echo chambers.

Rudá Iandê reveals the dark side of “positive thinking”

“Focus on the power of your thoughts and you will transform your reality.” Thousands of books, workshops and self-help gurus repeat the same mantra: “change your thoughts, change your life.” If only the mythical “law of attraction” worked for even half the people who tried it! We’d need a bigger Hollywood for all the positive More
