“That’s what this show’s all about; it’s not wading you through the kiddie pool, it’s throwing you all into the deep end and seeing if you can swim.”
-Jake Counts

On this first and inaugural episode of the One Step Beyond Podcast, we use the Trivium Method to define One Step Beyond, its purpose, form, and function. We also give a detailed breakdown of the podcast’s logo and explain its more esoteric elements. Wrapping up this first episode, we give our listeners a sneak preview of the FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) requests being filed by One Step Beyond that will soon manifest into more concrete research. Just a casual conversation between myself, Josh Wiley, and One Step Beyond’s co-founder Jake Counts of We Are Not Cattle before we hit the ground running in Episode 2.

We had a couple issues with Skype latency/echo while recording, but not so much that it hinders the listening experience. Fret not, though! We’re going to be recording our audio individually and combining it in post for future episodes for the sake of consistency.

Stay tuned!
