About This Podcast

September 3, 2017
This is a podcast about communication.  While he has always had an interest in this topic, Jason wished to focus on it after pursuing a graduate degree in Communication Studies at Northern Arizona University.

This program had been eye-opening to him as he came to realize how complex communication really is, and how little thought the average person gives to its importance and effects on our day-to-day lives.  He decided to develop a podcast about communication in 2017 as a response to a long-standing (and increasing) division between people based on differing social, political, and religious views. 

Presently, it does not appear that the refusal to communicate in a benevolent fashion has ceased, and in fact has only increased in the United States in recent months.  

Fortunately, there are voices in popular discourse that call for rational discussion and a commitment to civil communication.  This podcast is intended to do just that, and to call attention to those who do likewise.  

The First Amendment grants U.S. citizens the freedom of speech, and it should be rigorously defended.  Between The Lines With Jason Martinez stands for the freedom of speech in just about every imaginable context.
