Jason Zuk, The Social Psychic Radio Show and Podcast
- Publisher: Jason Zuk The Social Psychic
- Total Episodes: 140
Originally this podcast focused exclusively on topics surrounding Spirituality. With recent events and the turmoil concerning the murder of George Floyd at the hands of the Minneapolis Police Department along with the murders of countless others, a major paradigm shift is underway within our society. This show will expand its programming to include topics that highlight our desire to eradicate inequality, systemic racism, and to gain greater accountability from our elected leaders and the law enforcement community so that we as a society can improve the lives of millions. Jason offers a unique perspective as an Attorney and Psychic Medium and within the context of Spirituality. As an attorney, Jason is licensed to practice law in Florida, Mississippi, Alabama, Texas and New Jersey. He received his legal training by earning his Juris Doctorate from Nova Southeastern University and by attaining a Masters of Law (LL.M.) in International Law and Comparative Law from Georgetown University. Jason realized his psychic abilities immediately following his grandfather’s death in 2004 after he began to experience significant spiritual events that caused his mediumship abilities to flourish over time. Jason believes by coming together from a spiritual approach we can engage in healthy and constructive dialogue with the goal of gaining a greater understanding and awareness of these complex issues so that true reform can result. Jason supports the Black Lives Matter Movement. While Spiritual Topics will continue to be an important part of the show, Jason will also present topics addressing the desire to protect our Environment, Reform our Criminal Justice System, and Safeguard every Citizen from Police Brutality. “We the People Means EVERYONE.”

The Cultivate Podcast is all about deepening our understanding of Scripture for a deeper love of Jesus. That’s my simple hope. Yet we live in a crazy busy culture that makes it hard to prioritize Bible study. Not to mention, for many of us the Bible can be plain confusing or intimidating. That’s why I’m so excited about this podcast! We’ll get to study God’s Word together. Absolutely nothing has gone after every crevice of my heart like Scripture. It’s the most relevant and alive book on earth and I can’t wait for God to meet you exactly where you’re at as we open the Bible together. I also happen to love cooking, gardening, having people over, and deep relationships. So I’ll always do my best to keep it real, practical, and personal. Whether you’re brand new to the Bible or a seasoned student of Scripture, I hope you’ll join me on this hopeful journey.New episodes air every Tuesday. Make sure to subscribe so you never miss an episode. About Kelly MinterHi There. My name is Kelly Minter and I’m a Bible study author and teacher. I’ve written several Bible studies for Lifeway, including Finding God Faithful, All Things New, No Other Gods, Ruth, and a few others. I love to teach the Bible at my Cultivate Events across the country and also locally at my home church. I have a passion for missions, which is why I also work in the Amazon jungles of Brazil and the Eastern European country of Moldova with Justice & Mercy International. I wrote a book about my work in the Amazon called Wherever The River Runs. It’s dear to my heart. I also love cooking, gardening, and having people to my house. It turns out, I pretty much wanted to write about that too, so a cookbook called A Place at the Table was born. Mostly, I love engaging with people as we study God’s Word together, which is why I’m especially excited about the brand new Cultivate Podcast.
