Friendly Jordies (aka Jordan Shanks) is a controversial political satirist and podcast creator. In 2021, hit pieces by main stream media have only strengthened his resolve to call out political corruption and media bias.
He has produced over 700 no-holds-barred videos for his YouTube channel, has over 600,000 thousand followers on social media and his videos have been viewed over 150 million times.

"Ever since I learned there was a propaganda model created in the early 1900s that filters all media so the public only sees what the elite want them to see I have been obsessively tracking its ramifications. It's truly horrific. There is no democracy. It's all a lie..."
