Censorship Costs Lives: Brian Rose Keeps it Real in London with Dave Asprey : 776

This episode of Bulletproof Radio is a little different. I’m featuring Brian Rose, the founder, CEO and host of the wildly popular London Real podcast, livestream platform, TV show and multi-media company. He’s a great friend, longtime supporter and the current frontrunner in London’s political race for mayor.

 Brian left a career in banking that spanned Chicago, New York and London to start the London Real podcast in 2011. He wanted to broadcast content he couldn’t find in the mainstream media. His aim was to have real conversations with real people, so his show featured guests that could come on and speak in unscripted, unedited and uncensored ways. “I do not agree with everything you say,” he proclaims, “but I will defend to the death your right to say it.”

With that mindset, he’s created a multi-media business reaching billions (yes, billions) of people around the globe.

“And then 2020 came,” Brian says. “And there was a lot of fear out there. And people didn't know who to trust and people weren't trusting the mainstream media. They weren't trusting the governments. And so we decided to start having voices on that might offer some alternative opinions.” 

In April, one of the YouTube London Real episodes was deleted and banned without notice because “it violated their community guidelines.” After nine years on a channel with half a billion views, Brian realized just how heavily censorship limited the content he could create.

“I soon realized that censorship was real,” Brian says. “We got censored on Facebook, on Instagram, I got kicked off of LinkedIn, my TED Talk disappeared off their channel for about a week, PayPal, Vimeo pulled my videos, Dropbox pulled my account.”

 So, he took action and created his own livestream platform, raising a million dollars in 11 days for what’s now called the Digital Freedom Platform. There, he’s interviewed Nobel Prize winners, scientists, doctors, nurses, professors emeritus from MIT, four star generals and more.

 But that’s not all. He wants to make change on an even more massive scale, so he’s running to be mayor of Londonas an independent candidate. Through his Transform London 2021 plan executed with strong leadership, he believes he can make London a world-class capital city once again and one of the most desirable places in the world to live, work and visit.

“Our mission statement on the wall [at London Real] is to create a mass scale transformation of humanity into a fully empowered conscious and cooperative species,” says Brian. “But being mayor of London is the way I could really, really do that. So, it's exciting. It's scary. It's nerve wracking, it's uncomfortable, but I love it.”

I can’t wait for you to hear this episode, where Brian and I talk about censorship, current events, and his larger plans for transforming London.
