Hello Ideapodder,

This weekend sees the Land of the Free celebrating the anniversary of becoming just that.

But what exactly is #Freedom? Has it altered over the centuries, or have its fundamentals remained consistent?

Ley’s take a look at a few different ideas concerning one of the human race’s greatest achievements:

Hello Ideapodder,

Following on from last week's updates, we want to get back to what we do best … sharing your ideas.

Given this weekend represents one of the most important times of year for more than one global religion, it seems apt to spend a little time considering the very idea of religion itself.

Feel free to join the discussions, or start your own!

As always, we'd love your feedback — drop us a line at founders@ideapod.com.

Given it’s Easter, is this appropriate?

Hello Ideapodder,

Yet again, America has witnessed a senseless expression of violence and hatred, this time at a church in Charleston.

We at Ideapod are a society of thoughtful, open-minded people seeking to affect positive change in our world.

So, how can we work together – as a global community – to prevent these horrors in the future?

Dear Ideapodders,

This week, we’re teaming up with ADC Forum, an Australian, non-political, not-for-profit leadership organization which brings together leaders from business, government, universities and civil society to improve their understanding of key issues affecting Australia.

The theme for the 20th Australian Leadership Retreat is “Thinking the Unthinkable”. We see this as a challenge to explore the outer boundaries of what we’re capable of in pursuit of creating a better world.

Naturally, our incredible community of Ideapodders have already broached this topic with thoughts such as the following:

The sharing economy will change the world

What’s more, just as we did with Virgin a few weeks ago, we’re opening up the invitation to you, our wonderful Ideapod community, to post your own ideas about this subject at www.ideapod.com.

Simply use the hashtag #adcideas when writing your ideas on Ideapod and you too could contribute to the discussion of Australia’s leading minds.
