Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda. Using a pastry blender or 2 knives, cut the shortening into the flour mixture until coarse crumbs form. Add the buttermilk, tossing with a fork until a dough forms. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Gather into a disk.
Knead lightly a few more times just until smooth. Pat the dough to 3/4 inch thick. Using a biscuit cutter or a glass dipped in flour, cut out biscuits. place the biscuits, 2 inches apart, on an ungreased baking sheet. Gather dough trimmings, pat to 3/4 inch thick, and cut out more biscuits. Bake the biscuits until golden, 12-15 minutes. Serve hot.
