DEER AND THUNDER
with Arkan Lushwala
Today I have a conversation with a really amazing indigenous healer, Arkan Lushwala, who is a Peruvian ceremonial leader and was adopted by a Lakota Elder named Basil Brave Heart. Arkan has written a couple books and is a very humble man. In fact, he’s the only podcast guest I’ve had who, when I asked him to describe himself, says, “First, as a farmer.” Please take anything you hear in this interview with some caution, particularly some of the rituals and ceremonies that he talks about.

A FULFILLING LIFE AND A BETTER WORLD
with Colin Beavan
Colin Beavan is the author of No Impact Man, the Adventures of a Guilty Liberal who Attempts to Save the Planet and the Discoveries He Makes About Himself and Our Way of Life in the Process. Colin has also written a book called How To Be Alive. I found Colins’s book used at a second-hand bookstore, it is printed on post-consumer waste paper, and printed with soy ink. That’s no surprise given that it contains the stories and experiences of a man who lived a year without producing any trash, purchasing any goods except for food grown within a 250...
ENDING UPSIDE DOWN THINKING
with Mark Gober
Mark Gober is the author of An End to Upside Down Thinking: Dispelling the Myth that the Brain Produces Consciousness and the Implications for Everyday Life. Mark explores many different areas of life that we don’t often talk. Things like psychedelics, remote viewing, telepathy, precognition, psychokinesis, near-death experiences, communications with the deceased, and children who remember previous lives. It’s not, in my opinion, woo woo or out there. Mark takes a very level look the science and research conducted over decades in places like Princeton or Stanford by well respected scientists and researchers. There’s something strange going on in the...
BELLA GAIA AND BEYOND
with Kenji Williams
Kenji Williams is a composer and director for multimedia live theater, mixed reality, and interactive data visualization. What does that mean? Well, I met Kenji at an event in San Francisco where he showed me Bella Gaia through VR, a view of the planet earth that just blew my mind. It helped me to experience not only the beauty but the interconnectivity, the fragility of planet earth, and I was absolutely blown away. Kenji talks about his journey as a multidisciplinary artist beginning at age six as a classically trained violinist, an artistic production with artist Alex Gray, and more.
HOPE IS THE PRETTY FACE OF FEAR
with Paul Hawken
Paul is an environmentalist, entrepreneur, author, and activist. Paul is the author of at least eight books, many articles, blog posts. President Bill Clinton called his book, Natural Capitalism, one of the five most important books today. Paul’s latest book is called Drawdown, The Most Comprehensive Plan Ever Proposed To Reverse Global Warming. Although Paul didn’t write this book Drawdown to give hope, he calls hope the pretty mask of fear. Saying instead that we must be fearless, not hopeful. I think you’ll find something in Paul’s interview here, something in Paul’s writing, that will help you to live more...

THE WORLD WITHOUT US
with Alan Weisman
Alan Weisman is an author who’s worked on seven continents and more than 50 countries. He’s written six books and the book that I talked to him most about is The World Without Us. It began as a thought experiment about what would happen if humanity disappeared from the planet. How long would it take for nature to rejuvenate, or would it at all? He’s a journalist, who wanted to be a scientist as a kid and had so many passions and curiosities that he decided he would write about them all. I hope that what you take away from...
