Gordon White returns to the show with first-time guest Jay Springett to talk solarpunk, a movement in speculative fiction, art, fashion and activism. It’s infrastructure as resistance, it’s ingenuity, generativity, independence and community, and it asks the question: “What does a sustainable civilization look like and how can we get there?”
Nikki Wyrd is in the house for a chat inspired by a lecture she gave in Berlin last fall on age-old magic and ways to approach death. An appropriate time for such a chat here in the northern hemisphere because we’re right in the middle of winter, and also appropriate considering recent space weather. Lot of things changing, lot of things evolving, lot of things ending, lot of things dying.
Jasun Horsley returns to the podcast for a conversation about his latest book, The Vice of Kings: How Socialism, Occultism and the Sexual Revolution Engineered a Culture of Abuse. The title is quite reflective of the content of the book and the content of this conversation. Definitely one that’ll rattle some cages.
Jeff Nixa is a shamanic practitioner, teacher and author of The Lost Art of Heart Navigation: A Modern Shaman’s Field Manual. Jeff is in the house to talk about what’s known as the heart path: taking wisdom from ancient shamanic traditions and using it to teach ourselves how to follow our heart so we live a more fulfilling life.
Dr. Armin Zahdeh is the author of The Forgotten Art of Love: What Love Means and Why It Matters, which revisits psychologist Erich Fromm’s The Art of Loving and examines love through the lenses of biology, philosophy, history, religion, sociology and economics to provide a contemporary understanding of love.
