I talk with Mike Jenney of Alter Der Ruine and Assemblage 23 about learning from the shadow self, performance as a gateway to the spiritual experience, random acts of kindness, and gratitude. We reminisce about our youth and I tell the story of how I survived falling to the bottom of a missile silo. Mike's a luminous dude and it was a pleasure. He'll be back and we'll get weirder.

I talk with Bobbi Brinks about her mission to rescue big cats, bears, and other refugees of the exotic animal trade. Bobbi travels the world saving animals and has created a sanctuary called Lions, Tigers and Bears which sets the bar high.
I speak with Morgan Sorne on his way to perform at Tucson's All Soul's Procession. He is a super-human vocalist, artist, and teacher with a down to Earth view of how to heal self and the world. We discuss the urgency of listening, the method of finding our voices, the welcoming of silence, and the rediscovery of awe in everyday life. In short, the way out of fear and the way into presence.
Mark Devries, creator of Speciesism: The Movie and I talk about the grim realities behind the smokescreen of Big Ag, the true cost of animal exploitation, veganism as direct activism, and the future of mankind. You know, just regular Thursday coffee talk.
