Episode 153: witchcraft

In this episode we are going to dive into the world of witchcraft with Nicholaj de Mattos Frisvold who is a behavioral psychologist, anthropologist and master brewer. During the last 25 years he has travelled extensively in search of traditional wisdom and spiritual legacies, with a particular focus on African and Afro derived traditions along with what is generally defined as traditional witchcraft in Europe. This has led to deep involvement with several streams of wisdom, such as traditional Ifá, Haitian Vodou, Palo Mayombe, Quimbanda and a rich knowledge of witchcraft in general. 

Check out his website Sacred Alchemy Store, his blog The Starry Cave or if you are interested in his books go to Scarlet Imprint.

Episode 149: the honest drug book

In this episode we are going to talk drugs with the author of The Honest Drug Book Dominic Milton Trott. His book presents the hidden truth about a topic which touches the lives of almost everyone. It cuts through the blustering rhetoric of the war on drugs, and documents the facts about the subject in general, and about the individual drugs specifically. Check it out: www.honestdrugbook.com

Note: I make a comment on the #metoo movement in this episode, and it seems a few women fail to see my point. To be clear, I am not against the movement and I think it is essential for a change to happen. I simply pointed out that there are other issues in the world that no one EVER seems to care about. Currently in Congo more people have been murdered in the last 20 years, than Hitler killed in his camps... why?

So people can have smartphones and be able to tweet #metoo.

What is happening in Congo is an issue that is important to me, and I was simply pointing out that whilst #metoo is also very important, it would be nice to see the rich privileged world join hands and stop the atrocities that are happening just so we can REMAIN rich. If you do not understand this perspective I am sorry you got triggered.

I have a daughter and I am going to teach her #ifmetooIcutyourdickoff
