EPISODE 110: Psychedelic Omnism Sailing: Faith, Drugs, and Music: Brodie

EPISODE 110: Psychedelic Omnism Sailing: Faith, Drugs, and Music: Brodie

We dive deep into Brodie’s story of exploring spirituality through meditation, mysticism, Krishna Consciousness, Native American Sweat Lodge, Bahá'í, Christianity, even marijuana and psychedelic mushrooms.  Maybe we aren’t meant to plant flags, and stop learning. Perhaps we all have a piece to this human puzzle...

EPISODE 109: The Music Speaks, Do We Listen?: Brodie Peterson

EPISODE 109: The Music Speaks, Do We Listen?: Brodie Peterson

Brodie Peterson is a hip hop artist, writer, and observer of music.

"My outer experience was going to college, my education, but music guided my inner experience."

"I spent thousands of hours seeking out music.  Studying it, music that would move my heart.  I would consider the lyrics and look for other versions of the song.  When something struck me, I wanted to know why."

We spend this episode getting to know his story and finding out what and how music changed his thinking, direction, and spirituality...

EPISODE 108: Off The Grid of Guilt, Coming Out, Tongues, and Sex: Holly Theriot

EPISODE 108: Off The Grid of Guilt, Coming Out, Tongues, and Sex: Holly Theriot

At this point, Holly and I have been drinking for hours.  So this conversation is full of tantalizing personal stories and experiences from our lives. Hollie's story of coming out, losing virginity, her first lesbian relationship and more. My story of marriage after religion, and healing from the PTSD of religion. 

Quantifying the value of an episode is hard because each is valuable in various ways for different reasons to us all.  This one holds a lot of value to me because we both find solidarity in our experiences as well as the joy of transparently sharing where each of us is in life today...

EPISODE 107: I Just Want to Be Human With Humans: Holly Theriot

Holly is a fantastic woman. She’s one of those people that lights up a room.  As soon as we met, there was an instant connection, and I’m excited for you to hear her story.  From a home grown CBN, 700 Club, Jim & Tammy Faye Bakker background to the beautiful human she is today, her story will encourage and challenge you to question what you've been told and embrace humanity.

She has a beautiful voice and is a vocalist in the Hip Hop band The Brodcast.  She shares that voice and their music with us...

EPISODE 088: How to Solve the Social Media Problem in Our Relationships: Daniel O’Connell

Join the steamy ride of our continued conversation from the last episode. A hilarious whirlwind through feminism, the women’s march, climate change, World War 3, the optimist viewpoint of Donald Trump being president, the problem with hell, and saving social media.  Don’t forget, hip hop, and a comedian moving into the rap game.

EPISODE 069: You See Me As a Rapper, a Character, But I’m a Person: Arthur Williams “KingDro”

EPISODE 069: You See Me As a Rapper, a Character, But I’m a Person: Arthur Williams “KingDro”

"They don’t wanna know me, they know that character.  They want to know that character." - Arthur Williams

This is Arthur Williams.  He’s a rapper, an artist, a character, even a comedian, but behind it all; he’s a person.  Too often we look to those who entertain us, represent us, or lead us as some kind of demagogues, but they're people.  We’re a finicky species.  If someone doesn’t please us to our liking, we move on.

However, there are real people behind the characters we see.  They deserve a shot!  They deserve to be heard.  The deserve to be human, to mess up, to grow, and to live their life without our input...

EPISODE 068: Black, White, Rap, Punk, Whatever: Art “KingDro” Will

“Cool people are cool people, that’s just the way it is.” - Art "KingDro" Will

Inevitably we talk about the black and white thing.  About the police, about Black Lives Matter, about our experiences with the cops, but we go far beyond that.  Because Art is way bigger than all of that and he shows it in his art form, how he treats people, and how he approaches life...
