Teal Swan: Is she a cult leader?
In this one, I try to use Teal Swan as a background for a conversation around memory, trauma, created narratives, pain, and the spiritual experience, and gurus…I hope you like it:) Who is Teal Swan?“The best way to describe Teal Swan is as an American spiritual leader. Though she maintains in The Deep End that she never sought to become a leader, her current career started around 2011. That’s when she published her first book, The Sculptor in the Sky, and launched her YouTube channel. From there, her popula...

Game of Thrones: Political Violence
Hello friends, probably my last Game of Thrones episode for a long time! Anyway, in this one, I do a short review of season 8, mainly because I think you need to know where I stand on it.

Game of Thrones forces us to ask the political question, what are you willing to support in the name of a cause you believe in? So, in this one, I dive into that question and connect it to some thoughts...

Understanding Free Speech and the Privilege of having an Audience
The recent news story about Facebook banning people such as Alex Jones and Laura Loomer had my mind working about a topic I don't like talking about—free speech.
