The Pandemic as Societal Tuning Fork in the Road

The Pandemic as Societal Tuning Fork in the Road

Show notes


I'm taking this opportunity to go solo to share some musings, perspectives, & reflections on the current situation by sending a trippy lil broadcast from my cozy little quarantine to yours. I hope it puts a smile on your face & thoughts in your mind, & that this blend of cosmic, comedic, & contemplative content is a welcome distraction into the heartland. At any rate, you’ll learn a few (bad) words in Dutch.

Originally, I just wanted to share a short, sound-scaped story called “The Man in the Jungle” with you (previously only available on my Patreon page) in order to cross-reference my recent appearances on the Third Eye Drops podcast and The Cosmic Nod podcast—both of which were heavily Ayahuasca themed—just like the story. But then the apocalypse started, so I thought why not ponder & pander to the pandemic theme for a few bars, & tie it in to the tale by riffing on the shipibo-placebo model of healing through the imagination. So here’s all of that, & more. You'd be missing out, but if you wanna skip straight to the story—it starts about 21 minutes in.

I’ll be back soon with episode 5, featuring multi-dimensional artist & musician Morgan Sorne. I suggest you start familiarizing yourself with his work before the next episode drops, starting here.

Until then, stay safe & stay the hell away from each other! ;-)
