    Raghu is back fresh from an India trip to talk with OG Mindroller, David Silver, about life, death, Pema Chödrön, and the way you live.

    "I took my first acid trip and experienced groundlessness as if I was dead. I was terrified. Working through that—as everybody does who does psychedelic transformative substances in the right way—I realized there was groundlessness in my life as if I were dead. I was shocked. Going through that, I began to notice this was worth massive focus." – David Silver

Practical Wisdom

Along with the Ram Dass Here and Now podcasts, I listen to ALL of these shows.

Raghu is openminded, honest and humble. He prepares properly and respectfully for the wide range of guests he interviews. His recent one with Dr Gabor Maté was brilliant and prompted me to finally review the show.

Thank you for all of your work.

Common Sense Spirituality

Two guys who have a relationship like an older married couple will both amuse and inform you about the self while keeping it entertaining and not too "New Agee".

Well worth a listen.

Your soul will thank you.

Spirituality

Cover some great topics particularly the spirituality side.
Only time I had to stop listening is when they said the 9/11 official story was the truth.
That failed my litmus test big time.
