Guy & Mike Are Batting Well Over Five Hundred!

In their new radio hour, Nature Bats Last, two itinerant prophets of doom spend an hour helping thousands and thousands of us feel less alone in our awareness that homo sapiens cannot sustain the complexities of modern life for much longer. Without pandering or cow towing to the dominant cultural narrative they model kindness, awareness, grieving, and a sour-cream-sized dollop of gallows humour. They are brilliant and their guests are too. Tune in each week to see how they can surprise their guests with what a real, authentic, curious interview sounds and feels like. Find yourself laughing and talking back--out loud--as the show progresses. Notice you are agreeing instead of sputtering like you do at the television 'news.' Save your episodes so you will have them as long as the electricity holds out. And once you discover all this for yourself and realise Phorus is another word for 'psychic,' do them a favour and come on back here and write a review so that other people can know this kind of Reality with us. Ta, your Devil From Down Under, Phorus Castaña
