In this diverse and innovative space, we facilitate a highly collaborative, open-minded conversation diving into the issues our society faces today, while being sure to bring corresponding resolution to the forefront . We’re here to address the problems whilst collaborating on visionary solutions, as our increasingly interdependent yet fractured global society struggles through intersecting crises in these unparalleled times of change. The monetary system is at the heart of our society. It touches everything in our lives, it dictates who lives and dies. We believe a bright future for humanity is one without currency. Society is collapsing before our eyes, and there has never been a more vital or exciting opportunity to both come together for the sake of forestalling the end of human life as we know it, while also recreating life on earth as we know it.

    EP# 18 ‘Human Nature‘ with Professor Jeff Cates, M.A.

    In the final episode of the first season of Moneyless Society, we dig into the portentous subject of human nature. So often is this term used to justify the worst human behaviors and to dissuade any advancement toward a society that provides for all, as if it's in our nature to hoard resources, compete each other out of existence and destroy our own habitat for a made up social construct like money.

    Tune in for an expansive in-depth conversation with professor of sociology Jeff Cates M.A, as we discuss these strange beings we call humans, the history of money, the effects of mass media, and his personal journey from a single father working construction to meeting Jacques Fresco and changing his life forever when he encountered the possibilities of a resource based economy to transform our environment and rehabilitate our debased human nature.


    This will be our last episode...wink wink...for our first season. Thank you so much to our listeners, fans, and Partreon subscribers. We're just getting started.

    EP #17 ‘Automation: How Robots WILL Take Your Job (and why that‘s awesome)’

    EP #17 ‘Automation: How Robots WILL Take Your Job (and why that‘s awesome)’

    Imagine a dystopian future of flying autonomous death machines, where robots control everything in an alienating world with little opportunity to make a living...Now look out the window and realize: we're already there.


    Automation is inevitable, and in this epic episode we talk to the owner of Gearwork Gaming, a sociologist and roboticist using automation to pay people to do nothing. Intrigued yet? Listen in as we break down this crucial issue and show how automation technology can be applied, changing our direction from a horrible nightmare future to a glorious reality where all of us are free to do what makes us happy, and work together to build the world we want to live in.

    Ep #16 'General STRIKE' with Labormovementx.org Organizers


    STRIKE! In this episode we talk with Labor Movement X organizers, ‘Rosie’ and ‘JJ’ about why a #generalstrike approach is perhaps THE most powerful move we can collectively make to tip the scales of the exploitative owner/laborer power structures we know, into the hands of the working class to start reshaping the landscape of labor in the United States and beyond. Listen in as we discuss the ways which this neo-labor movement varies from the always popular Marxist tactics and why this new approach presents monumental potential for aiding the people who are called essential but treated as disposables. Workers of the world unite!

    EP #15 “Breaking Our Attachment To Profit’

    EP #15 “Breaking Our Attachment To Profit’

    Civilization is caught in a deadly cycle of addictive attachment to take more than it gives - profit. We can all see the corruption in our world from politicians to corporations to the fossil fuel industries that put their material gains over people and planet. Profit is the prophet of our doom, and in this episode we talk to economist Nikhil Kulkarni about his Zero Profit business model, and the deeper spiritual motivation that drives him.


    We discuss alternative business models, the problems with profit, and explore the spiritual side discussing the illusions of our world and the way out of this cycle through changing our values from profit to purpose.

    EP #14 ‘The Art of Revolution in The Covid Renaissance’ with Future Now Radio Hosts Troy Wiley and Robert Schram

    EP #14 ‘The Art of Revolution in The Covid Renaissance’ with Future Now Radio Hosts Troy Wiley and Robert Schram

    If history shows us anything, it's that our core beliefs about how the world works can be totally wrong. An established order who grows up believing the earth is the center of the universe doesn't take too kindly to anyone who challenges their core beliefs. In this dark age of repressive ideology that asserts that money is the center of our universe, we're here to challenge that belief and bring on a new renaissance, a new world. In this episode we talk with Troy Wiley and Robert Schram of Future Now, and dive deep into the paradigm shifts that will turn the old world upside down, and the artistic revolution of reimagining and re-creating our entire cosmology around what is real and possible, liberating the individual and collective in the process.

    EP #13/ Part 2 ‘Ecology and Technology’ with Helena Norberg-Hodge

    EP #13/ Part 2 ‘Ecology and Technology’ with Helena Norberg-Hodge

    In part two of our talk with founder of Local Futures, Helena Norberg Hodge, we move past the larger topic of localization to discuss the role and sustainability of technology in creating an ecological society. We get into a stirring debate about whether technology can be sustainably used and developed and whether it is the root of industrial decay. We posit that the system governing it, not the technology, is the real problem and discuss how technology must play a crucial role in transitioning our society.
