    # 108 — Pandemic with Chief Seattle

    Nic Lazz joins us for another look at the current situation and how we are addressing it personally, locally. We begin with some apologies and clarification regarding episode 107, move on to the cocktail for this episode — a variant of the Black Manhattan — and then get into all things Corona, wealth redistribution, population control, and a few rabbit holes. We end the episode with Michael reciting a speech (or letter) attributed to Chief Seattle as quoted in Buckminster Fuller's book titled "Critical Path". As powerful and moving as these words are, they are fictional, embellishing Seattle's original words for effect as part of a movie script written in 1971 by Ted Perry. Many have quoted these words, including Al Gore, in his book, "Earth in the Balance" (1992).This actually compels a future discussion about words, how we use them, how we are moved by them, and whether the real source matters as long as we recognize and acknowledge it. If a call to action is based on misattributed words and the outcome is positive for our species and our environment — the planet — where's the wrong? To quote Barbara Mikkelson, "... the Chief Seattle Speech has something to teach us all: So if we sell you our land, love it as we have loved it. Care for it as we have cared for it. We may be brothers after all."That Perry's eloquent speech turned Chief Seattle into a manufactured prophet matters little to us because, after all, we are NonProphet.

    # 107 Pandemic with Nic Lazz

    Nic Lazz dropped by after a couple of weeks of self-quarantine so we recorded a conversation that was attended by him, Kegan, Michael, Mark, TOKI and some other whiskey, the name of which has faded from memory. We figured we should have a bit of fun instead being all gloom and doom and colon self-care advice so we brought in the 80s action movie characters and let them speak their minds as well.

    # 106 — The Bern Don't Run

    Two weeks into the quarantine, isolation, distancing, whatever ... Kegan, Michael and Mark get together to share ideas, air, maybe some spit, and to confront human nature and the individually-driven behavior that has not yet been modified by microbes or the National Guard. We discuss Universal (National) Basic Income, flash mobs as revolution, or at least political pressure, our currently restricted movement as governmental telegraphing of the future, and — as ever — ignorant yet powerful people fighting tooth and nail (as if they have any idea what that means) to keep the power they believe they will have in perpetuity.

    George Briones joins Kegan, Michael and Mark to talk about anything but the COVID-19 situation, although we also explored that a little bit. Mostly it is rabbit holes about banking, politicians, quarantined-fitness, drinking, astral planes, see 10, do 10, tag 10 and the logical conclusion for a psychonaut, and finally, near the end of the discussion, how to shape the radii of a hydration bladder hose to make insertion less uncomfortable. If you were looking for fitness advice, find it in the show notes.

    Kegan rejoins us from isolation, which we all hope was long enough, and will address if we learn differently. Mark launched with the topic of "How to Enrich Yourself by Seeking Political Office" and things became rather impassioned from there. Some solutions were proposed and the scrubbing of current consciousness hypothesized as a possible benefit of the current, viral situation. We offered a few tips on toilet paper usage, which foods to buy and which to avoid, why you should spend resources wisely rather than counting on debt-forgiveness and governmental munificence. And we talked about how we will provide assistance micro-locally despite our relatively meager assets. Tune in. Turn on. Cause positive change.

    # 103 — Pandemic and Earthquake

    We brought Kegan into the studio via FaceTime today so that, despite being in self-quarantine after some international air travel, we could record a podcast. This is the first ever "call-in" episode of the NonProphet podcast and while the audio isn't great, it isn't unlistenable either. We start the episode discussing the 5.7 magnitude earthquake that hit Salt Lake City this morning, which was followed by four dozen aftershocks, one as high as 4.6, contributing to the general uncertainty of these times. The conversation offers no solutions other than to take the social distancing and isolation seriously, do it voluntarily, do it now, educate yourself, and get ready for more than a 14-day vacation with Netflix. The peak is further down the road than you think.
