Today's Freemasonry through Masonic research papers of the past and present. Discussions on the Fraternity through modern technology made accessible to both Freemasons and men interested in Freemasonry.
Human Survival: Collecting Traits and Virtues
Does Freemasonry have a mascot? If it had a mascot, What would it look like? What would it represent? What does it send as a message to the outside community? Then, we’ll talk about the origin of the human species. What traits does the Homo sapien have, and how did they lead to our current state of modern survival and comfort? And likewise, what are the virtues that have been collected over time to form the civil societies that we live in? Does Freemasonry have something to do with it? Thanks for listenin
Freemasonry's Outlook for Mars
This week we explore what the New Age Magazine once thought about Martian life and how to communicate with Mars. Then, we hear from Illustrious Brother Steven L. Harrison as he gives us the perfect recipe for putting on a Masonic event. We'll wrap it up with a discussion on fear and how Freemasonry can help us overcome our base fears, our irrational fears--what Sigmund Freud called our neurotic fear. All this and more coming right up. Stay tuned!
The Top 10 Books of the Millennium So Far
Join us this week for an incredible interview with Brothers Dago and Ian of the Fraternal Review!

We also have a candid conversation about the role of literature in Masonic culture and the importance of recognizing what today's Freemasons are reading. What can we learn about growing our fraternity by knowing what is being actively read? Tune in and find out!
Titles in Leadership
This week we explore a conundrum about Lodges. For those of us out there who have no specific dogma in our religions, if we even have one, could Lodge be considered a church? We'll explore this question in great detail. Then, what do female hummingbirds and their flashy feathers have to do with Freemasonry? Here's a clue, flashy colors equals lapel pins and medals. How do we use those? How do we define titles? And should we get rid of titles altogether?
Protesting Masonic Privilege
This week, we ask the question, “Is honesty the best policy? Or is there something else?” Then, we hear about an organized protest in 1874 from the nefarious Ezra A. Cook. What was he protesting, and why? We’ll dive into this and uncover the proverbial storm over a corner laying ceremony. All this and a little bit more in this episode of “Whence Came You?” Stay tuned!
Mystical to Practical: Finding Balance
This week, we continue the conversation about ritual--its importance and meaning. Then we'll hear from Ill. Bro.

We wrap it up with a piece on balance or equilibrium--how we can utilize that thinking in making our lives better. All this and more, stay tuned!
