I Almost Died and It Was Kind of Psychedelic
No, this title isn't just clickbait. I’ve undergone what I guess I’d call a disruptive life-quaking adventure. What follows is a loose, to-the-point riff recalling the tale.
Don’t think I’ve ever been as aligned on an innermost level with anyone’s ideas as I have with Michael P’s. Great to hear someone so connected. A must-listen.
Makes my eternal being feel at home
Love Michael’s humor and the way his mind works, his chats with Erik Godsey and Corey Allen are the best. Thanks for what you do. Peace and love, everyone!
My regular dose of wonderment, joy and inspiration!
I deeply love this podcast, without exaggeration. It feels like sitting with a bunch of the most inspiring, funny, erudite friends who love to shoot the breeze about the topics I’m most passionate about. I look forward to every new episode.
Thank you Michael and all your guests. Throughout this pandemic era, I can’t tell you how much of a salve it’s been. I feel a bit less lonely in the world knowing there are folks out there who think, talk and ponder much like I do.
