    Binyamin Appelbaum on how economists rose to rule the world

    Binyamin Appelbaum on how economists rose to rule the world

    Binyamin Appelbaum, of The New York Times, talks about his book, The Economists' Hour, which traces the rise of the economists, first in the United States and then around the globe, as their ideas reshaped the modern world, curbing government, unleashing corporations and hastening globalization.

    Binyamin Appelbaum is the lead writer on business and economics for the Editorial Board of The New York Times. He joined the board in March 2019. He was previously a Washington correspondent for the Times, covering the Federal Reserve and other aspects of economic policy. Appelbaum has previously worked for The Florida Times-Union, The Charlotte Observer, The Boston Globe and The Washington Post. His book, The Economists' Hour, was published in September 2019.

    LYRICS TO 'CHANGE WITHOUT PAIN':

    What kind of world are we living in?
    When going out, is giving in
    Do you feel we're one?
    Or that you're the only one
    And can we change without pain?

    The fractured land society
    The prophets failed it's plain to see
    Where's the broad prosperity
    Promised by their reign
    And can we change without pain?

    Do you ever feel these changes?
    Altogether, going through changes

    Economists now, have all control
    Companies bought, our very souls
    In the Economists Hour
    Hard to explain
    How we change without pain

    Do you ever feel these changes?
    Altogether, going through changes

    100th episode! Unique one-off celebratory album track-by-track with Brian Keneipp and Paul Nugent

    100th episode! Unique one-off celebratory album track-by-track with Brian Keneipp and Paul Nugent

    We made it to 100 episodes in just over a year. Well done to the whole team. Thanks to the guests, the musicians, the listeners, everyone! How should we celebrate our one-hundredth episode? - it has to be something special edition. And it is. Because I originally started Podsongs as a way to help publicise the Aetherius society, the spiritual organisation that I’m a member of. And about 12 of the last 100 guests were from the Aetherius Society. Two directors of the society in LA—Brian Keneipp and Paul Nugent—agreed to come on and give a special track by track commentary, with some extra metaphysical insights.

    The album is called 'Through slits in the chrysalis'—meaning the truths we get glimpses of, through cracks in our cocoons—and will be available on all platforms from 1st January.

    Tracks:

    1 The Prison of Materialism
    2 The Violet Flame
    3 The Mother Earth
    4 The Healer
    5 Most Caterpillars Don't Believe In Butterflies
    6 The Mighty Sun
    7 If The Bombs Go Off
    8 Pranayama
    9 Serve
    10 Hymn of the Blessings
    11 Bravery
    12 Don't Dwell on your Physical Shell
    13 The Absolute
    14 Blind and Groping in the Dark

    Moving forward.... In 2022 we'll be switching to an episode every fortnight which is what many other shows do, like Song Exploder the next best music podcast. Podsongs has become all-consuming... Because it's not just the production of the podcast that takes time - now I have to find musical guests who want to collaborate, finding a guest expert for them to interview, researching, recording, editing.... and then making the songs of course, which has been huge.... but it's also that now we give every song a special single release, with marketing, promotion, a music video... we're a proper record company. And two singles a month is still a lot.

    And even on top of that, another new idea for next year is that I want to release episodes with video as well - but we need something extra special for Podsongs - so not just talking heads, but as well as each episode inspiring a song, it will also inspire a painting..... I'm asking artists to video themselves creating a piece inspired by the conversation - so on youtube, you'll have a split-screen of the interview and the artist painting a picture in real-time. It's evolving into a gesamtkunstwerk - as we have music, dancers in the music videos. Maybe some literature in future, with story readings instead of interviews. I don't know how I can get architecture in there, but if you have an idea let me know.

    Martyn Williams - Mountaineer: on a lifetime filled with barely believable adventurers

    Martyn Williams - Mountaineer: on a lifetime filled with barely believable adventurers

    An incredible episode with a mountaineer turned Transformational Teacher and Coach for living an Enlightening Life. He's a world-record-holding expedition leader, who led expeditions to Everest, the North Pole, and the South Pole. As well as succeeding in business: he created the first commercial airline in Antarctica and other multiple multi-million dollar businesses. Other notable achievements include initiating a global youth empowerment project involving 60 million young people and producing a Primetime TV documentary. To cap it all he has now travelled on a spiritual adventure and has taught meditation to monks in India and around the world. He lives in constant bliss, joy, love, and creativity.

    LYRICS to "Moment of Truth":

    I am ready, for revelations
    I am ready, for open eyes
    I am ready, for sacrifice

    I'm ready for love
    I'm ready for loss
    I'm ready for truth

    I'm ready for an open eye
    I'm ready for the truth inside

    I'm ready for a turn of the wheel
    I'm ready for electric feel

    I'm ready to give up dislikes
    I'm ready for the great insights

    I'm ready, leave it all behind
    I'm ready for a higher mind

    I'm ready for love
    I'm ready for loss
    I'm ready for truth

    I'm about to believe
    Open my heart and receive

    I'm about to believe
    Show me how show me now

    Cos I'm about to believe
    Ready to know and perceive

    I'm about to believe
    Ready to see, There's more than me

    I'm about to believe
    I'm on the eve, to receive
    Tell me tell me

    How, I can slowly perceive
    The truth as it breathes open my eyes, I'm ready

    A matter of time  
    A matter of faith
    A matter of grace - ooooooh

    I'm about to believe
    to receive
    Come on, come on, come on, come on

    About to believe
    Open my heart and receive

    I'm ready, I'm ready, I'm ready,
    Help me now, show me how

    Ooooooh

    Charles Eisenstein on the unravelling of civilisation (ft. musical guest Brian Bulger)

    Charles Eisenstein on the unravelling of civilisation (ft. musical guest Brian Bulger)

    Charles Eisenstein is an American public speaker and author. His work covers a wide range of topics, including the history of human civilization, economics, spirituality, and the ecology movement. Key themes explored include anti-consumerism, interdependence, and how myth and narrative influence culture. According to Eisenstein, global culture is immersed in a destructive "story of separation", and one of the main goals of his work is to present an alternative "story of interbeing". Much of his work draws on ideas from Eastern philosophy and the spiritual teachings of various indigenous peoples. Eisenstein has been involved in the Occupy, New Economy, and permaculture movements. His work has also been popular with countercultural and New Age audiences. An advocate of the gift economy, he makes much of his work available for free on his website. https://charleseisenstein.org/

    Musical guest BRIAN BULGER:

    Brian Bulger is an alternative singer-songwriter from Springfield, Missouri. Folk, indie, and pop elements infused with honest storytelling is what sets Brian apart. He strives to tell his own story in a way that places the listener within the moment, crafting worlds and emotions in the melody. https://brianbulgermusic.com/

    Lyrics to UNRAVEL - https://ffm.to/BB-Unravel

    We're in the world
    And overwhelmed
    While we're divided
    We are compelled

    Even though small
    And all estranged
    We are ambassadors
    Agents of change

    I want
    I wanna unravel
    There’s something deeper in my being
    There must be something more than just breathing

    While we ourselves
    See us apart
    Our actions will be flawed
    Wrong head, wrong heart

    You show me cause
    I see effect
    Separateness
    Road to neglect

    I want
    I wanna unravel
    There’s something deeper in my being
    There must be something more than just breathing

    To die
    And to multiply
    My self-interest
    My capital
    My persistence to my ignorance

    We die
    And we multiply
    Our self-interest
    Our capital
    Our persistence to our ignorance

    There must be something more than this

    Sandor Katz on the Art of Fermentation (ft. musical guests The Silent Comedy)

    Sandor Katz on the Art of Fermentation (ft. musical guests The Silent Comedy)

    Acclaimed food author and fermentation guru Sandor Katz whose renegade revival of ancient culinary rituals has transformed his relationship with life and death, inspires songwriters Joshua and Jeremiah Zimmerman of The Silent Comedy to create a new track.

    Sandor Katz is a rock star of the food world. Since 2003 when his book Wild Fermentation was published, he has taught hundreds of workshops demystifying fermentation and empowering people to reclaim this important transformational process in their kitchens. His next book The Art of Fermentation (2012), received a James Beard award and was a finalist at the International Association of Culinary Professionals. https://www.wildfermentation.com/

    Musical guests: the Silent Comedy

    Joshua and Jeremiah Zimmerman of The Silent Comedy have spent most of their life on a tour bus and subsisted almost wholly on fermented food. They’ve performed with Dave Matthews, Mumford and Sons, and Vampire Weekend, and at Bonnaroo, Kaaboo and more. The band recorded and self-released a series of albums, selling hundreds of thousands and streaming millions. Still, they needed to capture the magic of their live show. Work with Grammy-nominated producer Chris “Frenchie” Smith led to a body of work that includes the EP Friends Divide and LP Enemies Multiply.  https://www.thesilentcomedy.com/

    Listen to CHANGES: https://ffm.to/TSC-Changes

    LYRICS:

    Gather up the pieces of the day
    Pushed into the dark and locked away
    I fear I’m repeating my mistakes
    But I can’t stay
    Can’t stay the same

    Might take days
    Might take ages
    You need patience
    To make peace with change

    Might take days
    Might take ages
    You need patience
    To make peace with change

    No can’t stay the same
    No can’t stay the same

    Gathered myself up to meet the day
    Pulled out from the dark what I put away
    I think I’m getting free of my mistakes
    If I don’t break
    I’ll break away

    Might take days
    Might take ages
    You need patience
    To make peace with change

    Might take days
    Might take ages
    You need patience
    To make peace with change

    No can’t stay the same
    No can’t stay the same x3
