Speaking with guests from the worlds of academia, popular culture, and the arts, Russell seeks to uncover the ulterior truth behind our constructed reality. And have a laugh.

    #243 Is There A God? (with Ricky Gervais and Bishop Stephen Cottrell)

    #242 Anarchy and Ideas for Change (with Noam Chomsky)

    #242 Anarchy and Ideas for Change (with Noam Chomsky)

    This week I spoke with Noam Chomsky, one of the most influential intellectuals in the world. He is a Professor Laureate of Linguistics at the University of Arizona, a professor at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and the author of more than 150 books!
    During our conversation I asked him whether he thought a decentralization of power and anarchism are important subjects for the future. As you’d expect, there were some striking answers from the 93-year-old philosopher.

    #241 Why the Economy Is Screwed (with Matt Stoller)

    This week I spoke with Matt Stoller, Director of Research at the American Economic Liberties Project. He’s a contributor on the YouTube show "Breaking Points" and author of Goliath: The Hundred Year War Between Monopoly Power and Democracy.
    In our conversation I asked Matt about whether it’s time for a revolution--to do something radical? He reveals something very interesting in his response!

    #240 Psychedelics: Is This Why They’re Investing? (With Nicolas Glynos)

    #240 Psychedelics: Is This Why They’re Investing? (With Nicolas Glynos)

    This week I spoke with Nicolas Glynos, who is Vice President of the Student Association for Psychedelic Studies and Co-founder of Psychedelic Neuroscience and Therapy for the University of Michigan. His latest work is focused on the compound DMT (N, N- Dimethyltryptamine), which exists within our bodies as well as throughout nature. (It's sometimes called "the spirit molecule.") Together we talk about the neurological picture of the brain when DMT has been administered--for instance, the impact DMT has on default brain network functions such as "mental time-travel/mind wandering" and "planning"--as well as all the other ways to measure the brain under psychedelics. Plus, we find out about the plant-based psychedelic ayahuasca.

We need more people manifesting goodness

From a recommendation I came to contact with Russell’s work, and it is fantastic, we need more people bringing up humanity, sharing knowledge, incentivizing others on moving culture upwards.
Well done
