This podcast is a series of conversations between Dominic Venter, Helena Roth and Caspian Almerud. We have these conversations because we think they will provide value in the form of information, knowledge, wisdom and hopefully some new thoughts.
46. Doing the roona-thing
This episode was recorded on 210601.
Helena got bit by the covid-bug, and that roona-thing plays a large part in this conversation that also centers around Morphogenetic field theory by Rupert Sheldrake (recommending you read The Science Delusion), The Press Freedom day, with a brief mention of a South Africa article.
53. Where the road ends for the buddhas

52. Julius Caesar and Shakespeare make an appearance
This episode was recorded on 210315.
1 yr anniversary - first Buddhas on Corona recorded 14MAR2020.
On Corona, on vaccines, direct democracy, risk, science (both soft and hard), cognitive dissonance, entitlement and duty.
Helena also reveals that she listens to these episodes once they're published and she LAUGHS along with all three Buddhas. Laughter - it's a great thing, is it not?
Both Julius Caesar and Shakespeare make an appearance, fitting on the anniversary episode! Could the fall of Rome be a hint of what might be coming in the aftermath of the Covid-19-pandemic? It's a bit like the boy who cried Wolf in the emperor's new clothes having a baby...
Then Caspian saves the day by abolishing the nation state.
Yeah. It's one of those episodes. (Like... eh, all of 'em. Yeah. ExActly!)

49. There are two kinds of people
An episode where D goes shopping for an argument... without much success, but it makes for some interesting deep messy conversations alongside the general banter. There's contrarianism, astrology and Apple products, Hegelian dialogue and two forms of Covid (the actual virus and the political virus), IQ tests and the DISC-test, and a whole lot more.
We also mention (at least...) these things:
