    Nuance in the Israel-Palestine Conflict with Tuli Skaist

    Nuance in the Israel-Palestine Conflict with Tuli Skaist

    In episode #156 of Cylinder Radio, I speak with organisational educator and friend of mine, Tuli Skaist about how we can approach the Isreal-Palestine conflict with more nuance, empathy and understanding. 
    Tuli shares his personal story and perspective on the conflict, coming from an ultra-orthodox Jewish background and having spent many years of his life growing up and working in Isreal. We talk about the long and confusing history of the land as well as the conflicts and wars that have been fought for the last 100 years until the modern day. Despite the difficulty, we try to map out a way forward that is founded on grace, understanding and a desire for long-lasting peace.

    My Approach To Toxic Comment Sections

    My Approach To Toxic Comment Sections

    In this solo episode of Cylinder Radio, I delve into a topic that I've been thinking about a lot lately: navigating comment sections on social media. I explore the different ways that I choose to actively engage with comments. I address the lack of humility and arrogance that people convey in comments as well as the insults and personal attacks that seem to be the norm for almost any online landscape today. Lastly, I dive into my strategies for dealing with these types of comments on my own content. Let me know your thoughts!!

    Brain Injuries, Breathwork & Psychedelics with David Casler

    Brain Injuries, Breathwork & Psychedelics with David Casler

    In episode #154 of Cylinder Radio, I talk to my friend David Casler. David is a marine, a breath work & trauma coach and psychonaut (for his interests and use of psychedelics and plant medicines). 
    During the conversation, we spoke about his background in the military and being blown up led to a traumatic brain injury that altered the course of his life forever. We talked about his journey with psychedelics and breathwork and how these practices benefited him personally. We also discussed the future of psychedelics and how they can/can't help people on a larger scale.

    Conspiracy Theories and the CIA with Former CIA Officer Art Keller

    Conspiracy Theories and the CIA with Former CIA Officer Art Keller

    In this episode, I speak with former CIA case officer Art Keller about conspiracy theories. Today, Art is a freelance journalist, commentator and author, being published in the New York Times, the Washington Post, CNN, CBS, and many more. There are few things that get as much attention on my social media platforms as conspiracy theories so I’m excited to have had the chance to pick Art’s brain on the topic.
    During the episode, we speak about questions such as: What kind of people does the CIA look for? And how did Art end up in the CIA? He shares his personal experience with the Iraq invasion as well as his perspective on a variety of different “conspiracy theories” such as the deep state, Jeffrey Epstein, 9/11 and the JFK assassination. Lastly, we discuss what people can do to test conspiracy theories for themselves.

    The Deep State, Human Nature & Trump (Solo Podcast)

    The Deep State, Human Nature & Trump (Solo Podcast)

    For this episode, I thought I would sit down and do a solo episode since that is what a lot of people seem to have been asking for. I want to take on current topics that are relevant or controversial and do a deep dive to highlight different perspectives and viewpoints on said topics. 
    For today, I thought I’d start with the concept of the deep state because that always gets people talking. In the episode, I covered questions like what or who is the deep state and whether the deep state is just normal human nature. I do a deep dive into Trump and how he has affected our nation’s perception of the deep state. I talk about how the anti-establishment has changed drastically over the last few decades and how we can move forward towards a less corrupt future.
    Let me know what your thoughts are on these solo podcasts and if you have any topics that you’d like me to dive into in upcoming episodes!

    Bridging Political Divides Among Young People with Manu Meel from BridgeUSA

    Bridging Political Divides Among Young People with Manu Meel from BridgeUSA

    On this episode of Cylinder Radio, I speak with Manu Meel, the CEO of  BridgeUSA, a youth-led non-profit organization that creates spaces on college and high school campuses for open-minded and non-judgemental conversations on political issues. 
    I think it’s a really important challenge to take on and BridgeUSA is doing an awesome job at tackling it so I wanted to have him on the podcast to learn more and share his work with my platform.
    During our conversation, we talk about how BridgeUSA started, why Manu felt called to insert himself into the culture wars and why he thinks he was able to “resist” the temptation of going after material success and external rewards over meaning. 
    We also discuss how to get young people to break out of their thought bubbles and if echo chambers are part of human nature or not. Lastly, we talk about what makes people actually take action to change something within our society and what you can do to start your own BridgeUSA chapter if you are at a high school or college in the US.

A True Teacher

So grateful to Will for his breadth of guests with a wide spectrum of viewpoints. The way Will interviews introduces new concepts, invites curiosity, and truly strengthens the fabric of our connection to one another. This podcast is where I go to learn, to get out of my echo chambers, and to find new thought leaders!

Great show

Wonderful discussions with wide range of topics, guests, and ideas. This show is an example of how to have nuanced conversation about complex social issues. I wish the mainstream media would follow the lead of many podcasts and long form interviews.
