    What Does This Do For My Soul? with Daniel Thorson

    Daniel Thorson, host of Emerge podcast, and I recorded our first episode together about a year ago and at that time he was preparing to move to the Monastic Academy, which is a training center dedicated to creating wise, powerful, and loving leaders who are an unstoppable force for social and environmental peace on Earth.

    Pt 3 - Owning Your Tech's Energy Footprint - Katie Singer

    Over the previous 2 episodes we talked about Electromagnetic radiation effects on biology, and the true costs of the embodied energy of the internet. This is the 3rd installment of conversations with author Katie Singer. Today we’re going to go into dealing with this awareness on a personal level, what we can do ourselves, and how we can adapt our behavior in light of this information.

    Pt 2 - Embodied Energy of the Internet - Katie Singer

    “If people remain unaware, in the illusion of the simplicity of sending an email, then there isn’t really a way to move forward until Nature imposes limits on us”

    Where do we get these wonderful toys? What are the hidden costs of the Internet? How do we get silicon wafers for electronics manufacturing?

    And while we’re at it, how are we able to download podcasts for free? Or is it free? What is the true cost?

    Pt 1 - Electronic Silent Spring - Katie Singer

    “EMF stands for electromagnetic fields. All living creatures need the Earth’s EMFs in order to navigate, digest food, reproduce and more. Human-made EMFs emitted by electronic technologies can interfere with and harm living creatures’ basic functioning.”
    Katie Singer’s book, An Electronic Silent Spring “focuses on how mobile phones and Wi-Fi affect children and how wireless technologies can interfere with medical implants like insulin pumps, cardiac pacemakers and deep brain stimulators.”

Katie singer on Abe’s genuinely useful podcast

I listened to all three interviews/conversations about the carbon footprint of the WWW and its actual and potential dangers to the human species on so many levels. As Katie says, we as humans are designed to see only what is right in front of our faces. This podcast points to what lies beyond our comprehension but it is in that realm that the answers lie so we must keep searching in the beyond. Thank you for enhancing my awareness of this huge and important issue and for leading me towards acceptance and action. I wish I could turn my internet off at night but I share it with a housemate who pays for it and keeps it on 24/7.

Awesome podcast!

I appreciate the mix of guests and Abe’s way of maintaining the flow in each conversation, but also allowing for silence. Can’t wait to hear more!! Love the original artwork and music!

Yes, Useful

I’ve listened to the first four episodes, and “Genuinely” found “Useful” nuggets in each one. Especially useful to me are discussion on stillness (02 Cycling Through Remembering) and truths (04 Helicopters). Conversation can help participants — and listeners — understand themselves better! (Full disclosure, I’m Abe’s dad.)
