    #336 - Richard Lang - What It Feels Like To Have No Head

    Richard Lang is the Co-ordinator of the Shollond Trust, a UK charity focussed on sharing the Headless Way.
    If you see a person from 6 feet away, they're a person. From 100,000 miles away they're a planet. From a few microns away they're cells. So what are they at their very centre? Who are we?
    This is the central question of The Headless Way and today Richard takes us through Douglas Harding's work to answer it along with some meditations and experiments you can do to illuminate these insights for yourself.

    #331 - Michael Knowles - The Problem With Political Correctness

    #331 - Michael Knowles - The Problem With Political Correctness

    Michael Knowles is a political commentator, podcaster, and an author.
    Ostensibly, political correctness is the right thing to do if you're a  responsible human that is respectful of other people's emotions.
    Encouraging people to be mindful and precise of the words they use makes sense. But demanding for tolerance becomes undermined when the people doing the demanding are overbearing and intolerant. It’s like punching people in the name of peace. Something is obviously amiss...
    Expect to learn why people who respect free speech may need to restrict free speech, how political correctness lays a trap for everyone, whether Michael thinks we're closer to a Brave New World or 1984, his thoughts on Steven Crowder's situation and much more...

Jordon Peterson and Mohamedou Ould Slahi interview was great

Man. The interview with Mohamedou Ould Slahi was one of the best podcasts I’ve heard in ten years. Hands down. And the fact that you let him speak. Let him build the story. Incredible. Please have him back in a few years so we can hear how his life is progressing and the good deeds he is working on.

Two of my favorite creators on one podcast. Good conversation. I wish I was there with a couple of beers in hand!

Excellent Host

Love the podcast which I discovered from similar podcasts in 2020. Never heard of Chris before but he has a charisma about him and his mindset and perspective the best part of the podcast. He sounds like a professional of 20 plus years and hearing his back story it's incredible. Highly recommend for anyone seeking to grow and gain wisdom.

Excellent listening

Certain podcasts seem to narrow in on single topics, however, this podcast casts a net far and wide to interview an eclectic arrangement of guests. The new content is stimulating and the host always approaches the interview with genuine curiosity and an open mind. Listening to this podcast will give you insightful information and certainly transform you to become a more interesting conversationalist.
