Love this podcast

I have loved many of the interviews but the recent one with Jay Feldman was outstanding! Love how you can step outside of the little box many health conscious people put themselves into and at least consider alternative ideas/research. Jay seemed like a very intelligent guy with a lot of knowledge. Thank you!

Eating crow

It never ceases to amaze me how often my innate directional sense of finding relevant and fundamentally important information is so alarmingly bass ackwards. It seems to be functional only in the manner of, do the opposite... I pegged this interview with Richard Perkins as a last resort “listen to”, (enter plate of crow…), and finished the program humbled and excited. This presentation is vital edification as a necessary precursor for all responsible human beings wishing to save themselves, their tribes, and ultimately, all of life’s vast interconnected families of species. And, by logical extension, the planet.

Give It A Try

Brian appears to be trying his best to share the good news with people everywhere, give his podcast a listen with an open heart. God Bless y’all. And I hope the movie will be out sooner than later. His latest episode is transitioning his audience to “Transhumanism,” advocating wearing monitorable tech which constantly scans the blood... dont think the movie is out before 2025 sadly.
