    M.K. Komins | Empathy Emergency

    A multi-medium'd magician of an artist, M.K. is a bright, curious and friendly soul with a huge heart & and razor sharp mind.
    We get into so much good shit on this episode.  One of the many joys of doing this podcast is meeting new people and making new friends but there is just something so incredible about documenting the very first time you talk to someone and having it be such a barn burner of a conversation.

    Ayahuasca Dialogues | The Ungoogleable Michaelangelo | God Jokes

    The Ungoogleable and I talk Ayahuasca!
    I could excitedly listen to Michaelagelo talk about pretty much anything for endless hours.  If you took the energy of Terrence Mckenna, Michael WInslow, Salvador Dali and Robin Williams and put it through a blender it would probably taste a lot like him but yet it would still be missing the deeply unique thing that he is beneath his memetic masks.

    Caledonia Curry ( Swoon ) | Unearthing The Medea : The Intersection of Art & Psychedelic Assisted Therapy

    Caledonia Curry ( Swoon ) | Unearthing The Medea : The Intersection of Art & Psychedelic Assisted Therapy

    Swoon has been one of my heros for almost 20 years now...
    Known initially for her prolific wheat paste prints that were plastered all over the city and then quickly transitioning into a well known gallery artist who specialized in public installation works.
    Most recently she has begun to tell her own story as a survivor of trauma & her journey of healing it through psychedelic therapy and art.

Love this Podcast

I have always enjoyed Colin’s outlook of the world and art via twitter/instagram but honestly this takes it to a whole new level. Also definitely appreciate hearing from other artists I value! 🤘🏻

Get ready for blast off

Colin is an incredibly thoughtful human being. He lends his voice to a platform of love and curiosity- which are some of the greatest gifts us humans get to enjoy and explore! Much like his music this podcast is mind bending and if you listen with an open heart you can at the very least gain another cool perspective in life. This podcast features ideas that help with self reflection, beauty of art, love and life and community and understanding people who may entirely different than you, the listener, are accustomed to interacting with. Good vibes only.

A great group once sang, “Free your mind and the rest will follow”. That group was En Vogue. Much like them, Colin, the host of this podcast, has maybe been practicing that mantra for years. This is a small reflection of that work. His guests are all luminaries in their respective fields, a ready to discuss life and even somehow help make the universe more harmonious. It’s an easy listen, if you’re willing TO listen.
