This week we are speaking with Corinne Boyer. Based in the particularly green Pacific Northwest, Corinne is an writer, teacher and all around expert in folk herbalism and traditional plant lore. She joins us today to talk about her latest book, Plants of the Devil.
We also chat poisons, edibles, science, naturopathy and the long term impact of fairy tales on kids. Nice one!
Another solo show this week, and not for reasons of plague cancellations.
It is past time to think with and through some challenging thoughts around Classical Liberalism, pleasure, and the pros and cons of tidying your room.
Mentioning no names, bucko.
No show notes this week, apart from a link to a recent blog post.
This week, we welcome back Marcus Matawhero Lloyd.
You may remember Marcus from an episode last year where he talked us through his experiences at Standing Rock, as well as parts of his journey rebuilding an ancestral Pa site on the east coast of New Zealand’s north island.
Since we last spoke, Marcus has kept adventuring, and he joins us today to discuss his recent hikoi for water.
We also talk about ancestral spirits, rivers-as-persons, forest encounters with angry entities and old/new roads to a better ecology. Splendid, splendid stuff.
You'll find a collection of images from Marcus's hikoi on the post page at Rune Soup.
This week we welcome back the one and only Dr Jeffrey Kripal to talk about his latest book, Secret Body. Dr Kripal's work is regularly namechecked on the show, on the blog and in my own books. We can only expect that to continue given the topics covered in Secret Body.
Along the way, we also discuss the new comparativism, 'the human as two', taboos and the transmoral, and homoeroticism in Christianity.
Splendid, splendid stuff.
