This week we welcome worldwide bestselling author and researcher, Lynne McTaggart, to talk to us about her latest book, The Power of Eight.

We cover:

  • The how's and why's of group intention.

A truly excellent and enlightening discussion!

Jan 11, 2018

Due to a string of low probability events -both positive and negative- we're activating an emergency solo show this week.

The topic is cycles, cycle models, where and how they align in 2018. As it is a solo show, there are no show notes, but you may wish to read Austin's 2018 report for context.

Jan 2, 2018

Starting 2018 off with a bang. The first guest of the year is none other than Dr Rupert Sheldrake. Dr Sheldrake joins us to talk about his latest book, Science and Spiritual Practices, which is already available to you lucky people in the UK, and will be out later in the year if you live outside the UK.

A fantastic chat, unsurprisingly.

For the final show of 2017, we welcome back the one and Conner Habib for a thrilling chat on seeing through the lunacy and restrictions of official reality, opening up a new politics, and how to manifest your best possible year.

Great stuff.

Dec 13, 2017

This week we welcome back a very special regular guest for a very special recurring feature.

The one and only Austin Coppock gives us an end-of-2017 report as well as a peek through what I assume is an ornate, steampunk telescope of what is coming up in 2018.

Good times, as ever.

Show Notes

Dec 6, 2017

This week we speak with the one and only Tobias Churton about his latest Crowley book, Aleister Crowley in America.

We discuss his New York experience, mountain climbing in Mexico, to what extent he was working for British Intelligence, his curious UFO incident in New Hampshire and a whole lot more.

A splendid discussion with one of my favourite authors. Enjoy.

Nov 30, 2017

Another solo show this week. (Sort of.)

There's some further elaboration required on some of the notions skimmed in the Thanksgiving episode, plus some real talk on what is to be done.

We return to normal programming for the rest of the year, but -like the Double Talking episodes- this is in danger of becoming a sporadic new format!

And as it is just me, there are no show notes. Although you'll find a companion video at runesoup.com.

Nov 22, 2017

A solo show this week.

Just me, talking about history and how we think with the past when it no longer matches up to our expectations of the present.

Big shout out to all our American cousins doing exactly this under the challenging conditions of a competitive eating environment.

Nov 15, 2017

Paul Weston on the mic this week. Paul is an author and lecturer based in Glastonbury, and one that I’ve had the pleasure of speaking with in the flesh multiple times.

Today he joins us to talk about synchromystic creative journeys, psychogeography, mermaid goddesses, ancient Egyptian spirits and the works of Kenneth Grant.

Story time!

This week the amazing José Leitão returns to the show to update us on his Ninth-Gate-style Cyprian quest across Portugal and to talk to us about his latest book, Bibliotheca Valencia, out from Hadean Press.

Great stuff.

Another double-talking episode this week. Sarah and Juniper talk us through plant allies, entheogens, journeying and just generally interacting with the non-human world in a neighbourly fashion.

There's also some great ritual advice for solo and group praxis. Fantastic stuff.

Show Notes

Very good times.

This week we are speaking to my good friend and the internet’s master of conspiramonies, Greg Carlwood. As you are no doubt aware, Greg is the prolific and thoughtful host of The Higherside Chats. In a thematic follow up to last week’s show on Gnosticism, it seems useful to explore how we map and respond to the known and unknown in our world.

And so that’s what we are going to do. Enjoy.

Show Notes

Sep 6, 2017

This week we are taking the new format out for another spin by welcoming back two popular previous guests, Miguel Conner and Chris Knowles, to double talk the most contemporary of ancient philosophies -Gnosticism- and whether or not we live in the most gnostic of times.

So. Good.

This week we are speaking with Dr Francis Young. Dr Young is an historian, author and translator, hailing from and with a particular interest in East Anglia. He joins us today to speak principally about the history of exorcism and his book, A History of Exorcism in Catholic Christianity.

Good stuff.

This week we are debuting a sporadic new show format.

For the 'Double Talking' episodes we bring back two prior guests for a three headed discussion about various shared topics.

First cabs off the rank are Dr Al Cummins and Julio Ody and the topic is all things practically grimoiric.

Right here. This is my jam.
