A podcast for the bold and curious to help you navigate our world's accelerating weirdness — about science and the philosophy of it, prehistory and post-humanity and deep time, non-human agency and non-duality, science fiction and the stories we regard as real, complex systems and sustainability (or lack thereof), psychedelics as a form of training for a weirding present and proliferating futures, art and creativity as service and as inquiry. Join paleontologist-futurist Michael Garfield every other week for deep but irreverent discussions on the biggest questions we can think to ask — and even deeper mysteries beyond what’s thinkable.
Michael Garfield is a philosopher and artist dedicated to helping navigate our era of crisis and innovation, midwifing new myths to suit an emerging planetary renaissance. As a public speaker, essayist, avant-guitarist and songwriter, and live painter, Michael has performed and spoken at events on four continents and contributed to countless publications. His fiercely pluralistic, multidisciplinary work addresses major evolutionary transitions (like the one we're living through right now). By day, he works in complex systems science communication for the Santa Fe Institute.
