173 - Daniel Shankin on Psychedelic Integration - The Path of the Heart

Ep. 173

This week I commune with psychedelic integration counselor Daniel ‘Sitaram Das’ Shankin, founder of Tam Integration and The Psilocybin Summit, in a soulful conversation on grace versus good works, taking multiple perspectives, being the kindest version of yourself (rather than the smartest), belief systems as spirit possessions, his journey from yoga teacher to psychedelic integration counselor, personality types as insurance strategies, the good, bad, and ugly of memes, and how to live with the worst parts of psychedelic capitalism.


Learn more about Daniel at tamintegration.com, sitaramdas.com, Instagram, and Twitter.

174 - Evan "Skytree" Snyder on Sound Design for A Robotic Built Wilderness

Ep. 174

In this first part of our discussion, we explore the evolutionary and psychological considerations for designing human-compatible robot sounds, talk brilliant birds and their mimicry of people and machines, and riff on the manipulative utility of cuteness for both good and evil.In part two, available to Patreon supporters later this week, we talk about Evan’s work to reconstruct the soundscapes of The Age of Dinosaurs, his experiments with using radioactive mineral samples to control modular synthesizers, and his reflections on the use of sound for deep-time communication with future humans and/or extraterrestrials…✨Go Deeper•If you value this show and would like to see it thrive,support Future Fossils on Patreonand pleaseleave a good review on Apple Podcasts!
