  • 208. Episode 207 - Understanding the UFO Paradox w/ Keith Thompson

    In this episode, I speak with the Author of the recent book; 'The UFO Paradox: The Celestial and Symbolic World of Unidentified Aerial Phenomena'... Keith Thompson. This incredible book chronicles his own investigations into the UFO mystery, and how he developed a very unique perspective on the experience. As his story unfolds, he details how he introduced the late Harvard psychiatrist John Mack to accounts of alien abduction and how he was invited by philanthropist Laurence S. Rockefeller to lobby the American President at the time to disclose government-held UFO information. Sharing stories from his friendship with astronaut Edgar D. Mitchell, among others, the book recounts discussions on how best to interpret UFOs and non-ordinary phenomena of various kinds. Our discussion dives and weaves into all aspects of the UFO experience, the nature of abductions, who the ET's may be, and the role the compound DMT may play in communicating with these beings. Thompson reveals how the UFO phenomenon ultimately represents a call from the cosmos for humanity to open to greater dimensions of reality and recognize that our understanding of the universe is still far from complete.

  • 206. Episode 206 - The History of 60's Psychedelia & The Final Interview w/ Jerry Garcia

    In this episode I take a trip through the time stream to connect with the man himself...Jerry Garcia. This episode features two rare interviews that encapsulate the birth of not only the Grateful Dead, but also the 60's counter culture movement, and it's gargantuan impact on the western world. Jerry shares some incredible stories about his beginnings, the acid tests, his genesis as a musician, and so much more. He continues as he elaborates on various topics like psychedelia and spirituality. Closing the episode is the final recorded interview with Jerry, and some of the closing thoughts as he graduated into the next world.. A historical episode.. Tune In, Turn On, Drop In!Jerry Garcia Bio:Jerome John Garcia (August 1, 1942 – August 9, 1995) was an American musician who was the principal songwriter, lead guitarist, and a vocalist with the rock band Grateful Dead, which he co-founded and which came to prominence during the counterculture of the 1960s.Although he disavowed the role, Garcia was viewed by many as the leader of the band. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994 as a member of the Grateful Dead. As one of its founders, Garcia performed with the Grateful Dead for the band's entire 30-year career (1965–1995). Garcia also founded and participated in a variety of side projects, including the Saunders–Garcia Band (with longtime friend Merl Saunders), the Jerry Garcia Band, Old & In the Way, the Garcia/Grisman and Garcia/Kahn acoustic duos, Legion of Mary, and New Riders of the Purple Sage (which he co-founded with John Dawson and David Nelson). He also released several solo albums, and contributed to a number of albums by other artists over the years as a session musician. He was well known for his distinctive guitar playing, and was ranked 13th in Rolling Stone's "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time" cover story in 2003. In the 2015 version of the list he was ranked at #46.. In 2023, Garcia was ranked 34th by Rolling Stone. Garcia was renowned for his musical and technical ability, particularly his ability to play a variety of instruments and sustain long improvisations. Garcia believed that improvisation took stress away from his playing and allowed him to make spur of the moment decisions that he would not have made intentionally. In a 1993 interview with Rolling Stone, Garcia noted that "my own preferences are for improvisation, for making it up as I go along. The idea of picking, of eliminating possibilities by deciding, that's difficult for me". Originating from the days of the "Acid Tests", these improvisations were a form of exploration rather than playing a song already written.. Later in life, Garcia struggled with diabetes. In 1986, he went into a diabetic coma that nearly cost him his life. Although his overall health improved somewhat after the incident, he continued to struggle with obesity, smoking, and long-standing heroin and cocaine addictions. He was staying in a California drug rehabilitation facility when he died of a heart attack in August 1995, at age 53..
