2020, 09/07 – Truth: How Many Sides to Every Story Shape Our Reality with author Hector Macdonald

Replay – This show originally aired August 2nd 2018. We like to think that there is a clear distinction between true and false. The reality is far murkier. Truth can be spun in the names used, the context applied, the omissions committed, the framing deployed and many other ways. “Truth” can look vey different to different people. Macdonald explains how these so-called “competing truths” are used both constructively and misleadingly by businesses, media, politicians, advertisers, and even regular people having ...

2020, 08/24 – Decoding Schopenhauer’s Metaphysics with Bernardo Kastrup

First proposed more than 200 years ago, Schopenhauer’s extraordinarily prescient metaphysics – if understood along the lines thoroughly elucidated and substantiated in this volume – offers powerful answers not only to the paradoxes of quantum mechanics, but also to modern philosophical dilemmas such as the hard problem of consciousness – which plagues mainstream physicalism, and the subject combination problem – which plagues constitutive panpsychism. This invaluable treasure of the Western philosophical canon has eluded us so far because Schopenhauer’s argument ...

2020, 08/17 – Shine On with David Ditchfield

Across thousands of years, people have described one of the most astonishing of all human phenomena: the near-death experience (NDE), the subjective experience of an Afterlife, a place where we apparently survive death. The more powerful the NDE, the more profound the after effects. The ambitious reset their priorities. Atheists change their values. Doctors rethink their beliefs. But what if the after effects of an NDE were undeniable? What if someone suddenly developed the ability to produce high quality paintings ...

2020, 08/10 – Self-Compassion with Kristin Neff, Ph.D.

The relentless search for high self-esteem has become a virtual religion; and a tyrannical one at that. Our competitive culture tells us we need to be special and above average to feel good about ourselves, but we can’t all be above average at the same time. There is always someone richer, more attractive, or successful than we are. And even when we do manage to feel self-esteem for one golden moment, we can’t hold on to it. Our sense of ...

2020, 07/20 – The Velvet Rope Economy with Nelson Schwartz

From New York Times business reporter Nelson D. Schwartz comes a gripping investigation of how a virtual velvet rope divides Americans in every arena of life, creating a friction-free existence for those with money on one side and a Darwinian struggle for the middle class on the other side. In nearly every realm of daily life–from health care to education, highways to home security–there is an invisible velvet rope that divides how Americans live. On one side of the rope, ...
