Interview - Media Pioneer Michael Gosney on the Renaissance of Digital Multimedia

Before there was the Internet there were Mac SE’s, Amigas, Atari’s, and Mac II microcomputers.  They were revolutionizing the industries of book and magazine publication, photography, graphic arts, and music.  
To cover this revolution there was Verbum Magazine, founded by Michael Gosney, who later hosted the popular Digital Be-in parties, following the ever popular MacWorld Exhibition at Moscone Center in San Francisco.  
On today’s show Michael brings us back to these formative times, just before the rise of the internet and the whirlwind of evolution that happened then.  It was in these early times, the pre-Cambrian era of microcomputers, that today’s digital world was born, with artists collaborating, playing with techies and geeks to make it all happen Join us as we relive these magical times, their connection with the psychedelic 60’s, and setting the stage for today’s hyperlinked mobile world.

Interview - Jonathan Quintin, Sacred Geometrist

In these days of seemingly endless stress, there are a few things that seem to help us relax and take time to smell the flowers.  One of these things is sacred geometry, the mathematical forms embedded in Nature and the universe around us.  To help understand these patterns more deeply, we have brought onto the show one of the world’s foremost experts on the topic, Jonathan Quintin, currently visiting Santa Cruz from his home country of New Zealand.
He has been working with sacred geometrical forms for most of his life and has taken the art form to a very amazing level of mastery.  Enjoy!

Future News - Your relationship to the Entire Universe, Amazing Solar Harvester, Exploring the Antikythera Shipwreck, Immersing in Interstellar, Alex Jones/John McAfee Reveal Secrets of the Fake Cell Towers, Poly vs Mono in Desert vs Rainforest People, New Study on Martian Life

Listen Now to Future News 10.07.14

We have more info you on the mysterious cell towers that don’t offically belong to any of the cell phone company carriers, thanks to eccentric high tech millionaire John McAfee, in conversation with Infowars host, Alex Jones. It’s quite revealing and a bit scarey.  But fear not, as we bring you other news that  will make it all ok, well mostly…

And we are taking guesses, who will discover alien life first, Mono or polytheists?  If you are curious about this rather strange trajectory of inquiry, you’ll love our discussion of desert vs rainforest religion based on an anthropological investigation of such matters, followed by a story on what has been found inside a Martian meteorite found in the antarctic.
