Yesterday I had the great pleasure of being interviewed by scholar and "truth activist" Kevin Barrett for his show Truth Jihad on American Freedom Radio. Kevin and I spoke an hour about the intersection of spirituality, science, and society, discussing quantum effects in the brain, deep definitions of faith, and evolving a more spiritual politics.
Though we were plagued by a couple moments of technical difficulty—a commercial break hijacked by an unending Cat Stevens song, and a phone dropout near the end of our hour (which resolved just in time for some final words)—our conversation was, in every other way, easy and enlightening.
Kevin archives his radio shows online, so for those of you interested in the interview, please click here to download an mp3:
I come on the second half of the show, so feel free to forward to the hour mark in your iTunes, etc.
And for those of you interested in listening to more of Kevin’s shows, his complete archive is available here:
I was connected to Kevin by Dorion Sagan, a great friend of Poetic Interconnections. His books Into the Cool: Energy Flow, Thermodynamics and Life and Death & Sex have inspired blog posts here. Can’t thank Dorion enough for his ongoing support.
I’d love to hear any of your thoughts about topics Kevin and I discussed! As always, please feel free to leave comments at the blog.
