Radio Interview with Kevin Barrett


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.

    Hello, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and
    i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam feedback?
    If so how do you protect against it, any plugin or anything you can suggest?
    I get so much lately it’s driving me mad so any support is very much appreciated.

    The First Amendment cited by Savage is not absolute. He was constantly subjected to a barrage of verbal abuse and insults, and says that
    several times crowd members seemed to be trying to provoke him
    into throwing a punch. Asked what message he wanted to send with his presence, he says:
    “We’re here, we’re real, and we can’t be intimidated” into backing down from the public option.

      How Jack Morris isn’t in the Hall of Fame amazes me. A guy like Schilling, whose regular-season record, at best, makes him a borderline Hall of Famer is considered a lock by a lot of people because of his postseason record. Based on the 1984 and 1991 postseasons alone, Morris should get in.

      FB,Gaol is acceptable, if they get all pernickety. I am not certain that a custodial sentence is applicable though. They will chase the money first. And if they do that, I have a shitload of stuff to put them through before they get a single penny.Thanks for the good wishes!CR.
