Book Mark this! Gnostic Media

While listening to a Meria Heller show, her guest made mention of this site.
Yeah, I have been keeping it to myself, until now.
This section of their website is very good- Gnostic Media Podcasts


Here the word 'gnostic' pertains to knowledge, and not necessarily dogmatic "Gnostic" teachings. The word gnostic has it's origins in the word 'knowledge' or to know [Greek gnosis, knowledge, from gignoskein, to know].

A show that takes you far beyond the commonly understood concepts of religious practice, history, philosophy, the ancient mysteries, and politics, into the heart of cognizance itself.

My focus is to bring together the leading independent and academic scholars from their respective fields of study to discuss shamanism, entheogens / psychedelics, religion, fertility cults, archaeoastronomy, direct religious experience, politics, and much more.
Some of the interviews- Well, Eustace Mullins -Part 1- knocked my socks off yesterday.
I will catch the second part today. Talk about a startling revelation.

Also interesting- the interview with Dr. Barbara Erhenreich on her book -Bright-Sided, How the Relentless Promotion of Positive Thinking Has Undermined America.
Discussing how all this mindless positive thinking is leading to, well, being mindless.... How desperately we need critical thinking. I second, third and fourth that thought!

Also an interview there with Ellen Brown on her book -Web of debt- That one is on my Christmas List, the book that is.

And more, much more.
