Evolver the Podcast Episode 3: Magic and the Occult

This is my favorite episode we’ve done so far. We have three amazing interviews.

The first is an interview with Jonathan Talat Phillips interviewing Gary Lachman the rockstar (guitarist for Blondie) turned occult author. The focus of this interview is to discuss Gary’s new book Jung the Mystic.

The next interview is a conversation between me and Baza Novic, one of the regional coordinators from Evolver LA. We talked about his involvement with Evolver and how it has been driven by his esoteric practice. The Interview is opened with a meditation from Baza.

Last we have an interview with Raymond Wiley, that was conducted by Jennifer Palmer. This was a real treat for me.

A couple years ago when I first got into the counter culture and the occult my sort of crash course was Raymond’s podcast Out There Radio, which I was introduced to from the first Disinformation podcast that he did, and it’s been a crazy ride every since. It was awesome to be able to do a podcast with Raymond. This interview is a fantastic conversation between Jennifer and Raymond about the “occult” in a very broad way. Raymond also discusses the importance he feels there is in us recognizing the rich history of the Western Esoteric practice. If you would like to listen to more of Raymond like I mentioned he has a 50 episode series called Out There Radio and he is also doing the Disinformation podcasts. Check them out!

On this episode of Evolver the Podcast we have three interviews. The first is with Jennifer Palmer, the news editor for Reality Sandwich and the community director for Evolver.net. We talked about what exactly Evolver is, a number of things we have accomplished, and directions that we hope to be headed.

Next we Interviewed Tony Damico from Evolver Long Beach. We talked about some of the amazing things that Tony has going on with his community in Long Beach. One of the things we talked about is the Time Bank that they just started down there. We also have a song from Tony’s conscious hip hop group called Sun Dream. What they are doing down in Evolver Long Beach is very inspiring stuff.

Last we have an interview with Richard Smoley. Richard has recently re-released his book called The Essential Nostradamus. Richard is one of the most distinguished authorities on the mystical and esoteric teachings of Western civilization. The interview is conducted by Jonathan Phillips who is one of the co-founders of Evolver. Jonathan also has a strong background in Gnosticism and conscious media. Jonathan will be helping with the podcasts from now on conducting interviews.

I loved doing this episode and we have changed the format a lot from the first. I think that you all will enjoy listening. Remember it’s our world to change.
