"There was a case where Dr. He in China did some genome edits on two children—on two babies. He made two CRISPR babies. That guy went to jail, all right? Suddenly, fast forward to today: we're willing to take that risk on billions of people."Kevin McKernan worked at the Human Genome Project at MIT as manager of research and development. Today, he is the chief scientific officer and founder of Medicinal Genomics, and is researching DNA contamination in the COVID-19 genetic vaccines."There are limits on how much DNA can be in a vaccine precisely because of the concern over DNA integration," says Mr. McKernan. "What we do know is in both shots, there is residual DNA, and this DNA is either right above the regulatory limit or tenfold higher."How do the different mRNA vaccine components impact the body? What's really going on with the SB 40 monkey virus promoter that's in them? Why should we be concerned about lipid nanoparticles and DNA open reading frames? And how is synthetic mRNA fundamentally different from naturally-occurring mRNA?"Australia has different guidelines on what constitutes gene therapy, and it looks like these vaccines may, in fact, fall under that category, given the fact that there's DNA in them and they're using LNPs. And we now know that some of the DNA in there has been used and documented as a gene therapy tool," says Mr. McKernan.
This week I speak with fine artist and illustrator Kelly McKernan! We talk about a LOT of different topics including their schooling, photography, teaching, creating a comic book for Evanescence, their perspective on NFTs and especially: AI! Kelly McKernan is one of the three plaintiffs in a class-action lawsuit against Stability AI, Midjourney, and DeviantArt for copyright infringement. We also both complain a bit about how difficult it is to make a living as independent artists and a lot more! Really great and fun conversation! Also, a quick art life update.

Colton started his career in real estate during the housing market crash of '08 in Las Vegas. Primarily working on short sales, he found success in that market. Having traction in Las Vegas he later discovered he needed to switch gears to a different area due to the changing market. Colton then moved to California where he experienced a different real estate game. Colton primarily focuses on lead generation for the agents on his team. He finds his passion through the systems and processes that go into finding those leads. This podcast follows Colton's changing career path and how he had to alter his approach to real estate. Also diving into the various ways to generate leads without doing the old “cold-calling” tactic that often is inefficient depending on your situation.

He is not only a real estate for Keller Williams but also for their Sports and Entertainment branch. Starting his career in the battery sales industry in Colorado, he found himself transitioning to real estate and moving to California. What he found throughout working in both sectors is the importance of relationship building and perseverance. A major discussion topic for this episode is the hardships that Aaron faced through the pandemic and how he found the key to becoming successful was focusing on and building client relationships.
This week's Deadpod features another fabulous show from 1973. This week's show comes shortly after the death of Ron 'Pigpen' McKernan on the 8th of February 1973, and is the 2nd night of a three night run at the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale NY, on March 16, 1973. Folks this is a massive 14 song first set, and the come out of the gate flying with a high energy 'China>Rider', complete with a great, perhaps the first, 'feelin' groovy' jam in the transition. The new 'Wave That Flag' follows with some nice keyboard work from Keith. A fine version of 'Looks Like Rain' follows, introduced with a nice intro from Phil. There are highlights throughout the rest of this set, including an early version of 'They Love Each Other' but the closing 'Playin' In the Band' is sure to bring some smiles....

[Guest Speaker: Joey McKernan from Abide Omaha.] Are you a fan of Jesus? Or are you a follower of Jesus? Jesus asked difficult things of his followers and because of their faithfulness the world was forever changed. Jesus still asks of believers today the same difficult things, so the question is... is the world around you changing? Need Prayer?
Welcome back to another episode of the Plant Based News podcast! This week I am delighted to welcome to the podcast animal advocate and founder of Barn Sanctuary Dan McKernan. Dan's journey of animal advocacy goes back a few years to when he decided to leave a successful, high-paying job in the tech industry in Austin, Texas. He decided to return to his home in rural Michigan and was intent on transforming his family's 140-year-old farm into a safe haven for farmed animals. This is how in 2016 Barn Sanctuary was formed. Barn Sanctuary in Chelsea, Michigan is dedicated to rescuing and rehabilitating abused and neglected farmed animals in need. It is currently home to over 100 rescued farmed animals, which reside within the 70-acre property. Barn Sanctuary exemplifies Dan's mission to change the way the world views farmed animals and help lead society towards a more compassionate and plant-based lifestyle.

Ron “Pigpen” McKernan's lifelong devotion to drinking wasn't the cause of his medical issues – chalk those up to a genetic disease. But no matter how he tried, Pig couldn't kick the illness, he couldn't repair the damage that had been done. He played music, followed his diet, and hoped against all hope that something would turn around. But nothing ever really did. He could never quite get up that hill. And just as Pig had slowly departed from the Dead, he was now slowly departing from the world.

In this episode of the HUMAN First podcast, Dr. Courtney shares space with a fellow licensed mental health professional who struggles with her mental health, Megan McKernan. Megan is a LCSW in the state of Maryland who owns a practice called Clarity Wellness Solutions. On her website, she says “Everyone has their own trauma. What matters is how we deal with it” and that is essentially what we discuss today! Here is a list of the topics/questions they discuss: Megan lets us know her astrological sign and who she is as a person Megan believes mental health care is a right, not a privilege Defining PTSD and C-PTSD for the audience As a therapist that struggles, what does that look like for Megan? Setting boundaries while recovering (SO important!) What was it like suffering from childhood trauma and now working with children? How meditation can happen anywhere, even in the car (yessss) What does mindfulness look for Megan Things Megan did that she thought were self care but were actually autopilot Being mindful of the intention of a coping skill (such an important message) Different types of boundaries are there and what worked for Megan Difference between rigid, flexible, and semi-permeable boundaries How showing up authentically validates others inadvertently What fighting the stigma against mental health looks like As a therapist how to push through for your clients Breaking down myths about PTSD You can find Megan on Instagram at: @claritywellness.solutions Learn more about Megan's clinical practice at: https://www.claritywellness.com/ Dr. Courtney Tracy's additional offerings: Instagram: @the.truth.doctor TikTok: @the.truth.doctor Twitter: @_thetruthdoctor SNAP Discover Show: Therapist Reacts Exclusive YouTube Show: The Truth Doctor Show Healing texts: USA & Canada (424) 228-9525 (just shoot her a text!)

Against doctor's orders, Ron “Pigpen” McKernan hit the road one more time with the Grateful Dead. The band's 1972 tour of Europe is legendary. But at the time, Pigpen was just trying to stay above ground. You could hear it in his voice when he took the mic onstage. Close your eyes and his voice was a window into the past. But listen closer, and you'd hear something else. Something you couldn't quite put your finger on. A distance. Some pain. Truth was, Pigpen was on borrowed time.

A dark cloud of death hung over the Grateful Dead as they went into the studio to make what is arguably their masterpiece, American Beauty. Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Brian Jones of the Rolling Stones…they were all gone. All dead at the age of 27. But time didn't stop. Time marched on. The cold hands of death could close in on any of them. But who? When would they go? And how would they go?

Busted down on Bourbon Street. Fleeced by a member of the family. Plastered on a runaway train barreling through the Canadian countryside. As the Grateful Dead faced a number of new challenges and detours, their music moved steadily ahead on solid footing – evidenced by the back-to-basics songs that made up Workingman's Dead, their best album in years.

Though Ron “Pigpen” McKernan continued to feel like he was being pushed out of the Grateful Dead's creative circle, he could still make an impression. Just ask Led Zeppelin, who got an up-close and personal look at Pig's .22-caliber pistol. The fear that they felt standing next to what seemed like, to them, to be an American cowboy in the flesh was dwarfed months later…by the fear and violence that ran rampant at the Altamont Speedway. This episode contains content that may be disturbing to some listeners and includes graphic depictions of violence.

As Haight-Ashbury devolved from a counterculture mecca to a commodified tourist haven, and the Grateful Dead searched for the perfect sound to complement their continued evolution, Ron "Pigpen" McKernan found that his musical contributions were becoming obsolete. It wasn't long before he had to face the fact that the he was finally losing control of the group he had created.

As the Grateful Dead's star continued to rise, Ron "Pigpen" McKernan felt he would rather be a dark star, invisible to the world. But he couldn't hide. Not from the throngs of fans. And not from the San Francisco Police Department. Maybe they saw Pig's leather vest and cowboy hat and figured he was an outlaw. Or maybe they just wanted to outlaw his type and the whole freaky scene along with him. And they tried to do just that in the fall of 1967, as the sun set on the Summer of Love and the Dead waited like sitting ducks at their house at 710 Ashbury Street.

Hey, Dear Young Rocker fans! Listen to Season 5 of the 27 Club to hear the insane details behind the life of one of rock's greatest icons — Ron "Pigpen" McKernan. A founding member of the Grateful Dead. Pigpen wasn't just a member of the Dead. He was the Dead. But just like Brian Jones in the Rolling Stones or Syd Barrett in Pink Floyd, Pigpen felt his role in the Grateful Dead shrink as the rest of the band members expanded their minds and their sound. The story of Pigpen is about a major musical and cultural shift that took place as the 1960s gave way to the 1970s. It's a story of acid tests and bottles of Thunderbird, of angels from hell and a nine-fingered wizard, of busts down on Bourbon Street and shakedowns in the Haight…and of the man who tried to pull his band back down to earth as they continued to get pulled higher into the cosmos. It's a story that ends tragically...at the age of 27. Listen and subscribe to 27 Club on the iHeartRadio app or wherever you get your podcasts! See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
Ron "Pigpen" McKernan wonders if he's the only person not tripping inside a warehouse in the burned-out Watts neighborhood of Los Angeles, where the Grateful Dead are soundtracking yet another acid test. He further wonders if he's the only one who recognizes the gravity of the situation when the LAPD burst in. Later, he falls hard for a likeminded blues lover who turns on her lovelight. But not before he falls into a pit of despair when he is unknowingly dosed and embarks on a trip from which he may never return.

Ron "Pigpen" McKernan could already feel his influence in the band waning from early on. Even back when the Grateful Dead were still known as the Warlocks. Whereas Pig subsisted on raw power fueled by alcohol and blues music, the rest of the members of the band were functioning on a completely different level. They listened to music, talked literature, and explored the cosmos...while loaded to the gills on LSD. Pig did not partake. He found himself not just playing in a band, but navigating a world of merry pranksters, acid tests, and long, strange trips.

Ron "Pigpen" McKernan was the primary figure and driving force at the core of the Grateful Dead's origin story. He was an old soul, a digger of deep moods, a devotee of biker chic, and a tireless student of the blues. His devotion to classic Americana kept the band grounded even when they found themselves lost in experimental improvisation. But as the Dead evolved and became more famous, Pigpen became more of an outlier. While the rest of the band dropped acid, he drank Thunderbird. While they looked to the future for a new strain of American music, he looked back to the past. And by the time he died in 1973 at the age of 27, the band that Pigpen had started all those years ago no longer had room for him.

Get ready for Season 5 of the 27 Club to take the strange and not-so-long trip of Ron "Pigpen" McKernan, a founding member of the Grateful Dead. Pigpen wasn't just a member of the Dead. He was the Dead. But just like Brian Jones in the Rolling Stones or Syd Barrett in Pink Floyd, Pigpen felt his role in the Grateful Dead shrink as the rest of the band members expanded their minds and their sound. The story of Pigpen is about a major musical and cultural shift that took place as the 1960s gave way to the 1970s. It's a story of acid tests and bottles of Thunderbird, of angels from hell and a nine-fingered wizard, of busts down on Bourbon Street and shakedowns in the Haight…and of the man who tried to pull his band back down to earth as they continued to get pulled higher into the cosmos. It's a story that ends tragically...at the age of 27. The 27 Club is hosted by Jake Brennan, creator and host of the award-winning Disgraceland podcast, and produced by iHeartRadio and Double Elvis.
