    On this episode of the Paranormal Portal Podcast, we welcome Dr. Jeff Meldrum to the show. Dr. Meldrum is a man that needs no introduction in the world of Bigfoot/Sasquatch. He is a regular voice of authority on pretty much every and any show that seeks to explore the validity of this incredible legend. Dr. Meldrum has faced a mountain of adversity for his stance regarding the potential validity of the Sasquatch Phenomena, but he has persevered both professionally and personally in the face of this incredible opposition. He has brought so much credibility to a topic that has been completely dismissed by the scientific community, as a whole. Through countless appearances on Television and documentaries and authoring and incredible book "Sasquatch: Legend Meets Science". My discussion with Dr. Meldrum was an incredible experience, not only to hear his incredible insights on the Sasquatch phenomena, but to get a chance to know the man, himself. Join us for this amazing journey into the Science of Sasquatch and so much more. Enter the Paranormal Portal...if you dare!

Mau is co-founder and CEO of Massive Change Network, a holistic design collective based in the Chicago area."I'm very, very concerned that we are already in a time of being lost, that a lot of people feel lost, and they feel like the world has kind of moved out from under them, and that they have lost their bearings.

Design is a methodology that is an empowering methodology within a condition of being unmoored.So when you don't know what to do, design is a methodology of figuring out what to do, and it's why we're doing a project that we call Massive Action, which is to really give people the tools of empowerment to give them the power to design their life because over the coming couple of decades people are going to see a level of turmoil and change that has not happened in human history. The foundation of any culture is energy, and we have to change fundamentally our source of energy, which is going to change everything else.

    In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the human fascination with bird feathers went a little too far. Women's hats and dresses featured extravagant feathers from birds both near and far. The trade in feathers drove several species, from the Little Egret to the Great Crested Grebe, to near-extinction. Fed up with the killing of wild birds for fashion, a group of British women met to put an end to this cruelty. The organization became the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds, or RSPB, which continues to be a leader in bird conservation today.More info and transcript at BirdNote.org. Want more BirdNote?

    In this episode, the legendary Ramsey Dukes returns to talk about chaos magick, the Aeon of Horus, his Guru alter-ego "Baba Rebok," and lots more! From his Thelemapedia bio: Lionel Snell was born in England in 1945 and brought up in the ‘arts and crafts' milieu of the Gloucestershire countryside but won scholarships and County financial backing for formal education at Clifton College, Bristol, and Emmanuel College, Cambridge (1964-68), where he officially studied pure mathematics but also studied the works of Aleister Crowley in the university library and held his first “ritual happening” in the mid 1960s. Being brought up in a culture of alternative lifestyles and radical thought formed a contrast with his subsequent traditional education with its later emphasis on science. This lead to a lifelong interest in building bridges between the scientific/materialist worldview and alternative spirituality/paranormal—an approach very different from those New Age philosophies that seek to reconcile or equate science and spirit. This is strongly reflected in Ramsey Dukes' writings where he addresses Science, Magic, Art and Religion as four ‘cultures' as an extension of CP Snow's popular ‘two culture' concept.

    We have 60K-90K thoughts a day and half of those thoughts are repeated from the day before and then half of those thoughts are negative thoughts. Over time, these repeated thoughts add up to what we think of as our personality, our truth, our reality. But what happens if we don't like our situation, personality, or reality? What if we desire change in our life? That only happens when we change our perception of reality through our perspective on what is real and what is true. Being mindful of our thoughts is an excellent way to shift into a new reality. This meditation aims to help re-wire the mind one breath at a time. Namaste.

    There's been an explosion of interest in psychedelics over the last 10 years, and phrases like “psychedelic-assisted therapy” have gone from the relative fringes of the mental health conversation to bursting into the mainstream. Alongside a great deal of hype is a growing body of research revealing the potential of substances like psilocybin and MDMA as novel treatments for depression, addiction, and PTSD. On today's episode of Being Well, Forrest is joined by Dr. Albert Garcia-Romeu from the Johns Hopkins Center for Psychedelic and Consciousness Research. They explore the history and current state of psychedelic research, their subjective effects, the necessity of the “trip,” how psychedelics work in the brain, why researchers are so interested in these substances, and what a psychedelic-assisted therapy session looks like.About Our Guest: Dr. Garcia-Romeu is a member of the Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences faculty at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. His research examines the effects of psychedelics in humans, with a focus on psilocybin as an aid in the treatment of addiction.Watch the Episode: Prefer watching video?

    It's always a little humbling to think about what affects your words and actions might have on other people, not only right now but potentially well into the future. Now take that humble feeling and promote it to all of humanity, and arbitrarily far in time. How do our actions as a society affect all the potential generations to come? William MacAskill is best known as a founder of the Effective Altruism movement, and is now the author of What We Owe the Future. In this new book he makes the case for longtermism: the idea that we should put substantial effort into positively influencing the long-term future. We talk about the pros and cons of that view, including the underlying philosophical presuppositions.Mindscape listeners can get 50% off What We Owe the Future, thanks to a partnership between the Forethought Foundation and Bookshop.org.

    Dose of Leadership with Richard Rierson | Authentic & Courageous Leadership Development

    Power Over or Power With? There is no question about it – leadership must evolve to re-imagine the new world of work. We're faced with a time that may not have precedent, but that doesn't mean it has no roadmap. The roadmap to success after any crisis is one that must be paved with optimism, hope and resilience. It's almost a given that we have to believe in something that is larger than ourselves – a purpose, a promise, a spirit – to energize us when we are weary. Discover how the Science of Happiness can help you. https://returnonhappiness.com/ We believe everyone deserves to be happy, but in today's world everywhere you turn there is division and negativity. At BriteVibe we have created a global movement to bring 8 million people together who are inspired to Live Brite, Live Bold and share BriteVibes.

    The Eastern Phoebe (pictured here) is one of the most familiar flycatchers east of the Rockies. Because the Eastern Phoebe repeats its name when it sings, it's a pretty straightforward voice to identify and remember. But there's another flycatcher east of the Rockies that whistles its name over and over: It's the Eastern Wood-Pewee. This bird is more often heard than seen. And it wouldn't be unusual to hear a pewee and a phoebe at the same spot. With careful listening, though, you can tell them apart by their singing styles.More info and transcript at BirdNote.org. Want more BirdNote? Subscribe to our weekly newsletter.

Dr. Peay completed a master's degree at the Yale School of Forestry and Environment Science (F&ES) in 2003 and obtained a PhD in 2008 from UC Berkeley's Dept. of Environmental Science, Policy and Management (ESPM) in Matteo Garbelotto's lab. He completed postdoctoral training at UC Berkeley in the Dept. of Plant & Microbial Biology with Tom Bruns, and at Stanford in the Dept. of Biology with Tadashi Fukami. He was an Assistant Professor in the Dept. of Plant Pathology at the University of Minnesota from 2011-2012 before coming to Stanford in 2012 to join the Dept. of Biology in his current position. The Peay lab studies the ecological processes that structure natural communities and the links between community structure and the cycling of nutrients and energy through ecosystems - focusing on fungi! Much of the research focuses on plant-fungal root associations, better known as mycorrhizas, which constitute one of the most pervasive mutualisms in terrestrial ecosystems. By integrating their lines of research, they hope to weave together a 'roots-to-biomes' understanding of plant-microbe symbiosis.   TOPICS COVERED:   A Love of Nature, Inspiration in the East   From Environmental Consulting into Ecological Understanding   Discovering Fungal Symbioses   Defining Ecology & Community Assembly   Understanding Scale in Community Ecology    Embracing Fungi in All of Their Ecological Roles   Facultative Capacities of Fungi   Mycorrhizal Lessons in Community Ecology    Broadening Ecological Perspectives Beyond Purely Competitive Frameworks   MISSPs & Mediating Mycorrhizal Interactions   Fungal Biogeography   Ecological Succession & Stages of Community Assembly   Future of Mycorrhizal Research   Mapping Fungal Genes to Ecological Functions   EPISODE RESOURCES:   Peay Lab Academic Website: https://mykophile.stanford.edu/   Dr. Peay Google Scholar: https://scholar.google.com/citations?user=E6GRsP4AAAAJ&hl=en   Dipterocarpaceae - tree family: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dipterocarpaceae   Chytrids: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chytridiomycota   Pinus ponderosa (tree species): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pinus_ponderosa   Suilllus pungens (fungus species): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suillus_pungens

    Understanding Death to Understand Life with Andrew Steele and Carl Zimmer

    Science can't fully explain what life is. Three experts try anyway in a conversation about life, death and our desire to push back the expiration date. Talking about life and death is tricky for anyone, even scientists. Despite considerable research over the course of generations, scientists still don't fully understand what life is, what death is or even what separates the two.  But where science lacks understanding, there are theories and questions about what makes something alive and how to keep living things from aging. And there are intriguing thoughts on the ethics of efforts to prolong life. These are the questions at the heart of this episode of the Crosscut Talks podcast, featuring Andrew Steele, author of the book Ageless: The New Science of Getting Older Without Getting Old, and Carl Zimmer, who writes the New York Times column Matter and is the author of Life's Edge: The Search for What It Means to Be Alive. Led in conversation by University of Washington doctoral candidate Halli Benasutti, these two experts discuss life, death, aging and consciousness. And while they may not be able to arrive on concrete definitions of these elusive concepts, they certainly have very interesting insight into each. --- Credits Host: Mark Baumgarten Producers: Sara Bernard, Brooklyn Jamerson-Flowers Event producers: Jake Newman, Andrea O'Meara Engineers: Resti Bagcal, Viktoria Ralph --- If you would like to support Crosscut, go to crosscut.com/membership.

    In this 138th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens. This week, we discuss what fatwas and cancel culture have in common. Why are we allowing zealots to decide what we can say and do by fiat? The circuitry of religion has an ancient history (even when it goes off the rails, as in the attack on Salman Rushdie); it is being hijacked by a secular cult. This new cult is targeting apostates, and heretics. The new cult does not admit when it is wrong—the CDC simply puts out new guidelines that recommend treating vaccinated and unvaccinated people as equivalent. The new cult sneaks in ideology when you're not looking. The new cult is anti-science, anti-reality, and anti-democracy. ***** Support the sponsors of the show: Thesis: personalized nootropics for motivation, creativity, confidence and more.
