    Episode 24 You Have The Power!!!

    09/12/2017 Duración: 13min

    Just in time for the Holidays, a way to be a little tiny bit optimistic about humanity.  Yes. Good news.  From the honoring of Colin Kaepernick to the lifelong Republicans in Alabama who have yes, already voted for Doug Jones to the wondrous, generous, life saving action being taken by the Clinton Foundation in Puerto Rico.  There are angels among us, and if, like me, you sometimes (ok maybe 92% of the time) feel despair about the state of things....its awfully nice to realize that goodness exists.  So, tune in for a quick blast of uplift then return to whatever you are doing for the holidays!

Communicate with the show via Twitter or Facebook! What’s this one all about? Join me as I venture forth into Georgia’s 6th district! Yes, your intrepid podcasting friend hopped on a plane, and went to canvas for Jon Ossoff in the final weekend before the big election! This episode is about my experience—a blue state democrat in a red state republican district. I realized in the editing of the show….which is, in the main, about the special election—- that it is actually about a much bigger picture. So, here’s a disclaimer….this episode IS about the Ossoff campaign, but it is also in many ways the experience I had, bumping into a culture that is manifestly different then my own. If I offend anyone at all, I’m deeply sorry. If I seem condescending or smug in my Blue State Elitism….I am even MORE sorry. I have tried to tell the story

    Episode 19         Fear and Loathing in America Please email feedback to ME at howyoucansavetheworld@gmail I’d love to hear from you! Communicate with the show via Twitter or Facebook! What’s this one all about? This episode looks at the link between the life and death struggle our planet is engaged in, and the ambient fear we are all reacting to. Can animal and vegetable alarm pheromones trigger fear in humanoids? Additionally what about the unprecedented high levels of CO2 we are all suddenly trying to live with? If high concentrations of CO2 make mice frightened, what on earth is it doing to us? I explore the science behind the possibilty that our heightened fear responses may be triggering a vengeful return to tribalism that threatens both our common sense as well as our survival as a species. Take a xanax, or a belt of bourbon, and tune in!!!! Show topics  Human fear pheromones, they exist!! How does a pheromone work, for crying out loud?
