Hollywood, the counter culture, media and rock and roll has produced many characters over the years that have formed the fabric of our culture. Elliot Mintz stands as of one of those greats who, in my opinion, is one of the most astute cultural anthropologists of our time. This podcast was done in his living room as we waxed poetic about the early days of celebrity culture in 1963, the innocence that surrounded that time, spiritual integrity, John Lennon, Bob Dylan and so much more. I found this interview to be one of the most fascinating and engrossing I've ever done. Also, note that Elliot has one of the great voices and most articulate delivery systems ever. Enjoy.
NOTE - very long into rant about Brexit and the illusion of separation.

The genius of Duncan Trussell. Duncan comes by the kitchen table for the first time to do what only he can do. Many areas of the multi-verse were explored but what was most potent to me was getting Duncan's personal revelations on why spiritual practice works in his life. His humor, intelligence and razor sharp insightfulness were a joy to play with.
Duncan Trussell is host of the wildly popular podcast, "The Duncan Trussell Family Hour." Duncan is a comedian, podcaster, spiritual aspirant and all around genius of the 21st Century paradigm.
Have you ever wondered it's like to be completely content, wise and truly happy? Spending an hour with Sharon Salzberg will give you a glimpse into that reality. On this episode we explore the nature of self inquiry, how to start a practice and integration into the material world. I'm truly grateful that Sharon stopped by the IAH kitchen table to do this podcast. What a gift.
Born in New York City in 1952, Sharon Salzberg experienced a childhood involving considerable loss and turmoil. An early realization of the power of meditation to overcome personal suffering determined her life direction. Her teaching and writing now communicates that power to a worldwide audience of practitioners. She offers non-sectarian retreat and study opportunities for participants from widely diverse backgrounds. Sharon first encountered Buddhism in 1969, in an Asian philosophy course at the State University of New York, Buffalo.

I stepped into the vortex of Amanda's 72 Winnebago to do the podcast and slide into the world of art, consciousness, viewing the world around us and how to keep communities vibrant and productive. This was one of the most fun episodes I've ever done, it was such a joy to surf the waves of bliss with Amanda at LiB. Her amazing partner Joe Bob Merritt sat in too!
