KMO plays the second half of AyasminA’s interview with Dr. Stephan V. Beyer, author of Singing to the Plants: A Guide to Mestizo Shamanism in the Upper Amazon. Steve details the importance of the auditory aspect of the Ayahuasca experience, and then the conversation turns to the paternalism and condescension of First World defenders of indigenous peoples. Later in the episode, KMO plays a clip from the It’s Not Us, It’s You! podcast about the totalitarian aesthetic of Wal*Mart’s new generic product packaging.

Music by Zarathustra.

Thanks for posting the rest of the interview, I really enjoyed listening to everything Steve Beyer had to say. It was refreshing, inspirational, and insightful. His perspective reminds me a bit of a friend of mine who's also an Aymaran elder of the Amazon.

I really think the two of you should speak, at the very least by phone. If you would like to know more we can discuss this via email.

As for the clip you played about Walmart packaging is hilariously ironic.

To open up with comment "its just soup... its not that big a deal." with regards to the generic quality of what's inside and then highlighting the importance that packaging to the point about being judgmental is absurd.

I hope these ladies at the very least go and watch Food Inc.
