There's a new Podcast out called Chronicles of the Psychonautilus. I'm listening to the third episode right now. Apparently, Adam, the Captain of the Psychonautilus, took me to task in his first episode over some incendiary comments I made about self-satisfied advocates of drug-free meditation in a previous installment of the C-Realm Podcast. (I have no idea which episode.)

I haven't listened to the episode in which Adam responds to my comments. I thought it better to listen to a later episode first in order to get a feel for the program without forming any initial impressions based on material that I'm liable to take personally.

In the episode I'm listening to, Capt. Adam sings the praises of Red Ice Creations radio, which I just discovered within the last week or so. I saw that the C-Realm Podcast was getting hits from a blog called The Cleaver. I checked it out and found that the most recent entry links to an episode of Red Ice Creations featuring an interview with Neil Kramer, the keeper of the Cleaver. I listened to it, was impressed, and invited Neil to participate in the C-Realm. He accepted and will be the featured guest on C-Realm Podcast episode 71.

Well, I'm going to tune in more closely to this podcast I'm listening to. I like the vibe of it. It's very sedate and personal. And just as I typed that last sentence, it ended. In any event, it reminds me a lot of the one episode of Choogle On with Uncle Weed that I've heard so far.

Adam invited me to contribute an interview to his podcast, and on the strength of the episode I just heard I think I'll give it a go.

"Self-satisfied drug-free meditation", eh?

Background audio kinda new agey. Content seemed personal and rambling, but perhaps he needs more time to hammer out his methods. Rather proselytizing. Consciousness isn't freedom, and this reflects a profoundly inaccurate understanding, even from a shamanic perspective.

Listening to the clip he played from your guest, Michael Hoffman, "meditation without drugs accomplishes nothing", I have to soundly side in opposition. I'd say your guest didn't know what he was talking about, to put it very nicely. He has deluded himself with a laughable lie.

It seems like you're responding to an episode of The Psychonautilus that I haven't heard yet. By way of clarification, I haven't interviewed Michael Hoffman, but I did play a clip from a podcast that he put out in response to Max Freakout's attempted encapsulation of the Ego Death theory in an episode of Psychonautica.

It was in the first episode, a little over a third of the way in. I'm not sure where the audio from Hoffman came from, but it didn't include any dialogue with you - it was just him speaking.

I really can't imagine how oblivious someone would have to be to say something like, "Drug free meditation is bunk." I haven't listened to the reciprocal C-Realm episode so I don't know how you responded, but I can hardly fault people for adamantly disagreeing.

Hello from the Psychonautilus,
Hello everyone this Adam, creator of The Chronicles of the Psychonautilus.
Thank you very much KMO for your warm introduction to my podcast. I am very happy to be able to communicate with you and your listeners I know that you have a very astute and intelligent audience. So I am listening carefully and taking all advice to heart. Yes I do agree the is much hammering needed. As I said in my first podcast I had no idea just how difficult this work really is. KMO makes it sound so easy.
I would like to ask ankh f n khonsu if he might elaborate a little on what he is saying here:
"Rather proselytizing. Consciousness isn't freedom, and this reflects a profoundly inaccurate understanding, even from a shamanic perspective."
I am not sure what you mean by this. Especially about the "from a shamanic perspective" point. Anyway if you care to elaborate I am curious and would like to know more about what your thinking.
Well about the rambling and sedate parts I get that. I don't think anyone wants to be put to sleep by listening to a podcast. So I will definitely work on that part. I'll try more coffee see if that works.
My question for everyone is about the "personal" aspect. Is that a good thing or a bad thing? I don't think I could tell the stories that I was telling without getting personal and even as in the last episode at the end emotional. I guess thats just the way I am. I certainly do not consider myself "new age" really more of and archaic soul really nothing new about that.
Well thanks to everyone for there impute and for listening. And thanks again to KMO.

Re: Hello from the Psychonautilus,

Definitely a good thing. Here's an example of someone trying to do a podcast on similar topics who shares nothing of himself and consequently fall flat on his face>
