In addition to regularly highlighting shows created by members of our passionate community, we provide you with a weekly selection of shows produced exclusively in-house, currently including:
The Feedback Loop
A sociopolitical, philosophical, and psychological exploration of technological trends and how they're impacting the transformation of consciousness and culture, from the individual to society at large. Every episode features in-depth interviews with a thought-leader or changemaker, and is hosted by Steven Parton.
This week we sit down with cognitive psychologist and long-time professor at UC Irvine, Donald Hoffman. Hoffman has a long history working with some of the greatest minds in the history of humanity, including Francis Crick who was part of the team that discovered the double helix of DNA. His own endeavors are no less revolutionary, as he's currently spearheading a new theory that argues humans evolved a perception of reality that looks drastically different from the true appearance of objective reality. It seems a hard argument to make, but once you hear his ideas you'll understand how insightful and profound his work is. In addition to an in-depth exploration of this theory, we also discuss the evolutionary impacts of online dating, the future of artificial intelligence, and a whole bunch more. Donald Hoffman's newest book, A Case Against Reality, comes out August 13 and can be found on Amazon. *** Questions? Ideas? Recommendations?

This week we're joined by Elizabeth Parrish, CEO of biotech and longevity company, Bioviva. Liz gained worldwide renown in 2015 when she flew to Colombia to inject herself with one of the gene therapies her company was testing, making her patient zero. In this conversation, we explore her motivations for such drastic measures, the current state of life-extension and longevity research, and how she believes society will be shaped by this rapidly advancing biotechnology.
