  1. Have become a huge fan of your podcast in the past month or 2 – now on ‘heavy rotation” with Sam Harris, Eric Weinstein and other articulate, insightful and provocative podcasts.
    Guest request: Margaret Wheatley (recent book: “Who Do We Choose to Be?”, very “GameB” adjacent, and any of the more articulate advocates for Integral Theory and the maps/frameworks under that umbrella (Ken Wilber, Jeff Salzman, Robb Smith, Mark Forman and others).
    Thanks for an outstanding podcast and a consistently great guest list! Have reviewed you on Apple’s podcast site and have shared with friends.

  2. Just started listening to this podcast. I never leave podcast comments, just ratings, but this is simply fantastic, one of the best podcasts I’ve listened too. I’m the target demographic and some of the theoretical stuff is almost out of my grasp, but is worth the focused attention some of them require. Have had my head blown a couple of times, which rarely happens listening to a podcast – had to pull off the freeway in one instance. The guests are stellar intellectuals or practitioners in disciplines that outside of mine, but they are reigned in appropriately. Its comforting to know these people are out there thinking about this stuff.

  3. This is a terrific show and I would be glad to support it. Every episode leaves me with more books and blogs to read, which is fabulous. So it would be nice for us all if you added a media list (books, videos, other podcasts) that came up in discussion to your summary area. Key names and so on can miss some of these items, and I often listen where I cannot stop and write them down. Thanks for considering. Keep up the great work!

  4. Jim — kudos on the show, the content is excellent.

    However, the audio quality has been overmaximized/boosted to such an extent that I find it almost unlistenable. I was listening to the David Brin episode for a bit last night but stopped because of the sound quality.

    You are clearly using some kind of limiter/maximizer on the audio, which is fine, but you need to dial it WAY back so it’s just kicking in a little bit. As it is, EVERY WORD IS SO LOUD THAT IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU AND YOUR GUEST ARE BOTH YELLING AT ME WHEN I LISTEN TO IT. Also any dynamics/expressiveness/emphasis in speech is lost when you use such an extreme compression setting.

    FWIW I am an audio professional and know something about these topics…would hate to see your show get less attention than it deserves because of the sound quality.

    1. Hi Sarah. Thanks for listening. Dr. Jill Tarter is our next podcast, scheduled for release Monday, September 23rd. In the next two months, we’ll have interviews with startup specialist Sara Kindsfater-Yerkes, workplace consultant Bonnitta Roy, complexity expert Jessica Flack, and filmmaker Nora Bateson, all of whom identify as women. Please feel free to suggest guests we should go after. Thank you!

  5. I used to work for you at Pinpoint Publishing. There was a startup that was ahead of its time. I’m glad to see you are still at the leading edge.
