After some discussion about Hug Nation, we get into the juicy stuff. Was Anthony Bourdain’s suicide actually the result of a conspired murder? I saw this claim posted in my Facebook feed and it became a powerful tool to look at my brain, conspiracy theories, and cognitive bias.
We celebrated our 100th 1st Saturdays this weekend. And, inspired by some words by Ram Dass, I discuss why these 8 years of outreach have been so inspiring and uplifting (instead of draining.) The key is Oneness.
Some silliness, some tears, and some dangerous medical advice. Plus deep thoughts about feeling reconnected to my purpose.
With the passing of Burning Man’s co-founder, there is lots to celebrate and remember. Here are some of my favorite stories and inspirations.
I attended the 1st Coachella Music Festival in 1999. (One year after my 1st Burn.) But I wonder, “would I still feel welcome there?” Not sure if my perception is accurate, but the stereotype of judgmental Instagram fashionistas and Kardashian-studded VIP areas proves a good contrast to the Radical Inclusion vibe we try to cultivate at Burning Man. I also wanted to take a moment to talk about another type of Radical Inclusion that is illustrated by a new art project, “Stair Ramps to Heaven.” While not all Playa experiences should be tailored so that everyone can experience it, when possible, it is a nice exercise to ask, “Could this art be enhanced to make it available to more people?” Creating ramp access for mutant vehicles is a perfect example of that. In this episode, I get deeper into both these types
