Pods from the Far Beyond
With Palden Jenkins on voicebox and brainbox
from the far west of Cornwall, UK
Latest podcast: Us Together.
About the collective unconscious - the stuff that goes on behind and beneath the 'official line' in the public discourse and in our own minds - and the inherent psychic unity of humanity, now standing on the threshold of something really big. This topic has preoccupied all my life - the question, how will fundamental change actually come about?

This is an occasional series of insightful podcasts on a wide range of subjects by a 1960s veteran who never quite gave up. Now doing battle with bone marrow cancer (myeloma), I still have a few things to say and do before I go.
Whether or not you agree with this stuff, or whether or not I'm correct, I hope it connects a few dots, assisting your ruminations.
I've been a founder of several projects, a writer and editor of quite a few books, a speaker from many stages, a humanitarian, peacemaker, seer and historian. Oh, and an astrologer and geomancer. And a webmaster, and so on.
These podcasts tell of some of the things I've learned along the way. The way continues. You never really get to the destination - there's always more - though, strangely, accepting that makes getting there easier.
Since contracting cancer in 2019, I haven't been able to get around as before, so I just take short hobbling walks. Living in a homely cabin on an organic farm near Land's End, reasonably far from that madding crowd, I'm listening and watching, writing and podcasting whatever comes up as the zeitgeist twiggles my antennae. And yours. In a way, you listeners pull it out of me.
When the weather is good, the recording studio is just down the field by a stream near the woods - with geese, crows and chaffinches providing soundscape services. Other times it's at my home. Or up the hill. Or when someone takes me out for a jaunt.
These podcasts aren't scripted. Naturally I think up the subject and a few talking points. But a lot of this is quite spontaneous, following a thread. When you've been giving attention to particular issues and subjects over many decades, you do get quite knowledgeable in them!
