Dr David Sands, as well as being a rather talented poet, is a professor of Plant Pathology, Bacteriology and Biocontrol of Weeds with Plant Pathogens.

When he’s not discovering and naming Maiasaura, or advising on the Jurassic Park movies (where he was part of the inspiration for Sam Neill’s character) Dr Jack Horner has some fascinating things to say about slime mold.Read More
How do I describe this guy? He’s the sort of man that would not like any sort of description, I believe! But, in short, he’s one of the most amazing sound-effects and voice guys in the world. He’s very respected and you’ve probably heard his voice in everything from Doug to Men in Black to A Prairie Home Companion.Read More
I was up in the Bay of Islands and stayed at this incredible place called Donkey Bay. I was invited there by my friend David Maxwell who runs Eighth Wonder Travel. It just so happens that his half-brother, Patrick Crawshaw did the interior design for this unique place!Read More
In this episode, Doug and I are walking along the coast on the North Island of New Zealand near Te Arai. He works there at the Te Arai Lodge where we stayed for a few nights. It’s a really cool family-run operation and I don’t think I’ve ever eaten so well (or healthily!) in my life. Doug does many things… podcaster, healer, yogi, builder, and well, you name it! Our talk spans from everything consciousness to psychedelics! Big surprise there, eh? Anyway, enjoy!Read More
In this episode, while walking on the El Camino in Spain, I talk with Kevin Kelly about one of his many projects, the 10,000 Year Library.

In this episode, while walking on the El Camino in Spain, I talk with Kevin Kelly about one of his many projects, the 10,000 Year Library. And yes, you can participate! It’s a really fun concept… I won’t spoil it! By the way, I could listen to Kevin Kelly (one of my intellectual heroes) talk about anything! Sometimes I sneak into his home and just stand in the closet and listen to him talk about things like laundry, doing the dishes, and strange people in his closet.Read More
In this moody episode, I wander with Kevin Rose through a beautiful forest in Portland, Oregon. Before I tell you what we talk about, let me tell you more about Kevin!

Besides that, he was a founder with Revisiion3, Pownce, and Milk. After all that, he was a partner at Google Ventures.Read More
Matt Mullenweg is not just the founder of WordPress and now Automattic, but he was also my lucky roommate on this week-long 200km hike through Spain. Not only is he warm at night, but he really knows how to work that loofa in the shower.
We share many commonalities including the love of writing, Burning Man, hiking, and experimental and self-exploration use mind-expanding substances.Read More
