Chaos Magician + Renegade Anthroposophist = Podcast

5 Jan

IMG_4011Happy to announce I’m the first guest of 2017 on one of my favorite podcasts, Rune Soup, hosted by author and occultist, Gordon White. (If you want to skip past this stuff, just scroll down to the podcast.)

I found Gordon through a series of synchronicities: Last year, I spoke to an occulty friend of mine in San Francisco after three years of not communicating (nothing bad, we just sort of dropped out of each other’s lives). “Conner, you’ve got to read this book called The Chaos Protocols! It’s a completely new take on the economic climate and how to engage with money and the world we live in now,” he said. Or something to that effect.

I trust my friend’s taste, but to be honest, I did what I often do when people recommend stuff to me – I  thought, “Sure, sure. Another magick book. I’ll get to it in 2052.”

Later that day, I turned on a podcast that I love and am often happily frustrated by, Skeptiko, hosted by Alex Tsakiris (you may remember my conversation about scientific knowledge with Alex from December 2014). The guest? None other than Gordon White. It was a great interview.

Okay, okay, I’ll look this guy up. When I checked twitter, I saw that we followed each other. Huh? I had no memory of following him, nor of him following me. He must have just tweeted something awesome and I instinctively hit the Follow button. A few months later, I’d read The Chaos Ptotocols (it’s excellent, as are his other books, Star.Ships and Pieces of Eight) appeared on Episode 24 of his podcast, Rune Soup (which is also the name of his excellent occult-meets-politics website), and was becoming fast friends with Gordon.

My second appearance is even better than the first, in my opinion. We talk about 2017, gwwhy you shouldn’t despair, what the state of the world can mean for us spiritually, why it’s important to decolonize our thoughts, the power of forgiveness, and more. It’s all part of my work this year to radiate empowerment to you, dear reader, dear viewer, dear friend. This includes my upcoming online course, Radical Undoing: Decolonize Your Mind with Sex, Science, the Occult, and Philosophy (sign up!); which I talk about on the podcast.

Let’s become the prisms through which inspiration, imagination, and creative engagement refract and illuminate.

Here’s the podcast! Enjoy!

    Hello Conner, my fellow anthroposophical renegade and occult chaos purveyor in LA-LA-Land!

    You starred a few days ago in a great synchronicity that led me to comment here. I was informing a Steinerista Facebook friend in Las Vegas who was alarmed about Pizzagate to go deeper down the rabbit hole by reading the many articles about it by Jasun Horsely of the Auticulture blog.

    Best article to start with is here:
    https://auticulture.wordpress.com/2016/11/06/here-come-the-designer-fascists-the-perception-managers-last-hurrah/

    I then thought of 2 other bloggers to recommend. One was Chris Knowles of Secret Sun and the other was Rune Soup. When I got there to copy the link, I saw that your Podcast with Gordon was right there!

    Now the reason I like Gordon’s site is that I am a friend of Peter Levenda who has made many appearances on Rune Soup. Right now I have just finished 3 hours interviewing with Jasun about Peter Levenda, which will become a Podcast soon. It is all about the wonderfully chaotic “Disharmonic Convergence” I call it, of the occult merging of Lovecraft’s horror and UFO disclosure that Peter is orchestrating through his collaboration with Tom de Longe on the Sekret Machines trilogy about UFOs and disclosure — and Peter’s own recent publication of his novel, The Lovecraft Code, not to mention his wild and crazy past as the possible real author, or not, of the infamous Simon Necronomicon that came out in 1977.

    Let’s do lunch out here sometime. We’ve got a lot to talk about.

    Best regards,

    Tom Mellett
    Van Nuys, CA
