Five podcasts that look at life and its meanings from five different perspectives. All are part of the same large, comprehensive understanding.
The understanding is this: that Life, that God/ Source/ Universe, that That Which Is, the Great I Am, that whatever you call this adventure, this experience of which we are all inexorably a part, life, continually tries to draw us into a deeper knowing. A deeper knowing of who we are, of what All That Is is. The LukeyoutheU podcasts explore avenues of understanding that particularly speak to me: science, the Bible, personal experience, metaphysics, and religion.
I trace the origin of the podcasts to an early morning phone call (early my time zone) in the winter of 2017. Connor, Julian, and I reconnected on a three-way call across nine time zones (from California to Spain) to catch up, to talk about science, what we were doing, and meaning. The two of them had decided to create a podcast about science which they named Straight from a Scientist. Both are pursuing advanced degrees in neuroscience; they want to help make known what is being discovered by researchers today, as reported by the researchers themselves. They invited my participation and support. I jumped at the chance. Years ago, I for a brief time hosted a call-in AM radio show in Palm Springs, CA and caught the bug: I liked radio. Podcasting was a natural.
And the ideas grew, and expanded. Soon I found myself asking a few friends, interesting friends with interesting, thought-provoking views on life, to be on podcasts. First Marc, then Daniel, then Lisa, and then Haas came on board. I am the lead host on all the LukeyoutheU podcasts. Connor and Julian handle theirs. I continue to serve as an advisor to SFS.
I present here five podcast series from which you may drink. Choose, if you will, your elixir.
