Five podcasts presenting five ways of understanding life. Some obviously complimentary, others less so. They all make sense, in different ways, in my world.
On the first four, I am the lead; on the last, an affiliate. I invite you to listen and consider.
The Consciousness Shift metaphysical
Lisa Stancati & Jake Knight podcast
Heroes of the Quran & the Bible religious
Hass Sartawi & Jake Knight podcast
Luke's Perspective, and Ours biblical
Daniel Alexander & Jake Knight podcast
Conversations with Marc experiential
Marc Maynon & Jake Knight podcast
Straight from a Scientist scientific
Connor Wander & Julian Dallmeier podcast
These approaches are, of course, not the only ones possible; nor are they the only helpful, useful, or good ones. They meet those criteria, and speak to me.
The opportunity of life, no matter which belief systems get you there, is twofold: to live your life better, more fully and completely; and to prepare a better yet for those who will follow. A better tomorrow for our species and the environment. For all beings on earth.
The LyU podcasts got their start in the winter of 2017. Julian Dallmeier, Connor Wander, and I reconnected on a three-way call across nine time zones (Spain, North Carolina, and California) to catch up. To say hello, talk about science, what we were doing, and meaning. They had decided to create a podcast called Straight from a Scientist. They invited my support; I jumped at the chance. Years earlier, I had for a brief time hosted a call-in AM radio show in Palm Springs, CA, and caught the radio bug. Podcasting was a natural.
Both of them are pursuing advanced degrees in neuroscience. The objective of SFS is to help make known what is being discovered by scientific researchers today, reported by the researchers themselves.
The idea of podcasts grew inside of me, and expanded. I found myself asking a few friends, interesting friends with intriguing, thought-provoking perspectives on life, to be on podcasts as cohosts with me. First Marc Maynon (Conversations with Marc), then Daniel Alexander (Luke’s Perspective, and Ours), then Lisa Stancati (The Consciousness Shift) , and then Haas Sartawi (Heroes of the Quran and the Bible) came on board.
I am the lead host on the four LukeyoutheU podcasts. Connor and Julian host Straight from a Scientist.
