Heroes of the Bible and the Quran
The Consciousness Shift
Some Conversations with Marc
Luke's Perspective, and Ours
Enrich your life, expand your thinking, listen in.
Podcasts presented without razzmatazz. No theme music, voiced-over intros, or editing. Instead, two people (occasionally more) talking about stories important to us.
Heroes of the Bible and the Quran HBQ
We tell the stories of major figures shared by two of the most influential books in the world, and the meaning of their stories to the two of us today. Adam, Abraham, Moses, David, and Jesus included. Hass and I learn not only about the other's faith but also more about our own.
Hass Sartawi, Jake Knight
The Consciousness Shift TCS
Humanity is in the midst of a huge shift in the way it sees life, Lisa suggests, and I agree. She calls it an evolutionary leap in consciousness. We talk about what she means, what this new reality means, her life experience and beliefs, and mine.
Lisa Stancati, Jake Knight
Some Conversations with Marc SCM
Marc is an educated, believing Christian man living in the modern world. He is also a singer/ songwriter who lives and performs in the San Francisco Bay Area. He and I talk about life. Though the starting talking point of each episode varies, our conversations tend toward the philosophical, biblical, and practical.
Marc Maynon, Jake Knight
Luke's Perspective, and Ours LPO
Wow! What a story! Daniel and I look at and discuss Jesus' life and teachings as reported in the Book of Luke. We find the twenty-four chapters packed with meaning, life, love, and hope.
Daniel Alexander, Jake Knight

In late November, 2017, I had the chance to catch up with two friends. The three of us connected on a three-way call across nine time zones: Julian Dallmeier was in Spain, Connor Wander in North Carolina, and I was in good old California. The two of them were, and are, neuroscientists in training. We talked about what we were doing, about science, and meaning. They had big news for me: they were going to start a podcast! They asked me to advise them; I happily gave them ideas and support. I had some familiarity with radio broadcasting having myself, for a very brief period of time, hosted an AM radio show in Palm Springs, CA.
Their podcast is called Straight from a Scientist and it is running strong to this day. I encourage you to check it out if you are interested in science in general (the episodes are easily accessible for us non-scientists); if you want to hear about recent science discoveries from the researchers themselves; and/ or you are interested in science as a career field. www.StraightfromaScientist.com
The idea of podcasting took firm hold of me from that first globe-spanning conversation. I decided to have my own show. Which became shows. I asked a few friends to join me on podcasts of our own. First Marc, then Lisa, then Daniel, and then Haas came on board. Each of the four have different, interesting stories; all lead to the same good and useful place. And, as the saying goes, (and is, in fact, always the case) the rest is history.
