On the second Evolver Podcast we ponder the questions, "Can one percent of the world's population become Evolvers within two years?", "What’s really going on with Nostradamus?" and, "What's the inside scoop behind the hugely successful Evolver Long Beach gatherings?" Listen and find out!
In this episode of Evolver the Podcast we have taken a new approach to podcasting. Evolver is about community, so we decided that we should do our podcast as a community. We start this episode with me interviewing Jennifer Palmer, where we talk about some amazing things evolver has going on and a little bit of what we have planned for the future. Jennifer is the Community Director of Evolver as well as a writer, DJ, and philosopher who goes by the name TRUE out on the internet. In the future Jennifer will be joining us as an Interviewer.
Then we checked in with one of our front runners in creating community Tony Damico, who is the regional coordinator of Evolver Long Beach. And a new addition to the podcast is Jonathan Talat Phillips who will be conducting interviews with different key figures of the movement in each episode. Jonathan is one of the co-founders of Evolver, a Reiki Master, an initiate of the International Sufi Order, and founder of the NY Gnostics. In this episode he interviewed Richard Smoley, who has recently re-released his book “The Essential Nostradamus”. Richard is one of the world’s most distinguished authorities on the mystical and esoteric teachings of Western civilization. I'm also starting a project of my own with this Podcast and I need the communities help with it. One thing I’ve always believed is that socially conscious people, that pay attention to their health, their impact on the environment around them, and the way they live their lives are usually partaking in something they know they shouldn’t. Such as driving their car, eating GMO’s, shopping at Walmart, etc..I know it can be hard to just stop doing all of these things all at once, I don’t expect that anyone should. I do things I know aren’t good for me or the environment. So I had an idea inspired by the film No Impact Man. It’s about a man and his wife and daughter reducing their carbon foot print to nothing for a year. They didn’t stop doing everything from day one; they phased it over the first six months. So the project I’m starting is every time I do an episode I’m phasing something out. I’m starting with an easy one, no more buying or using single serving drinks. This includes Odwalla juices, Bottled water, natural sodas, basically anything that comes in a single serving container. Where I’m asking for the communities help is I want you guys to join me. I also would like it if each time you guys phase something out you email me about it, so I can see what sort of an impact we are making as a community and let everyone know about it with each episode. I also would love the emails so I have ideas on different things I could phase out.
I’m very happy with the way this episode turned out, and all the amazing things that Evolver has going on. I hope you all enjoy the episode very much and Ilove to hear your feedback so we can continue to evolve the podcast into something more. So please don’t hesitate to contact me. You can do so by emailing email@example.com,messaging me on Facebook as Evolver Sacramento, or just messaging me on Evolver as Chris Hopkins.
I hope to hear from you guys soon.
