||ExplicitFryderyk Kwiatkowski on Decoding Dark City, The Matrix & Other Gnostic Movies||The Gnostic message has translated extremely well to the medium of film, specifically in the genre of Hollywood science fiction — as both concepts speculate on possible realities, the nature of consciousness, and the destiny of humanity in an...||6/13/2017||Free||View in iTunes|

||ExplicitDarren Lorente Bull on Spiritual Freemasonry||The membership and impact of Freemasonry seem to dwindle.

||ExplicitTom Harpur on Saving Christianity||The Abrahamic faiths are on a collision course. Churches are empty across the Western World.

||ExplicitTim Freke on a Modern Gnostic View on the Purpose of Life||The grand religious stories that gave meaning to life and death in the past have crumbled under skeptical scrutiny.

||ExplicitScott Smith on the Archons and the Nature of Good & Evil||The archonic influence on the cosmos is widely attested by Gnostics, past and present.

||ExplicitRobert Price on Finding the Demiurge in the Bible||The volcanic personality of the Demiurge in the Old Testament is no secret, and we cover much of it.

||ExplicitSean Martin on Dualism, Syncretism, Mysticism & Other Gnostic Theologies||Throughout history the Gnostics were accused of being dualists: those who saw the universe and mankind itself split between light and darkness, body and spirit.

||ExplicitTim Lambert on Alchemical Secrets in the Bible, Fairy Tales & Plato’s Works||We take an alchemical examination of several classic texts in a search for hidden layers of meaning.

||ExplicitJustin Bass on Christ's Descent Into the Underworld||An accepted but misunderstood Christian theology is Christ’s descent into the underworld.

||ExplicitPatrice Chaplin on The Holy Grail and Mystic Portals||Dan Brown and the other Grail hunters got it all wrong.

||ExplicitMoe Bedard on Being a Gnostic Warrior||The Gnostic approach makes perfect sense in a world of crumbling institutions and where all of reality seems like fake news.

||ExplicitRichard Smoley on the Gnostic Legacy on History||The reality is that without the Gnostic spark we might have never had the Renaissance.

||ExplicitAngry Gay Pope on the Fall and Rise of Scientology||Our Holiday Special! And in a not-so odd way, Scientology mirrors the materialistic rave that is the Holiday Season, as well as the American Dream gone mad.

||ExplicitBrendan Myers on Finding Gnosis in Loneliness and Contemplation||Our extroverted society has vilified and made humanity incapable of dealing with the important state of being called loneliness.

||ExplicitScott Smith on Gnosticism and Daily Life in the 21st Century||Despite its ancient pedigree and phantasm presence, Gnosticism can be applied to our modern times, even in everyday life.

||ExplicitArthur Versluis on Gnosticism as a Viable Political Movement||Modern politics has become paralyzed in a world of harsh polarities and mirror-maze media.

A little short, but it is a superb production on some sadly obscure subjects.
Great, thought provoking interviews.
But those intros are just painful to listen to.
20 min intro . . .
I got extremely tired of the opening intro to the Kripal interview (lame jokes + movie out-takes) while fast forwarding my thumb slipped and the mp3 started over - so I opened the latest episode with Audible and cut out the first 20 minutes or so and saved it so the podcast starts with the interview - we'll see how it goes from there. And then, slowly, it dawned on me - all the lame jokes and sound bytes were just a suble way of teaching me a Gnostic lesson in patience and how to take matters in my own hands and cut out some of the boring parts of life . . . bravo!
