The C-Realm is a weekly, interview-based program which features discussions on topics ranging from a possible technological singularity, to entheogenic exploration, the re-localization of community and agriculture, and the competing narratives by which we define ourselves and navigate our world.

Don't miss this one
This is one of the top 3 podcasts on the net in my opinion. Too important to miss. Listen and learn.
Do You Sense the Cognitive Dissonance of "Modern Life"?
You are not alone.
The subjects and conversations on the C-Realm are among the most important I have found anywhere. Really, these are the ideas that need to be dealt with and KMO is a natural and brilliant conversationalist, adept at distilling and conveying them. He LISTENS to his guests and engages them in conversations they obviously enjoy, usually. Not one to suffer a fool, neither is he one to embarrass or berate them. It's really good stuff and one of my favorite hours of the week.
I always learn something new with KMO. A few of the topics are way off my usual radar. I stuck with the episodes that didn't initially interest me and I'm better for it. KMO's story is amazing, too, and he gets some amazing guests.
