Kmo uses his sultry voice to great effect. He covered topics ignored by mainstream media. Great content!
Great discussions, always, with solid host
I am disappointed in myself for not reviewing before now. I've been listening off and on to KMO's podcasts for years. He rarely disappoints. I originally came for the consciousness alteration stuff, but ended up learning something about community, growing food, and so on, as well. Much appreciation to you, KMO! I've never been in a position to help out very much financially. Maybe one day soon! You're a great voice out there!
The C stands for Consciousness
KMO is a great interviewer, a thoughtful host, and an all around great guy. Important topics about the future of human development and the realistic challenges we face are presented with a calm and balanced perspective. Engage with big ideas and you’ll leave with something valuable. Highest recommendation.
