Glorious galloping gratitude for Michael Garfield

The recent episode with Zak Stein shines, exemplifying excellence in meta-modern emergence. Revel in the hyper-articulations!

Portal found

I stumbled across this podcast by chance and I don’t think it was really an accident ✨. MG has a way of making very forward thinking ideas understandable and relatable to everyone. Beautiful mind, well spoken, interesting topics! Highly recommend to anyone who likes to think big. So thankful I found it! 💜🙏🏽💜

Just 10 minutes

First off, the preceding reviews are spot on and I can only offer my full support of their adoration and gratefulness expressed for this podcast. Some great talks on genetics, time, music, biology, and somehow always fractals. Show notes are impressively detailed, but makes sense considering how many tangents and topics are explored, and yet the conversation always finds itself back on track. That being said, go find an episode on our favorite topic and listen now. Otherwise, read on:

As to the title of my review, this show is so densely packed with information that I find myself listening in 10 minute chunks just so I can digest and make notes of my own. Michael is thoroughly adept at integrating and maintaining highly interesting and engaging conversation with such a wide variety of scholars of various fields that it blows my mind. He does what my mind aspires to, to see the whole system in motion from the widest point of view possible, and yet stay stay grounded with scientific intelligence and rigorous philosophy.

To end, I can’t be as smart or silver tongued as Michael Garfield, but thank god he can be, and for the work he is doing.
