Since year 2000, I had a recurring thought to host a live talk show featuring various artists, thinkers and teachers in the community. At the time, I knew very few people but the idea was enticing!
Over the years, I’ve become friends and peers with many brilliant souls so I’ve promoted their works through my newsletter and my former events list.
However, the “talk show” format still appealed so in summer 2008, I started collaborating with someone to develop this talk show project into a video series called “Alchemy of Passion” for webcast. Alas, other circumstances took priority in his life and we had to shelve it.
In late 2008, I hosted 2 episodes of “Alchemy of Passion” on Conscious Living Radio at the invitation of Andrew Rezmer. My featured guests were: Joel Bellenson (geneticist, futurist, entrepreneur), Sobey Wing (nexialist, neotribalist and catalyst), Jeet-Kei Leung (multi-disciplinary artist, culture-crafter & visionary explorer), Dolly Hopkins (conceptualist, innovator, and artistic advisor) and Mitch Anderson (geologist, activist, writer, entrepreneur, musician). These are all people that I admire greatly for their incredible work in the community here and beyond. I really appreciated the experience but radio was not the right venue so I focused on other projects.
Then, in January 2012, I host a live “talk show” event “Evolution of Passion” featuring the brilliant Joel Bellenson as my guest. A few days later, I was off on my travels to India and continued filming videos on the road that I would name: the Follow Your Fetish series!
