Jason and Matt Abbott chat with Jean Scheffler. Jean is the author of The Sugar House, a book that takes the reader back to the roaring 20’s in the IGC’s backyard of Detroit, MI.

IGC 30 – Michael Sherlock

Episode 30

Jason Abbott is joined by Michael Sherlock. Michael is the author of the “I am Christ” series. The sole focus of this three volume series is to take a deep look at the belief system which underscores the entire Western world, namely, Judeo-Christianity. Even though Michael is described as an atheist, he investigates all possibilities and thought processes leading to how humans can be manipulated by belief systems for usually more sinister reasons. From his investigations into the history of the church and the entire religion of Christianity, he has come to the conclusion that, worse than the insane fictions contained within these ancient manuscripts, lies a belief system which has put a large portion of our species to sleep within the comfort of ill-gotten and now thoroughly debunked beliefs. Whatever your current beliefs are, this conversation will be sure to spark ideas within.

IGC 27 (Anniversary Ep.) – Dennis McKenna / Brad Burge

1-episode27

It’s been one year now since the IGC Podcast pilot. We started off in search of interesting conversations and ideas, and what an experience it’s been so far! Many thanks going out to the Co-Hosts and Guests that made this happen, and of course the listeners for tuning in and support.

Jason Abbott is joined again by Brad Burge of MAPS. It was a real treat to welcome Dennis McKenna to this 2 hr. special podcast. Dennis is a world renowned ethno-botanist who helped change the landscape of altered and expanded states of consciousness in the world. His new book “The Brotherhood of the Screaming Abyss” chronicles his life and adventures with his brother Terrence McKenna. We catch up with Brad on the newest studies with MAPS (Multidisciplinary Association of Psychedelic Studies) on MDMA and PTSD, and Dennis talks about The Heffter Institute and their studies on psilocybin. We cover a preview of The Brotherhood of the Screaming Abyss, and altered states of consciousness in general. We also get into the depths of deep plant knowledge, and how we are basically biochemical engines making our way through the world.

Our intro music is brought to you by Secrets and can be found on Soundcloud. Our featured exit music is “Star Bucks” from Decap and Brady Watt.
