Inspiring Naturalism podcast

by Connie Barlow and Michael Dowd · · · · 1 subscribers

Hosts Connie Barlow and Michael Dowd interview scientists, scholars, educators, and other leaders helping to evolve our culture toward an inspiring, naturalistic understanding of life, the universe, and the human condition.

Loyal Rue, Michael Dowd, and Connie Barlow gather outdoors at Loyal's cabin in Iowa to share what too few are willing to discuss: a worldview shift that precludes the possibility of a bright future for our civilization. A recurrent theme is the tension between, what Rue calls, " truth and comfort " when discussing with others the ecological crisis and its implications for humanity. Watch this conversation in VIDEO format on youtube. Theme song "Poetry of Reality" courtesy Symphony of Science.
