Michael Garfield is a multi-media artist, musician, podcaster, futurist, former paleontologist and all around brilliant human. I have been a huge fan of Michael's work for a while specifically his ultra-inspiring, mind bending podcast Future Fossils
so I was delighted to have our paths cross via many mutual friends and of course some delightful synchronicity. This conversation occurred literally a full year ago, last September, a very different time in the world but I think the topics we touch are as potent as ever. We dove SUPER deep and given this was our first conversation using voices and eyeballs there is that familiar vibration that I often talk about occuring, the "friendship being born" energy. Since this was a decidedly "co-broadcast" we sort of interview each other to some degree but the convo is so free flowing I don't think it even qualifies as an interview for either of us. We talk about touring vs being at home modes, working in different mediums & the scorn that can come along with it, tripping indoors vs outdoors, being in relationship as an obsessive artist type, Michael's first dance with fatherhood, therapy, the multiplicity of self, "real job" stable life, synchronicity generators and so much more. I hope you dig it. In related news, Michael and I are presenting a talk together for The Annual Psilocybin Summit
this sunday, September 20th (5 day event 17th-21st) The lineup for this thing is stacked to the gils with amazing folks like Paul Stammets, Francoise Bourzat, Bia Labate, Ayanna Iyi, Dennis Mckenna and a bajillion more.
Our talk's theme is "Psilocybin, Synchronicity & High Strangeness
: A dive into these phenomena and the process of using curiosity & creativity in order to integrate challenging psilocybin experiences."
