    1. So happy that you’re enjoying the show. My IT person and I are working on developing an email subscription option for people who want to subscribe, which should hopefully be available in the near future. In the meantime you can subscribe the RSS feed through WordPress. Of course, you can also subscribe to the podcast through the podcasting platforms of Apple, Google or Sticher.

    I very much enjoyed this conversation. I recently heard of the dream machine designed by Brion Gysin and wonder if these lights are similar. Anyhow thank you for the great podcast.

    1. I have not heard of the dream machine but I’ll check it out. Thanks for mentioning it.
