This is so brilliant thank you. I listened to this just when I needed it, exactly when I needed it as I have a lot of subconscious blockages I’ve realised just in this last week in trying to get a strong disciplined practise regime going for my music. I’ve been battling with that for so long yet everything else around me works and I continue moving forward but NOT to my ultimate true potential and leaves me without confidence, the confidence that I should have, but only through practise/training. I am disciplined in every other aspect of my life apart from practising the piano/my songs and that’s my profession! It’s avoidance because I know how great I can be and for some crazy reason that scares meN? This resonates so strongly thank you SO much for your brilliant inspiring podcasts Darin. I am grateful for you. Jasmine c

Darin, I can't thank you enough for speaking on this topic for your Fatal Conveniences series. I 100% agree with you on avoiding these body scanners! I knew enough that it was some form of radiation and that it's the cumulative effect of this radiation that's harmful on our bodies. I have and will never, like you, go through one of these machines. I always OPT OUT and get the same eye roll...and then have to wait for a female TSA agent to do my pat down, but totally worth it. We have to be our own advocates and stand up for our own health and safety. Thank you again 🙏

It's sad to see someone on this show that spits bullshit about the environment while condoning the most extreme forms of animal abuse.

As always, your podcasts are insightful and inspiring. I come from a broken tribe and can relate to the need for a stronger community, even if that means crossing our longstanding indigenous boundaries to gain one big voice! Thanks for sharing Sadhguru’s wisdom with us!

Just wanted to say love the show! It's ridiculous how many harmful products are out there and sold like a pot of gold. Would love to get your app but noticed it's only on the apple app store any chance you will support android?

The Stephen Brooks episode this week was terrific! His community is “life goals” and I hope that some of the practices that he promotes for sustainability of our planet can be replicated on a day global...scale. Thanks for sharing this great information, Darin Olien!

Natural herbs have cured so many illness that drugs and injection can’t cure. I've seen the great importance of natural herbs and the wonderful work they have done in people's lives. i read people's testimonies online on how they were cured of HERPES, HIV, diabetics etc by Dr Edes herbal medicine, so i decided to contact the doctor because i know nature has the power to heal anything. I was diagnosed with Herpes for the past 3 years but Dr Edes cured me with his herbs and i referred my aunt and her husband to him immediately because they were both suffering from Herpes but to God be the glory, they were cured too .I know is hard to believe but am a living testimony. There is no harm trying herbs, Thanks. Write him on WhatsApp on +2348151937428. @dr_edes_remedies deals with (1)Alzheimer virus (2)Cancer (3)HIV (4)Herpes (5)Genital warts (6)ALS (7)Virginal infection (8)HPV (9)Hepatitis (10)Asthma Email him on
