This episode of Shamanic Freedom Radio is presented from just behind Varkala beach, Kerala, India; being the furthest roaming roamcast to date.

Mr Lens, in a somewhat blown away, travelled out and jet lagged state; monologues about his experiences and contemplations of travelling, cultural and climatic differences, fascist state airports and anarchist planes, empty seats on aeroplanes, how India couldn’t ban begging because it would be unenforceable, self censorship, new business ideas and many more things at random, laced with a few sounds of India to give it that authentic feel.

Music: Excerpt from Gayatri Mantra by Anuradha Paudwal

SFR 90: Interview with Neil Kramer: Being vs Knowledge
Explicit

This episode starts with Mr Lens in a windy location to add flavour and character to the introduction(!) before going over to the first part of a two part interview with Neil Kramer.

The main narrative of this part is the difference between being and knowledge. Neil argues that there is a division which has had the alternative researchers falling out with each other and bickering. At one end of the spectrum are the people of being - those who have character, personality, humility and a real fascination with being alive. At the other end are the people of 'knowledge' - those who are often self important and cold in their nature whilst coming across as an expert authority not to be questioned.

Neil then voices his opinions on a few SFR narratives such as class background, and other taboo subjects such as whether or not you should judge or generalise.

This chat is not for the faint hearted, the sanitised, the puffy or the wishy washy. However, real people with a healthy balance of humour and cynicism may find this chat profound and hilarious in places.

SFR 89: Roamcast - [Counter]Culture is not [always] your friend

In this episode, recorded mid January 2014 at night in the full moon, Mr Lens looks at how countercultural groups suffer from the same hypocrisy, sanctimony and inconsistency as mainstream culture, and how one can come to the conclusion "Who needs the New World Order with friends like these?" when the alternative to the mainstream creates a culture of amateur psychiatrists and well meaning but somewhat coercive thought policing "enlightened" people.

Before the end Mr Lens mentions that Neil Kramer is very likely to be on the next episode of Shamanic Freedom Radio, and plays a track by Ozric Tentacles from the restored, remastered and re-released Vitamin Enhanced box set, a project which he instigated, and the Ozrics prepared for release.

In this episode, Mr Lens goes into the great outdoors, and puts his Bitcoin evangelist head on, describing how Bitcoin works, and the advantages/disadvantages getting into the bitcoin econimy in the hope of 'turning people on' to something which could be as potentially groundbreaking as LSD or the internet itself.

Further ponderings are about alienation and integration in work and social situations, and the controversial question - is Russell Brand kosher?

Shamanic Freedom Radio ep 85 - Fraser Clarke's 'Monkey's trip' talk remastered.

In this episode, Mr Lens plays a talk entitled Monkey's Trip by the late Fraser Clark of Megatripolis fame, originally featured on Lorenzo's Psychedelic Salon podcast in October 2005.

However the original recording was a lo fi tape recording on a podcast with a low sample rate, and Mr Lens couldn't resist a cleanup job, especially as this is such a significant talk by one of the psychedelic community's most original thinkers.

Shamanic Freedom Radio Ep 84: Sport, War and News - The unholy trinity

In this episode Mr Lens discusses three pieces of old paradigm cultural furniture which keep the world as it is - namely sport, war and news.

Sport is presented as a way of keeping everyone knowing their place in society, keeping people in that fiercely competitive state. War tackled as a state of human malady at every level from arguing over "not doing the washing up" to nations bombing each other. And news as a malevolent form of programming which makes grown ups say impulsively "Ssshh! The news is on!".

The podcast ends with a few minutes of Robert Anton Wilson.
