Philthy Talk #3: Tyler Chandler & Nick Meyers (Dosed)

Philthy Talk #3: Tyler Chandler & Nick Meyers (Dosed)

September 5, 2019

Overview

For this episode Phil talks over the phone with the makers of a new documentary called Dosed, which follows the journey of an opioid addict, Adrianne, as she recovers from trauma & addiction thru psychedelic therapy using magic mushrooms and iboga. They discuss the challenges of finding Adrianne treatment, and the effectiveness of psychedelics in helping their friend deal with heavy psychological & physical issues. Eventually the film crew and Adreanna found themselves deep inside an underground culture long neglected by mainstream medical institutions - just in the nick of time.

Dosed will be screened in Billings, MT as part of the Montana International Film Festival on Friday 9/20 at Arthouse Cinema and Pub. 4:30-6:00pm. Come hang out!

Mario Miner is one cool dude. He makes guitar amps out of ammo cans, grenade canisters & cow skulls, and he makes some rad distortion pedals. And he has a band that kicks ass!

They also talk about The Reddmen, the blues, substance abuse, and they mess around with some of Mario's homemade music gear.

Waste Books Ep. 14 - Sex at Dawn

Waste Books Ep. 14 - Sex at Dawn

April 22, 2019

Join us this month as we discuss Chris Ryan and Cacilda Jethá's nonfiction book about prehistoric human sexuality, Sex at Dawn!

Overview

If you're looking for a comfortable read, you're likely not going to find it here. The authors of this book pull no punches as they undertake a big task: undermining what they call the "standard narrative of human sexuality," which they see as potentially very harmful to humans given how we likely evolved and behaved for hundreds of thousands of years. 

We are all familiar with the standard narrative, having been raised in a culture that saturates our existence with love songs, rom-coms, and countless other forms of propaganda that seem to insist that the fundamental condition of human sexuality is heartbreak. Under the standard narrative, we must always be on guard for the two-timing dude or the gold-digging lady, arguably a microcosm of a larger scarcity culture.

Indeed, the authors trace our issues back to what seems to be the root of many of our problems: the agricultural revolution. Before this time, humans didn't have a mechanism for building capital - they just followed game animals or gathered food as needed. In other words, after hundreds of thousands of years existing without substantial property, we found ourselves thrust into a brave new world subject to the laws of capital. Until then we had no reason to keep track of lineage and keep capital "in the family." In this way, marriage and monogamy seem to play a vital role in the dynamics of capitalism, and not necessarily human nature.

Through writing both witty and delightfully chatty, Ryan and Jetha root out fundaments of mainstream thought around human sexuality and open space for new conversation where it seems much needed.

-Phil

Notes

Music by the Bad Math Band with their track "Chum Dumplins."
