Time to “Clear the Air”

Aired Tuesday, 20 August 2019, 5:00 PM EST / 2:00 PM PST

Interview with Health Activist and EMF Expert Michael LeVesque

“Some people say fasting is good for our health, but I say everything is already too fast. So I recommend slowing instead.” — Swami Beyondananda

Ready or not, 5G is here.

5G stands for “fifth generation cellular technology” which promises to deliver data rates that are 10 to 100 times faster than current 4G. Not only does this mean much faster download rates, but 5G will also enable new technologies like self-driving cars and augmented reality. Mobile devices will be able to send and receive information in less than one-thousandth of a second, appearing instantaneous to the user.

Wow. Faster internet, faster downloads on our smart phones … Fast, fast, fast.

Well … not so fast, say some concerned citizens and scientists. As with cell phones, the radiation from this 5G technology is being linked to higher cancer rates. The cell phone providers and mainstream media insist all is safe, and there is no problem. Are they correct? Or is this just another issue where those with much to gain are railroading an untested technology?

Our guest this week Michael LeVesque, is a long-time health advocate, who opened his first health food store in Cortez, Colorado nearly fifty years ago. In 1982, he opened Vitamin Express, running five stores for 36 years. He is the author of the best-selling “BIG Vitamin Dictionary,” and has spent the past several years studying wireless technology and the “human voltage system”. Michael is a self-taught expert on EMF (electromagnetic field) radiation and their impact on the human body, and is the owner of Ray Guard Protect, a device to protect against EMF exposure.

So … is the cause for concern regarding 5G for real? Or is it just a bunch of conspiracy theorist, anti-science alarmists raining on the parade? Or something somewhere in between?

If you’ve been hearing about 5G, and want to “clear the air” please tune in this Tuesday, August 20th at 2 pm PT / 5 pm ET. http://omtimes.com/iom/shows/wiki-politiki-radio-show/

Karen and Henry Kimsey-House – Co-Active Leadership: Activating the Leadership of All for the Benefit of All

Aired Tuesday, 6 August 2019, 5:00 PM EST / 2:00 PM PST

Interview with Karen and Henry Kimsey-House, Co-Founders of Co-Active Leadership and Co-Active Coaching

“It’s time for we the people to follow our hearts and lead our leaders.” — Swami Beyondananda

For most of us when we think of “leadership” – unless we identify as a “leader” – generally think of somebody else out there. And now at a time when dissatisfaction with our “leaders” is at an all-time high, we might consider that leadership must now evolve to activating many different varieties of leadership talents.

Our guests on Wiki Politiki this week, Karen and Henry Kimsey-House, have spent the past three decades coaching and teaching leadership that “harnesses the possibility of many rather than relying on the power of one.”

They write:

“Top-down, one-dimensional leadership models are hopelessly outmoded in today’s rapidly changing world, and they waste the leadership ability that is present throughout an organization. This revolutionary five-dimensional approach recognizes that leadership has to be fluid and flexible and that the roles leaders and followers play must shift to suit the situation. Co-Active Leadership invites all of us to share our expertise and allows collaborative solutions to emerge that would never have been possible otherwise.”

One of the first professional coaches in the 1980s and the co-founder and lead designer of Co-Active Training Institute’s provocative, experiential learning programs, Henry Kimsey-House is also the co-author of Co-Active Coaching and Co-Active Leadership. An actor since age 9, Henry honed his insights into human emotion and the narrative process through classical theatrical training and years of stage, television, and film experience. With deep conviction that education should be driven by immersive, contextually based learning and not dry information dumps, Henry is committed to creating richly engaging and transformative learning environments where retention approaches 80% rather than the traditional 20%.

One of the earliest recognized luminaries in the coaching profession, Karen Kimsey-House co-founded Co-Active Training Institute in 1992 with Laura Whitworth and her future husband, Henry. Together, they co-created the Co-Active philosophy of relationship that informs CTI’s world-renowned coaching and leadership programs. Karen is also the co-author of Co-Active Coaching and Co-Active Leadership. A successful entrepreneur, Karen founded and directed the Learning Annex San Francisco adult education program in 1986 and grew it into one of the most admired programs under the national Learning Annex brand.

If you’re curious about how new forms of collaboration using diverse leadership styles can impact the world at large and the world “at small”, please tune in this Tuesday, August 6th at 2 pm PT / 5 pm ET. http://omtimes.com/iom/shows/wiki-politiki-radio-show/

Stephanie James – Contribution and Consciousness: How to Change Our Inner World So We Can Change the Outer One

Aired Tuesday, 30 July 2019, 5:00 PM EST / 2:00 PM PST

Interview with Stephanie James, Author, Psychotherapist and Host of “The Spark” Radio Show and Podcast

“The best way to deal with the human condition is to recondition our inhuman conditioning.” — Swami Beyondananda

To many Americans, the 2016 election was a traumatic event.

The first gathering I attended that November was at a church in San Jose, where Mexican Americans expressed fearful concern about the disruption in their community, and the potential danger of being singled out and marginalized. Others – people of color, the LGBT community, women, those concerned about climate change – have seen some of their worst fears realized over the past two years. Beginning with the women’s march in January 2017, large numbers of people have been mobilized against Trumpism – and yet, there is still a feeling of powerlessness and despair.

Although resisting Trump seems “irresistible”, the pushing against seems to make him bigger and more powerful, as he and his ilk feed upon even the most negative publicity. The question is, how do we turn this rightful concern into generative action TOWARDS the future we want, and not just away from what we don’t want? How do we make a positive, healthy, helpful contribution to our world in these times of crisis, danger, and chaos?

Our guest this week Stephanie James, a therapist who has helped countless individuals heal from their personal trauma, has some exciting ideas for how we can continue to heal our personal issues … AND … use those insights and practices to shift “powerless and reactive” to “powerful and proactive”. That way, instead of buying into the fear-based narratives that put us in our “reptile brain”, feed the love-based ones that put us in the neo-cortex so we can be more creative, more present in our own lives, and consequently more helpful to others.

Stephanie James is a psychotherapist, public speaker, and published author with nearly 30 years experience in the mental health field. Nominated for Fort Collins (CO) Woman of The Year in 2014 and a graduate of Colorado State University and the University of Denver, Stephanie is committed to help others achieve their best lives and to become the best versions of themselves.

She has had vast experience in working with people of all ages and backgrounds – children and adolescents, adults and couples, as well as developmentally-disabled and seriously mentally ill individuals – and has a passionate mission to bring as much love and healing to the world as possible. She has been able to share her mission and passion with a wider audience on her weekly radio show and podcast, The Spark with Stephanie James; broadcast in 48 different countries Wednesday nights, 7:00 MST on Noco.fm and dropped as a podcast the following morning on thesparkpod.com and available on all podcast platforms.

She is the originator and host of The Spark Summit 2019, a summit integrating wisdom from thought leaders, national bestselling authors, and luminaries in psychology, science, and spirituality. The Spark summit offers and inspirational, interactive and transformational experience that will open people’s hearts, empower their lives, and awaken their inseparable connection with all of humanity.

If you’re ready to be genuinely heartened and empowered despite a “shituation” that many find disheartening and disempowering, please tune in this Tuesday, July 30th at 2 pm PT / 5 pm ET. http://omtimes.com/iom/shows/wiki-politiki-radio-show/

Ellen Brown – Banks For People Is NOT An Oxymoron!

Aired Tuesday, 23 July 2019, 5:00 PM EST / 2:00 PM PST

Shifting Financial Power From Wall Street to Main Street

Interview with Ellen Brown, Author of “Banking On the People: Democratizing Money In the Digital Age”

“I don’t know about you, but I am nostalgic for the good old days, when PEOPLE robbed BANKS.” — Swami Beyondananda

Economics, and particularly the banking industry and monetary policy seems to be a mysterious black box to most people – our guest this week, Ellen Brown, characterizes it as a “sausage factory.” She is obviously referring to the quote attributed to Otto von Bismarck: “Laws are like sausages. You should never see them made.”

In other words, if we actually understood how and why banks do what they do, and how monetary policy is made – we’d never “swallow it”. Ellen Brown, author of the classic “Web of Debt,” a follow up book, “The Public Bank Solution”, and her latest in the trilogy, “Banking On the People: Democratizing Money In the Digital Age”, sprays the issue with “demystifier” and offers thoughtful, breakthrough solutions that will shift financial power and wellbeing from Wall Street to Main Street.

When I traveled to Washington, D.C. a week or two after the 2008 election, there was literally dancing in the streets. The mood felt like the liberation of Paris or the fall of the Berlin Wall.

But a lad and a lack. For many complex reasons, Obama bailed out Wall Street but not Main Street, and in the past decade we’ve come to recognize that the financial institutions that were “too big to fail” were not too big to fail the American people. As a result, the American middle class seems to have gone the way of the typewriter and slide rule, as the gap between rich and poor actually grew during the Obama administration. Bank loans for new businesses have been replaced with credit card debt that has further impoverished local enterprise, while the mega-banks continue to make mega-profits.

This week’s guest Ellen Brown is the founder of the Public Banking Institute and the author of a dozen books and hundreds of articles. She developed her research skills as an attorney practicing civil litigation in Los Angeles. In the best-selling “Web of Debt”, she turned those skills to an analysis of the Federal Reserve and “the money trust,” showing how this private cartel has usurped the power to create money from the people themselves and how we the people can get it back.

She developed an interest in the developing world and its problems while living abroad for eleven years in Kenya, Honduras, Guatemala and Nicaragua. She returned to practicing law when she was asked to join the legal team of a popular Tijuana healer with an innovative cancer therapy, who was targeted by the chemotherapy industry in the 1990s. That experience produced her book “Forbidden Medicine”, which traces the suppression of natural health treatments to the same corrupting influences that have captured the money system. She also co-authored the bestselling “Nature’s Pharmacy”, which has sold 285,000 copies.

Today most of our money is created, not by governments, but by banks when they make loans. “Banking On the People” takes the reader step by step through the sausage factory of modern money creation, explores improvements made possible by advances in digital technology, and proposes upgrades that could transform our outmoded nineteenth century system into one that is democratic, sustainable, and serves the needs of the twenty-first century.

If you’d like a simple understanding of a complex financial “shituation” along with outside-the-box and inside-the-box functional solutions, please tune in this Tuesday, July 23rd at 2 pm PT / 5 pm ET. http://omtimes.com/iom/shows/wiki-politiki-radio-show/

Interview with Connie Baxter Marlow and Andrew Cameron Bailey, Researchers and Makers of the Film “Seeds of Freedom”

“Instead of pulling apart in a tug-of-war, we need to pull together in a tug of peace.” — Swami Beyondananda

My favorite pleasantly provocative and curiosity-inducing question is … “Did you know?”

Did you know … that there were fifty-four years of peace and friendship between the Mayflower Pilgrims and the Wampanoag Indians in Plymouth Colony between 1621 and 1675?

You didn’t? Neither did I until I met this week’s guests Connie Baxter Marlow and Andrew Cameron Bailey some years ago, and they told me the inspiring story of how visionary leaders of two radically different cultures met and worked together to maintain an inter-cultural exchange that became what Bailey and Marlow call the “First Great Synthesis” between Europeans and American Indians. While many – including my own book Spontaneous Evolution credit the Iroquois Nation with the ideals and structures of governance that inspired our Constitution – Marlow and Cameron offer compelling evidence that many of these “seeds of freedom” came from the Pilgrims themselves.

Connie Baxter Marlow is a descendant of Mayflower Pilgrims John Alden and Priscilla Mullins, known as America’s First Couple, made famous by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s poem. Her great-great-grandfather James Phinney Baxter, a pre-eminent historian of early New England, was President of the New England Historical Genealogical Society for 20 years. Connie brings a unique perspective to her ancestors’ dreams for humanity, in that she has spent 30 years in close association with visionary Native American elders throughout the United States and Mexico, and has been creating forums for them to share their understanding of the nature of the Universe for over 20 years.

Andrew Cameron Bailey calls himself a “latter-day pilgrim.” He sailed across the Atlantic and arrived in America on Thanksgiving Day, 1969. He was born in England and grew up in South Africa amongst the Zulus, holds degrees in science, English and social anthropology, and was a chemistry professor before emigrating to the United States. After meeting Connie in 2003 he became disturbed at the level of misinformation in the American psyche surrounding the settling of New England, and the ongoing deprecation and denigration of the Pilgrims and the Puritans in present-day America. Andrew is the author of the 21st Century historical mystery novel/screenplay “The Mayflower Revelations,” that sets the historical record straight in an entertaining, enlightening and inspiring way.

It’s “One Mind” Over All Matters

Interview with Dr. Larry Dossey, Author of “One Mind: How Our Individual Mind is Part of a Greater Consciousness and Why it Matters”

“Sadly, the biggest threat to the planetary eco-system is the human ego-system.” — Swami Beyondananda

There is nothing wrong with the human ego. Who would we be without an ego? Nobody, that’s who!

But … what if in addition to being “somebody” we were also “everybody”? What if we were connected in ways that seem outlandish to the ordinary mind? What if, in fact, there was no such thing as the “ordinary mind” and that we were all part of one big “extraordinary mind”?

Our guest this week, Dr. Larry Dossey, has been a pioneer in complementary and alternative medicine. He has written books that offer both empirical and anecdotal evidence of the healing power of prayer, and his latest book offers the best antidote yet to the unbalanced “individualism” that has woven us dangerously outside the web of life.

As to what this metaphysical issue has to do with healing the body politic, Larry says: “Only by realizing, at the deepest emotional level, our connections with one another and the Earth itself can we summon the courage necessary to make the tough choices that are required in order to survive. So, this book is also about staying alive — saving the Earth and our own skins.”

Dr. Larry Dossey has long been recognized as influential advocate of the role of the mind in health and the role of spirituality in healthcare. A graduate of University of Texas and Southwestern Medical School in Dallas, he also served as a battalion surgeon in Vietnam, and Chief of Staff of Medical City Dallas Hospital. The author of nine books and numerous articles, Dr. Dossey is the former Executive Editor of the peer-reviewed journal Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine, the most widely subscribed-to journal in its field. In his 1989 book Recovering the Soul, he introduced the concept of “nonlocal mind” — mind unconfined to the brain and body, mind spread infinitely throughout space and time. Since then, “nonlocal mind” has been adopted by many leading scientists as an emerging image of consciousness. He is also the author of Healing Words : The Power of Prayer and the Practice of Medicine as well as Prayer is Good Medicine : How to Reap the Healing Benefits of Prayer, pioneering and controversial books about the effect of mind on medicine.

While mainstream science – in its unwillingness to even look at phenomena it can’t explain through current knowledge – has resisted Dr. Dossey’s idea, evidence from as far afield as quantum physics seems to support his view of “one mind”.

Slavery, the “Doctrine of Discovery” and America’s Gun Culture

Interview with Thom Hartmann, Radio Host and Author of “The Hidden History of Guns and the Second Amendment”

“Those who fail to learn the lessons of history condemn THE REST OF US to repeat it.” — Swami Beyondananda

Back in the 1960s, black power activist H. Rap Brown famously proclaimed, “violence is as American as cherry pie.” This week’s guest on Wiki Politiki, Thom Hartmann, shows us how and why this is true, so true.

At a time when the gun issue in the United States is front-and-center, and two competing narratives contradict each other, Thom Hartmann – a political “uncommontator” and contextualizer extraordinaire has sprayed the issue with “de-mystifier” in his latest book, “The Hidden History of Guns and the Second Amendment”.

Guns were part of our political legacy since the day Columbus landed, and since the first slaves were bought to the new world from Africa. As part of the “doctrine of discovery” (https://wikipolitiki.com/revealing-and-revoking-the-doctrine-of-discovery-from-domination-to-reverence/), the conquistadors were given carte blanche by Pope Alexander to kill, rape, exploit and plunder non-Christian people who were deemed less than human. In his second visit to Hispaniola, Columbus made 1,600 local villagers slaves at the point of a gun. In 1992, historian David Stannard estimated that some 100 million Native peoples had been killed through murder, disease and starvation since they had been “discovered”.

Likewise, as Thom points out in great detail, guns were used – arming whites and disarming blacks – to guard against slave rebellions, and then after the Civil War, to take power away from blacks and restore white supremacy. In modern times, when Obama was elected in 2008, there was a run on ammunition, as the rumor spread that this black man was going to take away the white man’s guns.

Join us for a lively conversation that unwraps and unravels America’s love affair with guns, and how we’ve become armed and dangerous – to ourselves, mostly. Thom also has some practical and uncommonly commonsensical solutions that bring clarity out of obfuscation.

For those who don’t know Thom Hartmann, he is a lifelong learner and wise teacher, whose books range from fossil fuels (“The Last Hours of Ancient Sunlight”) to Thomas Jefferson and the founders of America, to “attention deficit disorder”. He is a progressive national and internationally syndicated talk show host. Talkers magazine named him America’s most important progressive host and has named his show one of the top ten talk radio shows in the country every year for over a decade. A four-time recipient of the Project Censored Award, Hartmann is also a New York Times bestselling author of twenty-four books, translated into multiple languages.

Our conversation will touch on many issues – including how to “overgrow” the influence of money in politics, and how best to frame the gun issue so that we the people can successfully “fire the first Big Shot” in 2020.

How the Baghvad Gita Can Turn Our World Outside In

Interview with Isaac Bentwich, M.D. Author of “Gita: A Timeless Guide for Our Times”

“Ancient wisdom never gets old.” — Swami Beyondananda

The Bible … the Koran … the I Ching … for millennia scholars have gone through these “fine couth tomes” with a fine tooth comb, seeking practical wisdom, and timeless perspective.

This week on Wiki Politiki, we will be featuring one of the most heralded and widely-read ancient texts of all, the Baghvad Gita. Written more than 2,000 years ago, the Gita (meaning Divine Song), speaks to and accesses the “perennial wisdom” at the foundation of every spiritual path and practice. As Deepak Chopra has said, “Gita is the ultimate guide for your spiritual- journey.”

It has been called the “foundation of yoga.” Yet, many western yoga students want to focus on the physical aspects of yoga, and grow impatient with this story that has been foundational for those who brought yoga to the west — from Yogananda to Vivekananda to Iyengar to the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. It has also captivated and inspired many of the world’s greatest creative minds — scientists, thinkers, musicians, poets, and spiritual teachers: From Beethoven to Leonard Cohen, from Gandhi to Deepak Chopra, from Carl Jung to Robert Oppenheimer (‘father’ of the atomic bomb), from Emerson and Thoreau to Will Smith and Julia Roberts.

Our guest this week, Isaac Bentwich M.D. is a longtime practitioner and teacher of Yoga and Meditation. Trained as a physician and a scientist, he has founded three life-science technology companies, leading revolutions in medicine, genomics, and environment conservation, and he now heads Innovation Center at Technion, recognized as one of the top-ten innovative universities in the world. The vision and innovations that underlie the companies he founded came through periods of silent meditation retreats at the foothills of the Himalayas and in the Galilee. His path is one of reverence to the Wisdom teachings that shine through different traditions and religions. The study and practice of Gita’s Wisdom teachings has profoundly touched his life, and he is passionate about sharing this with others. His work on this translation of the Gita spanned twelve years.

For those not familiar with the book, the Gita is a dialogue between an Indian prince, Arjuna, and Krishna—his friend, master, and God incarnate. In the midst of a dramatic battle and deep moral dilemma, Krishna guides the prince from “worldly despondency to a brilliantly clear account of the meaning of life, the source of suffering, and the paths to happiness and self-fulfillment.”

Just as Arjuna and Krishna inhabit the “battlefield of the soul,” Bentwich suggests that this “ancient inner guide is more relevant than ever in addressing the unique challenges we face in the modern world.” With the purpose of making the Bhagavad Gita more accessible and relevant to contemporary readers, Bentwich’s new translation is unique in three ways:

1. It is the only translation that recreates in English the mesmerizing melody, meter, and rhyme of the Sanskrit original.
2. Gita is “women empowering,” crafted for both men and women.

From Parochial Dogma to Perennial Wisdom

Interview with Rabbi Rami Shapiro – Author, Holy Rascal, and “Perennial Wise Guy”

“It’s a dogma-eat-dogma world out there.” — Swami Beyondananda

In case you haven’t noticed, there is a pitched battle going on between two dueling paradigms – traditional religion, and scientific materialism – both of which hold part of the story, neither of which have the whole picture. As Bruce Lipton has pointed out, this modern religion called “science” actually uses words like “dogma” and “heresy” to enforce a set of beliefs, not unlike religion. And while science is supposedly a system for carefully assessing evidence and determining fact, I have met “fundamentalist” scientific materialists as fervent as their religious counterparts.

Unfortunately, while these two incomplete narratives are duking it out, we’ve lost the sane, sacred coherence of the spiritual and material acting in accord. Our guest on Wiki Politiki this week, Rabbi Rami Shapiro has dedicated his work and life to, in his words, “working for the spiritual liberation of humankind by freeing religion from the parochial and the political, the tribal and xenophobic, the one–dimensional and literal, to reclaim the Perennial Wisdom at the heart of humanity’s sacred myths, stories, rituals, and symbols.”

A Jewish practitioner of Perennial Wisdom, Rabbi Rami is an award–winning author of over thirty-six books on religion and spirituality. He received rabbinical ordination from the Hebrew Union College–Jewish Institute of Religion and holds a PhD in religion from Union Graduate School. A rabbinic chaplain with the USAF for 3 years, a congregational rabbi for 20, and a professor of religious studies for 10, Rabbi Rami currently co-directs the One River Foundation, is a Contributing Editor at Spirituality and Health magazine, and hosts the magazine’s bi-weekly podcast, Essential Conversations with Rabbi Rami (www.spiritualityhealth.com).

Rabbi Rami also considers himself a “holy rascal” whom he defines as, “spiritual culture jammers who playfully pull back the curtain on the great and terrible wizards of parochial piety and shallow spirituality to free religion from hucksterism and pious pabulum.”

So… how can accessing what Rabbi Rami calls “the mystic heart of the world’s religions” get us through the dystopian desert we seem stuck in to the Promised Land of thrival for each and all? Join us for a seriously humorous and humorously serious conversation this Tuesday, June 18th at 2 pm PT / 5 pm ET. http://omtimes.com/iom/shows/wiki-politiki-radio-show/

“Free Trip to Egypt” A Journey From the Illusion of Separation to the Truth of Oneness

Interview with Tarek Mounib, Producer of the Documentary “Free Trip to Egypt”

“The one thing that will save humankind is human kindness.” — Swami Beyondananda

It was more than 50 years ago that an envelope-pushing motion picture broke the issue of interracial marriage into mainstream consciousness. In “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner?” starring Spencer Tracy, Katherine Hepburn, Sidney Poitier and Katherine Houghton, two families get to confront societal taboos and personal conflicts as an interracial couple announce their pending marriage. The movie ends with mutual acceptance and both families sitting down to dinner together.

Note that the movie wasn’t called “Guess Who’s Coming for Coffee?”

There is something about the ritual of sharing food, company and conversation that can transform the illusion of separation into the truth of oneness. And just as the aforementioned movie opened doors and possibilities half a century ago, perhaps a new film can help heal the misunderstandings and conflicts between Americans and the Muslim world.

Tarek Mounib, a Canadian-Egyptian entrepreneur living in Switzerland was troubled by a world that seemed ever more divided and polarized. In response to increasing levels of anger and hatred towards “the other” on American social and broadcast media, he resolved to reach out to the very people who fear his culture, with an intriguing idea. With the aim of trying to build mutual understanding, Tarek traveled across the United States in order to find Americans who feel threatened by Islam and offered them a Free Trip to Egypt. (Spoiler: He goes to Donald Trump rallies to find these people.)

The resulting documentary by the same name is the story of those who had the courage – despite their preconceptions – to take Tarek up on the offer. You’ll have to see the movie to get the full picture, but I predict you will be moved, transformed and encouraged about our potential to “re-humanize” the other. (See below for special screening information)

I am thrilled and honored to have Tarek as my guest on Wiki Politiki this week in particular, because the film will be specially screened in 500 theaters nationwide this Wednesday, June 12th. You can click on the site below to find out where it is playing near you. (https://www.freetriptoegypt.com/watch#event_summary)

The filmmakers have even included a downloadable Discussion Guide which includes my article “Hearty Laughter –A Heart-to-Heart Connection That Builds Bridges,” along with many other talking points, interviews with the film makers, and suggestions for engaging around the movie.

Again, please go here to find out more (https://www.freetriptoegypt.com/about) and make plans to see the movie and participate in the live streamed discussion this Wednesday.

Meanwhile, enjoy the interview live this Tuesday, June 11th at 2 pm PT / 5 pm ET. http://omtimes.com/iom/shows/wiki-politiki-radio-show/

You’ll also be able to listen to it in our archives. Go here on Thursday the 13th (https://wikipolitiki.com/) and scroll down to Latest Wiki Podcast.
