It's not a trick question. Are you living a purpose-filled journey or settling for consuming a steady diet of manufactured meaning? How does our culture encourage us (or not) to find our purpose? How did we get here? How can we find our meaning as individuals and human beings? In the first hour long Prodigal, Larry traces the loss of meaning in American culture and what it means for us in our own pursuits. Definitely worth a listen.

Finally, Nicole and Larry come to their white whale. Like Garak, Dukat is a complex Cardassian full of rich history and questionable character traits. But in the final analysis is he worthy of the veneration he ascribes himself in his own mind or is he a broken down sociopath who deserves to be relegated to the firey chasm to which the Pah-Wraiths submerged him?

Live from the promenade we discuss. Pull up a chair, pour yourself a kanar, and enjoy the latest installment of Deep Space Vibes.

What's the deal with religion and the Spirit? Is the fact that there are falsifiable facts in religious tradition a deterrent from participation or is there a deeper neurological meaning at work?

The boys get metaphysical in the latest episode of Nils & Larry In The Evening. From getting placid in a sensory depravation tank to how mindfulness can transcend daily life. Also, could it be that God or spirits are four dimensional beings? Are these two things related? Let's find out...

It's Friday the 13th and Nils and Larry dive into one of the more controversial songs out right now which deals with race in America before digging into their favorite sports. Finally, the boys talk about how strategic thinking in sports and games like Go can help people better improve their strategic thinking about life.

In the fourth installment of Prodigal, Larry goes back to a church for the first time in a decade, fulfilling his promise to wait at the boundary line to the prodigal father's country.

How did it go? Did the Spirit show up or was it just another performance? Sit back, pour yourself a drink, and let's go to church with Larry.

In the third installment of Prodigal, Larry tries to pick apart what Jesus meant in his miracle of a saying, "Render unto Caesar what is Caesar's and to God what is God's".

What is the place of politics in the Spirit filled life? Should we be obsessed with politics at the expense of our spiritual or existential lives? Should the Kingdom be ushered in with the vote? Can there ever be a savior on Capitol Hill? Let's talk...

Of all the drugs in all the world why is it that one of the most dangerous gets a free pass? What is it about alcohol that it is not only accepted in society as a whole, but celebrated as a right?

In part one of this discussion, Nils and Larry try to begin to conceptualize what it actually is about alcohol that makes it such a human heritage.

In the first double digit episode of The Art of Curiosity (formerly Cat Club), Nils and Larry talk about their education experience, with its strengths and weakness, and talk about what could change systemically so that the process could produce more complete people.

In this second episode of Prodigal, Larry reads the ancient story of the hero who comes aware of himself and his responsibilities, learns his role in the world, and ventures out to fight the ages-old dragon of Kaos.

The hero's story is all of our stories. Recorded during a thunderstorm of the Spirit, this story is foundational for the Prodigal listener. Enjoy and let there be light!
