Celebrating our 200th episode with a short reflection on where we’ve been, where we are and where we’re going: as a movement, a podcast, a world

As we head into winter in the northern hemisphere, as the tilt of the world hangs in balance, we reached our 200th episode. So this is a time to look back and look forward: to look at where we’ve been, where we are and where we might go.

From our origins as an adjunct to the Accidental Gods Membership, explaining the neurophysiology and neuropsychology behind what we’re doing, and then then the spiritual grounding of connecting to the web of life… we moved into talking to people who live at the edge of the new system. In doing so, we discovered the magic of podcasts as a way to nudge our whole system towards change.

If it is the case, as Ilya Prigogine says, that ‘when a system is far from equilibrium, small islands of coherence in a sea of chaos can move it to a higher order’, then Accidental Gods aims to be one of the small islands of coherence. We are here to show the potential in the wonder of our world and humanity’s place in it – and to be utterly clear how far we still are from that potential. Above all, we’re here to help map the routes through to the new system that can yet emerge from the transition and transformation of our times.

How do we live, when under the surface of everything is an ocean of tears? With Douglas Rushkoff of Team Human

Douglas Rushkoff shares with us the palpable “ocean of tears” lurking beneath the surface of our collective consciousness—a reservoir of compassion waiting to be acknowledged and embraced. His candid reflections on the human condition, amidst the cacophony of a world in crisis, remind us of the importance of bearing witness to the pains and joys that surround us. He challenges us to consider the role of technology and AI not as tools for capitalist exploitation but as potential pathways to a more humane and interconnected existence.

Evolving Education: Building a Doughnut School with Jenny Grettve of When!When!

Jenny Grettve’s heart-mind is huge and deep and we explored many areas of the transformation that’s coming, from the evolution of a primary school along Doughnut Economic lines to the future of architecture, to the role of systems thinking in our political, social and, in the end, human, evolution. It was a truly heart-warming conversation and I hope it helps you, too, to think to the edges of yourself.

Meditation for the Spring Equinox 2024

Meditation for the Spring Equinox 2024

This guided visualisation walks us into the moment of balance between the long nights and the long days, the restorative time of winter and the outward-acting time of summer, between being to doing. Please take time for yourself to sit quietly and create a space out of time that has meaning for you. It doesn’t have to be at the moment of the equinox, whenever that is for you, wherever you are in the world, it’s the connection that counts, the marking of the day.
