Here are the time markers: the first segment is intro and astrology; the second segment, beginning at 49 minutes, is on Covid, where I cover two of the top non-issues. Then the third segment beginning at 1:32 is the Laurie Buchanan interview; and finally the fourth segment is Vesta Studio and begins at 2:45.

This week I focus on the fear issues surrounding the seeming pandemic and its aftermath, and how to manage our own inner responses. My guest is a psychotherapist named Laurie Buchanan, who helps me sort out this issue. Much of this involves how you claim back power you’ve given away, and your concept of authority.

In tonight’s program — the longest ever — I look into the psychology of why people resist considering ideas about environmental issues. I talk about getting out of the desperate, conflicted and authority-driven paradigm of health and wellness, and into a more autonomous model of self-care. In the second segment beginning at about one hour and four minutes, I explore the astrology of our moment, featuring Gemini galore, Vesta, Venus retrograde and Mercury. In the third segment beginning at about one hour and 49 minutes, there’s a conversation with the artist PeaceHawk about the theories of Marshall McLuhan. Then in the fourth segment beginning at about three hours and 10 minutes, a deeply intimate Vesta Studio continuing the discussion of cultivating a sexual relationship with oneself, including some of my peak experiences on the Book of Blue journey. Here is the link to the Book of Blue compilation. Those wanting access to the full project may write to me at efc@bookofblue.com. The special edition of Tantra Studio focusing on Venus Retrograde is about seven or eight shows down — the April 7 edition. If I forgot to add a resource that I promised, please write to me. NOTE: The cold opener is from The Simpsons, Season 22, Episode 6.

You may read my review of the interview here. I’m sure I’ve promised some other resources; if you hear me mention one that’s not listed here, please drop me a note at efc@ericfrancis.com. The last musical piece, at the very end, is “Solar Eclipse House Concert part 7,” by Vision Quest, from the summer of 2017.

Dangerous ideas on Planet Waves FM

Thank you for sponsoring Planet Waves FM

Here is this week’s program. I was not intending this at all, but I may have created the first cohesive explanation of the Covid situation. This, with the help of two researchers who have not been sleeping much: Planet Waves Chief of Investigations Cindy Ragusa, and Sherryl Haverhals, with me on lead vocals. You tell me. The program is three hours (ending with Venus retrograde in Gemini), without Tantra Studio, which I will add as a standalone soon. I also have in the can an interview with Dana Ullman, the owner of Homeopathic Educational Services, continuing my intro to homeopathy. But not tonight. Tonight, I crack the code of coronavirus, tying together the many “blind men and the elephant” approaches we have been seeing. Here is a comment on Dr. Judy Mikovits.
