Dear Friend and Listener:

Tonight’s Planet Waves FM beings with a discussion of the basic human right to choose or refuse medical treatment. This is fundamental to a sane and civilized society.

Then I have an interview with filmmaker Tobe Carey, who has directed many “forgotten history” documentaries about the Hudson Valley, north of New York City. We will talk about his background as a filmmaker and videographer, and then consider the history of the Ashokan Reservoir. This was the subject of his film Deep Water.

In Tantra Studio (available separately in advance), I continue my discussion if sex, intimacy and trust in the digital age. What does it mean to live your truth in a time when anything about you can be revealed to others?I offer ideas how to awaken from the digital trance.

Thank you for your generous support.
