To celebrate episode 100, I invited my comrade and soul brother Rak Razam back to talk about his progress in the field of shamanography. His online documentary series Shamans of the Global Village is an extremely powerful and important media project that deserves and requires our grassroots support. We discuss the production of his first episode, the implications and perils of scaling the DMT experience to the masses, the philosophy of Godgasms, and much more.
Rak Razam is the world’s leading ‘experiential’ journalist, writing about and helping shape the emergence of a new cultural paradigm in the 21st century. A writer, film producer and culture maker, he bridges the worlds of shamanism, consciousness and popular culture.
He is currently producer of an episodic TV show called Shamans of the Global Village with director Niles Heckman. (http://www.shamansoftheglobalvillage.com)

Author of the critically acclaimed book Aya Awakenings: A Shamanic Odyssey and the companion volume of interviews, The Ayahuasca Sessions, he is a frequent lecturer on ayahuasca and the shamanic revival sweeping the West.
