It's "Us Vs. Them" in 2018 America. From public discourse to University campuses all the way to the political process, if you're not on the winning team you are an immoral enemy. But what if "the other side" isn't evil. What if psychology and spirituality have something to teach us about humility and morality? Let's find out...

Returning from a brief hiatus, Larry returns to the pod talking objectivism, Ayn Rand, libertarianism, liberal values, and ROADS with the very well read and articulate Jay Adragna. Very informative, precise, and timely, this pod is a great introduction to classical liberal, libertarian, ideals.

After a short absence, Larry returns with a surprising turn of events in his spiritual journey. What is the relationship between the "ego" and the Universe? How does it relate to the Spirit Larry has been trying so hard to find? Where is the golden palace with the jade and diamond words? Join us... namaste.

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...

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.
