Episode 57: Peals of laughter & thunder (ft. Ricky & RevDev)
This slightly longer show opens with a careening conversation with Ricky, one of the Grand Masters of the OSGH, about our last two pilgrimages. The conversation goes off the rails, which was precisely the point. Following Ricky's appearance, we play host to RevDev, who ventured to the studio to talk about raves, Paracelsian anthropology, and the out-of-body feeling that comes with dancing.

Episode 48: The three schools of Camino historiography
The show begins with a serious discussion of the ways in which the history of the Camino de Santiago has been written, and re-written to suit the times.

Neon Shrines
Episode 46: Hero with a few dozen faces
We talk about folk creatures, coffee anxiety, & Joseph Campbell's book Hero With A Thousand Faces. Though we had no intention of entertaining Campbell's monomyth, we took it for a spin and were really impressed by its interpretive power. The heart of the show, though, is Caroline's field report from the fontana de Saint-Jacques. A decorated master in the OSGH, Caroline reflects on the nature of powerspots, sacred space, and sonic zones. Selah!

Neon Shrines
Episode 45: Internet Music special
We scoured the internet for, um, internet music. You know, music that was made popular on account of their role in meme culture. There is some Neon Shrine chat at the beginning and the end, but the middle of the show was given over to the grooves.
