Under The Skin with Russell Brand

Russell Brand

A weekly interview series from Russell Brand that examines what's beneath the surface—of the people we admire, the ideas that define our time, and the history we’re told. Speaking with guests from the worlds of academia, popular culture, and the arts, Russell seeks to uncover the ulterior truth behind our constructed reality. And have a laugh. On his new podcast ‘Above the Noise’ Russell guides us all—curious beginners, spiritual skeptics, and experienced practitioners—in brief, 10-minute meditations. Listen to Above the Noise on Luminary

    Author of Dopamine Nation: Finding Balance in the Age of Indulgence, psychiatrist Dr. Anna Lembke joins me this week to talk about pleasure, pain, dopamine, and the brain! This is a fantastic episode. Dr. Anna explains how our brains are constantly trying to maintain a state of homeostasis—amid the relentless seesaw between pleasure and pain.

    #204 A Global Health Con and How To Stop It (with Dr. Bob Gill)

    14:25

    This week’s episode is very important. Today I spoke with Dr. Bob Gill a British-based GP who is fighting against the privatisation of The NHS (In Britain, that is the National Health Service.) Dr. Gill explains, clearly and thoroughly, how our healthcare is being taken from us and given to private companies in order to fleece us for our money--and, even more devastatingly, to let those who can’t afford healthcare die. He breaks down the strategies used by corporations, by YOUR governments and by the media to slyly pass legislation that hands over your health to profit-driven CEOs. This is an urgent matter that affects everyone. Please check out the links below and watch Dr. Bob’s film 'The Great NHS Heist' on YouTube. https://youtu.be/Www0cHLQulw More info  New edit of film 'The Great NHS Heist' is uploaded onto YT.  https://youtu.be/Www0cHLQulw Original version https://vimeo.com/ondemand/thegreatnhsheist Other links https://twitter.com/drbobgill Film https://twitter.com/greatnhsheist http://thegreatnhsheist.com https://www.facebook.com/TheGreatNHSHeist NHS campaign group due to launch October 12th. https://twitter.com/YourNHS2021 https://www.facebook.com/YourNHSNeedsYou https://www.instagram.com/yournhsneedsyou website under construction www.yournhsneedsyou.com My new meditation podcast Above the Noise is out now only on Luminary, I will be releasing guided meditations every Wednesday, please check out it: http://luminary.link/meditate  Elites are taking over!

    #203 Should We Hijack Political Parties or Start A Revolution?

    16:22

    This week I spoke with Krystal Ball. Krystal is a progressive American commentator who, along with right-wing commentator Saagar Enjeti, co-hosts the podcast/video show Breaking Points. (The duo previously hosted a popular show for The Hill.)  Krystal and I discuss many of the issues that divide left and right-wing politics. We explore how politicians fear the media and thus are controlled by their narratives. I delve into whether or not Krystal, as a progressive, feels that her respect for the Democratic Party has been eroded. Plus, we reflect on actions and options: What should we do? Should we hijack a political party and use their position to make change, or should we start from scratch and start a revolution, scrapping the entire system completely? Krystal has some very interesting, balanced, and thoughtful ideas on all of these questions; her answers will appeal to those on every side of the political spectrum. More info Krystal also hosts a progressive podcast Krystal, Kyle & Friends.

    #202 The Moral Conundrums of Politics

    18:21

    This week I spoke with Tim Pool. Tim is a journalist, activist, and one of the biggest political YouTubers of the moment. He initially became known for livestreaming the 2011 Occupy Wall Street protests. Tim is also known for discussing some of the more difficult questions in relation to politics, including: the issues that divide The Left and The Right, and the issues that cause some of the biggest political fracas and conflicts in the US right now. What are the correct answers? Is it possible to bridge the political divide? Where does the question of individual sovereignty, morality, and civil rights come to a head? This episode tries to tackle those issues, or at least discuss them. More info  Tim Pool operates four channels and a subscription model website TimCast.com.

    #201 Finding Light (with John Higgs)

    12:40

    This week I spoke with John Higgs! John is a writer, journalist and cultural historian. He writes extensively about William Blake and counter-cultural figures like Alan Moore and Timothy Leary. "William Blake vs the World" and "The Future Starts Here: Adventures in the Twenty-First Century" are just two examples of his work. I am reading some of John’s books on William Blake at the moment and I’m really enjoying them. In this episode we discuss the magic and mysticism of William Blake and how reading his work can help us understand: the world in a more imaginative way, our various models of reality, the sublime and the divine, counter-cultural figures like the electronic band KLF who set fire to a million pounds, pragmatic optimism, and finding a new approach to dealing with the mysteries of the world!

He is best known for his books that explore the socio-cultural impacts of food, such as The Botany of Desire and The Omnivore's Dilemma.

    #198 The Matter with Things (with Iain McGilchrist)

    11:50

    This week I spoke to one of my favourite guests on Under the Skin - Iain McGilchrist. Iain is an author, psychiatrist and former Oxford literary scholar. He came to prominence with his publication "The Master and His Emissary - The Divided Brain and the Making of the Western World”. His latest book is called “The Matter With Things.” This is a fantastic podcast that discusses Iain’s work, the differences between the left and the right hemispheres, but also much more than that. We delve into some deep philosophical discussions about how we perceive and understand reality, God and the mystical; how being a spiritual person really is “no picnic;” and we speak about therapy, psychiatry, and the challenges we face when trying to help one another. It’s a wonderful conversation, and we will definitely be having Iain back again! If you have questions or comments email us at hello@russellbrand.com More Info: The Matter With Things is coming out on 9th November and is available to pre-order here: https://channelmcgilchrist.com/the-matter-with-things/ Channel McGilchrist membership which is via the website. https://channelmcgilchrist.com/join/ I'm doing live dates in the UK this autumn with my new stand up show, '33'.
