    #213 Fearlessness and Fighting Power (with Dr. Vandana Shiva)

    13:57

    This week I was fortunate to have Vandana Shiva return as a guest on the podcast. Her first interview on Under the Skin was one of my favourites, and as many of you noticed, moved me very much. Vandana is an Indian scholar, food sovereignty advocate, and environmental activist. She is author of: Oneness vs. the 1%: Shattering Illusions, Seeding Freedom. She is powerful, compassionate, and incredibly well educated. In this episode we talk about the real affect globalisation has on the world, the failings of COP26, the manipulation occurring at governmental levels by billionaires, and how we can cultivate fearlessness in order to stand up against the powerful to fight for what’s right and necessary.

    #211 Fighting Corruption Using a Spiritual Perspective (with Sarah Chayes)

    14:37

    This week’s episode is fantastic! I am joined by Sarah Chayes, who was recommended to me during my episode with Sebastian Junger. Sarah Chayes is an author and a journalist, and has worked as a political advisor. She writes primarily about the nature of corruption. Her books include Thieves of State: Why Corruption Threatens Global Security, and most recently: On Corruption in America: And What Is at Stake which is coming out in paperback in the US next week. This is a fascinating conversation with someone who possesses incredible experience. Sarah talks about her time in Afghanistan, her stint as a political advisor to the military, and her understanding of corruption that exists at every level of power. We get deep and philosophical about how this affects us as humans, and how we can fight corruption.  In the UK Sarah’s book On Corruption in America is titled Everybody Knows: Corruption in America if you’re looking to buy a copy.More Info: Get Sarah’s books here: https://www.sarahchayes.org/books Come see me live; check out upcoming dates: https://www.russellbrand.com/live-dates/ My meditation podcast, Above the Noise, is out now, only on Luminary.

    #210 Is There a Point to Left Wing Politics? (with Jeremy Gilbert)

    15:23

    This week I spoke with Jeremy Gilbert. Jeremy is a Professor of Cultural and Political Theory at the University of East London. He is author of Twenty-First Century Socialism, and his latest book Hegemony Now: How Big Tech and Wall Street Won the World is out next year.   As a big fan of the late Mark Fisher’s work, particularly his book Capitalist Realism (for which I did the audiobook recording), I was intrigued to learn that Mark and Jeremy were associates. And I felt very compelled to speak to Jeremy about his work and outlook on politics. This episode is a very down-to-earth, realistic and in-depth discussion about the work of the left wing in politics. What does the left stand for? What are they doing right now? Is it working? What needs to happen next?

    #208 Emergency Power (with Dr. Luke Kemp)

    11:16

    This week I spoke with a brilliant researcher, Dr. Luke Kemp. Luke is a research associate at the Centre for The Study of Existential Risk at Cambridge University. He is an incredible source of information regarding state power, control, what happens governmentally in times of crises, and the subsequent impact on citizens. We speak about the use of Emergency Powers and the abuse of these powers, too: how and why they are employed, and why they are often never taken away once implemented.  For more info on Luke’s work and a reading list, go here: https://www.cser.ac.uk/news/meet-researcher-dr-luke-kemp/ More Info: Come see me live - check out upcoming dates: https://www.russellbrand.com/live-dates/ My 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!

    13:00

    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!

Anwar Shaikh is a heterodox economist, founding member of the Union of Radical Political Economists, and Professor of Economics at The New School for Social Research in New York City. His latest book Capitalism: Competition, Conflict, Crisis has been widely acclaimed as one of the most important works of economic theory to have come from the Left in many years.  Anwar explains how and why capitalism works, and the consequences of having it as the dominant economic operating system in the world.

    #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.
