How Chabbad That?

00:0000:00

Join Drinks With God this week as we chat with Rabbai Yaakov! We talk about the history of the Chabbad movement within Judaism, and what it's like in a Chabbad everywhere from Nepal to Vermont. We chat a little about how he became a Rabbai as well, and the challenges of starting his own congregation in his new home on Long Island, New York. We even talk a little bit about the Judaic philosophies surrounding my favorite subject: death!

Please get in touch with Rabbai Yaakov if you live near his Chabbad and are interested in joining the Mommy & Me program, or the daycare: rabbi@chabadhv.com

Talk Jungle to Me

May 23rd, 2017

Join us this week as we take a tour of the culture, history, language, and religion of the Peruvian basin with Christian Brown! We spend the first ten or so minutes chatting about the work that brought him to the area: cataloguing the native languages newly forming along the Amazon. While he was there, he was shown firsthand the culture of herbal healing and oral tradition by a gentleman named Adolpho. We discuss the concepts of a Curandero vs a Brujareia, what ayahuasca and similar plants mean in a cultural and religious context, and drink whiskey. Give a listen!

The Charms of Crone School

May 2nd, 2017

00:0000:00

This week we chat with the latest in a long line of CRONES! Alright, that's not quite it. Our guest this week comes from a family tradition that's a blend of Stregheria and la Veccia Religione (the former of which is an Italian folk tradition heavily based in Catholicism, the latter of which is an Italian-American revivalist religion that borrows heavily from Streghe, but also has many Wiccan elements). She talks about her family structure, how and what she and her relatives do, and we try very hard to stay awake despite sleep deprivation! Check it out!

Join Drinks With God as musician and poet Alicia Best stops a while on her non-stop world tour to share her story! Learn the history, and ins & outs, of Ethical Humanism as well as what it means to be a Devout Atheist. Come see Catholicism through the eyes of a third-generation Ethical Humanist, take a peek into one of the only openly Mayan Churches left, and have an ancient tree talk to you while spirit walking in Antigua. We talk in-depth about DMT, modern-day religious drug use, and what gets lost in translation as cultures mix and the ages pass. This may be our longest episode thus far, but it's too good to edit down!

You can find Alicia's music on band camp here and on Facebook here.
