Regenerative Culture Podcasts

Regenerative Culture Podcasts

Here are several podcasts where you can learn about regenerative culture practices. We are looking to add podcasts to this list that are in other languages and not centered in the U.S. Please get in touch if you have recommendations.

All My Relations: Hosted by Matika Wilbur (Swinomish and Tulalip) and Adrienne Keene (Cherokee Nation). “A podcast to discuss our relationships as Native peoples—to land, ancestors, and to each other.”

America Adapts with Doug Parsons. Particularly check out the episode called “Climate Change Podcasters Unite!”, which introduces several other climate change adapatation podcasts (practical solutions people are implementing as we face more storms and displacement, etc).

How to Survive the End of the World: Join Autumn Brown and adrienne maree brown, two sisters who share many identities, as writers, activists, facilitators, and inheritors of multiracial diasporic lineages, as well as a particular interest in the question of survival, as we embark on a podcast that delves into the practices we need as a community, to move through endings and to come out whole on the other side, whatever that might be.

The Permaculture Podcast with Scott Mann: A podcast dedicated to Permaculture education, sustainability, gardening, organic food, and resiliency.

Upstream: Unlearning everything you thought you knew about economics. Radical ideas and inspiring stories for a just transition to a more beautiful and equitable world

The Next System Project: an initiative of The Democracy Collaborative aimed at bold thinking and action to address the systemic challenges the United States faces now and in coming decades. Deep crises of economic inequality, racial injustice and climate change—to name but three—are upon us, and systemic problems require systemic solutions.

Forthcoming: Indigenous Regenerative Economy, co-hosted by David Karabelnikoff with support from the Healing and Reconciliation Institute.

Bloom Podcast: Psychedelics Panel Discussion

Bloom Podcast: Psychedelics Panel Discussion

This episode is an insightful panel discussion about psychedelics, recorded at Imagine Festival on Orcas Island in September 2015. Moderator and panelists: Rick Ingrasi, Donna Dryer, Richard Yensen, and Magenta Ceiba. Some of the topics we touch on include the legal history of psychedelics, possibilities for intergenerational collaboration, and the different types of settings people can create for their trips. We also describe several entrypoints for receiving training in therapy for altered states. This panel is rich with wisdom and experience, and we hope you enjoy it! To stay tuned to other podcasts, media and in person events about psychedelic community integration and activism, you can sign up at

Older Podcast Episodes

Older Podcast Episodes

Here are older episodes of the Bloom podcast from when we were called Evolver Network.

From Shock to Awe

Interview with filmmaker Janine Sagert, the director of Veterans for Entheogenic Therapy, Ryan Compte, and Saj Razvi, director of Trauma Dynamics .

From Shock to Awe is a feature-length documentary that chronicles the journeys of military veterans as they seek relief from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder with the help of ayahuasca, MDMA (“Ecstasy”), and cannabis. It takes an intimate look at how these substances can be used to heal our wounded warriors—and, by extension, their loved ones.

Our intention with this film is to raise awareness of the healing properties of, and help change the laws regulating, ayahuasca, MDMA, and cannabis so that these substances can be legally available for responsible use in therapeutic, and spiritual, settings—especially for veterans with PTSD. Because we believe that all vets have a right to choose their own path to healing.


Water Cycles

Interview about hydrology with Evolver Sporeganizers Andrew Stocker, a geologist from Santa Fe New Mexico, and Jacob Aman, a researcher working on toxic cleanup projects near Santa Cruz, Silicon Valley and the surrounding region. We cover:

  • How the Earth’s water cycles work
  • What dangers we face with the current ways people and governments manage waterways
  • How water management is complicated because it crosses so many legal jurisdictions
  • And we even touch on… space weather!

A Network for Regenerative Culture

A Network for Regenerative Culture

Cover image: The Fifth Sacred Thing by Jessica Perlstein

Bloom Network has been developing some infrastructure for regenerative initiatives and communities/networks to share resources and wisdom with each other. It is peer-led by local chapter leaders on the ground who are community organizers attuned to many different communities in their regions. They produce events and media to help the broader public find what is happening and participate in regenerative culture.

Over the coming months, we’ll be implementing social media features online including a wiki for people to share best practices and find who is working on what in the regenerative culture area they’re interested in, interactive webcasts for networking and resource sharing, etc. You can connect via our website at https://bloomnetwork.org, and attend our conference, HiveMind, in San Francisco this fall. HiveMind is focused on collaborative action coordination. 

We’re mostly designed to help scale up what is working well, and better connect regenerative culture makers across different sectors or movements so we can more quickly address climate change, divest/invest, etc.
