In this episode, Erik interviews Ryan Peverly of the excellent Occulture Podcast. Our discussion centers around not only how Occulture has evolved, but how Ryan and the podcast has changed together. This subject is particularly interesting because of the amount of knowledge and growth Ryan has assimilated in the short time he’s been podcasting. Tune in and join us!
This episode was recorded over Skype for Linux. There were some weird audio effects, like echo on the line, crackling, and audio drop outs all over the place. I learned my lesson: no more Skype for Linux when I’m recording a podcast! Back to Google Hangouts.
Since our last episode was all about beer, there’s no beer at all in this one! Ryan is drinking dark roast mushroom coffee from Four Sigmatic, while Erik is drinking lemon La Croix.
Show Notes and Links
We mention a few individual Occulture episodes in our conversation. I won’t link to each one of them individually, but Ryan mentions episode 31 with Laurel Airica as the episode where he felt his style really changed and solidified, so go check that one out for sure.

“Do you think they have Russian mail-order transhumanist vegan brides?”
In this episode, Nate and Erik trek out to Silverton, Oregon, to visit Silver Falls Brewery. Our good friend Austin was kind enough to drive us all the way out there in exchange for all the beer he could drink. We sat down with founder and brewer Eric Druliner and assistant manager/brewer Jose Ramirez to talk about small breweries, small towns, and incredible beers.
This episode is almost entirely about brewing and beer, so it’s a departure from our normal format. We tried to get Eric and Jose to talk about anything weird that happened while brewing and got maybe 10% of a Sasquatch anecdote.
The Silver Falls Ale House in Silverton, Oregon, has a beautiful space and delicious beer.
Silver Falls Ale House is located at 207 Jersey St, Silverton, OR 97381.
- 1933 Pilsner
- Winter Falls Stout
- Round 1 Pacific Strong Ale

After recording we drank more of their beer and all of it was delicious.
“The main job of a brewer is to tell the assistant brewer, ‘Hey, you missed a spot!'”

Erik reviews Abominable Winter Ale from Hopworks Urban Brewery.
In this episode, Erik interviews Nate Lee, known on Twitter as @OccultFan. Nate was just recently initiated into Freemasonry, so we go deep into some of the hidden occult meaning of initiations, self improvement, and understanding reality.
There’s also a brief moment with Victor, our “studio audience” who just had his petition accepted.

In this MABcon episode, Matt and Erik brew a beer! If you’re a homebrewer, you will enjoy getting some of Matt’s tips and experience. He’s been brewing for a long time and has experience as the brewmaster of a successful microbrewery. We do an all grain brew of a trippel.
This episode also features Erik and Matt’s first glimpse of Soror Tzadkiel’s Rota Tarot Internal Alchemy. We are really impressed! Go check it out.
“In my experience, you cannot homebrew without drinking a beer.”

In this MABcon episode, the gang takes a field trip to visit Twin Peaks locations. Then we talk about Twin Peaks! Then we talk about Oklahomans, the post-job economy, and more Twin Peaks! Please join us for MABcon 2017!
The Twin Peaks locations we visited were in North Bend and Snoqualmie Falls, Washington. We recorded at Snoqualmie Falls Brewery, and on the ferry, and at our Secret Headquarters.
“Holy crap! Donald Trump is Judy!”
Hey everybody! Since I’ve been learning more and more about audio editing and mixing and all of that stuff, I went back to episode 7, where Caedmon “We’ll fix it in post” Webb interviews Heather and Valerie from Le Droit Humain. This has been one of our most popular episodes, so it always bugged me that it sounded so bad. Now it’s vastly improved.
Go check it out and see what you think!
(Wait, now that I think about it, maybe I should be more concerned that our most popular episode doesn’t have any of us on it.)
YOU GUYS, I GOT TO INTERVIEW SCOTT GOSNELL! Okay, okay, I’m calming down. In this episode, Erik interviews Scott Gosnell, entrepreneur, scientist, writer, wizard, autodidact, and translator of the collected works of Giordano Bruno. We spend a lot of time diving into Bruno’s life and works, but we also talk about other stuff. It is a really fascinating conversation that touches on the origins of psychology, the art of memory, Neoplatonism, and even Dzogchen Buddhism.
No beer this episode! We recorded in the middle of the day so it seemed like a bad idea.
Links and Notes
“It seems like Giordano Bruno’s superpower was pissing people off. And memorizing things.”
Join us as Erik interviews Seyta Selter, ancestral healing practitioner and professor of consciousness studies and dreams at The Evergreen State College. Seyta was once the head lady at Duchess Clothier and now does incredible healing work with ancestral lineage work. It is pretty amazing stuff. Listen and see! Seyta has learned to listen to her intuition and dreams to guide her life in incredible directions.
We were so busy talking that we only drank one beer, Ancestry Brewing‘s Oatmeal Stout.

By the way, Erik was wrong again this episode. Ancestry Brewing is located in Sellwood, which is a neighborhood in Portland, and not in Estacada, a city completely separate from Portland.
