Expanding Mind is a weekly show in which co-hosts Erik Davis and Maja D’aoust “explore the cultures of consciousness: magic, religion, psychology, technology.” Erik is of course the author of, among other things, the widely praised 1999 book Techgnosis: Myth, Magic, and Mysticism in the Age of Information, about the hermetic, mystical, millenialist, and apocalyptic-visionary impulse that has always accompanied technological revolution in general and the current digital information technology revolution in particular. D’aoust, as described in a nice 2010 profile by LA Weekly, is the self-proclaimed “White Witch of L.A. … a writer and lecturer on mysticism, magic and ancient teachings.” She is the co-author (with Adam Parfrey) of The Secret Source: The Law of Attraction and Its Hermetic Influence throughout the Ages. Their past guest list is an amazing roster of significant mainstream and subcultural figures in the realms of religion, technology, academia, esotericism, the paranormal, and more.

So, congrats to David for being invited to appear in such excellent company and add his voice to the conversation.
