How does anyone blind or sighted understand the world? Perception is deeper and more mysterious than we can imagine. Our other senses have their own wisdom separate from sight.
This weekly podcast hosted by Michael Nye is a series of narrative histories that focus on the shifting pools of perception and deep transformation.
Michael spent seven years listening. “It takes time to tell a story.” Knowing what the world looks like is not a requirement for understanding. Stories are often found resting along the edges of surprise and revelation. Every person – every place is a map to somewhere else.
The first 9 Episodes were released on February 3 and two new Episodes are scheduled to be released each following week. There will be 48 total episodes in this series.
