I am beyond thrilled to share this episode with you. James McCrae is a writer, poet, and meme-artist based in Austin, Texas. You may already know him as @wordsarevibrations on Instagram.

His nonfiction work has been published in Forbes, HuffPost, Adweek, Yogi Times, Entrepreneur, and Elephant Journal. His poetry has been featured in literary journals such as American Journal of Poetry, 34th Parallel Magazine, Thought Catalogue, New Millennium Writings, and Musepaper.

His debut book, Sh#t Your Ego Says, was published by Hay House in 2017, and has sold tens of thousands of copies in dozens of countries.

We talk about:

  • Internet culture and the meme as an art form and a way to create & spread ideas.
  • The connection between the imagination, psychedelics, and the internet as we know it.
  • Terence McKenna and his many ideas: from psychedelics to memes to the ‘transcendental object at the end of time’.
  • Keeping a level-headed perspective amidst the chaos in the world.
  • Reinventing yourself & pivoting your message to stay true to who you are.

And so much more.
