Welcome Back, Jim!

On today’s episode, we welcome back host Jim Stump (@jstump) after having been away for several months. We hear about where he’s been, what he’s seen, and what will become of his wanderings and wonderings.


Interesting show and while I probably won’t visit these places, I felt fortunate to have listened to Brian Fagan’s outstanding lectures on human prehistory. His enthusiasm and knowledge for the subject matter literally makes you feel like you are there. And Fagan’s voice is so rich that it fully enhances the experience.


I couldn’t resist and started listening to it again :grin:

and hearing Fagan tell the story of the footprints at Laetoli still inspires awe for me

Thank you, I enjoyed this podcast. And welcome back Jim!

I have learned about some of the places Jim visited through the British archaeology group Time Team (https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=time+team+official)

It is fascinating stuff. I look forward to the podcasts, and Jim Stump’s new book(s).

Welcome back, Jim. I’m looking forward to hearing more about what you’ve been reading in The Matter With Things. I’m plodding through it from front to back, mostly because I’m reading it on my Kindle and this is the only time I’ve used it. But I look forward to seeing how it feeds into the final chapter on the sense of the sacred. I recently came across this video interview with a buddhist which is quite a teaser for what is to come. @Kendel, you might find this interesting in terms of your thread on the meaning of life.
