ShowSoul of Life Show – Season 3

Episode 18

Ken Liu

I speak with Ken Liu, author of The Paper Menagerie, a short story swept the Hugo, the Nebula, and the World Fantasy awards. In his fantasy series The Dandelion Dynasty, the heroes are engineers, not wizards.

Liu's work translating many Chinese sci-fi authors into English has helped many of these authors become huge successes in the U.S., most notably Liu Cixin’s The Three-Body Problem.

Ken says his fiction often projects East Asian history and culture onto the backdrop of the modern American Empire.

Episode 17

The Legacy of Len Bias

Dave Ungrady has been a man on a mission to tell the story of U. of MD basketball star Len Bias, who died of a cocaine overdose two days after he was drafted to the Boston Celtics in 1986.

Next week Len Bias will finally be inducted into the NCAA Hall of Fame.

We talk about the comparisons between Bias and Michael Jordan and former U.S. Drug Zhar Robert DuPont’s statement that Len Biases overdose from cocaine was the single most important date in U.S. history of drug abuse next to the founding of AA.

Lou Lukas: Mind-Body-Disease and the Somatic Connection

I speak with Dr. Lou Lucas, chief of Palliative Medicine at the Nebraska and Western Iowa Veterans Health Care Systems about the mind-body connection, stress and autoimmune disorders like gastrointestinal problems, arthritis, migraines, nerve damage, and even some cancers. We talk about how to utilize the power of the mind to transform and heal the body with IFS and psychedelics.
