Dedicated to liberation in all its forms, the Deconstructing Yourself podcast is passionate about fearlessly investigating, attempting, discussing, and questioning all things to do with awakening, meditation, mindfulness, brain hacking, neurofeedback, consciousness, and more.

Because I'm super lucky, I get the chance to interview some of the most interesting thinkers, authors, philosophers, and teachers around. By engaging them in dialog, we look at secular post-, non-, un- Buddhism, Advaita Vedanta, Hindu Tantrism, philosophy, the neuroscience of the sense of self, neurofeedback and the consciousness hacking movement, aspects of artificial intelligence, entheogens, and much more.

If you're hankering for something beyond the dogma and conformism of your practice environment, think of the Deconstructing Yourself podcast as the radical cafe where you can hear from the most interesting luminaries either from the outside edges of dharma practice, or a fresh take from more traditional teachers.

Goals
98 of 150 patrons
150 Patrons for Production Upgrades

Deconstructing Yourself cares not only about great content, but also great sound quality. The show could use better microphones, mixer, and other gear—sometimes we even purchase a microphone for guests who don't have access to such gear, and use that to record their episode. Donations also pay to rent a podcasting studio for most episodes, as well as provide for a real sound editor. Furthermore, in an effort to put out an ever higher quality podcast, I'd like to be able to bring on some contract help for various aspects of podcast creation. Example: ever notice how weak or non-existent the show notes are? It would be awesome to be able to pay somebody to do that, since volunteers have so far been effective but intermittent. I'd also like to be able to offer transcripts of the sessions.

These are just a few small examples among many. Upgrading the DY podcast will be a win for all listeners, and with 150 Patrons, we can do it.
