Deep Transformation (Podcast)

This podcast is hosted by Roger Walsh & John Dupuy, and it consists of interviews with leading thinkers, sages, scientists, and activists offering diverse ideas from around the world on how to go beyond traditional positions and polarities—beyond
 left and right, material and spiritual—to seek syntheses of deep wisdom and practical know-how that integrate the best of all positions.

A recent 2-part interview features philosopher Steve McIntosh entitled: "Consciousness Evolves, Politics Can Too: Beyond the Culture War."

Daily Evolver (Podcast)

Jeff Salzman hosts this weekly podcast covering a wide variety of contemporary and general topics involving world events and trends. Always insightful, and always bringing an integral perspective to bear. Sometimes he features guests.

A recent episode entitled: "Gender Fluidity: Fruitful and Fanatic" is one of the most nuanced discussions you're likely to find on the topic and it includes some very valuable historical background.

nature.com "Cultural Evolution"

Nature.com is one of the pre-eminent science publications in the world and these links document their ongoing scientific research on the topic of cultural evolution.

To give you a flavor of their content, a recent article is entitled: "New insights on commemoration of the dead through mortuary and architectural use of pigments at Neolithic Çatalhöyük, Turkey."
