Ep. 37 - Learning to Listen & Needing Validation from Others
After a long year, Adam and Brandon are finally back in the same room. Adam is freshly back from an Ayahuasca ceremony and Brandon has literally transformed himself while in Austin (he's lost 30 lbs) he looks amazing, and sounds vibrant.  After some catching up about life they talk about the importance of listening to our loved ones and important people in our lives; as in really learning to hear what they are saying and not just, brushing it aside, discounting it as gibberish, or just them annoying you again. We also discuss the need we have to receive validation from people that are irrelevant in our lives, when really there is no validation that exists other than what they are saying in our own minds. We discuss how the need for validation from others often becomes the poison of our minds, and ultimately holds us back from true spiritual and creative success we all wish to achieve. We hope you enjoy. For blog and apparel - IG - @cookecollective @infinitevisi0ns @funknastycooke Twitter - @adamtcooke Follow us on Telegram - Intro Music - Evan Hatfield @evan_hatfield.mp3 &

Ep. 33 - Luke Wessman; A True Gentleman
In this episode Adam enjoys a great conversation with Luke Wessman. He has a fascinating life story; he’s a well established tattoo artist that was born on a hippie commune in rural Tennessee. We talk about many various topics from meditation, wild conspiracy theories, Kanye, “have to’s & get to’s, relationships, how to improve our romantic relationships, what it was like to work and appear on the show Miami Ink, as well as his intriguing road to becoming a high degree Freemason.   Lukes discusses his childhood experiences that are anything but normal— he came into the world the natural way ( a tent) on a fully sustainable hippie commune with no running water or electricity, then moving and living a nomadic life up and down the coast of California. He discusses how he had a moment of embarrassment with his childhood background while eventually deciding to embrace his story which led him to learning the value of hard work. His values and life experiences eventually moved him to start the community and brand called The Lost Art of the Gentleman; “Treat them like you don't have them forever,” is how Luke would advise men on the treatment of, not just romantic partners, but people in our lives that matter most to us.. Finally, Luke talks about his career as a tattoo artist, doing it for the love of the craft, the secret to being able to work with high-profile clients, working with people without a hidden agenda and just being a genuine person. We believe we can all learn something positive from Luke and this podcast proves it.

Ep. 32 - Earthships w Lauren Anderson
In this episode, Adam Cooke travels to Taos, NM to talk to Lauren Anderson of Earthship Biotecture, a community and concept founded by Michael Reynolds (inspired by television news stories about the problem of trash, and the lack of affordable housing) who built structures, in the early days, out of discarded steel and tin cans. Lauren shares how Earthship is a self-sustaining community composed of 75% full-time inhabitants, and 25% nightly rentals.  Located originally in Taos County, New Mexico, where the community still has to abide with building codes, Lauren also enumerates the principles of Earthship Biotecture.—Building with natural and repurposed materials—Thermal/solar heating and cooling—Solar and wind electricity—Water harvesting—Contained sewage treatment—Food production. Lauren goes into the details of these principles, like in building with natural and repurposed materials, she reveals that they use tires as building blocks, glass bottles, reclaimed metal, cardboard, and plastics.  In addition, as Earthships do not have air conditioning systems and HVAC, the community relies on the heat of the sun, tubes that draw in cool air from the back berm, and the layout of the greenhouse space and the living space to provide heat or cold air. Lauren also talks about how they harvest water, and the systems they put in place to conserve it—from using the water for shower, and then how the same water is used to grow organic food. Listen to the full episode to find out how she explains these intertwined principles of water harvesting, contained sewage treatment, and organic food production. We hope you enjoy!

Ep - 31 Ramona Soriano
Ramona Soriano is a long time friend and a very enlightened human being. Spritual Teacher by trade; she teaches and practices the arts of kundalini, meditation and sound bath healing. She recently left everything behind to take a 3 month hiatus in the California desert to sort of get away from city life, and begin anew. ⁠ ⁠Adam traveled to visit her and her new tribe in Joshua Tree the day before this podcast to enjoy a tour of the beautiful property where she has been residing and working. He then enjoyed a sound bath in a rock cave, and ended the evening (to early morning) by watching what Adam explained as "an incredible psychedelic meteor shower with a lesson in flying, family and chemistry". The following day they recorded the podcast and discussed her life and their healing experiences from the night before and years prior. You'll get to hear some deeply emotional, and moving moments from both of them...⁠ ⁠There are not a lot of people you meet in life that create an actual shift, a place of mindful experience and complete calmness. Ramona is that person.⁠ ⁠Please enjoy your day with this very inspirational podcast with Ramona Soriano and Adam Cooke.⁠ ⁠For more info on her business and how to book a session with Joshua Tree Alchemy + photos of the property / venue, please visit her site and follow our Cooke Collective feed on Telegram -  Links- IG / Tiktok / Telegram - @cookecollective @adamtcooke @funknastycooke  Ramona's Social - @kundalini_soul @joshuatree_alchemy Intro Music - Evan Hatfield @evan_hatfield.mp3 &

Ep. 30 - Del Jolly from Unlimited Sciences
Del Jolly is the motivated man at the forefront of Unlimited Sciences. The genesis of Unlimited Sciences began in 2013 when a group of mothers demanded access to medical cannabis for their children and started the nonprofit, Realm of Caring. Seven years later, they now have the world’s largest database on real-world cannabis usage and continue to help families improve their quality of life. Now they’re conducting psychedelic research using real world experiences combined with scientific data to improve our understanding of how psychedelic drugs, dosage, set and setting affect people’s experiences and lead to more harm-free and positive outcomes. The potential for psychedelic compounds as an alternative to pharmaceutical drugs is immense, but we need more research to advance the cause. Adam and Brandon had a great discussion with Del about the powerful movement behind psychedelics and the healing of traumatic brain injury, PTSD, and depression.  We hope you enjoy as much as we did.

Ep. 28 - Decriminalize Nature with Larry Norris, PHD
What an absolute honor to have Larry Norris, PHD on the Podcast! Adam and Larry speak about all the groundbreaking new laws and movements around the "Decriminalize Nature" organization. These guys are doing wonderful work. We are in such an amazing time as we move toward the decriminalization and legalization of psychedelics and entheogenic plants.  We discuss normalizing psychedelics as therapy, the rules surrounding these new laws, how experienced people like ourselves can be available for service to people who need help integrating their psychedelic experience. He also speaks a bit on the general thoughts about how the Native American tribes feel about the movement; especially in regards to Peyote.  We have a bigger role in life whether we like it or not; sharing these medicines and making sure more people have access, and are educated on them is our mission, we're happy that we can be here to help. It feels surreal. Enjoy.

Ryan is a professional skateboarder, musician, psychedelic adventurer and mindfulness advocate. We had a great catch up in this 2 part episode as we talk about the meaning of mindfulness, where does love come from, and what its been like for Ryan to blossom into this new person he has become, while still being in the trenches of the not-so-forgiving world of skateboarding.

Ep. 25 - The Positive Possibilities of Gene Therapy & Ai
We promise you this is not a conspiracy episode, its more of a hilarious stoner episode about futurism and how we can ultimately win using these technologies. The guys talk about the possibilities that lie within gene editing therapies like CRISPR and what the future of Ai could look like especially once its attached to the human brain. Its easy to think we're all screwed when we start to hear these types of technologies come out, but were not so sure its all bad.. How does gene editing fit into our lives spiritually, and are we playing God or just evolving? Will gene therapy help us live 30% longer? Are we living in a simulation and is cracking the DNA code just the beginning of figuring out who and what made us? and will an Ai chip like Neuralink ultimately help us coexist with Ai in a 100 years? We hope you enjoy! It was a fun one with lots of laughs. Links- IG / TikTok / Twitter - @cookecollective @adamtcooke @funknastycooke Intro Music - Evan Hatfield @evan_hatfield.mp3 &

Ep. 24 - Naming The Voice In Your Head
This episode is an important one, and we're very proud that we're able to bring it to light. It's something that sits inside of all of us, the asshole voice in our head that keeps us from achieving our highest and true self. The voice that keeps you from becoming what you are supposed to become. The voice that holds you back from everything you have ever dreamed of because it tells you that you're not good enough. Some of us are lucky enough to have a hold on it, others have no control of it, and some may have control of it in their professional lives but when it comes to their personal life they fall victim to the voice every time. We get it, and the first step is to recognize that it does not have full control. We're here to give some techniques that can help you communicate with that voice and tell it to shut the f'k up, and mind its own business. Enjoy.

Ep 18 Ryan Reyes - Overcoming Trauma With Psilocybin
In episode 18 Adam has a very heart opening conversation with professional skateboarder and psychedelic advocate Ryan Reyes. They discuss childhood trauma and what it was like growing up in troubled and drug addicted families. The discuss the overwhelming amount of skateboarders living with childhood trauma and how skateboarding has become the ultimate escape for them. Ryan talks about his path of healing through psychedelics, what it is like to be a modern professional skateboarder, and the challenges of dealing with the "old school" type thinking of many skateboarders and company owners. They also discuss the problem with discrimination, racism, and homophobia in skateboarding, and many other issues you wont want to miss.  Unfortunately there is still a very unhealthy old school mentality within the industry, its an unorganized and cut throat business with no room for anything that is not "cool" in their eyes. We really hope this podcast can begin to shed light on these issues and start to open up the doors for more people and companies to enter skateboarding in a positive light. We would love to see younger and older career skateboarders be respected and valued as people, not just the latest trend with a marketable look and dollar sign on their back.  We hope you enjoy.

Ep. 17 - The Good, The Bad, and The Addicted
When it comes to the taking of substances, you have to ask yourself this. Is the drug the problem or are you the problem? In this episode of The Cooke Collective Podcast, we discuss, among other interesting things, some of the mistakes you make when taking drugs and alcohol. We're not here to preach why you have to stop it entirely but to help shed some light on when to take it and when to stop. Taking substances usually are not dangerous if used properly, but fawning over the substances and misusing them can become deadly both mentally and physically. As a society we need to stop using drugs as a crutch and face our problems carefully. The beauty of these substances can only be found when you use them carefully and creatively, not as something you fall back on when things don’t go the way you plan Links- Instagram / TikTok / Twitch / Clubhouse - @cookecollective @adamtcooke @funknastycooke Intro Music - Evan Hatfield @evan_hatfield.mp3 & Key Takeaways: Intro (0:00) New year, new president, new day!!!
