Season 01 Ep 04 Sitting With Your Beloved Sourdough
Let us scratch the anthropocentric view of life again in our new episode! During the pandemic, many of you grew monsters in the fridge: homemade sourdough. I'll tell you about the secrets of our countryside traditions. How they used to feed these monsters even after midnight. Today, scientists are studying the dirt that makes this possible. A fascinating being will tell you how important healthy soil is: for your brain, your gut and your immune system, and also apparently for mental health. An episode teeming with microorganisms. Let's visit all these microscopically tiny friends that form more cells in our body than we have human ones. How human are our bodies? Or how alien?

Season 01 Ep 03 Sitting With Your Body Mates
After "deconstructing" our anthropocentric perspective of a tree and fungi in episode 2,  let's now do it with ourselves! After this episode, you will look at your face with completely new eyes. Caress your cheek, take a selfie: you are never alone! Your skin is like the surface of a planet where little aliens live. They are nice, somewhat cute and keep your pores unclogged. But they could be an endangered species. And that's why species extinction concerns us up close to our skin!

Season 01 EP 02 Sitting With A Tree
Season 01 EP 02 Sitting With A Tree
Enjoy this more relaxed summer edition to learn to shift your perspective. Walk with me and my beagle Bilbo into the forest, where we will sit with a tree. In the beginning, it could sound strange. But believe me: after this episode, you will be able to look at a tree with different eyes as well as at your next pizza! Changing perspectives works toward all aspects of life. And it's a skill that everybody has. Perhaps you've only forgotten to use it? 00:00 Intro 00:39 Imagine You Are A Pizza 13:20 Sitting With A Tree 30:35 Are We Actually Star Stuff? 40:55 Outro - 42:57 Website, Newsletter (free) & Community (support my work)  https://naturematchcuts.net  Music: Intense Dark Action Orchestra by (Justin Williams) DeVern, CC Attribution 3.0 Licence Snoring & Sniffing: Bilbo von Butterblum
