    Anne Newkirk Niven

    in Education

    Tonight Lady T welcomes Anne Newkirk Niven, publisher of Witches & Pagans, Sage Woman & Crone Magazines.
    Like most Pagans, Anne believes that there really never was a time when she *wasn’t* Pagan; it’s just that she didn’t have a name for it. As a child she had a Mystical Heart, connected to the Earth and eventually, as a young adult, discovered the Goddess through reading two books: The Mists of Avalon (which was a gateway for many in her generation) and Starhawk’s original version of The Spiral Dance.
    While trying to make a living in 1988, Anne was living in Point Arena, California, a tiny coastal community in the middle of nowhere; having given up pursuing a career in the Christian ministry (for both personal and thealogical reasons) she and her husband were operating a small print shop when she saw a copy of SageWoman and called the publisher, Lunaea Weatherstone, and asked to have the job of printing the magazine. Lunea's printer at the time had done a bad job for her sometimes printing pages upside down and backwards, so Anne & her husband got the job. After a long series of events, SageWoman came to be in Anne's hands,she ended up as Publisher, and has been doing this work ever since!

    Project Empowerment - Marc Bekoff

    in Self Help

    Project Empowerment is honored to have on author and Professor Marc Bekoff.  He is professor emeritus of ecology and evolutionary biology at the University of Colorado, Boulder.  He has worked alongside leading writers and activists including Jane Goodall, Peter Singer, and PETA cofounder Ingrid Newkirk.


    We’ll be discussing his new book Rewilding Our Hearts: Building Pathways of Compassion and Coexistence. 


    In wildlife conservation work, rewilding refers to habitat restoration and the creation of corridors between preserved lands to allow declining populations to rebound.  Marc Bekoff, one of the world’s most engaging animal experts and activists, here applies rewilding to human attitudes.  He argues that unless we rewild ourselves, becoming profoundly reconnected to nature and fundamentally shifting our consciousness, our conversation efforts will have but limited impact.


    Please join us as we’ll be discussing this a so much more.  You can learn more about his work at www.literati.net/authors/marc-bekoff

    Stephan Bonnar, Walel Watson & Gaston Reyno on Alchemist Radio This Week

    in Sports

    Tonight on Alchemist Radio, your hosts Bryan Levick and Adam Conklin will speak with three very important members of the Titan FC card that will take place on Friday night in Newkirk, OK.


    Leading things off will be lightweight prospect Gaston Reyno who will make his professional MMA debut against David Nelson on the preliminary portion of the card. Reyno hails from Uruguay and is known for his exceptional Muay Thai striking skills, but there is a lot more to this young fighter. An avid soccer fan, Reyno is also very grateful for the experiences he has had thus far in his MMA career. He trains alongside fellow Titan FC fighter Anthony “Sharkbait” Gutierrez at Grindhouse MMA in Kansas City. Reyno has promised to put on an exciting performance to the fans and Titan FC officials.


    Also fighting on Friday night on the Titan FC 28 card is former UFC competitor, Walel “The Gazelle” Watson. A teammate of UFC women’s bantamweight contender Liz Carmouche at the San Diego Combat Academy, Watson had a brief run in the UFC from October of 2011 to September of 2012 going 1-3 in his four fights inside the Octagon. Since then he has gone 2-2, but is looking to make a statement against William Joplin on Friday night and begin his road back to the UFC. He has a professional record of 11-7 with 3 wins by knockout and 8 via submission.


    UFC Hall of Famer Stephan Bonnar joined the show to discuss the upcoming Titan FC 28 card and what it was like working alongside Firas Zahabi and Tony Luftman in the CBS Sports Network booth for Titan FC 27. Bonnar will go over some of the exciting match-ups that are scheduled to take place this Saturday night.


    The show begins promptly at 7pm EST/4pm PST

    Jeff Aronson, Kalib Starnes & Anthony Birchak on Alchemist Radio This Week

    in Sports

    Tonight on Alchemist Radio Bryan Levick and Adam Conklin will discuss last night’s TUF Nations Finale which saw Tim Kennedy defeat Michael Bisping via unanimous decision. They will also discuss the debut of TUF 19: Edgar vs. Penn which features 8 middleweights and 8 light heavyweights. They will also preview this weekend's UFC on Fox 11 card.


    Titan FC CEO Jeff Aronson will kick things off and explain why he decided to move Titan FC 28 from April 25th in Kansas City to May 16th in Newkirk, OK. We will also go over some of the changes made to the card and how Titan FC’s international fans will now be able to view the preliminary bouts on-line.


    Kalib Starnes has been so desperate find and keep fights over the past couple of years that he has competed at middleweight, light heavyweight and heavyweight. He will face Dave Herman in the co-main event of Titan FC 28 in a heavyweight showdown. Herman was last seen losing his fourth straight and being cut from the UFC roster while Starnes is riding a four fight winning streak.


    At MFC 38, Anthony Birchak was experiencing a resounding range of emotions. He was chosen to face Tito Jones for the opportunity to become the first ever MFC bantamweight champion, the fans selected their fight to be the main event, he witnessed the birth of his son and he buried one of his best friends. Now he heads into MFC 40 with a clear mind and will face Kevin Croom in his first title defense. Once again MFC is leaving it up to the fans to decide the main event as Birchak’s fight is up against two other title fights for the right to close the show.


    The show will start promptly at 7pm EST/4pm PST
