Astrologer Adam Sommer joins the podcast to talk about Pluto, mythology, bitcoin, the metaverse, and their relationship to astrology.
Adam was visiting Colorado in November, and we decided to get together and record a conversation about a bunch of different astrological topics we had been thinking about lately.
The result was a pretty sweeping discussion about a variety of different topics, although the main one that we kept coming back to is astrology and technology.
This is a more casual and less focused episode than usual, but we had a lot of fun and discussed a number of interesting topics.
Adam is the host of the Exploring Astrology Podcast, which you can find on his website:
