This is Part 1 of a double feature in preparation for the upcoming total solar eclipse on 21 August; Part 2 will follow later this week. Featured guest Barry Snyder crosses over into the spiritual realm with a discussion of the Fire element, first from his perspective as a US Forest Service fire watcher in the coastal wilderness just south of the California-Oregon state line, and then from his perspective as a spiritual seeker within the astrological framework. Also included is an overview of the Perseid meteor shower and an observance of the 72nd anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Benjamin the Donkey makes a brief appearance, and Sequitur theme music is by Zympht.
