September 9, 2023life-is-feeling / shownotesElizabeth Hobson (aka AntiFemBot) and mother of two boys, who calls herself an anti-feminist Gender Equality Activist shares with us in an extraordinarily compelling episode 26 – part one of two – originally recorded on the 3rd of September 2023. Elizabeth’s areas of particular interest include the family and fathers’ rights, domestic abuse, MGM, feminism, and freedom. “Elizabeth wants to end the Sex War – artificially constructed by feminists – and pursue a more just society based on classical liberal values such as liberty, equality and meritocracy” – extract from Bio, link below.

Letter from a Listener – for Episode 25 Response from Elizabeth : “I’m a pussycat! I take ideas deeply seriously though. I entirely agree with you re: ‘ism’, it’s profoundly associated with common enemy identity politics presently. And at the moment I think that there are forces afoot that desperately citizens need to unite to defend ourselves against. I appreciate that in a way that sounds like common enemy politics – and sure there are individuals and groups who are instrumental in the redistribution of resources upwards, and growing surveillance and infringement on our liberties and abilities to lead meaningful lives with solid relationships… But I believe that the individuals responsible for pushing these things are irrelevant. Take them all out and more would manifest. We were told that liberal democracies relied on informed and engaged citizenry (most clearly and beautifully by the US founding fathers), but we failed to take responsibility. Power is addictive and corrupting, we have known this from classic philosophy, from experience, and we know now from psychological research. We can’t expect to simply vote for representatives and let them do their jobs. We can’t expect to hand over responsibility to experts, with no meaningful oversight of who they’re serving, and trust their advice. We know this. We have the instruction. We have the evidence. But we ignore it. Blood, sweat, tears it came with. But we ignore it. We say we love our children but we won’t protect their future. We pity those living in explicitly authoritarian regimes, but we won’t be the beacon of hope that could encourage them because it takes some effort. And I believe that the fundamental basis of good societies is individual personal virtue. And virtue makes our lives personally bearable despite the inevitable suffering and injustice that all people will experience. So I would like to talk to you about that, if you’re up for it. On a personal level, I’ve never been a bad person but I’ve been weak and less than I could be because I refused to live in truth. I came to the place (after a decade of medication and therapy and wanting to die) where I realised that my refusal to feel the fear and enter my personal desert anyway was an inevitable mortal threat. I understood that I didn’t know what was in the desert, and that I didn’t have any reason to assume I would cope, but that out there I might just find life. And I did. I found I’m exponentially stronger than I ever imagined. I found that I am more good and principled than I would think reasonable to expect. And I found a beauty amongst the tragedy that is worth the pain.” Elizabeth Hobson – 11:50, 18.08.2023 – @AntiFemBot Apple PodcastsSpotifyDeezerPodcast IndexAmazon MusicYouTube Private Listeners’ Group SHOW ARCHIVE Credits Musical contribution: BotanyBay YouTube Listing Life is Feeling – Counting the Ways […]

The things that are in fact within our reach – the VALUES that we as people are actively adopting now.

What does it really mean, to move capital, people, and knowledge to where the problems really are and what are the benefits being realized now? What are the opportunities that present themselves – today – as we approach the ultimate ideal of sustainable living?

Wouldn’t you like to know which episodes have done the best so far. Stick around till the end to find out – on this the 26th of May, 2023. The New cover design in purple that you now see in your player is by Roselyne Cazazian – an artist currently located in Montreal, Canada. Roselyne does design and illustration, also for Books. She describes or categorizes her work as Vintage, glam & a touch of whimsy – and that works for me. This particular art piece in purple is called “Night Spirit” – a rather recognisable piece I’d say that fits well to the mood that I imagine for my show right now. With a bit of luck; I might even get the chance to introduce you to Roselyne one day soon, to share with us a little about the things that inspire her work. This show format is still experimental, and that means that I am still – as I said feeling out the resonance that comes from the episodes, how it all makes me feel, and I am really curious to see how it all unfolds. Top Three to Date The show episodes that have done the best so far are: Conversations with Hamid, of Chapati Berlin – hand and heart #5 Feminine Role in the Arts: dominant stereotypes, sexism, objectification, guilt as a weapon #4 Who are you and what is yours: Ai, IP, Trust – and the Living Artist – Alexander Klebe #12 Credits Cover Artist: Roselyne Cazazian – @rozkazaz Instagram Backing music courtesy of: cruisechen, psychedelic rock impro. for “life is feeling” – @wwhatissleep Instagram Life is Feeling – Counting the Ways […]

The show today is multilingual, and we focus on the human interface with new technologies within the care giving industry – auf Deutsch – die menschliche Schnittstelle zu neuen Technologien in der Pflegebranche. The episode speaks to what it is like – to shift a career away from a large strictly hierarchical work structure, towards a smaller organisation that offers much clearer oversight, and more appreciation of individual work. Where does heart and humanness factor in when all these things come together. The conversations today tacitly pose the question – as to whether – what could be seen as abstract technological advances offer the real prospect of actually bringing us closer to our humanity and to each other. Show Guest: Nadine Reussel-Distler Works: PulsNetz.de | LinkedIn Life is Feeling Counting the Ways explores in this episode with yet another true to life dimension of feeling that uniquely defines the human experience – by also confronting us with what it is not. Our guest for today’s episode says – in German “Nichts ist beständiger als der Wandel” – Nothing is more constant than change – Human Resource Management, Program Management and Health-care – count to her credentials – and it is with great pleasure that I present to you today dearest friend and study colleague Ms. Nadine Distler.

Der Wunsch, in der Masse unterzugehen, ist eines der Dinge, die Kat in der „großen, bösen Stadt“ hält – die Freiheit, das zu sein, was sie sein möchte, und ihre eigene Blase zu finden. In dieser seltenen Begegnung sprechen wir über das Erlebnis, fotografiert zu werden, und darüber, wie “zusätzliche Betrachter” das Gefühl und die Haltung vor der Kamera beeinflussen. Besondere Momente, die es zwischen Fotograf und Model gibt, die nicht für jeden bestimmt sind – und das beliebte Narrativ über “die starke Frau”, die sich zwar längst emanzipiert hat – auch wenn manche Männer das einfach noch nicht gecheckt haben. Wir wagen es, einzutauchen, die Wahrnehmung zu erkunden, die andere von „OnlyFans“ (Platform) haben – “wie die Männer mich dazu zwingen”, die Quelle der bestehenden Nachfrage und ihre natürlichen Belohnungen neu zu überdenken. “Die Unterdrückung der Klinge” als der eigentliche Grundgedanke hinter dieser ganzen Begegnung stand jedoch weniger im Vordergrund – hat uns aber dazu gebracht, das Phänomen mit der Fetischisierung von Körperhaaren zu vergleichen. Wir untersuchen, was das alles bedeutet und wie es sich auswirkt. Natürlich diskutierten wir auch über den Einfluss, den diese Art von Arbeit auf junge Menschen und die Gesellschaft als Ganzes hat – zusammen mit dem Paradoxon des inhärenten kommerziellen Wertes, der sich aus der Schaffung und Pflege von Tabus und irrealen Knappheiten ergibt. Aus der Perspektive eines unabhängigen Podcasters witzeln wir auch ernsthaft darüber, dass die wichtigste Fähigkeit für ein Leben am Mikrofon, ist eigentlich die Bereitschaft, etwas ganz anderes zu tun, als die meisten Menschen erwarten würden.

The desire to blend in with the crowd, is one of the things that keeps Kat in the big bad city – the freedom to be whatever she wants to be and to find her own bubble. In this rare encounter we discuss the experience of being photographed, and how “extra viewers” affect the feel and attitude in front of the camera. Special moments that exist between photographer and model that are not for everyone – and the popular narrative of “the strong woman”, who themselves though long emancipated – some men simply don’t know it yet. We unravel the perception that others have of onlyfans – “how the men make me do it” – and rethink the source of existing demand – and its natural rewards. “The oppression of the blade” and fetishising body hair – the first impulse behind this encounter – features a little less prominently. We explore what it all means, and how it all plays out. Naturally, we also discussed the perceived influence of this type of work on young minds, and on society as a whole – together with paradoxes around the inherent commercial value – that itself emerges from creating and nurturing taboos – and from an independent podcaster’s perspective, how the essential skill for a life on the microphone is not the ability to speak but a readiness to listen..

Backing music: Botany Bay.  Intro Text – Ian Antonio Patterson Hello, my name is Ian Antonio Patterson, your host for Life is “Feeling – Counting the Ways”, where we explore non-scripted -some of the secrets, insights and lived-experiences – of real people. Self-sponsored and independent – the show offers a multi-dimensional multi-lingual listening experience – and is my invitation to you – to garner for yourself – everything that could be interpreted as practical advice from the skills, experience, values and attitudes of the compelling personalities featured here __ I invite you to further explore the topical themes __ and on your own in your own sweet time, reflect on how all of these play out in our day to day lives. The show promises no answers to anything, and you get to decide for yourself – what works for you, ___ you get to form your own truths, and if you do find something new, that was of value to you, and want to give something back – all I would ask you to do is to give it away – as in share the show or episode with a friend. So, what CAN you expect from this episode today? It cuts to the very core of why I do this whole show. Long form content, my preferred approach – distinguishes itself from platitudes and soundbites – mindfully articulating the contexts at hand – and doing proper justice to my guests, the themes and to you.. You get to download, pause, stop, rewind, revisit, skip forward, listen again and again – as many times as you need – Add free – the way it was meant to be. Our guest for today says: “I love to be out in the world, over the years I’ve written 4 books about my experiences – one of them twice, first in German, then in English: “Begegnung mit dem Schamanen/ Encounter with the Shaman“, followed by “Sundance“; and “Nur Mut” ”- all of them first person accounts, and generally positive.” In todays Episode We go on to talk about 5:32 – the feel of silk 8:36 – sense of beauty and gratitude 14:35 – defining “feeling” in the context of the show 18:00 – love and fear, and fear as a life philosophy 29:00 – owning your voice – and curating your own story 31:00 – the notion of “influencer” 33:18 – approach to writing 37:30 – female sexuality: through the lens of fear, love intuition & consent 45:00 – alcohol as a crutch 49:00 – the big scary animal 52:00 – soulless love and the contract 57:00 – voice, consent, and democracy 59:00 – rape by deception 1:02:00 – consent and the checkbox 1:08:00 – freedom of movement 1:14:00 – generosity without expectation or agenda 1:21:00 – where the devil lives Our esteemed guest for the day; Ms. Angelika Hansen. Todays Episode is sponsored and brought to you by: yours Truly in association with English Coach Podcast – Living the Language and iAntonio.media.  Backing music provided in parts by Botany bay under creative commons license and at the recommendation of my friend and colleague Laura Dee – who featured in Episode 4 of the show. The cover art for the Episode was provided by Polina – who came through splendidly with her contribution to this show. I have the greatest respect for the artistic contributions, and exchanges that help to support the show – and She says that I can tell you the following: “I’m an illustrator from Ukraine who creates whimsical artworks 🙂 I’m currently living in Lviv, the western part of Ukraine and I had to move here with my family from Kharkiv due to Russian invasion.” She goes on to say that – “We still brave and creative even without electricity!” I happened upon Polina’s art while browsing Instagram one day and was moved by it. Contacted her and here we are today. What this artistic illustration means to me – considering its purely accidental origin and especially at this time, is its inherent defiant quality that appears fly in the face of oppression, and tacitly speaks truth to power. It is in itself and within this context today – a representation of the importance of independent media – taking ownership of your own voice and articulating it equally – amidst the noise of all the others who would seek to influence and move you to their agenda. The bold unapologetic attitude of this piece speaks to my intention for the show – in the same way I would implore you to give yourself permission to sometimes consider other sources of insight and inspiration – other than the ones that are fed to you in popular paid media. #IndependentPodcasting is all about authenticity, inclusion, balanced conversations with ideas and individual choice – and in so being – a pillar of any democratic ideal. I want you to take note of the illustration, as it will quite likely feature again on future episodes of this flavour. Feel free to tell me what you think – and be sure to check out Polina’s work for yourself – link in the shownotes.   And last but by no means least our guest – Angelika Hansen.

To what extent is the role of an artist charged with purging or correcting random fantasy? Today we talk about managing dominant stereotypes, notions of sexism, objectification, and instances where guilt is inflicted as a weapon. We discuss the importance of safe spaces and hiding places – empathy for and solidarity with friends, work colleagues and co-creators. Our guest for this episode 4 is Laura Dee – seasoned singer, song writer and Educator – and the aim of todays episode is not to just talk about these things – but to tacitly offer meaningful, true to life strategies, that have been shown to work for others, and might be useful to anyone struggling with these things on the stage of life.   Life is Feeling – today – in a non-moralising way – offers what COULD be considered advice: for aspiring female performing artists – or any performing artist for that matter who would have it. Not from me, naturally but from someone who feels it and knows it. – for anyone who runs the risk of being – whether by accident or design – profiled, misrepresented, appropriated, or relegated – and anyone who simply thinks that in this context – they simply don’t have a choice… “Life is Feeling – counting the ways” is a self-sponsored – independent podcast, brought to you in association with www.iAntonio.media and its somewhat more conservative sister show English Coach Podcast – Living the Language.

Let me warn you though – as I threatened to do in episode one of the show, since most of my listenership is multi-lingual, today’s episode is presented in German – with a little surprise at the end. I really hope you like the show – and without further ado – on with the show. Show Guest: Natalia Gubergritz Instagram YouTube listing – of Audio Episode 2 – Life is Feeling – counting the ways […]

Most of my listeners are multi-lingual – but depending on the level of feedback I get – time, and resources – I might opt to in the future include summary interpretations in English. There might also be a little Jamaican sometimes. The name of the show is “Life is Feeling” – and this episode exists for one purpose – to give a little preview of some of the conversations to come. The framing of each episode will always feature a sense of that outlook – lightly guiding our discourse. Full Show Description Non-scripted cordial and playful by design – the show episodes are not intended to be debates – and are expected to unfold in ways that even I myself cannot anticipate. A place where we are all allowed to change our minds, speak from the wisdom of our own experiences for ourselves, agree to disagree and essentially offers no answers to anything. You get to take from it what you will. Whatever the case it works for us, so if you are curious as to how these conversations play out – or are moved to give meaning to what you think about the show – free to use the feedback link on the official showpage at www.LifeIsFeeling.com . Subscribe or follow the show – if you don’t want to miss it – from anywhere you like listen to podcasts. […]

In a world where technology and social media dominate our daily lives, it can sometimes be difficult to find meaningful conversations that tackle the important issues we face as human beings. “Life is Feeling – Counting the Ways” means to fly in the face of a proverbial Ads-driven-paradigm ruled by popular paid content, in that seeks neither to sell you anything, nor to pretend to provide any answers to anything whatsoever. Within an Ai-driven-paradigm, the show also seeks to help to differentiate us as human beings, by presenting real stories – as evidenced by the lived experience.

With its diverse range of perspectives, and engaging conversations, this independent podcast wants to cut against the graintenderly and unapologetically – and offers a little something for everyone.
