Welcome to Episode 31. In this episode we drill down into the world of ancient Greek healing. Was Hippocrates the father of medicine? Hardly. He was preceded by a demi-god, a son of Apollo named Asklepios. Asklepios, who flourished 800 years before Hippocrates, specialized in cures that reset a patient’s age. They were akin to today’s breakthroughs…

Welcome to Episode 30 where we survey ancient war and how it formed the Greek notion of the ideal hero. Thousands of years ago heroes were, without exception, brave young men. They expected to die young, valiantly and with the bodies of those they’d slain lying at their feet. In this episode we contrast ancient war involving the gods to modern, sec…
 
What happens when virtual reality co-ops scent for immersive experiences in intentionally manipulative ways to help people become more capable, more at peace, and better equipped to navigate real life?

Jacobo Grinberg-Zylberbaum (1946-??) In 2019, I told my friend Miguel Romero about the little-known Mexican parapsychologist Dr. Jacobo Grinberg Zylberbaum, but we could find little about him online, except for a few sensationalized articles in Spanish. This year, a documentary on his life, work, and mysterious disappearance in 1994 at the age of 4…
 
Why are the richest and famous-est simply not bathing? And why are they running their mouths about it when they should be running their faucets?

There have been some events happening in the world that can be smelled and then thought about: The Fenty ParFUM: What it smells like. What it's made of. What's the deal with that logo.

We all remember navigating the mall through the huge beauty floors (because you always had to enter the mall through a department store for some reason) where your friendly fragrance sales associates would be demo-ing the latest, pungiest (you know what I mean), designer-iest fragrances. Well, we have always wondered what it's like to have one of t…

The smell of love is not quite the same thing as the scent of lust. The latter is more... slutty for lack of a more polite word. But along all the lines of all things amorous and sessual, the scents we associate with attraction, sex, and love are often not quite the odors present in either context. And sometimes they are. So that's what we're talki…
 
Welcome to EPISODE 27 -- The Dishonored Sky Gods Zeus did not have the sky to himself, and shared it with the sun god Helios, the moon goddess Selene, and others. This arrangement worked well until an even greater force than Zeus came on the scene. This episode tells the story of the sky gods who were bested by science. That was a new way to explai…

So you thought targeted ads would stop at just your eyes and your ears? No, they're coming for your nose as well — in fact, they've been there and you may or may not have even been aware of it.

Welcome to Episode 26, THE THREE HELENS This episode features the story of Helen of Troy, also known as the woman whose "face launched a thousand ships.” She was beautiful, but ended up being a pawn of the gods in the Trojan War.

Get to kno…
 
EP 25: You Tell Apollo He’s A Myth … Welcome to Episode 25. This episode explores whether the gods are real or -- as scholars state -- myths. In this unique podcast we take a different approach, daring to examine whether we’ve all been misled. What if the Greek gods simply walked? What if they tired of the affairs and the squabbling that was a cons…
 
If you've watched any beauty YouTube (or Instagram) in the past decade you're likely well aware of Huda Beauty. But the brand's co-founder Mona Kattan also has an extremely high-profile (perhaps the highest) side hustle with KAYALI, a very fancy fragrance brand. Perhaps you've heard about it from Tynan absolutely losing it over Sweet Diamond Pink P…
 
… Welcome to Podcast 24. This episode excavates the story of Medusa. I say ‘excavate’ because today we think of Medusa as a monster whose glance could turn men to stone. But there’s much more to her story. It’s been buried. So first we shovel aside the stones and debris. What do we find? Before she was a monster, she was a beautiful girl. While a t…
 
We are discussing Tynan's most loathed topic: deodorant. And in an attempt to talk about anything but this topic, he deftly veers the discussion around to: pimple-popping (videos and IRL), scabies, ballsacks, natural beauty's foibles, the clothes that make B.O. even worse, sunscreen (again), sexual handshakes, and of course the deodorants we actual…
 
Everyone knows that when you start smelling that sweetly tropical scent of sunscreen on everyone's skin, summer is officially here. But what is that particular scent that we all seem to just know? We do a not-that-deep dive into our favorite sunscreen brands' telltale fragrances and get into what our favorite classic summer fragrances are for getti…

There are certain fragrances that carry connotations of the types of personalities who wear them loud and proud. And for those unfortunate few fragrances who did nothing wrong other than hang around the wrong crowd of certain men about town... they have come to be the aromatic warning waft for the fuccboi™. For reasons unknown to all but the market…
 
... Welcome to Episode 22, SATYRS & A CYCLOPES You’ve probably heard of satyrs, but not thought beyond their strange appearance. They are the combination of 4 or 5 animals, including humans. The big difference between satyrs and humans, though, is in their approach toward life. In this episode, satyrs collide with a one-eyed giant called a cyclopes…
 
"Skin scents" are a newly trendy fragrance aesthetique that we can all thank/blame the people who brought you 'no-makeup makeup' and con culture. Just kidding (maybe)! We've had a vague idea of what skin scents are—transparent, musky, "natural"-smelling, non-perfume-y fragrances that mold to the wearer's skin chemistry—but not what's actually in th…
 
In this episode I’m joined by the hosts of the Propagated Podcast, Daniel and Frankie.

“Clean” is the biggest beauty buzzword in recent history, but what does it mean? Rosie Jane Johnston of By Rosie Jane joins us to help demystify how loosely the term is thrown around, yet has come to define the current era of makeup, skincare, and yes, fragrance. By Rosie Jane launched in 2010 as a "clean" fragrance brand, before the term became th…

Just when the province of Nova Scotia was adjusting to life in a pandemic, they were hit with the tragedy of something almost unknown to Canadians.

It was suggested that I restart the “popup” idea in order to get back to posting shows more often. These programs are about 30 minutes in length and posted within a day of the interview. Susan‘s latest book is entitled Cosmic Witch, and we discussed the events, ideas, and research that led to its writing. Susan sees definite connections between par…
 
Addictions are the hedonistic and sometimes dangerous expression of our indulgences, so it should be of little surprise that scents are a huge indicator, enabler, and even keeper of our fondness for these experiences that may be toxic in nature—but definitely not in this fragrance concept. That's the sweet spot that Akro hits, a new perfume brand f…
 
... Welcome to Episode 21, Oedipus & the Sphinx.. This episode features the story of Oedipus, an extraordinarily tragic figure in Greek mythology who tries to do his best, but is bested by the Fates.

You may have noticed how the co-hosts of this podcast audibly cringe every time we talk about a fragrance that is marketed as an "oriental" scent. It feels icky and wrong and way tone-deaf. Because it is. But why does the fragrance industry continue using such an outdated term in such a blasé matter-of-fact way? It's not like there aren't a ton of …

How do you apply fragrance? Well, that is a many-pronged question, pondered for many years and with varying degrees of authority on the matter. Tl;dr: it depends. How far do you want your scent to emanate? How many enemies do you have? Why doesn't perfume ever last as long as you want it to, no matter how much you douse yourself? (That we can help …
