Show Notes

In this episode, I chat with Hillary S. Webb, PhD. about her new book, The Friendliest Place In The Universe: Love, Laughter, and Stand-up Comedy in Berlin, what led her to Berlin, and grappling with depression, fear, and anger after the election of Donald Trump.

Hillary S. Webb, PhD. is a cultural anthropologist, author, and mixed-media storyteller. Her work explores how we human beings make meaning of this wonderful, terrible, ecstatic, startling, and often absurd world in which we live.

 Hillary gained an undergraduate degree in Journalism from New York University, an MA in Consciousness Studies from Goddard College, and a Ph.D. in Existential-Humanistic Psychology from Saybrook University.

 She’s worked professionally as a college professor, a journalist, and research director for an institute dedicated to studying the link between sound and altered states of consciousness.
