Fall/Winter 2018 – Welcome Home!  We’re excited to invite you in for a glimpse of our Burning Man experience. We’ll be celebrating creativity in all it’s forms from art to architecture, transportation to transformation, and unique ways of building community through gifting and radical self-expression. There are many aspects of the Burning Man experience —  being a temporary city of 70,000 inhabitants gathering each year in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert — it would be impossible to explain it all. But with the help of our friend, campmate, and professional tour guide in the default world, Rah-Rah, we’ll be guiding you on a journey guaranteed to be both educational and entertaining. You’ll hear from a variety of Burners, from around the globe, sharing their personal connections of what the Playa provided them.

We have an exclusive interview with one of the poets Tave’s very own daughter Lucinda Drake. Our DYK segment features the benefits of probiotic drinks, which in-turn inspired us to assemble an original chilled health concoction consisting of homemade pickled vegetables, apple cider vinegars and a sparkling rejuvelac broth. Surprises await! Ready to feel rejuvenated, inspired and entertained ! We give you “Generation Z for Zeal Soup” Send it! Brian & Tavé Sent! ...

Spring 2018 – We’re trying something new for Season 2! 3 shows,  (Spring, Summer, Fall/Winter)… also new for 2018 @PEACELOVEANDSOUP on Instagram. On this episode we’re focusing on Storytellers!

BABA WAGUE @: babawague.wordpress.com and www.kofalen.org He talks about the importance of storytelling, and it’s uses to educate as well as entertain, and how this age old tradition was handed down for generations in Africa. Originally from Mali, Wague has been living in Portland, Oregon for many years with his wife and daughters. His eldest, Penda Diakite, is also an author and artist, as well as a clothing designer.  She reads us her original story “ I Lost My Tooth in Africa” written when she was just 12 years old. PendaDiakite.com and pendawear.com Baba Wague also teaches us how to make Tiga Dege Na or West African Peanut Soup. Our “Did You Know” segment will be all about peanuts!
