#43 –A High-End Jumble Of Words: Animal’s Other Senses, Age Of Consent & Immortality With TJ Cummings

This week Mike talks with good friend & returning guest of the show; TJ Cummings! Last time she was on (Ep 2), they primarily discussed TJ’s travels around Asia but this time it’s a chat with a whole amalgamation of topics, flitting between several and having a laugh while doing so – this one is definitely for those wanting a fun chat that doesn’t touch on anything specific but has moments of clarity within!

There are far too many topics to count in this episode, but a few things discussed are: immortality, the age of consent** & homosexuality, traumatic events that can affect sexuality, having children/adopting along with what can affect a child’s social behaviour from changes earlier in life, our perception of nature, how wi-fi signals affect bees, the many different senses of animals, how religion & the energy of life intertwine, animal language and so much more (also be sure to look out for Mike’s human/tree metaphor)!

**As mentioned in the intro, TJ says Vatican City has no age of consent, however upon further research, it appears it used to be 12, but is now 18**

In case you missed it, last week Mike spoke with Junior of We The Lifers, an alternative apparel company whose goal is to keep people proud of being “alternative”! Part 1 was about what a “lifer” actually is, as well as many other topics surrounding an alternative lifestyle including heavy music and people’s issues with “screamo”, how the stigma surrounding tattoos & piercings has changed over the years and more, while in part 2 Junior & Mike chat about controversial & drug-related tattoos, the dangers of fame, the ridiculousness of homophobia as well as many other topics within!
