Designed for the slightly geeky and curious souls who seek a deeper understanding, Spiritual AF Sundays invites you to join our exploration of spirituality, religion, and politics. We go beyond the shallow back-and-forth on social media and provide thought-provoking insights that inspire personal growth and transformation. In each episode, we challenge societal norms and assumptions, tackle hot-button topics like politics and artificial intelligence, and delve into subjects like magic and witchcraft, self-improvement, and more. We believe that spirituality and real-world issues are intertwined, and are not afraid to ask the difficult questions about how one affects the other. With weekly episodes, each around 30 minutes, we bring you engaging discussions and interviews with guests from diverse backgrounds. Whether you’re a seasoned spiritual seeker or just starting your journey, this podcast offers a fresh perspective and invites you to expand your horizons.

Have you ever wondered how spirituality and politics are interconnected? Or why we become so polarized by the media? In this week's episode of Spiritual AF Sundays, we bring on Marc Wendt, Mens Wisdom Coach and Transformation Agent Provocateur, to explore these questions and more as we dive into the complex world of politics and belief systems.
We'll take a closer look at how breaking free from social conditioning can help us see things in a new light, and why modern political discourse often falls short of productive debate. And speaking of debate, we'll discuss the difference between healthy debate and toxic arguing.
But perhaps most importantly, we'll delve into the concept of truth - what it is, how it's defined, and whether it can be both objective and relative at the same time. And to wrap things up, we'll introduce you to Democracy 2.0 - a new approach to democracy that could revolutionize the way we think about politics. So join us for an eye-opening conversation on spirituality, politics, and everything in between!
