DEEP CONVERSATIONS IN THE SHAMAN'S DEN, VOLUME 1
by Frank Moore
Chapter 17 - Michael Peppe - Part 2
ABOUT THE BOOK
Frank Moore’s Shaman’s Den streamed live on the internet almost every Sunday night from 1998 until Frank’s death in 2013. The Shaman’s Den was a 2 1/2-hour variety show featuring in-studio concerts by bands from around the world and in-depth conversations about politics, art, music, and life.
In this volume, the first in a series, Frank and his guests explore a wide-open field of topics and present new, alternative ways of looking at everything from current economic and political situations to personal relationships.
