The van dwelling minstrel, Lipbone Redding, spends a lot of time with himself, and has a deep archive of recorded stories, and music.
Join him on a worldwide adventure, into the heart of happiness.
Lipbone records and shares music, stories, thoughts, and commentary on love, humanity and the meaning of life. He asks friends and strangers to “tell a story” and documents the sounds of his own life.
In this episode, rumors are flying about the Corona virus outbreak here in Mexico. Should I stay or should I go?
I am digging deep into the demo pile and pulling out things I never thought anyone would listen to. Turns out they're not that bad.

Also, a story by the perennial hatmaker / hippy philosopher, Guy Samuel.
In this episode, I've taken up temporary residence in a safe and tranquil space in the swamps of Florida, surrounded by frogs, birds, crickets and other wildlife. Songs and talk of the end of history and the beginning of something new.
