Taira's Radio Show Series:

DNA of Carl Jung: Depth Psychology Radio Interview Series

"Inside Out" was launched on KPFZ in 2001 as an interview and talk show on psychology, philosophy, metaphysics and alternative healing practices. The one-hour live conversation reflecting personal and public perspectives from the inside out airs live every Wednesday from 2:00 pm until 3:00 pm, and is rebroadcast  on Mondays at 1:00 p.m. We use call-ins only on selected shows, as they tend to distract from the impact of the interviews.  Other series and shows have included, "It's Your Business" (interviews with business and professionals in Lake County); and "Surfin' the Casbah", interviews by Skype with Jesse Aizenstat, as he traveled throughout the Middle East with his surfboard

In March, 2009, “Inside Out” initiated a series on the “DNA of Carl Jung”-- conversations about Carl Jung and depth psychology with outstanding Jungian analysts, therapists, researchers, writers and teachers.  Stephen Aizenstat, Ph.D., Founder and President of Pacifica Graduate Institute, (specializing in depth psychology) launched the show with his book, Dream Tending; and  reappeared after publishing Imagination and Medicine: The Future of Healing in an Age of Neuroscience, coedited with Jungian Psychoanalyst Robert Bosnak, who pioneered a radically different methodology called, “Cyber Dreaming,” based on dream and alchemical research. Professor Bosnak was also interviewed on the show in 2010.    

"Inside Out,” morphed into the new “Taira St. John Show,”  in December 2011 following a name change of the show by station management. The show switched its focus Peace and Transcendence with many social healers and other transformational leaders working toward
inner and outer peace.
