Interview with John Butler - Shepheard Walwyn Podcast

This week we are speaking with John Butler, one of our most popular authors at Shepheard Walwyn and perhaps the most unlikely YouTube star, you can ever hope to meet. John is a retired farmer and is well into his 80s. He published The Wonders of Spiritual Unfoldment in 2008 which tells his life story and shares the realisations he experienced during a lifetime of meditation.

What’s so special about this rhino? Find out why and about Shirley Galligan’s mission to inform our next generation of conservationists… Munu is a story of hope in the face of adversity. As one of the world’s rarest black rhinoceros, Munu was tragically blinded and could not have survived in the wild if it was not for the  White Lion Foundation who rescued him, offering him a sanctuary and lifetime care in South Africa. His story, as the most special rhino in the world, will appeal to children, with its humorous tone as well as promoting the charity’s ethos of integrity and kindness.

In this podcast we meet Kenny Jamieson, the author of a truly amazing book “A World In Two Minds – Why we must change our thinking to change our future”. It’s a book written to help us make sense of the seeming chaos around us. He argues that by utilising insights from neuroscience, philosophy, science and psychology to name a few, we can renew our minds, change our thinking and change our future.

Interview with Anthony Werner - Part 2 - Shepheard Walwyn Podcast

In Part II of the interview with Anthony Werner, the publisher who has led Shepheard Walwyn since 1979, we look into some of the other works in the Shepheard Walwyn catalogue. The jigsaw or tapestry that is Shepheard Walwyn today starts with economic and social justice that Anthony learned from his father in South Africa. However, he has also published many other works that explore related themes such as ecology and spirituality – perhaps one of the most famous authors in this area is John Butler.

Anthony Werner has led Shepheard Walwyn for over 40 years. He took over from the founder, Christopher Shepheard Walwyn in 1979. When the firm ran out of capital, Anthony invested his own money to keep it going and began publishing books that he felt needed to be published because of their importance to society.

Interview with Fred Harrison - Part 4 - Shepheard Walwyn Podcast

Fred is on record for predicting the start of the next major crash to be 2026-28. In this final podcast of the series, he looks ahead and considers four major challenges facing us in the UK – recovering from the pandemic and handling Brexit; how to handle the rise of online retail and the effect it has on our communities and the position of China in the global economy.

Interview with Fred Harrison - Part 3 - Shepheard Walwyn Podcast

In 1990, Fred had an opportunity to work with the former USSR as it transitioned from a communist economy. All assets were in state hands so it would seem that having an economic system built for the people would be an obvious choice. It was obvious and so it was stopped. As Fred explains, having a successful and fair economy went against the economic interests of the few.

Interview with Fred Harrison - Part 2 - Shepheard Walwyn Podcast

The richest people in the world, through the World Economic Forum in Davos, are arguing for a “Great Reset.” This would mean that normal people own nothing and that resources are concentrated in the hands of an elite. In this podcast, Fred explains how we could have a People’s Reset using the economic ideas popularised in the English speaking world by Henry George, a US born social campaigner. It looks as if we have lots of problems in society. In fact, we have only one…

Interview with Fred Harrison - Part 1 - Shepheard Walwyn Podcast

Fred’s work gets better with time. He looks more deeply at the economic and social challenges we face than just about any other economist we know. Consequently, he gives insights and illumination that still shine decades later. His forecasts are, in our opinion unrivaled in economics. In short he has repeatedly done the impossible by forecasting the peaks and troughs of economic cycles years and even decades ahead of others.
