Do you believe there’s a natural energy that permeates the universe? Wilhelm Reich did, calling it “orgone.” He also thought it was generated by orgasms, could manipulate the weather and cure cancer. Join Joe and Christian as they review Reich’s life work, including a personal visit to his Orgonon observatory. We cover Reich’s history, his contributions to alternative medicine and psychoanalysis, his orgone theories and his construction of orgone accumulators and cloudbusters.
