Mural by Dr. Bob Hieronimus called "A Little Help From Our Friends" featured on the front page of the Baltimore Sun on July 19, 2017. Themes from "A Little Help From our Friends" are cooperation and compassion and the power of neighborhoods. It was designed on commission for the communitiy mediation and arbitration facility known as the Safe and Smart Center in Waverly in 1996 (restored in 2008). Gigantic portraits of some of the "Friends" and inspirations for peace seen in this photo include, left to right, environmental pioneer Rachel Carson, reggae prophet Bob Marley, Nobel poet Bob Dylan, and peaceful resistance pioneer Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. Read the article or read more about the mural.
The Baltimore Sun featured an article about the search for the lost Light Bus in its Sunday, July 9, 2017 paper:
[Dr. Bob] Hieronimus, an Owings Mills artist and expert in esoteric subjects, has teamed up with a research group out of the State University of New York Maritime College and a documentary film producer to locate what remains of his creation [the Light Bus] and bring its message of “higher consciousness” back in time to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the festival that made it famous.
The Light Bus, a 1963 Kombi VW painted by Dr. Bob Hieronimus, Ph.D. and commissioned by Bob Grimm for his band Light to ride on tour, went to Woodstock and became part of the festival's iconography. It captured the mood and aspirations of a generation searching for its own identity and place, and appeared on the Woodstock Album inner sleeve. Photos of it have been featured in numerous articles and retrospectives about Woodstock, but where is the bus itself?
"The original bus, unfortunately, was last seen partially being held together by the paint job," says Hieronimus. "Its eventual demise is a bit of mystery to us in this day and age. It wasn't my bus, after all. I painted it on commission for Bob Grimm, who ... headed to England to tour with the Four Seasons ... today neither one of us can remember what eventually happened to the bus in the end. But we are determined to locate what's left of it and recreate it for Woodstock's 50th anniversary in August 2019."

We'll be at the debut of documentary film director Maryanne Bilham-Knight's new mini biopic on visionary artist and writer Ingo Swann, the father of remote viewing. The documentary, produced by The Estate of Ingo Swann (Swann Ryder Prodctions LLC), debuts on Saturday, May 27, at New York's Philip K. Dick Film Festival, and is followed by a remarkable panel discussion featuring the top-flight creators of the Remote Viewing program in the US. We're grateful to call each of the panelists longtime friends, and they've all been previous guests on 21st Century Radio®: Jacques Vallee, Lt. Col. Thomas McNear (ret.), Dr. Harold Puthoff, and Blynne Olivieri, as well as Maryanne herself. Learn more about the film festival and check out the film on Facebook!
The festival celebrates the legacy and influence of Philip K. Dick, the dystopian sci-fi author, and a visionary himself, promoting original or adapted material inspired by the works of Philip K. Dick and others who have explored the metaphysical and the eerie. He and Ingo were friends for many years.
Last year we met up with Maryanne and her husband Robert M. Knight—read about it here.
New cartoon including the Statue of Liberty vs. the 45th president. This one comes from our friend, animator Malcolm Draper, who was both a former assistant animator on the Popeye cartoon series in the 1960s for Halas and Batchelor, and later promoted to a full animator on the Beatles Yellow Submarine. His recollections of working on that film will eventually be included in volume 2 of Inside the Yellow Submarine: The Making of the Beatles Animated Classic. See more cartoons showing the Statue of Liberty vs. #45 on our blog about the Secret Life of Lady Liberty.

Interview with Joyce Levine on 21st Century Radio® with Dr. Zohara Hieronimus, DHL, January 15, 2017. Highlight: “We have to be ready for a [financial] downturn around September. Trump’s chart… is very challenged in the month of August. With the opposition to his Sun and the conjunction to his Moon, it’s sort of like it’s time to pay the piper. July, August, September, October, are particularly challenging for him.” Read more.

Many people are dressing up as Lady Liberty in protests around the world, and dozens of articles and blogs in the past few days are illustrated with pictures of the Statue of Liberty in distress. And it’s no wonder our American Goddess is suddenly popular again – she’s the obvious choice when symbolically opposing Mr. Trump’s war of hatred on immigrants. Read more.
Tonight's show on January 22, 2017 is the first one we’ve produced under the new empire. We have a new president. In hour one our guests are two wisdom keepers from the Iroquois tradition, husband and wife team Mohawk Doug George Kanentiio and Oneida Joanne Shenandoah, whom we are asking for guidance from both their prophecies for the future and their ancient past. Second hour, our international correspondent Joe Honick will review the return to 1930s-style nationalism displayed in the inauguration speech, and interference from the Russians in the election. While the majority of Americans do not support this new president, he has even less support around the planet. This solidarity AGAINST what he stands for was clearly demonstrated on both Friday and Saturday. Read more.
We have ordered 20 of these to be at the ready. Order now.
Dr. Zohara Hieronimus' article Existence is a Continuum appears in the Winter 2016 issue of Species Link Journal. She writes:
"Animals, like indigenous tribal people, view existence and non-existence as a continuum. Animals, like many in the human population, are more concerned about the entire Earth and its ecosystems than themselves specifically. For instance, Bear, Wolf, Lion, Elephant, Whale, and Bison are all apex animals in their ecosystems. If any of them become extinct, everything under these capstone species disassembles. Their message to us, as I write about in my upcoming book on the White Spirit Animals, is 'to save as many of us as you can.'" Read the full article.

We are truly honored to be invited by the prestigious National Arts Club in New York City to give a visual presentation of "The Secret Life of Lady Liberty" on December 20th, 2016 at 8 PM. The event is open to the public, and one of our VIP guests will be Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney (D-NY), staunch supporter of gender equality and the essential message behind the Secret Life of Lady Liberty. Founded in 1898, the National Arts Club is located in the historic Samuel Tilden Mansion in Gramercy Park in New York City, and its membership has included many distinguished artists, composers, architects, and three U.S. presidents. Our talk will focus on how the Statue of Liberty is an Energizing Symbol, showing her used in political cartoons, in Hollywood disaster movies, and as a focal point of social protest movements. The Statue of Liberty stands for "us." Read more.
The Secret Life of Lady Liberty came to one of the most beautiful historic libraries in Baltimore on December 1, 2016. Co-authors Robert R. Hieronimus, Ph.D., and Laura E. Cortner presented a visual tour of their new book exploring the symbolism of the Goddess Lady Liberty, revealing why everyone claims the Statue of Liberty as one of "us," but most forget that she is GOD in female form.

One of the best interviews about The Secret Life of Lady Liberty: Goddess in the New World we’ve done was with Shirley Maclaine on Independent Expression Radio. She says, "Robert Hieronimus has been a favorite of mine for a very long time. I have been especially interested in reading his doctoral stuff on The Historic Analysis of the Reverse of the American Great Seal and his research on America’s 'secret destiny.' But what I want to talk about today on this Fourth of July is The Secret Life of Lady Liberty: Goddess in the New World. (I really enjoyed it very much.) This is going to be an interesting book. Let’s say a prayer for the Statue of Liberty and what it means to solve all these problems." Listen to the interview

From Grub Street: After much success (including a Michelin star and much praise), "... chef Elise Kornack and her wife, Anna Hieronimus ... will permanently close their four-year-old restaurant, but it’s a decision that they’ve made from a position of strength — business is better than ever. So why is now the time to say good-bye?" Read the full article.
Well, we had a GREAT time at the Leon Day 100th Birthday party on Saturday, October 29, at the Babe Ruth Museum. You can see part of Dr. Bob's speech in the link below. Thanks to the hard work of Michelle Freeman and her group of friends and family that pulled this off, we were able to honor our old friend, the Negro League legend, Leon Day, who finally made it into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1995, just six days before he died. Thank you to the Baltimore Sun, and especially to Dan Rodricks for his column and podcast, and to Mary McCauley for her terrific article in the Baltimore Sun, and to Karl Merton Ferron for his very touching video included as part of that article online. Thanks to them we had close to a hundred people turn out and enjoy birthday cake and baseball stories and snacks and participate in our silent auction and sales table where we raised even more money for the West Baltimore youth baseball leagues. Keeping alive the integrity and grit and resilience of the old Negro Baseball Leagues and inspiring that sportsmanship in a new generation. More information at LeonDayFoundation.org. We highly recommend you support this worthy foundation. Read the full article & watch the video.

Small world of interconnectivity when we were interviewed last month (May 2016) for a documentary about our dear friend Ingo Swann. Ingo was, of course, the legendary remote viewer who led the way in training the military how to do psychic spying, and he and I first crossed paths back in the early 1970s as I traveled the lecture circuit with my good buddy Christopher Bird, who was talking about the Secret Life of Plants. Chris and I quickly had our fill of "New Age" conferences and began finding unusual ways to amuse ourselves. My favorite was founding the "International Order of the Paper Clip" and showing up to conferences wearing enormous paper clips on our lapels, confusing everyone for our own personal delight. I think we may have even initiated Ingo into our secret brotherhood on one occasion. Read more.

Hieronimus & Co. received this exciting bit of news comparing the rebirth of Dr. Bob's Apocalypse mural to what happened to Diego Rivera and his mural Man at the Crossroads in 1933. Dr. Bob's doctoral committee chairman, Dr. Stanley Krippner, told us that while he was giving a presentation in Mexico recently, he compared the Hieronimus work to that of Diego Rivera, specifically, that both suffered from the destruction of their murals.

Dr. Zohara Meyerhoff Hieronimus, D.H.L, has been writing her book about the White Spirit Animals for two years (working title: White Spirit Animals: Prophets of the Wild, to be released in 2017 by Bear & Co.), discovering as Shamans do, that dreams are a bridge between all species and make it possible for everyone to talk with animals. "What I have learned is that animals know their own pre-Ice Age history and share it willingly with humans who listen. All of the White spirit animals are apex guardians of entire ecosystems. We must do everything we can to protect the Lion, Bear, Wolf, Bison, Elephant and Whale as each presides over Earth's major ecosystems, which, without them, will collapse more rapidly."

As we approach the 30th anniversary of 21st Century Radio®, I find myself reflecting on my approach to the program that I have hosted and produced for so long, and deciding to make some changes. Nothing drastic, like taking the program off the air or anything like that! Just changing my approach to the insane amount of preparation I do for each guest, which limits the total number of guests we are able to feature on the show. I'll explain my decision after first reviewing some of our history. Click here to read more.

Dr. Bob and Zohara enjoyed entertaining the film crew from Brazil that visited in February of 2014 to interview Bob about his Woodstock Bus memories. But they never imagined the films that were produced would win seven Lion Awards, including two golds, at the International Festival of Creativity in Cannes, the world's most renowned advertising festival!

“I enjoy being on 21st Century Radio with my friend, Dr. Bob Hieronimus because we need people who are putting the truth in front of our faces. We need leaders. We need great voices on the radio, and Dr. Bob is one of them.”
All that follows are direct quotes from Graham Nash's appearance on 21st Century Radio® with Dr. Bob Hieronimus on November 4, 2012 when they reviewed “The Art of Graham Nash” exhibit in NYC.
In April of 1972 I was contacted by the former Secretary General of the United Nations U Thant, who was providing a letter of introduction to me for Buddhist mystic and diplomat U Maung Maung Ji. This led to several momentous encounters for me with my most important mentors, who told me I had been overshadowed by a higher force to execute “The Apocalypse.”

I believe the time has now come for me to reveal this story and introduce you to the guides who have been with me since at least 1968 when I realized why I incarnated in this earthly body known as Robert R. Hieronimus.
