Dr. Bob Hieronimus was honored by the curators of a Heinz Edelmann retrospective exhibit, and asked to loan several of his Edelmann pieces for temporary display in their gallery. Below is a translation of the program of this monumental exhibit that opened in Lausanne, Switzerland in 2015, along with several photos of the exhibit and the street banners advertising it.

Oneida singer, composer, and acoustic guitarist Joanne Shenandoah has appeared on 21st Century Radio in the past. Besides her Grammy win and widespread acclaim, she has performed at the Vatican, and has been recognized for her work in environmental activism. Last summer, she was exposed to deadly bacteria, and her liver began to fail. She needs an organ transplant, and we here are supporting the fundraising campaign—please join us in making a donation.

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.

The historic Apocalypse mural by Dr. Bob Hieronimus at Johns Hopkins University, Levering Hall was fully restored in the summer of 2015, and on April 8, 2016 Johns Hopkins hosted an alumni weekend special lecture and tour of the mural. The lecture on the social justice history of Hopkins was followed by a cocktail reception and then a personal tour of the mural by the artist himself. University President Ron Daniels introduced the speakers, honoring Dr. Bob, the mural, and the team of restoration artists, with a sold-out presentation on the history of social activism at Hopkins by historian Bill Leslie.

Sir George Martin, Beatles producer, passed away in early March of 2016. On March 20, we produced a two hour radio special made up of clips from the numerous times he had joined us as a guest on 21st Century Radio. (Click here to listen to that show.) In fact, we did six exclusive interviews with him starting in 1995 up to 2007, in what must have been one of the last radio interviews he granted, as his hearing was severely impaired by that time. He granted us access most other media could not get, and even ABC radio contacted us at one point to use our tapes because they needed a quote from him and couldn't get it. We talked about the Cirque du Soleil's LOVE production, the Beatles Anthology, the Yellow Submarine, Genetically Modified Foods, global warming and the destruction of Montserrat, as well as ghosts, UFOs and ESP.

We are very pleased to announce four new articles from Johns Hopkins University detailing the renovation of Dr. Bob's historic "Apocalypse" mural at Levering Hall that was completed last summer. Read their article "It's (Not) the End of the World as We Know It" here, and take a very cool 360-degree virtual tour of the mural here and read some of Dr. Bob's personal thoughts here: "Rising with 'Dr. Bob': Seeing 'Apocalypse' through the artist's eyes." Also be sure to check out "'The Apocalypse' then and now: JHU's massive 1960s mural gets a much-needed makeover". It is very exciting to learn that contemporary students at Johns Hopkins are being inspired by this mural to activate their own missions for social justice.

"It's called Catalog.Earth. Our mission is to preserve some of the world’s most endangered landscapes in 360 video before they are destroyed by deforestation, climate change, and even warfare. We are trying to build a virtual and lasting archive of these perishable places, where anyone (students, artists, scientists, non-profits, etc.) can access and use the footage for free." This would be part of a commons audio, visual library of our Planet now, for the future.

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."

Sarah Palin represents an extremist Christian mindset that is just as dangerous and potentially violent as the extremist Islamic mindset. It's called the New Apostolic Reformation, and because their claims are so outrageous to seem almost silly to the American intelligentsia, the media's underreporting on this growing movement means we have ignored this fundamentalist mindset at our own peril. The mania that is currently manifesting as growing support for a madman like Donald Trump is fueled by people who love conspiracies where they can blame "the other" for all that is wrong with the world. Hatred of "the other" has led to horrifying genocides in history, but blaming some other group remains perennially attractive because it is easier than taking responsibility for oneself to fix what is wrong with the world.

The Secret Life of Lady Liberty: Goddess in the New World is the title of a forthcoming book by Robert R. Hieronimus, Ph.D. and Laura E. Cortner, scheduled for publication by Inner Traditions International in late summer of 2016. This is not your standard Statue of Liberty book. Instead, this book uses the Statue of Liberty as a focal point to examine the symbolism of the female divine in America, and why the idea of an American goddess makes so many people feel uncomfortable. Focusing on Liberty in the form of a giant woman reveals the untold histories of the many suppressed classes in America, and leads to the realization that the empowerment of contemporary women is essential for achieving sustainable liberty for all.

Dr. Zoh recently wrote a letter to the the Maryland House Environment and Transportation Committee on HB211, a bill which would manage the use of neonicotinoid pesticides and require labeling of plants treated with them. Neonics poses numerous risks, and it's important to limit their indiscriminate use—by protecting our pollinators we will ensure a safe and plentiful food supply. We will also protect wildlife and human health by reducing the non-essential widespread use of these toxic pesticides. Read her full letter & find out how to make your voice heard.
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.
To the great credit of a hardworking team meeting a series of backbreaking challenges, the Apocalypse mural restoration was completed on time, on the final day allotted: August 20, 2015. In the weeks approaching the deadline, our team of artists had to be expanded by three, and we all had to move from working five days a week to seven, a move that obviously further taxed our major funding source. My original team of four artists plus myself were quite confident back in May that we could complete the task of repairing and repainting 2,700 square feet within the timeframe allowed, from mid-May to August 20th, the day we had to be cleared out in time for the students returning to campus for the fall. We had no idea how overly optimistic we were. Read more.
"It's really thrilling to see the mural coming back to life,' said John Astin, Academy Award nominee, actor, and director of the Theatre Arts and Studies Department at Johns Hopkins. "There's creative thinking in that "Apocalypse" mural, and you can't look at it without being stimulated in a very positive way." Hopkins Professor Stuart "Bill" Leslie who is presently writing a new history of the Johns Hopkins University due out in 2018, said "The 'Apocalypse' mural is a good reminder for the current crop of students that their predecessors were out there in the front lines for civil rights, and even gay rights activism." The supervisor of the Photography program for The Center for Visual Arts in the School of Arts and Sciences at Johns Hopkins, Phyllis Berger, says "My times spent there at the mural were pivotal in my growth and helped me become the person that I am."

Zohara Meyerhoff Hieronimus The Baltimore Sun, May 2, 2015.
The tragic deaths of Freddie Gray in Maryland, Michael Brown of Missouri, and Walter Scott in South Carolina are representative of America’s institutionalized violence, grounded in our modern era drug war.
The American drug war began with President Richard Nixon’s 1971 declaration of war, calling drug use “public enemy No.1,” followed two years later by the creation of the Drug Enforcement Agency. It was easier then for law enforcement to both legally and illegally arrest our citizens without fearing for their own lives, because there were fewer guns on the streets. Today there are 250 million to 300 million guns in our community, one for almost every American.

The growing and widespread use of toxic neonicotinoid pesticides ("neonics") is a major contributor to the alarming decline of honey bees. This poses a serious threat to our food supply, to wildlife and to human health. We need to pass this bill to label nursery plants treated with toxic, bee-killing pesticides and restrict their consumer use. Many “bee-friendly” garden plants sold at home garden centers have been pre-treated with these bee-killing pesticides—contact your elected officials about this now!

Restaurant kitchens require a certain amount of manpower to run, so unless you’re popping over to his house, the chef isn’t really the one cooking dinner for you. It’s the chef plus many hands -- cooks who arrive early to wash, peel, and chop, prep all day, and cook through service, staying late to scrub down the kitchen and take stock of the walk in.
There are few exceptions to this rule. You’ll find one in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn, where the married couple Elise Kornack (back of house) and Anna Hieronimus (front of house) have a 12-seat restaurant called Take Root. Kornack, who is 27, has no prep cook, no dishwasher, no intern to pick and wash herbs, no sous chef to put out the fires. The kitchen is hers alone and what comes out of it can be marvelous.
Now you can take home an affordable memento of one of Dr. Bob’s most famous Artcars! But we warn you: playing with them can be addictive!
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! Congratulations to Spray Filmes and the PR firm ALMA BBDO for creating such an emotional tribute in honor of the world’s final goodbye to the Kombi vans.

“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.”
Main room, main wall of “The Apocalypse” mural, extended
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.
