J talks with multiple award-winning filmmaker and best-selling author, Lionel Friedberg. • They talk about growing up in apartheid era South Africa being the catalyst for his family to move to central-Africa where he would go on to began his extraordinary career in film, and talk about how when he was struck by a life-threatening illness, his efforts to find a cure led him back to Africa where he encountered the age-old rituals and healing methods of African shamans; inspiring him to author one of his newest books about the mysterious ways of the Shaman and their relevance today. He shares some pretty incredible stories. Lionel’s near sixty years of work has been featured everywhere from National Geographic, PBS, Discovery Channel, to A&E, The History Channel, and many more.
