Tamra Lucid is a founding member of the experimental rock band Lucid Nation. She was a writer and editor for Newtopia Magazine and the principal interviewer for the original Reality Sandwich. She has produced documentary films, including Exile Nation: The Plastic People, End of the Line: The Women of Standing Rock, and the award-wining Viva Cuba Libre: Rap Is War. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband, musician and writer Ronnie Pontiac.
In this episode, we focus on her new book, Making the Ordinary Extraordinary: My Seven Year in Occult Los Angeles with Manly Palmer Hall, which Mitch Horowitz has called "A compelling written portrait of a life of one of the most significant occult voices of the last century."
This book is available on all online publishers, but we recommend her wonderful publisher Inner Traditions: https://www.innertraditions.com/author/tamra-lucid
