Since 2006, Future Primitive has brought you intimate conversations with authors, visionaries and innovators who speak about our connection and partnership with the Living Earth. In October 2020, Joanna Harcourt-Smith passed away, and shortly before she expressed her desire for her daughter Lara Tambacopoulou to continue this work.
After almost 700 episodes, Lara is picking up where Joanna left off with new and old voices, documenting the shift in consciousness, the psychedelic renaissance and the global rise in awareness about our interconnections with all things and Gaia.
Born in 60s Switzerland, Lara is of British, Greek and Polish descent with a rich and diverse lived experience. She is a peer counselor, a psychedelic activist, a systemic integration consultant, a poet and photographer and currently on an intense apprenticeship as a student with the Awe Foundation’s 3 year Psychedelic Therapy Training program.
A life-long learner, her education spans from an MA in Image and Communications, an MBA and a Counseling degree from the University of British Columbia. She has worked in diverse business and humanitarian contexts. Today she is most passionate about her systemic constellations work, which she is certified by the Centre for Systemic Constellations in the UK to provide groups and individuals. Everything she does is motivated by the wisdom of radical inclusion, where allowing everything to belong brings all livings beings to a state of consciousness and therefore, harmony.
These incredible conversations that were lovingly brought to so many people by her mother, became the rich backdrop of their ongoing journey of connecting the fragmented lives and circumstances that they traveled together. During her life Joanna nourished Lara with her intense spirit, love and curiosity, and she became one of her greatest teachers.
We thank the following organizations for their assistance and guidance during the creation of this campaign and relaunch of the Future Primitive Podcast.
We are committed to keeping the Future Primitive Podcast ad-free, and will not be implementing a paid subscription service for the foreseeable future.

Besides our Facebook page, we are exploring new ways to connect with our community of listeners and guests. We are considering other communication platforms, such as Heartbeat, etc. Let us know if you have any suggestions.
One of our campaign goals is to make the necessary preparations for proper video interviews, a portion of which will be in-person studio and on-site video interviews. We aim to begin offering each episode as a video interview beginning Spring 2023.
