Chapel Hill producer and percussionist Stephen Levitin, or the Apple Juice Kid, recently found himself inside a tête-à-tête with New Age movement cultivator and best-selling author Deepak Chopra on the spiritual guru’s web series, One World. It might seem strange, but this doesn’t seem like a far-fetched notion when you consider the spiritual curiosity inherent to Levitin’s music and general demeanor.

Chopra describes his show on the digital broadcasting network NEWSWIRE.FM as a place for “entertainment, enlightenment, and education” and has hosted 141 guests, ranging from Pulitzer Prize winners, media moguls and supramolecular scientists to the guy who invented email. Now Levitin, who’s been dedicating most of his time to enlightening and educating across the world rather than just entertaining, can add his name to that list.

You can rent the entire One World episode or just to watch the four-minute clip of Levitin and Chopra chop it up about topics such as coconut juice and busking.
