Episode 286

Meditation class with David Nichtern

If you're interested in learning the basics of meditation then this DTFH is for you.

David Nichtern is a senior meditation teacher in the Shambhala Buddhist lineage of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche and Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche. He's also my friend and was kind enough to sit down with me and allow me to record a semi-formal meditation training.

He's teaching some classes in Los Angeles this summer. I'll be at the one in June.

Johnny Pemberton VS. AT&T

Episode 274

Johnny Pemberton VS. AT&T

A 3 hour mega episode in which Johnny Pemberton confronts the soulless void that is the gestalt of AT&T. 

Trigger warning- if you're not prepared to experience the feeling of having your soul extracted by an ancient monolithic hive of cultists then skip over this episode because it will bang your gong, baby.

Chris Ryan

Episode 273

Chris Ryan

Oh man. I can talk about just about anything on the podcast but getting real about my struggles with jealousy and my current thinking on sex and monogamy was really hard.

But if I'm gonna open up to anyone about it it might as well be Chris Ryan who co-wrote a terrific book on monogamy called Sex At Dawn and who privately has been something of a mentor to me when it comes to this stuff.

So enjoy! if you've ever struggled with jealousy I hope this helps a bit.
