Life has been hard lately. All this suffering: plagues, violence, floods, fires.

A very chatty type podast with enough wisdom to help make your every day better
Wendy shinyo haylett has to be one of my favourite podcasts hosts out there. Being down to earth and knowing her stuff she takes us on a journey through buddhism and lets us know the secrets of engaging with the teachings on a day to day level.
