Comedian Lee Mack has long had an interest in Buddhism, mindfulness and the possibility of leading a more spiritual life. After a few years of dabbling in meditation, he feels the time has come to decide once and for all whether he should seriously seek spiritual enlightenment.

‘I Can’t Believe It’s Not Buddha’ is a new podcast which finds Lee and his friend Neil taking their first (often clumsy) steps on the road to Nirvana.

From picking which type of Buddhism to follow, to contemplating what a woodland creature would say to you if you asked it the time; Lee and Neil explore the principles and practices of Buddhism in a way that spiritual practice has never been explored before… Possibly for very good reason.

Review

I am loving this podcast. I often visit a FB page set up for listeners of the Buddha at the gas pump to discuss the interviews. That rarely happens so it becomes a platform for people to talk what appears to be nonsense to me. They are “non dualists” who declare that nothing happens, nobody is here to have anything happen to them and such like. As Neil said they take themselves very seriously and there is little to no humour there. Although some of the enlightened ones are not above swearing at those who challenge them. Anyway I love being able to laugh and chortle when listening to this. Thank you.
