Best Buddhist Scholarly Podcast

I've been listening to Buddhist related podcasts for about 15 years and Bob is a Five-Star podcast. I like his sense of humor too. He always sounds like a happy teacher - which is what HH always encourages but few can accomplish.

Bob has lost his sanity.

I once loved Bob, but now he is so demented that he thinks he hrs was cheated and injects that poison into a lecture .
Mar 10 he goes so far out in left field to destroy what little credibility remained.Goodbye bob-dope
