Great Overall

Great overall! Good metaphors, content, etc. Although content isn’t traditional or ‘out of the book’ like readings from Zhuangzi or the Dao de Jing. It is more applicable though and breaks down some of the parables, etc. The only thing is pronunciation of various things, like Laozi. They pronounce it (layo-zoo) when in China it is pronounced (la-owe-zoo).

May the Force be with Chris

I enjoy this show a lot each episode teaches important life lessons. I practice Jediism and this practice incorporates Buddhism and Taoism. I love this podcast. Each episode teaches me new things.

Exactly what I was looking for

I like that this podcast is not trying to be bigger than it is - no bells and whistles - no big personalities- just a soothing, discerning voice sharing big concepts in a concise, practical fashion.
