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).

Ridiculously bad

The host himself has actually said ‘I really don’t know what to talk about next, this might be my last episode’. Gotta love a host who is that vapid and clueless!!!!! From the annoying intro music and ‘CUP OF TAO’ Devil voice from the start, this is absolutlely hilarious, like a parody of some who doesn’t know anything about Taoism pretending they know what the F they’re talking about. I look at this like a comedy podcast, but it’s sadly not funny. I wish him well in whatever career is 180 degrees from this realm. Please don’t be a writer or podcast host if you’re this ill informed.

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.
