Buddhism for the 21st Century

Ethan Nictern brings Buddhism into the 21st century with articulate insight, timely storytelling, and a dash of humor. Highly recommend this podcast for the spiritual seekers of the modern day.

Ep. 27/Shauna Ahern

I'm pretty flummoxed that a podcast guided by Buddhist philosophy would have a guest talk about a childhood centered around a profoundly mentally ill mother -- I'm making my judgment based on Ms. Ahern's own descriptions in this podcast -- with no insight or empathy provided by the host or the guest. Ms. Ahern repeatedly trashes her mother, using words like PTSD, abuse, cult; she had a painful childhood and she is going to make that known, period. No one is obligated to forgive, but it is very, very curious that this podcast provided a platform for Ms. Ahern's anger; she calls for people to be softer around the edges and more introspective, but apparently this does not extend to her mother, who desperately needed help in a time (Ms. Ahern's growing up) when mental health was really not talked about. If this is Buddhism I want no part of it.
