The laughing Taoist.

Great podcast. I love the lighthearted approach to explaining Taoism (which is a lighthearted system).

My only recommendation would be that the show should have been called “The Laughing Taoist” for how much Dr. Totten laughs! 😊🤣🙏🏻

The best podcast I’ve ever listened to

What’s This Tao All About is truly the best podcast I’ve ever listened to and it’s truly changed my perspective on things greatly. I stumbled upon this podcast from someone on Reddit and gave it a shot. Dr. Carl Totton is one of the wisest people I’ve ever listened to and Tod injects great insight as well as a hearty dose of humor which keeps the show lighthearted and fun.

Truly one of a kind show and I recommend everyone give it a play!

Oasis in the desert

This podcast is the water I’ve needed throughout my life where nothing else Has really worked. Funny and introspective perspective on the hard to decipher Tao te Ching. I highly recommend to everyone, but especially those struggling with mental illness. I have bipolar and can live medication free utilizing the wisdom of this ancient text. Thank you so much!!
