Imperfect Buddha Podcast: Introducing the Why, the How, the Intent of it All
New Books Network 2015
What is the Imperfect Buddha Podcast? Where does it come from? Why listen to it? All of these questions and more are presented in this introduction designed at clarifying for new listeners just what kind of podcast you are getting into. Running since 2015, the Imperfect Buddha Podcast has sought to challenge western Buddhism’s taboos, its anti-intellectualism, its friction with tradition, its enlightenment cults, Buddhist cults, dodgy teachers, flirtation with the New Age and Hinduism, and bring it all to a wonderful little thing called the Great Feast. There’s a whole episode dedicate to this place in case you’re interested.
If you like critical, intelligent engagement with contemporary Buddhism, the practising life, and what it means to wake up, get enlightened, meditate and save the world, this podcast is for you. Hosted by Matthew O’Connell and put together by a vast team of Bodhisattvas and Dakinis. Each episode is guaranteed to put merit in your bank.
Matthew O'Connell is a life coach and the host of the The Imperfect Buddha podcast. You can find The Imperfect Buddha on Facebook and Twitter (@imperfectbuddha).
