Via Third Eye Drops
Seeking a show about angry goats, psychedelic gnosis and Theodore Roosevelt? Then congratulations my friend, you’ve finally found your grail!
To everyone else rereading that seemingly nonsensical combination of topics: no, the forceps of destiny didn’t get drunk on the job and start plopping subject matter into reality at random with zero care, I promise. This conversation is actually (fairly) coherent.
To whom do we owe that coherence? Professor, author and podcaster extraordinaire, Daniele Bolelli!
Daniele also hosts two tremendous podcasts, The Drunken Taoist (a conversation-based show, not dissimilar to this one) and History on Fire , which dives down a variety of marvelous historical rabbit holes.
Daniele is also the author of some stellar literary works like Create Your own Religion and his latest, Not Afraid, “a meditation on facing fear, heartbreak, and mortality. The story of a man who in rapid succession has his wife die in his arms, loses his house and his job, and is left to care for his 19-month old daughter.”
