Our conversation was a lot of fun and I think you’ll enjoy it. He’s a skilled interviewer, and probably more knowledgeable about the subject than I am! The audio format is completely new to me, so I might sound clueless, but he can make up for that.
I haven’t had a chance to listen to it yet—I am in a four cities/four days travel bardo—so please let me know what you think. I hope to do more podcasts soon, and feedback would be helpful. (Do you want to hear me talking, or would you rather read? Or both? Do I sound like an idiot? Anything in particular you’d like to hear me talk about?)
Ted is doing important work in articulating a secular vision of Buddhism for the future, and drawing together other Buddhist thinkers who have naturalistic, secular view. I listened to more than a dozen of the podcasts on his site to prepare for mine, and found many of them extremely interesting. There’s a complete list here; check it out.
