What is The Drunken Taoist?

The Drunken Taoist is a bi-monthly podcast by writer/martial artist/college professor/whatever-label-you-feel-like-adding Daniele Bolelli. One of the monthly episodes features discussions and interviews with one or more guests. The other includes the infamous Bolelli rants and verbal Tai Chi with co-host Rich Evirs.

In terms of topics covered by the show, the common thread is whatever makes life intense, passionate and worth living. Anything that meets this requirement is fair game—regardless of whether the starting point is religion, politics, sex, martial arts, philosophy, history, or any other specific field.

Today we chat about why people like to romanticize the past, Jimi Hendrix's savagery at the Monterey Pop Festival, the advantage of not being buried in pleasant distractions, the perfect tao between boredom and overload, 'nostalgia for the future', the power of storytelling (from advertising to politics, from war to patriotism), the hatred for vulnerability, hating people who remind you of what you despise about yourself, and much more.
