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.

Chris Ryan is one hell of a human being. His new book, 'Civilized to Death,' is one of the best i've read in a long time. I stayed up until an ungodly early hour of the morning to finish it before our conversation. Today our chat ranges all over the place: from Game of Thrones quotes to the paradox of civilization, how modern society sells you a plastic replacement for real experiences it has destroyed, Hunting and Gathering violence (or lack of thereof), why Chris thinks Steven Pinker and Jane Goodall are less than honest, the population bomb, the possibility of worldwide collapse, and much more.
