    Mentioning that Ilima-Lei Macfarlane is the Bellator Flyweight champion, or being familiar with her MMA career, is barely scratching the surface of who Ilima is. Ilima, in fact, is such an incredible human being that her MMA career is just one little piece of the puzzle. Even if you couldn't care less about MMA, please check out Ilima. I promise you won't regret it.

    Today, we chat about the weirdness of entry level MMA, her strange path to an athletic career, traveling around the world, Lakota Sun Dances, ayahuasca, environmental activism in Hawaii, heyoka dreams, 'reading' people, romantic relationships, Justen Hamilton's research, being addicted to terrible relationships, traveling to Italy, and much more.

    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.

    Episode:

    Father's Bolelli Sunday School: The Bible according to Quentin Tarantino:

    • Thank You God for Killing Those Egyptian Children

    The "Rant of the Day":

    • A friend gives me the keys to his vacation home, I end up having sex on his dinner table. Ethical or problematic?
    • Why 'positive thinking' bugs me. Inspiring people vs. peddling a moralistic tale. Showing the struggle and missteps along the way rather than selling an image. Unless you know what it means to battle against demons, how are you going to help anyone else? Tasting your own blood is the first prerequisite to being a fighter

    The "I Have A Dream" Corner:

    • You mean you don't dream of murdering people?!?

    The "Iz Moment":

    • Isabella's insane level of empathy
    • I feel things too much, but I rather feel too much than too little

    The "Storytelling Moment":

    • Teenagers camping in the forest... what could possibly go wrong?

    The "Ask Bolelli" Corner:

    • What the hell is The Drunken Taoist about? It's about living life with intensity. It's a temperature more than a topic
    • Injuries in combat sports; picking good training partners

  • BONUS Episode 4 - Taoist Lecture Series

    Notes:

I have lain in your arms, panting with the violence of our love; you have held and crushed and conquered me, drawing my soul to your lips with the fierceness of your bruising kisses. My heart is welded to your heart, my soul is part of your soul! Were I still in death and you fighting for life, I would come back to the abyss to aid you-aye, whether my spirit floated with the purple sails on the crystal sea of paradise, or writhed in the molten flames of hell!
