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 communication & miscommunication, the council of Elrond, religions and philosophies that have shamed people for their sexuality, focusing on actionable items rather than abstract ideologies, how generalizations breed stereotypes, interacting with individuals rather than treating individuals as representatives of a certain ideology, if the ability for complex communication is what separates humans from animals why are we so bad at it, a pragmatic approach to communication, Daniele's strategy for teaching history of religions, Italian politics, Lega Lombarda, Italian culture & food, 'Back to the Future', and much more.
