Today was an episode I wish I never had to record. My father, who was a guest on a previous Drunken Taoist episode, recently died. In today's episode, Iz sings a tribute for her grandfather, Rich discusses the death of his own father, we chat about mortality and travel during the age of covid, the very strange FB event following my father's death, why hope hurts, trying to convince my grandma to take a final trip to Switzerland, how my father 'created' himself, being a master of denial, the origins of my pessimism, the many things I learned from my father, Brian Eno music, and much more.
