Podcast(s)

On Dharma Phd (the podcast) we have lively conversations about the topics I’m exploring. All the bits of practice, scholarship, discourse, and teaching. Co-host on mic and interviews. Have a listen!

It was designed by a rad chick in Tucson, Arizona, who worked as a Zoo Keeper and tended to hummingbirds at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum. If you want one, we urge you to consider buying from the original artist, rather than a knockoff from an online retailer: https://www.copperhummingbird.com/gallery Want to get in touch?
