MIND MELD 3 | Daniele Bolelli – Professor, Savage, Author, Philosopher, Boob Poet


Seeking a show about angry goats, psychedelic gnosis and Theodore Roosevelt? Then congratulations my friend, you’ve found your grail!


To everyone else rereading that seemingly nonsensical combination of topics: no, the forceps of destiny didn’t get drunk on the job and start plopping subject matter into reality at random with zero care, I promise. This conversation is actually (fairly) coherent.

To whom do we owe that coherence? Professor, Author and Podcaster extraordinaire, Daniele Bolelli!

Daniele hosts two tremendous podcasts, The Drunken Taoist (a conversation-based show, not dissimilar to this one) and History on Fire .

Daniele is also the author of stellar works like Create Your own Religion and his latest, Not Afraid,  “a meditation on facing fear, heartbreak, and mortality. The story of a man who in rapid succession has his wife die in his arms, loses his house and his job, and is left to care for his 19-month old daughter.”
