Third Eye Drops #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!LISTEN ON ITUNES ARCHIVE STITCHER YOUTUBEbolelliTo 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."
