My VONA and Mixed Remixed Festival pal Mat Johnson, whose latest novel is out next week, has an essay in The New York Times Magazine, “Proving My Blackness,” on testing his racial DNA.
On Thanksgiving morning I did a phone interview for the 41st podcast of The Secular Buddhist. Ted Meissner is a delightful, thoughtful host who let me ramble on unimpeded (and trash British cooking skills – oops!). In addition, he creates a webpage with its own music for each episode and provides links to guests’ work. Listen to it online or on iTunes.
Intrigued? Here’s the companion website to the podcast, which examines early Buddhist teaching and practice with a critical eye to its secular application.
