Daniele Bolelli is a University Professor, MMA Fighter, Author, and one of the most badass practical philosophers on the planet.
A Dalai Lama you can get drunk with? In a special 1 year anniversary edition of the Live Different Podcast this is exactly how our guest has been described.
His latest book “Not Afraid: On Fear, Heartbreak, Raising a Baby Girl, and Cage Fighting” is a hero’s journey that will inspire and guide anyone seeking to forge their own path, without the dogmatic side of philosophy that Daniele abhors.
Daniele’s work has had a tremendous impact on my life, including his lecture series on Taoism and of course his signature podcast The Drunken Taoist.
Listen in as Bolelli explains why the term “guru” and “master” makes him want to puke, how to create your own religion, and why it’s okay to visit both wine shops and whorehouses.
