Meet My Good Friend

This is a podcast where I interview random people that I meet to prove that everyone has a story to tell. It's StoryCorps + Humans of New York, I guess. So far I've met an IT guy, a jewelery merchandiser, a crazy conspiracy theorist, a hippie chick, a hairdresser, an astronomer, a stand-up comedian, and a traveling insurance adjuster. Who will I meet next?

Come with me on a spiritual journey and meet my good friend Bhakta Al. He is a practitioner of Gaudiya Vaishnavism, commonly referred to as Hare Krishna. I didn’t know a single thing about the faith before I met Al and I felt I needed to tread lightly as not to say anything ignorant or offensive. It turns out that Al is really down to earth and we had a great time chatting about the religion.

Learn about how reincarnation is not necessarily a good thing, how uncomfortable underwear can keep you from being lustful, and why Krishnas wear robes, shave their heads (except for a ponytail) and put clay markings on their foreheads.

This is a really interesting talk, even if you know nothing about the faith as I did. Listen in to my good friend Bhakta Al and get one step closer to enlightenment!
