THE TRIBE HAS SPOKEN — Why SURVIVOR Still Matters

10/28/2018
More
As we approach the merge on the latest season (Davids Vs Goliaths) of SURVIVOR, I wanted to take a closer look; why does the show endure? How does the Hero's Journey apply to non-fiction? And what the hell happens now that CANADIANS CAN PLAY, TOO?!? It's another 30min+ freestyle ep of Buddha and the Slut, so pop in those buds and bask in my nerdishly honeyed tones and the soundtrack sweetness of Tobias Tinker and Stillness3.

THE PENDULUM SWINGS

9/27/2018
More
Hey Kittens and Cats, Here's a 23min freeform rant on gender politics — where things are at between men and women right now and where (according to some wacky evolutionary biologists) it may have all started. Rampant OPINIONS, theorizing, inflammatory thoughts (drawn from some pretty compelling science) AND yes...an earnest plea for mutual compassion. Is there a chance for us to hug this one out...bitch?

'HOMECOMING' (10 Min - Suspense)

8/26/2018
More
Hey kittens and cats — the summer series continues with something a little bit different on Buddha and the Slut. You see, I get asked a ton about the whole ‘digital nomad’ working remote thing. A lot of you still seem to have NO idea what I actually ‘do’... So here's a short suspense narrative I recently did for a game client as a 'storytelling test': three sections of prose (200 words or less per section), along with two TEXTING sequences (8 lines or less) to gauge my ability to quickly...

SUMMER STORYTIME

It's all about timing, friends... And since I'm in Berlin right now with composer cousin and Buddha and the Slut soundtrack maestro Tobias Tinker as we beaver away on our next big sonic surprise (and oh MAN, is it gonna knock your damn socks off, kids), we wanted to honour the 2-year anniversary of our epic audiobook project — THE CAT'S MAW. So here's another sweet chapter from early on in the book, featuring the vocal brilliance of DAVID KAYE, the music of TT, and an original (and more...

AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR (SPOILERS)

4/28/2018

Call it clickbait. Call it bandwagoning. Call it contrarianism of the highest order. But there's simply NO way I could stay silent on the cinematic behemoth that is AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR! Hence this bonus podcast, along with the blog/transcript version over on my site — happy listening ;-)

EP 20: 'A QUESTION OF GOODNESS' (Season Finale)

3/30/2018
More
(25min) It’s been almost a year since I posted the first episode. I cranked ‘em out, bi-weekly, all wild-eyed and eagle-eared. Shared tales I hoped would lift and inspire and make the hard roads a bit easier to tread. But I also dug in the muck…you know…in case you dared make the mistake of holding yours truly in too high a regard. Because if history has taught us anything, it’s how quickly a pedestal can get torn down, and turned into a crucifix. And to think…I didn’t even plan this as...

LET'S PLAY — Choose Your Own Adventure! (Live Gameplay and Soundtrack)

2/9/2018
More
At year's end, a client asked me to whip up a text-based adventure game writing sample in Twine software. I happily obliged. Lots of folks enjoyed the creepy mystery, to the point of suggesting I do a show where someone plays through the game in a live setting. I decided to go one better. I'd visit my composer cousin in Berlin —from EP4's The Piano Man Cometh — and have him play through with me while creating a LIVE SOUNDTRACK!!! We hope you enjoy the silliness that follows =)))

Q and A MINICAST (10min)

1/20/2018

A listener asks if I have any influential song lyrics AND wants to know all the details on my best meal ever. Needless to say, the unscripted results are a wacky mix of emo nostalgia AND nomadic Spanish bliss! Featuring music by Stillness3.

EP 19: OF STONES AND SHADOW

In this episode, I return to Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia after 40 YEARS with the plan of scattering my beloved cat Quinn's ashes in the colonial graveyard by my childhood home. And then something magical happens... (Feat. Original Music by Stillness3 + a free audiobook exclusive from The Cat's Maw, starring David Kaye)

EP 18: FIRE IN THE SKY

12/23/2017
More
After a recent twitter poll (and to honour the magic of the season) I am delivering unto you a story of a mystical nature. Otherworldly, even. And it’s a doozy, ‘cause it’s the first time I have publicly shared the details of these events…ever. Twas a night in late autumn, and all through the place…something was stirring…something from…outer space. You’re listening to Buddha and the Slut. And this unbelievable yet utterly true tale is called... FIRE IN THE SKY.

EP 17: HAPPY ENDINGS AIN'T CHEAP

12/10/2017
More
Time for another true tale of digital nomad debauchery and Third World mid-life madness from the shores of Southeast Asia! This one revolves around my discovery of a (then) little-known island oasis in the Andaman Sea -- a Muslim island, in the land of Buddhists. After resisting the lures of 'Sexual Disneyland' for most of my adult life, it's little wonder I longed to flee the sordid culture shock of three winters in Phuket. Little did I know that destiny would be waiting for me on...

It’s been a while, friends, but we’re back with more wild and wacky Q&A goodness. But this time? Things are gonna be a bit different…because these questions were submitted with AUDIO! And not just the voice of any old inquisitive gal or fella, faithful listeners. Today is a real treat, as my not-so-old friend, acclaimed singer songwriter, and all-around heartbreakin’ sassy pants CHRYSTAL LEIGH - of Nashville sensation SONS OF DAUGHTERS - is the one on the mic.

EP 14: TIL DEATH DO US PART

On this show, I tell stories. Strange ones. Scary ones. Sweet and sad and difficult ones. These are true tales of my experiences with travel and culture, magic and mysticism, and all things dirty - both good and bad. But now? Now I’m going to tell a story about love. It’s been a year, almost to the day, that she left. And I first wrote this piece to deal with the grief. But now, I’m sharing it to honour her. And to remind people that a soulmate can come in many forms…and inevitably...

EP 13: THE TEMPLE OF DELPHINE

9/30/2017

There’s truth in the old saying, ‘It’s not where you are, but who you’re with, that makes the journey worthwhile.’ And with 7 years of the nomad life under my well-worn belt, I tend to agree. I’ve been to some amazing places, and seen some incredible things, but it’s the people I’ve met on the path that made it memorable. That opened me up. Taught me the big lessons. Call them good, or bad, or rockin’ the middle way… ALL of them were teachers. All of them were mirrors. This is a story...

EP 12: OF DREAMS AND DESTINY

9/18/2017
More
Back in Spring 2004 I hadn’t been sleeping well for months. Not to mention zero exercise, and heaps of junk food. Something had to give. Turns out my breakdown wouldn't happen in the waking world... A few weeks after I adopted my cat, Quinn – the little Maine Coon goddess who would watch me each night from the foot of the bed with something akin to ‘annoyed concern’ — there was a fateful evening when I finally sank into slumber. And I mean it like it sounds – sank. Like a boat with a hole...

After two days of 'digesting' the finale and posting a knee-jerk rant, I needed to get this TWIN PEAKS: The Return Theory recorded ASAP. And it's already received over THOUSANDS of views, heaps of comments and subscribes, and tons of debate over on YouTube. We're talking Dale Cooper, Laura Palmer, The Black Lodge, dreams...and what the hell Lynch was up to with that series finale! It's based on some thoughts I posted in my earlier rant's comments Monday night, and then expanded into a...
