BUDDHA AND THE SLUT


What happens when an award-winning writer hits 'eject' on the 9 to 5, grabs a backpack, and dives head-first into the uncharted world of 'digital nomads'?

After 7 YEARS in Asia, Europe, and parts unknown, BROOKE BURGESS (Broken Saints, Becoming, The Cat's Maw) shares candid tales of culture shock, creative inspiration, sex and relationships, psychedelics and spirituality, and much MUCH more!

It's a mid-life renaissance man's 'Eat, Pray, Love' (with the naughty bits still hangin') — it's BUDDHA AND THE SLUT.

 

May 20, 2017

Welcome to BUDDHA AND THE SLUT. I’m your host, Brooke Burgess.

You might know me from videogames, web stuff, the miracle of Facebook, the Shadowland Saga, or your Mom. If not? Then visit brookeburgess.com. Or stalk me on Google like a normal person. Jesus, the entitlement today! I blame fake news. And millennials. And Joe Rogan for teaching me that penis pills and the Fleshlight are things.

So…what’s this show gonna be about, you ask? Well, you can expect painfully true tales — funny, freaky, fucked-up ,and mostly at my expense — of life imitating art, sex and psychedelics, and the digital nomad life i.e.: working out of a backpack in some godforsaken corner of the globe with decent wifi, sketchy law enforcement, and nude beaches.

Future episodes promise to feature special guests and audio exclusives, thanks to the power of blackmail! And maybe, just maybe, when the mood’s right, we will veer into the realm of the mystical. Share some very real and very revealing experiences — divine and profane, hence the title — of things both wonderful and strange.

Why yes, that is a TWIN PEAKS reference! Which means, if you know your shit from your shine-ola, this ain’t the worst place for this story, and my very first podcast, to begin.

I call this one PEAKS AND GEEKS.
