Treasure Mountain Podcast

Treasure Mountain Podcast

Treasure Mountain is a podcast channel aimed at people interested in spiritual development from a Buddhist perspective. Most of the guests are practising Buddhists with many years (even many decades) of experience. Part of the aim of Treasure Mountain is to encourage Buddhists everywhere in the English-speaking world to look beyond the confines of their local Buddhist group and see that there is a renaissance in Buddhist practice and culture occurring at a global level, and that there are many inspiring teachers and community leaders across many countries adapting to 21st century life whilst trying to stay true to the origins of Buddha’s teaching. Treasure Mountain also seeks to raise awareness about some of the lesser known but dedicated teachers and community leaders and their worthy projects, and to provide listeners with an opportunity to give to these causes.

      If you can never get enough true crime... Congratulations, you’ve found your people.

      Bone Valley

      Bone Valley is a 9-episode true crime podcast. New episodes are available for free every Wednesday. In 1987, 18-year-old Michelle Schofield was found dead in a phosphate pit in Florida. Two years later, her husband Leo was convicted and sentenced to life in prison. Fifteen years later, previously unidentified fingerprints matched Jeremy Scott--a violent teenager who lived nearby. Jeremy has since confessed to Michelle’s murder. Yet Leo Schofield remains behind bars. In this groundbreaking podcast, Bone Valley host Gilbert King uncovers startling new evidence that Jeremy is responsible for a string of murders. King is the author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning book, Devil in the Grove, which led to the exonerations of four innocent men. Bone Valley is a production of Lava for Good Podcasts in association with Signal Co. No1.
