BUDDHA AND THE SLUT

BUDDHA AND THE SLUT

What happens when an award-winning writer/producer 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 'Renaissance Dude's' Eat, Pray, Love (with the naughty bits still intact) — it's BUDDHA AND THE SLUT.

A bite-sized ep where I harness a creative technique to ask a timely question:  if MASKS are the modern symbol for our social and emotional WALLS...then what does YOUR 'wall' look like?

I've been a game writer and interactive narrative guy, in some capacity or another, since 1997. 23 YEARS. Let that sink in for a minute. And even with all of that experience, I still get asked -- more often than not these days -- to do a writing test. Why?

Because it lets them get your best ideas...FOR FREE.

With all the buzz surrounding deep-fake tech, the spectre of advanced AI, the entertainment industry leaning on animation to survive the Covid-19 pandemic, and even the infamous Snyder Cut ?! I have some thoughts...

With just a few weeks left to brace before the 'oldometer' rolls me into obsolescence? I wanted to reach out to my most loyal and loving listeners with a humble request.

This month's 20min Q&A edition asks: "Who are the absolute WORST kinds of travellers you've encountered in 20yrs of adventures?"

Americans? Brits? Aussies? Russians? Chinese? Frenchies? Spaniards? CANADIANS?!?

Fasten those safety belts, kidlets. It's about to get nasty.

If there’s anything I've learned in nearly 5 DECADES on this waterlogged rock spinning in the deep, deep dark for God Knows What Purpose before this soul of mine pops off like the last bubble in a dirty kid’s bathwater..?

LOVE represents something different for EVERYONE. And it felt like the right time to share what it means to me.
