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.

The irony when you search and dream and pretty much BEG for profound connection with others...but that same intensity of longing only pushes people away. Uggh. As a middle-aged male in a society that puts little value on men's need for deeper bonds and friendships, is it any wonder there's a troubling loneliness and mental health epidemic?  All I ever wanted was a 'best friend'. And maybe, just maybe, my prayers were answered...

Yes, it's true: I WAS cast on Survivor.   But, as is often the cast in my Charlie Brown football-kicking history..? CBS execs changed the format plan last minute, and I got the call to UNpack my bags   With the new season 41 out now after a LONG pandemic hiatus, it feels like the right time to dish on this crazy dream (almost) come true = 90MIN of dirt dishing on the whole wacky process, from audition tape right through to fina...

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 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.
