A concept that, despite its innovation, has been somewhat marred with controversy.

A languid bit of banter from Rob in this long overdue installment of 'I Digress' - I guess one could consider this a 'classic' Workshed. A Rob, a dog and a Benny. 

 

This is a Blinkist episode so it is.

Joining Ian Lawton in the Workshed is Ted Meissner the Executive Director of the Secular Buddhist Association and host of The Secular Buddhist podcast.

In this episode we discuss the origins of secular buddhism, what that actually means to those of us who identify as atheist, yet have a healthy affiliation with Eastern thought and philosophy.

Can there really be a non-religious religion?
