Hello all,

Has anyone used Buddha Torrents?

Any thoughts?

Thanks Chris

I've only just discovered 'Buddhist Geeks' so Buddha Torrents is news to me!
BTW, are you where I think you are??

OK, sorry to hear that!
Yes., Buddhist Geeks exactly!

A couple of American podcasters. Some of their stuff is great, the other stuff is...
I downloaded a great podcast the other night which was an interview of the producer of 'the Dhamma Brothers', it was fantastic. A few months ago I downloaded a review of SN Goenka's 10-day courses which I felt was seriously misleading. As Pink Trike mentioned on another thread, it is 'a mixed bag'.
I hope you're feeling better soon!
