Cats, Lawyers, Health, Women, and Roshis

About this Episode

For the first episode of The Zen of Everything, we explain why we started this podcast, and what we plan to do. We then explore whether cats are zen masters, discuss Buddhist lawyers, talk about practicing zen with health problems, explore the idea of calling the Buddha a "she," and explain what a roshi is. (Note: if you're just discovering the podcast, we recommend that you skip ahead to episode no. 6 when we find our footing; you can come back to the first five episodes later, but it took us a while to get into the right groove.)

Thanks to Kiku Day for performing our theme music.
