The Five-Minute Buddhist Books

Recommended Host

Podcast Episode 70: Anatman, Commercialization, and Children

Brian and SpangleAnnouncements:

I’ve got some new audio equipment, which I’m still in the process of figuring out, but it should increase the sound quality of my podcasts. If you’ve been a longtime listener, drop me a note letting me know if this one is better or worse than older shows.

We’re no available on Stitcher. If you use Stitcher for your podcast listening, then add our show there and be sure to leave a review for the show with Stitcher. Ever review helps.

If you aren’t signed up for the email newsletter, just go to and sign up right now. It’s free and easier than ever to sign up.

If you enjoy the podcasts, and the website, and the emails, and the Tweets, and the Facebook posts, and all the other stuff, then don’t forget to buy the books! My book, “The Five-Minute Buddhist” and the sequel, “The Five-Minute Buddhist Meditates” are now available on Amazon, Nook, iTunes, and in paperback. You can get it from any place that sells books, so ask at your local library or independent bookstore if they don’t already have it on the shelf. It’s essentially the “Best of Daily Buddhism.” You can get it in pretty much any format you want. Just go to and follow the links. If you’ve already picked up a copy, please leave a review on whichever site you got the book from. Also, if you enjoy this free podcast, head on over to the iTunes Store and leave a review for the show, I’d. Appreciate your support there.

And now let’s get on with this week’s show!
