My dear pal Sumi Loundon Kim is this week’s guest on the Buddhist Geeks podcast. As many people probably know, Sumi is the author of the books Blue Jean Buddha: Voices of Young Buddhists (Wisdom Publications, 2001) and The Buddha’s Apprentices:  More Voices of Young Buddhists (Wisdom Publications, 2005), as well as the former associate director of the Barre Center for Buddhist Studies.  Check out the episode here!

I did a show with the Geeks this past summer and had a blast.  You can listen to our conversation here.
