   I wouldn't normally have found this commercial site - the podcast even has a commercial in the middle - but I am glad I listened to this interview.

   Bhikkhu bodhi is a charmer, and an institution. He is a literalist when it comes to having faith in rebirth, which doesn't to my mind square very well with what he says about non self. The interviewer is refreshingly skeptical, so it is a real dialog.

   If you are patient and listen for the whole 70 mintues, at the end bhikkhu bodhi calls out "the administration" for its anti-progressive policies, which I thought showed how even conservative religious figures with a real conscience are coming out in condemnation of the operation of our american "democracy."
