    My New Favorite, but…
    Really enjoying this podcast, and in fact it is my new favorite buddhism podcast. But please for the love of god, keep the politics out of it. No matter where you fall politically, it seems impossible to escape. Thank you!!!!

    Sound Guidance
    Excellent combination of how humans (dis)function and means of working with that for greater inner wellbeing.

    The best therapy I’ve ever received
    Josh Korda gets it. He is the real deal. Just by listening to his podcasts, I felt like he understood my struggles like no other therapist or healer has. I’m listening regularly to Dharma Punx NYC for several years, I can say that it is the single most transformative type of self-help I’ve ever experienced — and I’ve tried it all! He is particularly helpful with issues like rumination, perseveration, and overthinking/obsessive thinking. He’s also helped me be able to befriend my loneliness, identify when I am dating an avoidant guy, and move myself from anxious attachment to standing secure in my Self. Thank you, Josh. And thank you as well to his wife, Kathy Cherry, who offers amazing somatic healing and daily meditation groups.
  • jflobot
    Lots to Digest
    Thanks for your valuable time. You have a way of getting right to the point but in a compassionate manner. Took me a while to digest and sit with but I am understanding myself better. If and when I have the money to contribute I will. Well worth it. Mahalo. 🙏
  • trevor_y
    Transformative and Grounded
    This podcast is the best resource I’ve encountered in outlining truly applied Buddhism and how grounded Buddhist practice intersects with modern psychological insights into living a balanced, authentic, and rewarding life. I’ve often found Zen and other Buddhist philosophies difficult to translate in daily living, but Josh Corda paints such a clear picture of what applied Buddhism looks like. He also strikes me as humble, kind, and like he owns his humanity - something that is not found in all spiritual teachers Im extremely grateful to have found this podcast, it has been a guiding light for me during a difficult time.

    Changed my life.
    Josh has fundamentally changed my life with this podcast. Over the past 4 years, I’ve used it as a resource alongside my EMDR trauma therapy. It’s the perfect balance between information and experience. Utilize this, share it with your loved ones, and donate to josh if you can!
  • DaverMushroom
    Great modality for recovery
    I’m really glad I found this. Very practical and secular way for exploring Buddhism. I found this much more effective than the 12 Steps as a path of recovery.
  • Mr. Coffin
    Terrific Combination
    Josh Korda provides Buddhist teachings alongside modern day psychology - a powerful combination.
  • whipitoutnowboy
    Dharma and psychology blend
    Enjoyable mixture of the dharma and psychology in a how to approach to living in this world and with our reactive conceptual mind. Very humorous and frankly spoken from someone who has been there too. You have nothing to lose and it’s FREE anyway. Rick
  • Celticrain10
    Helpful, gentle and useful
    I have been listening to Josh for over two years and I really enjoy his scientific , Buddhist, and psychological approach as well as the meditation. It has helped me to change my life for the better.

  • ZigzagPath
    Thought provoking
    I found this pod accidentally and it became one of my current favs. Psychology+Buddhism is my jam! Keep them coming.
  • danielinsf
    Love this but…
    I love these podcasts. But dude, what’s with the background noise? The latest meditation related to attachment sounded like someone was banging pots and packing a suitcase right into the microphone.
  • odessc
    Insightful wisdom that actually helps
    The combination of psychology and Buddhist practice is something I didn’t know i was searching for but am so grateful I found. it’s the perfect fit for me and i’m extremely grateful for this podcast!
  • Tim murph
    Life saving
    This is a great podcast. I like how Josh combines psychology with Buddhism.
  • Acyl
    I wish I had learned the things Josh talks about in his podcast 20 years ago! I’ve been listening for 4 years, and his is still one of my top favorites. Truly a treasure trove of information, and the guided meditations are awesome. Oh, and I also love his sense of humor!
  • JaxMyth
    Insightful & Grounded

    Not your usually dharma discussion
    Buddhist psychology- brain science and Buddhism - if you took Psych in college - you’ll love this podcast!
  • JFOD, Bayyybeee
    Has been exponentially helpful in my life
    I’ve been listening to and attending Dharmapunx meetings w/ Josh for many years. It really is an amazing and transformative thing that I am grateful to have in my life.

    So much to discover
    Thank you Josh, your knowledge is much appreciated. I’m learning so much about myself through your teachings.
  • 3 buoys
    Always a Winner
    No matter what Josh speaks of I find a golden nugget. I’ve been listening since October 2015 and am so appreciative of his message and work and how it’s shaped my message, work, and life. Thank you and let me know if you ever head to Thailand again! Susie Pettit

    Punx Not Dead.
    I'm an old punk who traded anarchy for mindfulness. This podcast does the trick. “Forever in debt to your priceless advice.”
  • melsapop
    Really great stuff!
    Eye opening stuff. Well organized and coherent. I really relate to what Josh has to say. A lot of research goes into the sessions and it shows! Give 4 stars..sound quality could be better..sometimes someone coughs and I think I blew my ear drum.
  • NatPato
    Amazing Eyes Opener
    I would like to take the time to thank you for all the help you have and knowledge you have provided me with through your words and amazing mind. I don’t really have other words or Better words at this time, but you have safe a life in me with your work. Thank you.
  • Mom of Boys, New Mexico USA
    My all-time favorite podcast
    Josh, thank you for everything you teach and share. Your knowledge of psychology, Buddhism, and the brain is so great that your podcast is now my favorite of all time. I know that you must be helping so many people, as you are helping me for sure. I am so thankful for your book and podcast, both of which are truly excellent. I too came from an abusive background and I have experienced anxiety/depression, so after studying psychology, meditation, and Buddhism myself I have now come across your work which is exactly what I need in my life. Your style on the podcast is just like talking with a friend and I love this laidback and relatable approach. Thank you again.
  • HaveYourDay
    The no-nonsense truth
  • EddieSky7
    One of the best
    Definitely one of the best Buddhist podcasts out there.
  • Cookiejarvis
    Good stuff. Just gets a little negative with the republican bashing. I’m a democrat just don’t care for that part.
  • Mad genius 1977
    I 💗 josh Korda!
    After 25 years of failed 12 step attempts & extreme addiction problems, he and this program has helped me. I personally vibe with him much more than Noah, & love the cognitive science approach he also adds. The juxtaposition of Buddhism & science have saved my life. I hope to see him speak in L.A. one day! ☸️🙏🏼🧘🏻‍♀️
  • Bha0102
    Great speaker - but...
    Great speaker. Has good insight and is entertaining. Explains concepts in a clear and relevant way, and I really enjoyed the episodes, but.... the F bombs are dropped a lot. I’m not sure why. He is “keeping it real” I guess, but its just not necessary and puts a trashy touch on otherwise great talks. Does not mean others will feel the same, just wasn’t for me. Too bad for me because if not for, in my personal opinion, that sour touch, I’d be a subscriber. He is a talented communicator.
  • Kim🙏🏼
    Josh Korda is my current go to meditation teacher. I eagerly look forward to his talks. I find him incredibly wise, open and honest, funny and relatable. His words are wise pointers to truth and have benefited me greatly. He is well read in the field of modern neuroscience and psychology and interweaves these teachings very skillfully with ancient Buddhist teachings. Like me, he has overcome childhood abuse and addiction so he’s got street credibility in my book. Many thanks Josh! 🙌🏼🙏🏼
  • Lululoopsy
    Love this podcast!
    Always happy to hear Josh's talks. I love his insights, bluntness and humor. Witty, intelligent and centering. Highly recommend.
  • AppxSci
    Life changing help
    This podcast had helped me in more ways than I can share. The mix of dharma and practical psychological information is not only informative but actually helpful in the day to day. By far my favorite podcast and go-to resource for a modern Buddhist perspective. Also love the fact that there are no ads of any kind and no skippable "housekeeping" BS in any part of the podcast.
  • birminghamdrunk
    remarkably relatable, hysterically helpful
    after learning to meditate a little over a year ago i've cycled through a lot of apps and podcasts looking for the right kind of "no woo-woo" real life Buddhist teachings that Josh dispenses so effectively. i recommend this podcast to anyone who will listen, and there aren't many of us here in Birmingham, Alabama who will, but there are some! A++ Buddhist teaching with a scientific edge and emotionally empathetic wit that makes every episode feel fun. Thanks for sharing, Josh!
  • Eazy C
    A great podcast. Josh Korda provides a synthesis of buddhism and science with humor and compassion. Each podcast typically offers practical tools one can employ in dealing with a variety of challenges and situations. I recommend the podcast wholeheartedly.
  • Rayo72
    Makes my day so much better
    I absolutely love the talks Josh Korda gives. I send them to my friends and family and have many people listening to them. Honestly, listening to a podcast makes my day a million times better. When I take a break to listen to one of his talks I never regret it, I feel so much more focused, and usually use the information I received from it for days and months after. I give as big of a recommendation as I possibly can give to this podcast. I love the mixture of science and Buddhism. It is really wonderful. Thank you Josh and Dharma Punx!
  • Tricky_P
    I can relate to this Mr. Korda fellow. I enjoy the talks. I find the lack of Chintzy "meditative music" and the absence of clever editing wonderfully beneficial to receiving the information. Thank you.
