First Podcast Interview

Updated: Jun 9, 2023

Yesterday, I was interviewed on the “Love is the Author” podcast by host Jamee Carpenter. I was surprised by how much fun it was! Jamee is a delightful podcaster, who knows how to put a guest at ease. He asks good questions, has a great, explosive laugh, and cares deeply about people and the dharma. He got me talking about my Buddhist journey, my time studying with Trungpa Rinpoche and other teachers, and Into the Mirror.

This is the description of the episode on Instagram:

Andy Karr is the author of the forthcoming @shambhala_publications release Into the Mirror: A Buddhist Journey through Mind, Matter, and the Nature of Reality, out May 23. He is a Buddhist teacher who studied under Shunryu Suzuki Roshi and Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche before moving to Paris in 1979, where he co-founded the first Shambhala Center in France. Andy is a dharma photographer who co-authored a book on the subject: The Practice Of Contemplative Photography (Shambhala Publications). On episode 58, Andy and Jaymee nerd out on Buddhism taking root in the west, share their fascination and fandom of Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse Rinpoche, and Andy reads an ancient Buddhist scripture that proves Love Is The Author of all!!!

You can listen to the episode here, or wherever you get podcasts.
