Blowies for Carrots: A Comedian's Take on India's Ashram Culture

Whenever whiteys find a guru, they end up being perverts. That's how it works.
Comedian David Boyle's trip to India's Auroville ashram is one for the books. In his podcast episode 'Day 235 - Blowies for Carrots', Boyle recounts his experience at the ashram and questions the authenticity of the spiritual movement and its white, foreign followers. Boyle's signature humor and brutal honesty are on full display as he reflects on the absurdity of the golden orb and the prevalence of white, foreign followers in spiritual movements.
He warns of the dangers of blindly following gurus, and offers a glimpse into the realities of poverty in India. Boyle's podcast episode is a must-listen for anyone looking for a fresh perspective on India's ashram culture.
