James Batcho is an author and philosopher.

He’s also a good friend of mine, and semi-regular Chiang Mai resident.

James is the author of Terrence Malick’s Unseeing Cinema. You might remember James from episode 5 of this podcast.

But we don’t talk much about movies and pop culture in today’s episode.

Last year, James faced a nightmarish health scare while teaching in southern China. In today’s conversation, James and I talk about facing up to our own mortality, facing death, embracing life, and most importantly, being here now.

This was one of the most thought-provoking and impactful conversations I’ve had for this podcast. I hope you enjoy.
