For the first ten weeks there was one podcast a week uploaded on a Tuesday. They were like a variety podcast. The first podcast titled May All Beings Be Happy was a general introduction.

After that, there were six a week and settled into a schedule which continued with a chapter and comments on Crooked Cucumber on Tuesdays. See the Notes on Crooked Cucumber page for links to online text and podcast chapter readings with comments by DC.

See Anecdotes from Zen Is Right Here for links to online text and podcasts of chapters from the book Zen Is Right Here.
