I have found Noah's talks a refreshing addition to my other podcasts. I enjoy Gil Fronsdal and Andrea's talks from the IMC, and found Noah while searching for more talks by Vinnie.
I don't really find him offensive, but I can understand how some might. He isn't a monk coming from years in a monastic setting, he's a punk and brings the experience of a less refined and rougher lifestyle to his talks. For those who relate to this, the occasional expletive really doesn't stop me from hearing his message. It's who he is, and where he comes from. Anything else would be disingenuous, and expecting him to be anything other than what he is... Well, you know what happens with expectations. Thanks Noah, Vinnie and Dharmapunx/ ATS.
