The fact the this effort was made is a very good thing...however, I cannot agree with the superlative praise that has been heaped on the podcasts themselves. The intent and the effort behind putting these podcasts together must have been monumental and I applaud that initiative. But I am left with the sense that the speaker has over-distilled deep messages into mundane, almost trivial stories. Furthermore, there seems to be a lack of respect (eg, the tone of referring to the manifestations of the Divine in the Sudarshana Chakra podcast) and perhaps a lack of understanding that in the pre-Hindu Vedas, there were some literal Truths and also associated Puranic stories which, by design, were meant to serve the average listener in an allegorical way.
In any case, these podcasts left me with the same slightly sick feeling I had years ago when I watched Peter Brooks' Mahabharata...a travesty which mocked the lessons of the original and painted the heroes as zeroes while glorifying the characters who symbolized the downfall of humanity. These podcasts may not be quite as obtuse, but there seems to be a discordance between the smooth and soft voice of the speaker and the slightly superior or mocking tone used to address ancient allegorical aspects of Divinity.
If you would like a diluted perspective which tries to highlight the weirdness of Hinduism and its roots, please study these podcasts deeply. Otherwise, google "Hindu TRAC" and check out the more accurate studies being done by youth all over the world (Sydney, Australia; the United Kingdom; USA, etc).
