The Angry Therapist Podcast

No BS with Buddy Wakefield

November 21, 2019

In this special hour-long conversation, John Kim (The Angry Therapist) speaks with poet and friend Buddy Wakefield about the shape of life, the length of love and the metaphysics that hold us all together. This is a special one.


BUDDY WAKEFIELD is a three-time world champion spoken word artist featured on the BBC, HBO’s Def Poetry Jam, ABC Radio National and has been signed to both Sage Francis’ Strange Famous Records as well as Ani DiFranco’s Righteous Babe Records. 

Buddy has been a busker in Amsterdam, a street vendor in Spain, a team leader in Singapore, a re-delivery boy, a candy maker, a street sweeper, a bartender, a maid, a construction worker, a bull rider, a notably slow triathlete, a facilitator at Quantum Learning Network, and is the most toured performance poet in history.

Wakefield, who is not concerned with what poetry is or is not, delivers raw, rounded, disarming performances of humor and heart. He is now based in Los Angeles, CA, where he lives as a free agent pursuing acting and screenwriting for both television and film.
