'The Inner Rebellion' with 'The Mad Chef' Danny McLaren

Since Christmas time can be a tough time at the best of times , I thought I would share a positive and uplifting conversation I had earlier this year with Danny 'The Mad Chef' McLaren where we discuss the great outdoors, meditation, breathing, psychedelics and much, much more. Danny runs a project called 'The Inner Rebellion' which does various things like meditation at sunrise in pollok park , weekends away to Arran and online get-togethers. Danny became famous as the mad chef in Bloc where has Buckfast ice cream became a viral sensation as part of a Vice documentary. He is also a content creator, producer, DJ, chef, and most recently started a BBC pilot show called 'The Scran Van' . He is someone who has completely turned his life around and now by sharing his wisdom is now helping others.
