Reza Aslan's - the Believer - a must-see show on the CNN

Professor Reza Aslan crisscrossed the globe for his new spiritual adventure CNN series "Believer," where he immersed himself in religious traditions both familiar and downright bizarre -- to know "better than to take the truth claims of any religion (including my own) too seriously". I saw the first episode where he covered Hinduism, esp. a new sect (if we can call it as such) - the Aghoris - that rejects the caste system within Hinduism and don't consider anything to be bad, including eating human flesh, drinking urine.
It is a great show and I recommend his program to anyone interested in learning about world religions. More can be found by clicking here and here.
