Moyers and Campbell do a wonderful job of bringing an esoteric subject to the mainstream and making it relevant. It is one of the best programs I've listened to all year (and there are many). I will be searching for more like this.
A charming series of interviews of Joseph Campbell, but I can't quite recommend it to anyone who already knows of and loves his work. Compared to one of his lecture series, it's dissatisfyingly meandering and lightweight. For those who are curious about his work, I suppose this might be a friendly way to sample it, although I also found it was a little disjoint and wandering, like a typical NPR article. Again, you're better off just diving into one of his lecture series.
Having said that, I'll add that Joseph Campbell should be required study for everyone. This material covers basic human psychology in broad strokes, rolled up with the history of religion -- the one topic above all where some perspective and self-awareness is desperately needed. So, if this chatty series sparks your interest, wonderful!
This is excellent for anyone who may want a history lesson on their religion and to see how they all tie in together!
I've always admired Joseph Campbell for his fount of knowledge and passion. Here he brings a refreshing glance as well into his own spiritual beliefs and how he followed his bliss. Would definitely recommend.
In the simplest of forms with a very warm New York accent, Joseph Campbell is matched only by the sincerity and curiosity of Bill Moyers to discuss the potential in all of us to connect to great conscious
Loved this series on PBS when it first aired, and was thrilled to see it available on audible.com. Can revisit with Mr. Campbell often.
