What the Critics Say

"Those familiar with the six-part PBS series on Joseph Campbell will especially enjoy this audio production. Moyers follows the same format as the TV series: The journalist plies the tuning fork to the teacher's mind, and we listen as Campbell waxes rhapsodic on the hero, the nature of myth, storytelling, the goddess, and finally what we understand of eternity. The dialogue, like the video, is filled with Campbell's wonderful stories and punctuated with illustrative sound clips, ranging from Star Wars to the Oum prayer of Tibetan monks. This production goes into greater depth than the video text, focusing more on Campbell's exciting ideas than his personality and work. Dialogue, of course, is the best format for ideas, and Campbell's insights into myth and religion are a most refreshing response to our age, so deeply troubled with the clashing voices of religious fundamentalism. Let's listen again to Joseph Campbell." (AudioFile)

    "If will effect your world view"

    In this age of hateful atheism against the holier than thou, you can listen to thoughtful people openly discussing spirituality before it became a red/blue issue.

    "Incomparable"

    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.

    "GREAT listen for one who may need direction"

    This is excellent for anyone who may want a history lesson on their religion and to see how they all tie in together!

    "Amazing"

    I truly feel God kissing me on my cheek when I listen to Joseph Campbell. His deep spirituality without religiosity is refreshing.

    "I miss him. So glad his voice is still in the work"

    Bill Moyers honors Joseph Campbell in these interviews. The conversations and both their voices hone in on the content in an artistic and holy manner.

    "Classic Joseph Cambell"

    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.

    "Articulates the greatest of the big questions"

    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
