NSDJ-72 Barry Kibrick Interview

I have the great honor to interview Barry Kibrick who I saw on a PBS Sunday Morning program June 7, 2020. He had 2 back-to-back armchair talks that caught my attention and inspired me. He and his content

reminded me of the great Alan Watts radio lectures I used to hear on KPFA when I first arrived in California in 1983. When I first contacted him about this interview, he noted that Alan Watts and Richard Feynman had inspired him for his own productions.

In this “made for your car commute” short interview, we scratch the surface of some deep topics, such as consciousness, memories and legacy, finding one’s place in the world, dementia, and soul’s relationship to corporeality. And we share a lot of smiles, and yet also touch upon the tragic loss of George Floyd and hopes that centuries of racism will be finally addressed in more meaningful and effective way due to the ripple effect that his death will have in this particular crossroads of time and space.

Please learn more about Barry Kibrick in his own words, both below in his “Biography” and in this interview.
