Hosted by John Lobell, we talk with visionaries – people in the arts, technology, science, culture, and spirituality

More on what we might all be reading (or in my case, audio books I'm listening to).
With thoughts on the "canon wars" promoted by the death of Harold Bloom. We discuss his idea of "swerving" (deliberately misreading an influence) and his terrific book, "The American Religion" in which he looks not at what denominations people belong to, but what they actually believe. Plus we discuss the fabulous Eve Babitz, who I somehow missed in the 1970s, but all of her books now have great audio versions.
