    Star Wars: Episode Zero - The Power of Myth

    Star Wars: Episode Zero - The Power of Myth

    Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are working backwards through film history, using STAR WARS as the starting point!
    This week on EPISODE ZERO they delve into Joseph Campbell's astounding career and teachings, focusing on THE POWER OF MYTH, a series of interviews about the impact mythic stories have on society, and vice-versa! George Lucas patterned his STAR WARS movies after the works of Joseph Campbell, and in turn, Campbell was one of the intellectuals who canonized STAR WARS as an important work of art.
    How does Campbell's work inform STAR WARS, and was he a little too quick to rubber stamp this franchise as the ultimate modern mythos? We'll find out on EPISODE ZERO!

Friendly Stranger 1995 ,

My Favorite Film Podcast

Whitney and Bibbs are both every funny and knowledgeable about film. I also love how thoughtful they are with their reviews and don’t feel the need to conform with the norm.
