Remarkable insight

Joseph Campbell is so much more than the hero’s journey. His explanations on mysticism and comparisons between Eastern and Western traditions, his recounting of conversations with gurus about the mystical position on evil and stupidity, his anthropological comparisons, all account to an incredible wealth of knowledge. Only someone with profound mastery can explain some of the most complex and arcane subjects in such simple terms. Having access to so much of it via this podcast is priceless. Thank you for doing this.

So happy to have free access to Joseph Campbell’s lectures again.

The Joseph Campbell foundation no longer offers the collected works on Apple Music anymore, which I listened to multiple times.

I am glad they now offer these lectures on this podcast.
