[PODCAST] The Inklings and King Arthur (Sørina Higgins)

If you have read a variety of writings from Lewis, Tolkien and their friends Charles Williams and Owen Barfield, then you know they had more than a passing interest in King Arthur. In the following podcast learn about a new book, edited by Sørina Higgins that explores the latest viewpoints on their Arthurian literature. This massive book (500+ pages) took over four years to complete and includes contributions from Brenton Dickieson, Malcolm Guite, Holly Ordway and Alyssa House-Thomas.

Introducing Why Read Lewis

Why Read Lewis - Introduction GRAPICWelcome to a new occasional podcast series designed to encourage you to read books that C.S. Lewis wrote (or edited). Even those who have read a variety of works by him are surprised to learn he wrote more than forty during his lifetime. Additionally,  there are numerous books (mostly essay collections) created after his death. As you are likely aware, Lewis wrote in a variety of styles or genres. How many have you read? This new podcast will usually focus on a SINGLE work by Lewis with between three to five individuals sharing thoughts about it. However, because this episode introduces the series, it has comments on six DIFFERENT titles (as noted in the picture). Dr. Michael Ward, Brenton Dickieson, Sørina Higgins, Dr. Crystal Hurd, Dr. Jerry Root and Mark Neal share in this introductory show.

Keynote Highlights Taylor Colloquium 2016

Taylor 2016 Highlights

Here’s another podcast featuring content from the recent 2016 Taylor Colloquium. This time it’s highlights from each of the three keynote addresses. That is, about fifteen minutes  of the talks are provided in this show. You’ll hear Diana Glyer first as she talks about the process of writing and how Lewis and Tolkien often differed. Next is Sornia Higgins’ presentation on the life of Charles Williams and finally, the last third of this podcast comes from Colin Duriez’s speech on the critical friendship of Lewis and Owen Barfield. Please note that the last talk by Colin is more difficult to understand, as the place it was recorded in was different than the others and it turned out worse than expected.

Taylor Colloquium 2016 Panel Discussion

Taylor 2016 PANEL

What follows is the panel discussion from the 2016 Taylor Colloquium that was held at Taylor University in Indiana just a few weeks ago.  Joe Ricke moderated the session with the featured keynote speakers, Diana Glyer, Colin Duriez, and Sorina Higgins. Those attending will recall that Carol Zaleski joined in via the Internet, however the quality of the audio on my recording was too poor to include; so none of her comments are included in this podcast. Other than that, all of the panel discussion content is provided in the show.
