Show Notes

What makes a hero a hero? In this episode, we look at Joseph Campbell's theory of the Hero's Journey as he discusses it with the journalist Bill Moyers. We look at what the Hero's Journey entails, why life is full of suffering, and how one becomes a hero in their own life. We also discuss theology, the ego, and J.R.R. Tolkien's thoughts on life and death. As always, there are rants and tangents galore!  Follow us on Twitter! @UlmtdOpinions
