Moore talks about soul, dream, death, time, God

This week author Tim Freke, an old friend of Thomas Moore interviews him for the podcast What is Life? Freke is based in Glastonbury, U.K. Because of their friendship, this conversation touches subjects that Moore doesn't usually discuss in his public talks and it is rich with new imaginings: They talk for approximately 1 hour and 22 minutes. 
 At the beginning of the podcast, Freke mentions a session in Bath, U.K. at which Moore's presentation followed his own. Once on stage Moore talks about daydreaming during Freke's talk and how figures in surrounding paintings seemed to step out of their frames and dance at the session. You can watch this talk by Moore, The New Epicureans at Moore suggests we need a more expansive inclusion of the erotic to help with cultural challenges.
