Inklings fans, take note: A recent episode of The Art of Manliness podcast featured an interview with Joseph Loconte, author of A Hobbit, A Wardrobe, and a Great War: How J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis Rediscovered Faith, Friendship, & Heroism in the Cataclysm of 1914-18.
The interview with Loconte taught me new things about the way Tolkien and Lewis viewed life and literature. I also was challenged to think more about my deeply held, Western-world belief in the supposedly inevitable outcome called progress.
Speaking of Inklings, you might also be interested in reading Charles Williams’s take on dogma—and watching a short documentary on Owen Barfield.

I just stumbled upon this. The C.S. Lewis Institute offers four podcasts by Dr. Art Lindsley and Dr. Christopher W. Mitchell in a series entitled Narnia & C.S. Lewis: Imagination, Reason, and You. Significantly, the first lecture is entitled “The Importance of Imagination for C.S. Lewis.”
