Today, on CBC’s The Sunday Edition, Michael Enright interviews Richard Dawkins. If you miss it on May 13, 2007, the conversation will likely end up on the shows podcast or its archived selection of interviews.
Among those you’ll find links to a few interesting RealAudio downloads. My recommendations:
- Karin Wells’ Conversation with Dr. Norman Doidge on his book The Brain That Changes Itself (Apr 29/07)
- Atheists: In Their Own Defense – Produced by Frank Faulk (Apr 15/07)
- A Conversation with Philosopher Charles Taylor (Apr 8/07)
- A Conversation with Lawrence Wright, Author of The Looming Towers (Apr 8/07)
There is a chance the interview with Dawkins will not end up on any CBC website, because the show hasn’t adopted an open access approach to its content. Like its companion, Ideas, the show has a rather antiquated notion about selling shows as cassettes.
Follow-up: Enright, who likes to feature Catholic themes on his program, tries to line up a few traps for Dawkins. His only success is to get Dawkins to admit exaggeration when comparing atheists ‘in the closet’ now with homosexuals of decades past.
