Listened to Stephen Fry On How Our Myths Help Us Know Who We Are by Alan Alda from Clear+Vivid with Alan Alda

Stephen Fry loves words. But he does more than love them. He puts them together in ways that so delight readers, that a blog or a tweet by him can get hundreds of thousands of people hanging on his every keystroke. As an actor, he‚Äôs brought to life every kind of theatrical writing from sketch comedy to classics. He‚Äôs performed in everything from game shows to the British audiobook version of Harry Potter. And always with a rich intelligence and searching eye. In this conversation with Alan Alda, Stephen explores how myths ‚ÄĒ sometimes very ancient ones ‚ÄĒ help us understand and, even guide, our modern selves.

Just a lovely episode here. I particularly like the idea about looking back to Greek mythology and the issues between the gods and humans being overlain in parallel on our present and future issues between humans and computers/robots/artificial intelligence.
