Conversations: Malcolm Guite - Lifting the Veil, and Keeping the Flowering Thorn
In this episode I am joined again by the poet-priest-scholar Malcolm Guite for a wonderful wide discussion about imagination, Christianity, the relative success of Britain's blending of Christian and pagan stories in contrast with the 'missed opportunity' (so far) in the Americas, and finally, the intoxicating world of King Arthur.
It was a great pleasure to have Malcolm return to the podcast.
