Joseph Campbell - Mythologist and Storyteller

PBS has audio downloads of the six-part series from 1988 with Bill Moyers interviewing Joseph Campbell.  Mr. Campbell is an amazing thinker about myths and their power.  His thinking was George Lucas' inspiration for the Star Wars series.

Might be something a teen might get into listening.

I'd love to see some of Campbell's comparative mythology taught at the high school level. Every teen should hear what he has to say about parenting in the "Sacrifice and Bliss" episode. It could help curb teen pregnancy.
