“Thanks for ‘Chaucer Today.’”

Swapping stories with my friend Mike Gold this afternoon, I told him one of my favorite interviews of all time put me in the same room with Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy creator Douglas Adams and Monty Python alumnus Terry Jones in 1997.

Mike said Neil Gaiman would appreciate hearing it, and I realized this particular interview didn’t have much of a home on the Internet.

So here it is.


If you enjoyed this, listen to my first encounter with Douglas Adams in 1992, when he was promoting his book Mostly Harmless.

And hear more of my conversations with thought leaders on this website, in Apple Music, on Spotify, via your favorite podcast player and at Chicago Public Square.
