Broadcast on 30th November 2010

The author of Brave New World, The Perennial Philosophy, The Doors of Perception, The Devils of Loudon and more delivers a superb lecture to an audience at Los Alamos laboratories, effortlessly drawing on art, science and mysticism to express his ideas with tremendous eloquence.

Speaking Personally... Aldous Huxley

Here's a short extract from this wonderfully recorded album released on Lansdowne as a taster of Huxley's voice and engaging charm as a speaker.

  1. how do you download these things? I cant see any links anywhere.

  2. I found your links at The Internet Archive.

    However the links do not follow exactly the shows you have posted on your blog. You have some great audio, and it would be easier if one were able to listen/download from your blog. Thank you!

  3. Thanks for the comments. I have to rely on Resonance FM for hosting the downloads so it's up to them to keep them up to date. I'm afraid I just don't have the space to host everything, and once I've done the show I have to move on to the next one.

    They should become available soon, so please keep checking the the Resonance FM website.

  4. What a great find — sorry to hear you will be off the air for a while. I hope you get back to a similar project for your audience soon.

  5. Did your friend Sarah ever come through with part 1 of Visionary Experience? We'd love to have a chance to hear it.
