Part Moon, Part Travelling Salesman: Conversations with Ivan Illich


This series was first broadcast in 1989, following an epic eight days of interviews with Illich in State College, Pennsylvania where he was teaching during the fall semester at Penn State University.  Three years later in 1992, a transcription of the entire interview was published as Ivan Iliich in Conversation by House of Anansi.  It has remained in print to this day and continues to attract interest.  In 2000 I presented a second series of broadcasts with Illich called The Corruption of Christianity: Ivan Illich on Gospel, Church and Society.  The interviews on which this series were based were published in 2004 as The Rivers North of the Future: The Testament of Ivan Illich, also by House of Anansi.
