AAJ Podcast: Narnia Code (Single Interview w/ Dr. Ward) 2015r
The C.S. Lewis Minute blog began back in late 2011 as a way for me to share my renewed interest in reading books by C.S. Lewis. At the time I decided to merely share brief reflections in the form of a 60 second podcast where I also included the text of the show. I had previously begun the year before another blog that had quiz questions about Lewis and his works. This eventual lead to interviewing a variety of book authors and another place online to combine everything. EssentialCSLewis.com now supersedes this blog, but because a lot of people are still following it, I occasionally post here to remind those of what’s available there.
From my All About Jack Podcast – Dr. Michael Ward’s name was virtually unknown ten years ago. Today he’s considered one of the top C.S. Lewis scholars and that’s because of his landmark work Planet Narnia and the sequel that adapts that material, The Narnia Code. This latter book was actually first a TV special on the BBC before coming out on DVD. William O’Flaherty spoke with Dr. Ward in 2012 about all this, focusing mostly on the book version of The Narnia Code. Since then Michael has been on the show several times. Hear the difference between these works and about his favorite works from Lewis.
