S. Lewis. Let's rejoin the conversation. So we filmed inside all the places that we talked about, like the bubbly and library. And more than college, you know, they have the choir singing some. So they had spent a lot of money and a lot of time, it was half a day to both write something to say a memorize it for the next day. So I was doing was just memorizing what I had written. And but I remember when we came to the end, they wanted to. It really was the beginning of these things. Often backwards, they were beginning to film me just on this stage. I was on a place just outside Belfast. And I say behind me, you can see all these ships and base. Behind me, you could see nothing because it was a cloudy day. So they took me out there, three or four times in one day, three or four times the next day, and I kept saying, behind me, you can see, and behind me they could see nothing. To find it, they said, we worked you to death. So we're going to send you home. But we're going to words, and we're going to wait for a clear day. And if we ever get a clear day, we'll film it. And we'll say it would be as though you said behind me, and you do see that. But it was wonderful to be sent home after that. But I wonder if they can put a seascape behind us. It's a wanted to. Post editing suite. Can you do that? Make that happen. Well, that documentary doesn't seem to me to be well-known. I've not seen it. I was looking for it on YouTube. I think that there's a trailer for it short trailer. But Peter Ustinov, what a great choice. Did he know of Lewis? No, I don't think he did. I didn't meet him. They hired him for the voice. He just had a peer in person. Right. Well, I hope that we can find a copy of that and get it reissued because it's just well, it was not just that. They did our second film too with me interviewing the inklings. Which inklings were alive at that point? Well, the Tolkien had he had died, but I then talked to two of his children. And one of them is still living. That's right. Here in Oxford, that's right. I've talked reporting veins very, very interesting..

Welcome back. You're listening to a special British version of the Eric metaxas show. I hope you're enjoying it. Here's more of my conversation with professor Walter hooper. And remember, you know, people ask me why didn't talking push hard for him to become the Catholic? Well, so he known him a long time. He was happy for him to become a Christian at all. And so most people don't know that what an idea that these two giants of 20th century literature would have been walking with their third friend Hugo Dyson on Addison's walk, having this conversation because it would clearly take someone of such long-standing friendship as Tolkien and really of, I mean, it goes with the friendship, but the idea that he respected him so deeply on these issues. Yes. That it would take someone like that to sort of tip him over. It still took a number of days, I guess this was germinating in his mind and then suddenly in the sidecar of warnings motorcycle on the way to the whip snake zoo. The penny drops and he says, I believe Jesus was the son of God. I don't know if it's 9 days later or something. But the idea that it was J.R.R. Tolkien who brought it over. It's one of those delightful stories of history..

Eric the taxes. I'm an Oxford England right now doing a special series of Socrates in the city, events that Socrates in the city. And I wanted to share them with you my radio audience. So now let's listen in to the Socrates in the city event I did yesterday or it may have been the day before I'm getting confused with the jet lag. But very recently, I hope you enjoy it. And so on and so forth. Thank you. Welcome to Socrates in the city, Oxford edition. Thank you. Thank you very much. Thank you. Thank you. I can not tell you how excited I am about this because for me, this is a dream come true. For years, I have wanted to interview Walter hooper. And it's taken me this long. I apologize Walter, but we're finally here in Oxford to do this. Walter hooper in case you don't know who he is, was in 1963. The secretary to C. S. Lewis spent time living with Lewis working with him and soon thereafter when Lewis died on the same day that the same hour that president Kennedy died, Walter hooper took on the huge immeasurable task of doing all that needed to be done to sort of secure his literary legacy to republish works that had fallen out of print. And really to edit his work for decades, it's been now. It's just gigantic. It's a lifelong devotion. It seems to me a calling. And for me, it's a tremendous privilege to get this time with Walter hooper. So please Socrates in the city, welcome for Walter hooper. We were talking about so many things, and I thought it's been such a joy to talk to you for these long sessions. I can not begin to tell you how grateful I am and how much this is going to mean to so many people to get to hear you, because you often speak, you probably will tonight or tomorrow to small groups and you tell these stories. But there are so many who don't get to come to Oxford who don't get to hear you tell these things. So I said, this is a crime. You have so many fans in America, particularly, but around the world. So thanks for making yourself available for this. I know it's been a sacrifice. I.

"This is a special Oxford edition of the Eric metaxas show. There is more of this conversation with professor Walter hooper coming up next. Maybe when the Met you this is the best of the arc metaxas show. Welcome back to the Eric metaxas show from Oxford, England right now. We're talking a professor Walter hooper about all things C. S. Lewis. Let's rejoin the conversation. You can never refute these things. 100%. There's always, there are always people who are sloppy and who will hear these things and so on and so forth. But yeah, for what it's worth, this has been put to rest more than once. It's very dead. But it's still interesting. The idea that to be to be so closely affiliated with someone's oof, it really strikes me as the idea for a spectacular novel. Sort of like the aspirin papers, I can't even remember the plot, but the idea of this literary king could do it. Perhaps he could. But I don't read his trash. No, that's not true. He's a good writer. But I actually don't read king. But I just think it's such a great idea for a novel, especially since I know that it isn't actually true in this case. But I just love Louis just that fragment. Again, it's just such a treasure. There's so many, there's so many treasures out there. We're probably out of time for today, I think we have another moment or two, you told me earlier that you'd had a conversation with a skylab astronaut. About the dark tower. Can you tell that story? I will. One of the most unusual visitors that I've ever had was Joseph Kerwin. Joseph Kerwin, who he's a medical doctor that is also an astronaut. And he said that he was, he was educated and a Jesuit institution, and he was led by he read Lewis science fiction, out of the silent planet, and the others. And this led him to become an astronaut. He was the doctor in skylab when he astronauts circled the earth for a whole in the late 70s. He had become very fond of the dark tower. And he spent his time, he had quite a lot of time in the sky lab. And he tried to complete the dark power. I haven't seen this completion of it, but he still, but he missed me twice and talked about writing. But the idea that he was influenced to become an astronaut because there haven't been too many of those by Lewis's science fiction trilogy. But he said that after they came down to earth from skylab. You don't mean that literally. I mean, when they got back, they know not when they reentered the universe. Went from the kitchen into the drawing room. But he said he and the astronauts agree that Lewis has a better gives a better example of what the earth looks like from space in the outer zone of planet than they ever could having been done. That's just amazing. What a joy to have this time with you, Walter hooper. For now, we'll say goodbye. And maybe it would be appropriate to have a warm sock piece in the city. Oxford, thank you to Walter..

"But if so, well, find it. My goodness. Well, so you come upon this scene. Now, is it paxford? Packs for the garden. The gardener. He said that about all these notebooks are. He said to the major, I'm pretty sure mister hooper would like those and the major said, what if he comes today, he can take them away? So I went up to the curls and he said, yes, yes. Said you wanted these notebooks. And I found so many papers that they would feel too huge suitcases. I said, I don't think I can carry both of those. Today, could I come back tomorrow and get the rest of know whatever you leave today goes on the bonfire? So excuse me. Excuse me. Why? Why do you suppose he was hankering to burn these papers? Oh, I think because he needed he needed to move into smaller house. So he needed to downsize. I should say today. Well, okay, now that we know that you did well, what happened? How did you get them out of there? I didn't know, and I was I was on a rich man at all. I had almost nothing to live on. So I dragged them the mild down to the bus stop. And then I got the bus and the town and dragged them into. But I'm strong, then I was only 32. And that made all the difference. You dragged these heavy suitcases filled with now was there, in fact, anything in there of considerable value. I was not only the 52 notebooks, many of which had essays and things which I published over the years. Can you give us an example of an essay that would have burned. Well, they were, yes, a number of the essays on prayer. And. On Addison are mainly literate essays. And where have they been published? I've been published in selected lists. Okay. Cambridge University press. So they were quite a lot. Lewis didn't save the letters that were sent to him but he did save a few letters from William important people like ER Edison, who wrote the worm of robbery, Lewis said corresponding with the years. He always cites that book as a tremendous influence on him. I've tried to get a copy and I haven't, but I'd like to read what Lewis read. He cites a few other things, obscure books, but that's one of them. Yes. And so you're saying that he did correspond with Edison. Yeah, he did. This Edison fortune preserved all the blues letters, and Edison's daughter and I, this is some years later, we got together, I said, I have from your father's letters to see us, Lewis. And she said, well, I have Lewis led us to my father. So we agree to both put both collections into the bodleian library. So it's a wonderful conclusion to a story. And have those, are there still letters and notebooks, diaries, things of that nature that have not been published? No, most things have been published. But those letters, two Edison all in volumes two and three of the collected blues. And then there were a good many letters from doctor Elsa's. And saved those too. She began corresponding with him in 1942. Bus that led to a long correspondence, and many of his letters, his letters to her, have been published in collected letters. Yeah. And then some of her letters have been published most of them by Barbara Reynolds, the four volumes of collected. This is a special Oxford edition of the Eric metaxas show. There is more of this conversation with professor Walter hooper coming up next. Yeah give me a piece of my heart and never have.

"Are. But couldn't spare 5 minutes with Pope? Of course I could, you know. So anyway, I'm 7. I went, in 1984, November, and had an audience with the Pope. I was terrifying. But he said he began by saying, do you still love your old friends, is Louis? I thought this was a very pastoral thing to say. You still love him. I said, oh yes, so to father, both friendship and affection. He said, oh, you knew I liked the four labs. I said, almost everybody in the world does. So he talked about that. But then he had read Christianity and many of the other works as well. And then he wanted to know from me. This is why I was there. What was he like? Well, I did my best to say what he was live. And at the end, I hope he would say something about Lewis. And I think he knew, I was waiting for him to say something. So with the end, he said, C. S. Lewis knew what is the postulate was? I didn't know what the heat finished. And then he said, and he did it. And I thought, that's the nicest thing episode about Lewis. He knew what his apostle it was, and he did it. Because you can know what your posture that is and not do it. But here's a man who did it. A knew what he should do and he did it. And he's also effectively calling Lewis and apostle. So what I've been going back to saying is that I realized from the degree on the humanism that Catholics were now free to read Lewis and they began when many of the anglicans and many other denominations were called up and in liberalism, there were some new readers of C. S. Lewis, and I was keen to catch those new readers. So I went to every conference that was I was invited to give talks on Lewis, and when I went and joined Alice von Hildebrand in 1989, it's stupid. I found that most of the capitalists were bad because they wanted to hear me talk about the abolition of man. And when cardinal ratzinger came to Oxford Cambridge in 1988, I didn't see him at that time, but he gave his talk on the abolition man ratting because ratzinger. Whatever happens, Rhett singer. Benedict the 16th. As before he became Pope, as you know, he said the biggest danger we now face is the dictatorship of relativism. And so that explains why he would get so much about Lewis's abolition of mine. The abolition of man is absolutely prophetic. There's no question about it. Gosh, there's so much to talk about here. I think that when we say prophetic, people think we're talking about getting direct revelation. It needn't be direct revelation. It can be direct revelation, but I would say that someone's understanding can be affected by revelation, and it's kind of transmute it into something like the abolition of man. But Lewis ability to see these things. There's no way to describe it except prophetic, because he's saying things that are so deeply true, anyone might have seen these things, but it doesn't seem that anyone else did. And that's what makes the prophet a prophet, not that they're saying something that doesn't exist. They're speaking it and other people recognize it as true, but no one else is speaking it as true. For him to write the list of man so early, you said 42. Yes. It's an extraordinary thing. Well, I think you probably realized the first series of talks on Christianity thought about natural law as well. Yeah. They are on the moral law as he calls it. This is a special Oxford edition of the Eric metaxas show. There is more of this conversation with professor Walter hooper coming up next. In a run that comes wrong well it's good for the body and great for the soul he's right now in case you haven't been paying attention. The Biden administration has caused a financial crisis and they have no clue how to fix it.

What's Up Next for 'Socrates in the City'?
"Was the Socrates in the city event with Andrew clavin? What is coming up next for Socrates in the city? Man, that's a cream puff question. I don't have to think very hard on that. Andrew clavin, it was so good that in the, we have a patrons dinner afterward. We're, you know, people who help support Socrates come to a dinner. And we usually do Q&A with the guest with Andrew Cleveland. So we did that. And what he said there, like I was annoyed as I often am when people say stuff that's so great, I'm like, you're wasting it on 30 people. This should be filmed and so I had the idea of doing another event with Andrew clavin. Maybe in Philadelphia or someplace else because there's so much more, so it was so wonderful. Look, he is a gift. I want to tell you folks. He's an amazing gift. His book, the great good thing, where he talks about how he came to faith, and then his most recent book, which was very literary, he is, he is an astonishing human being and a genius. And I enjoyed it, you know, to say that I enjoyed it, is saying a lot, because sometimes it's just kind of, you know, it feels a little bit like work. I enjoy it, but there's a lot going on and stuff. I actually felt, I just enjoyed it. What can I tell you? I enjoyed it. It was wonderful, and we will get the video up as soon as possible. And folks, I want to tell you, by the way, tomorrow on southeast and city, we are airing my Socrates and city interview part two with Walter hooper. One of the greatest interviews I've ever done in my life, we aired part one a week or two ago. We're going to air part two tomorrow. And then we'll probably air part three another time.

"Anyway, then comes blessed Lucy of Narnia. And when I went to nanya, a few years ago, to receive a relic, you have to explain. That is a place called Narnia. It's an umbria, as 50 miles north of Rome. And this is where CS first got the name Narnia, was from this classical Atlas. And I've been to Narnia a number of times and they know a lot about Lewis. They do about one of their most popular saints is blessed Lucy of Maria, like Lucifer. She was one of the saints of the Catholic Church, which is incorrupt. Her body is under glass case. It's there. But it is still there. But her clothes are not in corrupt. And so the Vatican had to come up and change her Dominican habit. And so they gave a fragment of that a relic of that to me and my godson to bring to Oxford to put in the Oxford oratory. Really? That's what it is. But before I put it in, I touched the head of my blessed elusive minder, but I've been told the priest goes out but it might be wrong. So that just makes her a third class relic. So there was last night sleeping the same bed with third class relics. Wow. This is a special Oxford edition of the Eric metaxas show. There is more of this conversation with professor Walter hooper coming up next. We sure are. So happy morning when that's really hard. The best of the Eric metaxas show, welcome back to the Eric metaxas show from Oxford, England, where I'm hosting several Socrates in the city events. Right now we're talking to professor Walter hooper about all things C. S. Lewis. Let's rejoin the conversation. Well, by mentioning how Lewis came up with the name Narnia, you remind me of something we touched upon last time, the importance of names and words and how they're not. Let's see. How can we put this? That there's something more to words than just content. The connoisseur is as important and sometimes more important than the denotation. Words sounds summon things other than just facts in our brains. We know that Lewis came up with Aslan Aslan is the Turkish word for lion. Many people don't know that, but it's also, it's not just that. That's a nice idea, but the idea that it sounds right, what does that mean? That's it sounds right. I mean, if he had named Aslan George or he had named Aslan Bucky, it's just another name, but names have power. What do you think it is about Aslan or Narnia? Well, as long as the beautiful sound is short, this is remember, but it doesn't have the familiar sounds like of earthly names like George and Bert. You don't want to the king of the beasts to be called Bert. Or the Georgie or a Billy bar, no. Billy bob. It's a kind of a silence that never heard of it, but it's easy to remember as long and it's easy to remember, I think the other name. Well, this touches on something that our mutual friend, the C. S. Lewis scholar, Tom Howard, has written about in his really extraordinary, I think, classic book chance or the dance or as they say it here, chance or the dance. But in that book, he talks about something which is really being challenged, particularly now, especially in America, but around the world. And what he talks about is God's order and how when you make a statement like, well, Billy bob wouldn't be right, but as land would be right, the assumptions that we bring to that judgment are interesting. Where do we get them from? And Tom Howard would say, and I would say that they're baked in that we have an instinct for what might seem wholly what might seem noble what might seem base vulgar, comedic. And in his book, Tom Howard's book Chancellor, the dance. He talks about the Boer zoi as a dog that when you see it, it looks like nobility. Alliance evokes nobility, a hyena or a vulture evoke death, the way they skulk. It's interesting to think that Lewis is on to that idea that there's something that God has put meaning into all things. And that not everything is malleable. Lewis doesn't write about it so much, or maybe he does he'll remember where, but it's in all of his fiction. This idea of embodying nobility embodying vulgarity and baseness that these things are not what we say they are. They're innate qualities that God has created a universe with these inequalities. Of course, the idea of maleness and femaleness is being challenged today as though anyone can be anything as though there isn't even such a thing as maleness. But the way Lewis portrays kings and queens that they're very different in his world..

"Here's more of my conversation with professor Walter hooper. It's our prize that yours as much as mine. And was that for the last battle? The lost battle. What did that win? I picked the new big I think that then they'd be right now. The newberry? The new berries. It is. I think it is. I had been aware of that. That's amazing. My goodness. Well, you mentioned, I guess we're going chronologically in 1984 having had a private audience with Pope John Paul the second. And you said that that affected you greatly, and that four years later, as I mentioned earlier, you became a Roman Catholic. Tell us a little bit about that if you could. Well, it wasn't really just simply meeting the Pope, but I'm sure that played a part in it. But I had felt for a long time that the church which Lewis was a member of in which he supported so well. The Anglican church the Anglican church. Make Christianity the core belief of it. I think we're passing away from the Anglican church. And they were a symptom me settle once and for all, finally, in the Catholic Church. And I particularly wanted more dark triangle church. I wanted to hear just sin and redemption express more often than the ordination of women. And so I became a capitalist. And I had no backward glance, Mira I'm usually such a sentimental old man. I look back and think, you know, to be that way again. But this didn't happen with me in that case. I was so happy I wish I had been too young enough to jump up and take my heels together. Do you have to do it for me? You've said at certain points that you believe that Louis had he lived would have similarly crossed the tiber to use that term for similar reasons that he wouldn't have been able to abide the doctrinal mushiness of the Anglican church. Yes, I would say that. And I think it would. I think what he believed about Nick Christianity is really fun. Totally and the capital at church, much more as well, but at least that. See, I think he would have become a Pentecostal. And I'm sure of it. Because in 1988, I did. So no, I'm teasing you, but it's just interesting to speculate because Lewis is so beloved by Catholics. I mean, obviously by the evangelicals, by so many, but it is interesting that he really has found a huge audience among Catholics, Peter Kraft, whom I'm sure you know, and I know Louis is biggest fans, so to speak and promoter and Tom Howard mutual friend Tom Howard, who says hello. But it is interesting to think of that that there are so many and of course Michael ward. Who was with us talking about Lewis. So there's something there. I'm not sure quite what, but there's something there about Lewis and Catholicism, his ability to speak to people who are serious. About these doctrines, this old fashioned things like redemption and sin. Although I would argue, I think that converts to Catholicism because Congress the Catholicism tend to be serious about these things. I think that cradle Catholics tend not to be. So except perhaps for Alice von Hildebrand. Another mutual friend. He says the low as well. But she told me to rebuke you for this relationship you have with this cat. Can you tell us about that? You do have a cat that plays a central role in things. I lay in bed all night long. Cuddling my cat. This is, this is my wife. What is the cat's name? She's named after the saint and she's blessed Lucy of Nadia. And she's means the world in the she is one of my three cats. The first cat was urban the 8th.

"This is the Eric metaxa show. Today you're hearing a special Socrates in the city version of the show drawn from a number of events that I hosted in Oxford, England. Here's more of my conversation with professor Walter hooper. I can't think of anyone else literally anyone who's done anything like that. Can you think of anyone who moves in those directions? I don't think so. I think what Lewis did is he said himself, he said, what I tried to do, and my three cosmic trilogy, interplanetary stories, was to pull the rug out from under all of the former riders. Who, when they get to a foreign planet, you always find that we of the good people and everybody else on that planet amongst us. But in his case, he reversed it, really turned out to be sort of the monsters because they are planets filled with unfallen being. He liked the idea of trying to create an unfallen being. He knew it was very, very difficult. But nowhere did he work harder than they tended to, the lady of pearl and to try to make her interesting but unfollow. It's an accomplishment absolutely unparalleled and literature. I can not think this is why it seems to me to say that Lewis doesn't get his due is a great understatement. I mean, he has done some things to create. I mean, there are a number of literary images and images that he creates that are peerless. The idea of the floating islands to do that plausibly, the idea of creating these characters, the Soren's trigger. Just masterful, absolutely masterful, and yet it goes so far beyond that. He's doing things that to create an unfallen world and to try to pull that off in a way that doesn't make them sound boring. I mean, even Dante. Couldn't make the paradiso interesting. Or a tenth is interesting as the inferno. It's very difficult to portray goodness. Yes. In a way that's interesting. The idea that Lewis could begin to pull it off, you know, puts him in the first rank, I've never heard of anything like it. And I think the world should read peril andra, as I say, alongside the greatest works in the canon. What he was aware that it fair hard to create good characters. And he discusses this in his preface to Paradise lost. Why? Is it so difficult to create good characters? Simply because the bad characters survive in us, all we have to do to create a bad character such as let loose from our own souls and bodies all the itching and horrible thoughts that we are the infamous waiting just to get out. But to be to create better characters, people who are really good, we have to be good, ourselves, you know? Because you can't express much goodness unless you have a very good idea of it or unless you are yourself good. But anyway, Lou Simms himself delighted in good and he was able to create characters who really were good and interesting as well. Well, maybe as I get sanctified, I'll appreciate the paradiso more. But it is interesting that it Paradise lost everyone says, and it becomes a hack need kind of apocryphal, self fulfilling, half truth, that. Satan is the romantic hero in the compelling figure of Paradise lost. You hear it over and over and over again. And I think people say it because they sort of want it to be true. There's a truth there. But it shows that Milton, I don't think had the imaginative power, you know, the horsepower that Lewis had, it is much more difficult to do that..

"Well, Louis said this himself. He said, oftentimes, I have no description of various things. She is a response, but for having given form to these people like public grounds. That's a big deal. But she herself was very young when she did this. She had already done some work for Tolkien, and that's Louis knew about her. Anyway, he hired her to do the first book, the line to which the wardrobe, and she told me something very interesting about this book and what could happen to people. She didn't know anything more. She hadn't talked with the Lewis about it anymore. Just illustrate the book. And she told me that when she was drawing all those pictures of Aslan being tormented by the white witch and others, she had to rip up her paper because she kept weeping on all of that over the fate of asthma and it just broke her heart and she finished that the illustrations and then sent them to jeopardy. The publishers. And she said, about a week after that still bothered by what had happened Aslan. It suddenly broke on her, oh, I know who he is. It's Jesus Christ. And this is the way you get past the watchful dragons that you mentioned yesterday. You don't want a person to be told. This is Jesus Christ. I want you to see that before you begin this book. No, let it happen to you as it did to her. And then so when she actually takes in what Jesus has done for humanity, then it will break up on her. This really happened in a real world, and I am one of the beneficiaries of it. Wow, it certainly not heard that. Now, she is, is she still among us? I don't think so. No, she's not. She died a few years ago. She was a wonderful friend, she put a lot into these drawings, and Lewis said, really, you know, when he won the prize for the last one. He said, it's really our prize, you know? He was very generous about that. This is a special Oxford edition of the Eric metaxas show.

Right now, we're talking to professor Walter hooper about all things C. S. Lewis. Let's rejoin the conversation. So we filmed inside all the places that we talked about, like the bodleian library, and more than college, you know, they have the choir singing some. So they had spent a lot of money and a lot of time, it was half a day to both write something to say a memorize it for the next day. So I was doing, it was just memorizing what I had written. And but I remember when we came to the end, they wanted to, it really was the beginning of these things. Often backwards, they were beginning to film me just from the stage. I was on a place just outside Belfast. And I say behind me, you can see all these ships and things. Behind me, you could see nothing because it was a cloudy day. So they took me out there. Three or four times in one day, three or four times the next day, and I kept saying, behind me, you can see behind me they could see nothing. So find it, they said we worked you to death. So we're going to send you home. But we're back to a words, and we're going to wait for a clear day. And if we ever get a clear day, we'll film it. And we'll say it would be as though you said behind me, and you do see that. But it was wonderful to be sent home after that. But I wonder if they can put a seascape behind us. It's a wanted to. Post editing suite. Can you do that on some tall ships? Make that happen. Well, that documentary doesn't seem to me to be well-known. I've not seen it. I was looking for it on YouTube. I think that there's a trailer for it short trailer. But Peter Ustinov, what a great choice. Did he know of Lewis? No, I don't think he did. I didn't meet him. They hired him for the voice. He doesn't appear in person. Right. Well, I hope that we can find a copy of that and get it reissued because it's just well, it was not just that. They did our second film too with me interviewing the inklings, which now which inklings were alive at that point. Well, the Tolkien had, he had died, but I've been talked to two of his children. And one of them is still living. That's right, yes. Here in Oxford. That's right. I've talked reporting bane's very, very interesting. Her illustrations have become it's an interesting thing how that can happen because I realized when we were talking 7 years ago about the Giants and the silver chair. I immediately thought of the Pauline baines illustrations and they are really so good. They're apt, which is better than good. They serve the text, the beautifully. And the way she illustrated puddle glum, it's a funny thing to think that if she had an illustrated puddle glum, I'm not sure that I would know what puddle glum looked like..
Walter Hooper Was Every English Doctor's Dream...
"You had your work cut out for you in the 60s, when did you have a sense that this was going to be a long-term thing that you might stay here for many years? Was that something that you knew fairly soon? I think I did. After about a year. I knew it was for keeps. That it was not, I was not really here just as a tourist in the longer I was here on a mission. And one way when I remembered that my own father was already out of insistence. And I remember my family, I became very homesick at times. Very, very homesick. And I made a food myself to the first stock that I went to. I think I was just I was imagining a lot of major eels. I still do a bit. But I went to the doctor because I was so sad, and this made me ill, I thought. And I didn't know that he was such a what they call a heart prop. Away, heart, heart Protestant. He went to a churchman with even more heart than this one. Same abs. And anyway, he said, he put me on the spot he said, would you like to tell me what you think is wrong with you? And I said, I'd be happy to do that. I've got either mononucleosis or NA. And I said, you'll need to take a blood test for that. And you need to send it to the Radcliffe and firmware to have it analyzed. He said, thank you very much for that information. He said, would you like for me to tell you what I think is wrong with you? I said, fine. Yes. And he said, all right, I will. You are what every English medical students dreams of meeting and the American hypochondriac. Nothing wrong with you. Now get out of here. Wow.
Professor Walter Hooper Recounts a Story About C.S. Lewis
"When you first came to Oxford, I remember story that you went to maybe it was the bob land. I'm guessing, and you asked for anything by Lewis, but the term you used was Lewis, Louisiana. Can you do you remember that story? I don't think it's exactly as I told it. I may have asked for Louisiana, but I think together we worked it out. I worked so long in the bodleian over 50 years. And I was always working on Louis. So people who worked there called the readers by not by name, but by the name of the person they're researching. So I've called mister C is Lewis when I'm there. And I know a man who is Civil War Robert E. Lee and Hitler. Mister Adolf Hitler. You're kidding. Well, actually, one of the things about Hitler's. Is that the people that I work with have work with for years, these Curtis Brown, agents, literary agents and London. Well, they were Hitler's literary agents. And they have you're not kidding. No, I'm not. Curtis Brown where Hitler's literary agents. Some have they inherited they have the rights to they control the rights to mein kampf. But and all the children's stories that he wrote.

Tell me Eric, why is relief factor so successful at lowering or eliminating pain? I'm often asked that question, the owners of relief factor tell me they believe our bodies were designed to heal. That's right, designed to heal, and I agree with them. So the doctors who formulated relief factor for them selected the four best ingredients, yes, 100% drug free ingredients, each helps your body deal with inflammation. Each of the four ingredients deals with inflammation from a different metabolic pathway, and that right there approaching from four different angles may be why so many people find such wonderful relief.

Eric and the Late Walter Hooper Discuss Burning Significant Documents
"Wanted to ask you yesterday we were talking about how warning major Lewis was burning things. Many things significant things. And I know that he'd written you some letters. And I was wondering, did you bring those letters to burn here today? I did, yeah. Yeah, I did. Well, we'll end things on a bang. We'll burn warn these letters. It's an amazing story, and I don't know that I'll ever get over it to get the details of how it was that he was actually burning things that we now think of as treasures. We spoke yesterday about the dark tower and all kinds of other things. Were there poems that would have been burned? I think so. I think he was scooping up a great many things, but something I, because I had been C. S. Lewis, it sent me to Cambridge. This is before the burning. Had sent me to Cambridge to clear up his affairs because he didn't go. He wasn't fit to go back. So this was in 63 when you were 63. In July in August and in August, he sent me over there to deal with his cell various books. And he said, whatever papers you find appropriate to your own use or else destroy.
Walter Hooper and Eric Reflect on C.S. Lewis' Way With Words
"With Michael ward the other day about Reaper cheap at the end of the dawn treader getting into this little coracle and rowing away nobly beautifully up up the standing wave. And into Aslan's country. One of the most beautiful literary images in the history of literature, I think. And given to a mouse, a noble man. Another one. I did all these names I could just talk for days about the names, read the cheap. Where did he get the name Reaper cheap? I think it just sounds exactly right from this noble and martial mouse. So I mean, he must have just come up with something that some exact right. Well, because read the cheap, we think of PEEP, the way mice, PEEP, but the only person I can think of who does the same kind of thing is, of course, Lewis is very dear friend Tolkien. Yeah. Masterful, and it also has something to do with the idea that both of them had a very deep sense of language and etymology, the idea that Tolkien even invented a language that that's very interesting to me that words the roots of words were more important to them.
Professor Walter Hooper on C.S. Lewis' Take on Gender
"For Walter hooper. It's in all of his fiction. This idea of embodying nobility embodying vulgarity and baseness that these things are not what we say they are. They're innate qualities that God has created a universe with these inequalities. Of course, the idea of maleness and femaleness is being challenged today as though anyone can be anything as though there isn't even such a thing as maleness. But the way Lewis portrays kings and queens that they're very different in his world. Maybe you can talk a bit about gender or that kind of thing in his books because it seems to be so strong and it's maybe why some people don't want to read him these days. Well, they may not, but they're enough who do. But I think it was natural that he called the king of the beast. The king named the one who rules Narnia after the king of the beasts, Lion. You can't have a platypus, you know? But that's the funny thing is we know that. Most people would know that, but then you have to say, well, then, well, why? And it's just because it's something innate that we know. Platypus, that's very good. That's a great contrast. But he also was very, very fond of mice. He really loved the beautiful little quadruplet quadruplets. He said that in few may remember that scene in that idios strength where after he finished ransom had finished his tea, the crumbs fell on the floor, the cape crumbs, he blew a little whistle and these mice came soon. He said we want to get rid of the crumbs. The mice need food. Why not do that?

The Poltergeist Curse
"Movies. Obviously in poltergeist, we know, directed by tobe hooper produced by Spielberg and instant hit, consider a masterpiece of American horror film, right? And it's about the freeling family. That middle class family, but the nice dashing Craig T. Nelson as the dad. And the life gets turned into shit when a bunch of paranormal and vicious events occur in their California home. Remember the beginning of seeing that area they lived in that beautiful new development. Didn't look so sweet and peaceful, oh boy. Obviously they find out that the daughter Carol Ann is abducted through a bedroom closet by a group of ghosts who are under the control of the monster demon called the beast. And then they learn that their house sits atop a Native American burial ground, so they spend their time trying to retrieve Carol Ann while they try to stay sane. They get smacked around and terrorized, and it's one of those movies you never forget watching. With that success came very creepy, mystique that the film is shrouded in real life tragedies. And some people call it a curse. Forecast members died during and soon after the film filming of this movie. How these movies. But the majority of the fuel for the alleged curse, it comes from the deaths of a bunch of cast members. Four people died during and soon after the filming. Two of them were tragic where highly unexpected and very puzzling. So a lot of fans began to think, um, this trilogy has some eerie
Why Is the FDA Attacking a Safe, Effective Drug?

Hooper david henderson is with the hoover institution at stanford senior health economist with president reagan's council of economic advisers and hooper. Charles hooper is president of objective insights. A firm that consults with pharmaceutical clients. Why is the fda attacking a safe effective drug. The subheading ivermectin is a promising cova treatment and prophylaxis but the agency is denigrating. So while they're telling you well you know what the vaccine really doesn't protect you that much you need to wear a mask can't be around. People are infected. And you'll probably need a booster shot and we don't know how it will handle the variant. In the meantime. I've been taking ivermectin for over a year as exactly described as a prophylaxis. I've been around people with covert. I did know social distancing. No mask wearing within my own home. I didn't get a sniffle earlier this year. The agency that the fda put out a special warnings that you should not quote you should not use ivermectin to treat or prevent cova. Nineteen i charge. The fda with killing tens of thousands of americans would that statement plus shattering the economy because of took ivermectin so fewer so many fewer would be hospitalized.

I'll get their lunch order now so we can pick it up later and as a. Hey guys want lunch from jersey. Mike's and it was like eight. Am and they were so confused. It was like. I'd said something that made no sense and i was like. Oh yeah dismissed them any fucking sense at all to take someone's lunch or at the crack of dawn like people want lunch at lunchtime. Yeah this was a big problem because people would come and just like look at it and be like. I don't want to look at this right now. And then you'd have to be like pleased. This takes this is like a three hour process to do you. Don't you don't understand how long this takes to do. We have to go type them up. Facts them and then go and get them we into to fax them. Why did you fax machines. Wow most restaurants do the places you'd have faxes anymore. I don't know why we did it that way. Why didn't we think it was. I think it was just that it was the same simpson's office that got set up in one thousand nine hundred nine ray and there was just a fucking facts machine and original concept homer and bart were were drawn on the wall and it was just. It was chaotic. I mean there's there's gotta email it now is is my guest but even two thousand seven to two thousand ten. We were faxon. We were away some institutional inertia that's You know you get like bureaucracy gets set up and then just keeps that that was a whole thing with the when they were trying to get like the kovac's they were trying to get the kobe tasks like an emergency approval for it and the fda was like we need a physical copy of this. You need to like type this up in print this out an email it to us and also send us a cd rom with the same info and they're like it's a fucking we're trying to skirt and then so they had the labs like fucking scrambling to put together paper documents just to satisfy this bureaucracies way of doing things. It's so fucking. Yeah you hear about these shows that went on for years and years and it's like oh yeah they still print everything out and do edits with pencil like it's just like it's it's that frozen in time now hoops. Yeah it's terrible. I mean the industry's bad. We all know this. We saw it. From the gr- we saw it from the ground level. And it just gets worse as you move up it and we're not helping now. No we're gonna we're gonna fire robert per singers asa. We're we're continuing the cycle walks. It's fucked up. It's true yeah. It's what happens hoops right now. I don't wanna freak people out now but you're in peaks before we get before we move onto this. Can i just see if i can recall your lunch order. Wow wow i mean yes please i. It popped into my head while we were talking about having. We're talking about getting lunches okay. Let's see you didn't you. Do we have enough storage on the server for a couple of hours just audio no promises. But i'll see what i can do. One was definitely you hold on a second. We're going to. We're going to bring in the micro machines guy so that we can decide okay. You're talking about raiders. Getting as much food as they want. I would like to point out that you also did that match. Yeah no shit okay good. So you always got the veggie plate right with w. yes yes. Veggie played double hooper's. No i'm i i would somewhere. I'm ashamed of you. i divulging the truth. you got a veggie play. what the is it triple. Ram i got i got it was a triple triple renault. Veggie triple rancho allan no straw. I got a fruit plate with cottage cheese. Time you did you did that you. Also i'm telling you brought in the veggie plate when you decided that i cross my heart you're thinking of this is also now that i think about it. There is plenty of overweight. gentlemen who work the simpsons. I'm sure that you could be thinking. I thought it was wrong. I and then. When i remembered double ranch double ratched was you know tracks. I'm i'm not the double ranch guy. I'm not i. I'm not doing this. Tell me in the cafeteria yes. I think you should call tony in the cafeteria. Is he going to be on my side. We're we're buddies. Yeah i mean he he he probably does like you more but all right so that's only one part of it. Okay so this is. This is cheese. Uses me yeah well. So what's the other one. You got more than one thing and single day. So so yeah. I know a whole lot of saying great so moving on but i got to be clear that if i got more than one thing every day usually i was going i was going to the restaurant. I always got more than one thing. And i would bring stuff home to the birthday boys. I would bring stuff home. And i would feed people. It was great. Give her own robin hood. You can't go okay okay. That's true you would always get stuff from the restaurant and from the commissary. Yeah more like red robin red robin hood why i was to say slob in hud. But red robin hood is better. Slava hood sounds like a slob. In hoods sounds weird. You're you know you're just you're slob and hood for a little bit and then you ended up chewing some cream. God off boy. I also this. I know als- coffee order still. Why mitch mitch's i did do this is. This is the same. Because you're making seemed like the guy who got the most food there which you know that's insane. I knew some stack. Of course we know the celmins. Yeah yeah and okay so oh. I know you got double chicken breast with salsa. I did get a you know what you're thinking of me me and my like eating welfare i got i got you switch to the veggie plate. No i never got the veggie played. This is just straight up wrong. You fucked it up. That's not true at me. No no definitely not but also. I forgot that this was our relationship. I forgot tiny office at each other's throats. All the time like a writer or something and mitch. I would be screaming at each other. And then they leave through the screen door show around. Hey your mind. If i get a frosty get outta here homer. We'd yell was home. I gotta here all right. Sorry just wanted to find out if lisa did our homework. Hey did you see. I'm looking for him. March hit the road..

"Got a restart the broadcast oh did end. That's probably why he does like limited series. It's i don't know exactly what he's doing over there. You can tell. I never listen to it. Hoops we we had a. We had my my last co worker. yelled at me and almost made me cry and again this is about me isn't it. I mean you to. And then and then the the mike my co workers saw and told and told my boss and then because of that she kinda got fired but you came in after the fact not too much dirt but you came in after the fact and we got along we i i love i love working with you and we hung out and then you did you see be stuff. You're very funny writer director in we hit it off. It was great. Yeah i mean. I think that that simpson's jaw was really hard. Because i had a very difficult co worker and i had to learn to persevere and now looking aquarium i felt like crying every single day. I just i got up every day and went to work. I did the job and you know now here. I am aghast. I'm always jesus fucking bunch of as are moving back home right now. They're offering hooper. You have any specific good food memories. I mean it was a place where you could eat pretty much. You wanted to on a daily basis. The hollywood the people we talked about it a lot in here but the in writers rooms is just insane. The amount of food you get but also by the way. I am turning red. I've i've seen this before. The podcast started. But i'm turning. I'm turning red. I don't look particularly read relation. mitch bureaus a-share could i when violet. It's like the strawberry strawberry. What charlie and the chocolate factory when she's when she's turning violet. That's what i look like. I live beauregard. Feel okay i mean no no never not really ever never feel great are you. Do you need a break if you wanna get a water. Something we'll push. I got a coq mini. That should work it. That's the same thing you said that. I'm not a big water drinker which you are right. I'm trying to drink more water. I like i said i got a half gallon. I got a half gallon. Water container ram. Here's the thing about water mitch You need it to live i. I know this is a great point. I i'm drinking. i'm drinking more of it. I'm not just looking at it like you said before. The show started so hoops. What is what are some of your. What are some of your all-time food memories working over there at simpson's or just in general it's funny that you should ask about simpson's food because the other day i got a flyer at my apartment. Endless feeless for chin-chin. I don't even know. I don't even know where isn't it. It's on the west side right. I i think it's in brentwood. Yeah it's a chinese restaurant. So i i didn't really read the flyer because i was terrified and i i can't. We had too much jinshan. I'm out. But i just thought. How did they find me to go. Pick up an order. That was one of my less favorite places i think. Kinchen i think they go. To chin-chin i think the kardashian family goes to chin-chin in oj miniseries because it was for a time. It was like yeah. There's a location. I think the location. Yeah is there is one in west hollywood. Now beverly hills brentwood so these are all the kind of tory areas. Maybe there was a new one. And that's why they sent me well anyway. Made me think of you. It's crazy that i mean we. I've talked about it on here but like people. I don't even understand like the way that we would basically get a restaurant at the beginning of the day at ten. Am or whatever and then you would ask forty people for their lunch orders and while you were getting it they would also tell you some stuff that they get from the commissary. They could get whatever they you know. Basically whatever they want it from a restaurant than whatever they want from the fox commissary so you have you have this giant just just a giant legal pad that you draw a line down the middle and you write their name and then you write what they want from each place and you're getting like forty sometimes fifty people's lunches ba- back when it was back in the day when you could get you could get up to as many fifty as many as fifty people's launches and you got to go and get that shit and it's it's fucking crazy. It is truly. It is not easy to do. It's insane. it's too much one. Person i might. In the first week i was there. I was so overwhelmed. Having to get get so many launches carry them to my car. Carry them into the kitchen. Like make sure who produced dishes were just. These are just mine right. So he's back. In fact before i started. I had a test months where i would go get food for you every day every day. It was overwhelming. But you know what. I did it up. Tom gamel tax that way of doing so. It's a thing that i've only encountered in the workplace in hollywood. Is the idea that you will have a big lunch order. That goes in as basically your first order of business day. And that's whether you're the person picking up the order or or taking everyone's order or just a just a a worker there who is putting your lunch order and on the on the lot and it's such a strange like mindset to get yourself into where you're like you're getting into work and i've i've had jobs where you get in and it's like eight. Am because it's like you know you're you're seven am. You're starting early and the first thing you see is a lunch menu. And you're like what am i to want to eat like five hours from now and you often. You very often don't have a say in where it's being ordered from these are these are first world problems champagne problems because a lot of times. It's like included as part of your compensation that you're getting the you're getting a free lunch but it is just a very strange thing to put yourself..
