Adam Phillips interview

Back in 2009, I did an interview with the psychoanalyst Adam Phillips, author of Promises, Promises, On Kissing, Tickling, and being Bored, and most recently On Balance.

We discussed what a child psychologist wants for his own children, why he rejects modern technology like email, and why writing feels “automatic” for him.

The audio is here.

The transcript is here.

  1. Fantastic interview, the audio version doesn’t seem to be working though?

      do you know a good audio hosting programme that will allow me to post a clip at this length? They keep failing on me..

  2. You could try soundcloud? or even youtube? By the way, I wasn’t notified that you had replied to me. I just came back, 10 months later, on the off chance that it had been reloaded. Funny how these things happen.

    You could post the interview as a file for download through rapid-share, or possibly through this website? I’m still interested to hear it, if you’re still obliging.
