Marshall McLuhan what are you doin’?

LISTEN NOW

Hello, is anybody out there? Umm … are we on the air yet? This program is part of Radio National’s Marshall McLuhan Project. Can you hear me okay?

Today, the life and ideas of media theorist Marshall McLuhan and the effect of those ideas on 1960s Canada. Meet his son, Eric, his biographer, Terrence Gordon, and fellow Canadian philosopher, John Ralston Saul, all of whom in their own way try to explain the man and his message, or should that be the man and his massage?

First though, we travel back in time to twentieth century Canada, and visit the CBC TV studios where Marshall McLuhan is waiting to be interviewed.

For copyright reasons this program is not available as downloadable audio.
