NPR’s TED Radio Hour: Star Wars Mythology + More


In the light of the highly anticipated release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Guy Raz of NPR’s TED Radio Hour takes a look back at Joseph Campbell’s Hero’s Journey and how it influenced George Lucas as he created the mythology of Star Wars.

Some of the questions that will be answered in this TED Radio Hour episode are:

– How Does A Hero’s Journey Begin?

– How Can Mentors Turn An Uncertain Journey Into A Heroic One?

– Is Forgiveness The Ultimate Test? – in an interview with George Takei describing his time in a Japanese-American internment camp during WWII and his journey to forgive the country that betrayed him.

– How Does The Journey Change The Hero?
