Even though GARY LACHMAN has already appeared in three episodes on our podcast, we never did that full interview with him (He spoke to us about Colin Wilson in that Episode 10 in our first season in August 2017, and twice on presentations of conferences he took part in).

So it is now about time to catch up! And here is Gary finally with us for an extensive talk with Rudolf!

Gary is the author of twenty-one books on topics ranging from the evolution of consciousness to literary suicides, popular culture and the history of the occult. He has written a rock and roll memoir of the 1970s, biographies of Aleister Crowley, Rudolf Steiner, C. G. Jung, Helena Petrovna Blavatsky, Emanuel Swedenborg, P. D. Ouspensky, and Colin Wilson, histories of Hermeticism and the Western Inner Tradition, you name it! He lectures regularly in the UK, US, and Europe, and his work has been translated into a dozen languages.

He was a founding member of the pop group Blondie and in 2006 was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Lachman was born in New Jersey, but since 1996 has lived in London, UK.
