Christopher G. Moore on Bangkok, Creativity & Storytelling [Season 3, Episode 43]

2019-01-21T21:30:46+07:00January 23rd, 2019|Bangkok Podcast Season 3, Interviews|2 Comments

Greg interviews author and noted man-about-town Christopher G. Moore, who returns to the show after appearing in Episode 44 of Season 1. In a wide ranging and philosophical discussion, Greg and Christopher dive into all the bells, whistles, and otherwise that come up in the complicated, messy, and very rewarding journey to putting down a story on paper and making it relatable, exciting, and new.

They discuss the creative process, the need for writers to create empathy in their characters, the effect of social media on attention span, ‘theory of mind,’ the endless intricacies of Bangkok, ‘free will,’ and how curated content on the Internet constantly feeds us things we are already interested in.

Christopher also gives us a preview of his latest nonfiction work Rooms, which explores the way that living indoors has transformed human psychology and culture over the last six thousand years. ‘Narrow’ would not be a good word to describe Christopher’s endlessly curious mind!

As always, the podcast will continue to be 100% funded by listeners just like you who get some special swag from us. And we’ll keep our Facebook, Twitter, and LINE accounts active so you can send us comments, questions, or whatever you want to share.

    Wonderful Interview. Christopher is an intellectual treasure. I have heard of him and known of him through my oldest friend on Earth who emotes, dovetails and creates in their Bangkok realm. I have been enamored with the romantic notion of these ex pats, vicariously, for decades. I was smitten and inspired by “Heart talk.” I use the book like a talisman to confirm higher aspirations and to sweeten my palette on grimmer days when the world is pushing against love. I am reading “Rooms” at this time and finding the same depth and validation for another subject that I personally adore. “Rooms” should be added to the “A”rchitectural curriculum. It is the newest addition to my “A”rchitectural library. Thanks again for the coverage. Joy, love and Humanity.
