John Cleese is the legendary star of Monty Python & Fawlty Towers. He also has deep interests in philosophy and psychology. We grabbed him for a quick half hour conversation about philosophy, spirituality and the recent media storm over his tweet (first made in 2011 and repeated last month) that London "was no longer an English city".
Cleese is a friend of the historian Richard Tarnas, author of 'Passion of the Western Mind', who we featured on the channel last year: https://youtu.be/Ccle0QvH-Ds
He is also a friend of Iain McGilchrist, author of 'The Master and His Emissary' whose revolutionary work we've featured on a number of occasions: https://youtu.be/fI1ngqwH5us
