Best of the Book Nook: Mystical Dogs: Animals as Guides to Our Inner Life by Jean Houston
Vick Mickunas' 2002 interview with Jean Houston
Jean Houston made a number of appearances on the program back in the day, circa 1995-2003. She has had an amazing life. If I had to pick my favorite interview with Jean, there are many, I would probably choose this one because during this conversation Jean began doing some priceless impressions of her dogs attempting to talk, and even sing. Plus she told a really wonderful story about the time a famous Hollywood movie star tried to buy Jean's beloved dog from Jean's father. That anecdote alone probably makes this my favorite of all of our interviews.
