Exerpt from an interview for Movies Matter with Dave Watson.
Dave Watson: Congratulations on a great performance in the documentary Memory: The Origins of Alien. You’ve also started Mythosophia(.net). How did this begin?
William Linn: Thank you! Mythosophia.net began as a website for the radio show I was cohosting for the Santa Barbara Press—also called Mythosophia—and a Joseph Campbell Foundation Mythological RoundTable® group at The Ojai Foundation. At the time, I was living with between four-to-eight other PhD candidates in a home we affectionately called, The Mythouse.
After moving to LA and beginning to chair a department for a new film and performing arts college that, at the time, was partnered with Relativity Media, I teamed up with Dana White to begin hosting Myth Salons. A majority of this audience came from our close relationship with the Pacifica Graduate Institute Alumni Association, which primarily consisted of mythologists and depth psychologists.
