Audio recording of a lecture & writing class with Q & A with students at Naropa University. Poet Allen Ginsberg is also in the audience & asks some questions. Burroughs covers topics including paranormal phenomena, magic, synchronicity, precognition, dreams, his cut-ups technique for writing, & he answers many questions from students & from Ginsberg in a Q & A. He reads from some of his fiction & non-fiction writings. The woman who asks many questions near the end & thanks him at the end I believe is Anne Waldman of Naropa U.
This recording comes from Naropa’s audio archives available free to stream at archive.org. There the recording is listed as: “William S. Burroughs class on the technology and ethic of wishing – Part 1 (June 25, 1986)”, plus Part 2. I’ve joined both parts together in this YT upload & edited out nothing. The short silent gap somewhere in the middle is found in the original too.
