Hello, New Zealand radio listeners.

I don’t know if any clips are available online, but if any of my readers are in New Zealand, you might have heard me on Outrageous Life with Laurel McCulloch earlier today, talking about The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian — which apparently hasn’t opened over there yet, despite the fact that director Andrew Adamson hails from there and the film was partly shot there.

It was a fun chat, though I wondered if I explained C.S. Lewis’s thoughts on paganism, Christianity and modernity well enough; there’s a lot there to pack into a few minutes of soundbite, and if you’re not careful you can weird some people out, and I didn’t have the luxury of revising and tweaking my thoughts for clarity etc., like I did when I wrote my review. Thankfully, Laurel did refer her audience to my actual review, so hopefully that will help.

    Sorry I was working during the show, and I can’t have a radio on – let alone a Christian one.
