John Berger and Susan Sontag’s delicious shoptalk and big hair

What a fabulous conversation this is, between two giants we’ve lost. You see here, in this quiet, quietly intense, intensely curious conversation — in which (a true rarity) the act of listening is every bit as concentrated as the wonderful talk — why these two have long been touchstones for so many people who came of intellectual age in ‘70s or ‘80s. This is just delicious. Drop in anywhere and you find yummy.

I’d never seen this before, didn’t know it existed, and am so grateful to @muhus, who curates one of my favorite Tumblrs, for pointing it out.
