This Week On Enter the Muse, Musician Slade Templeton talks about his struggle with addiction, and how being admitted to a mental institution helped him to write his novel, Truth Of The Shadows. He explains what near death experience feels like, and speaks about returning to the dance scene, sober. How the birth of his new born gave him a new purpose in life, and what its like living in Switzerland. Nick and Slade discuss the current state of the world, the growth of the far right movement in Europe, and the dismissal of the director of the Olympics' opening ceremony for a joke he had made in 1998. And they talk about how it's crazy that conditions like autism remain socially unacceptable in some countries. Yet, being autistic and having conditions like ADHD often contribute to the kind of genius that makes a person great in music and other creative fields.
