CBC journalist and Giller Prize-winning author Linden MacIntyre interviews John Geiger about The Third Man Factor on CBC Radio's The Current. Linden discusses the spiritualism of his own childhood, and recalls an interview he conducted with George Grant where there is a spiritual dimension.
From The Current's website: We started this segment with a reading from TS Eliot's "The Waste Land" a 1922 poem describing an arduous journey through a desolate land. Along the way, his narrator has a haunting experience. He encounters a mysterious, phantasmal being - a "Third" - as he describes it. Although he does not know who it is, or what it is - he can feel its presence. It was the real-life encounters people have had with this mysterious presence that intrigued our next guest. He set out on his own expedition - in search of those who have experienced this phenomenon and to try to discover the scientific explanation for what causes it.
