Andrew McLuhan (Grandson of Marshall McLuhan)

The Human Voice with Bob Hutchins

Andrew McLuhan is a grandson of Marshall McLuhan, noted Canadian professor from the University of Toronto who was a pioneer in the field of Media/Communications studies. Andrew’s father, Eric McLuhan, was Marshall’s eldest son, who worked with Marshall from the mid-1960s until Marshall died in 1980.  This is a fascinating conversation about Marshall, Eric, and Andrew's work with the McLuhan Institute. We discuss media, philosophy, religion, and why the "media is the message".

S7E5 - The Digital Prophet: Marshall McLuhan—with Nick Ripatrazone

Device & Virtue

When Wired magazine started, they did the weirdest thing a tech magazine could do—they picked a patron saint. Was Marshall McLuhan a digital prophet?Chris interviews Nick Ripatrazone, author of Digital Communion: Marshall McLuhan's Spiritual Vision for a Virtual Age (2022). Nick is the Culture Editor for Image and a Contributing Editor for the Catholic Herald.Find out why McLuhan, in his mid-20s, left his nominal Baptist upbringing for a robust Catholic faith. Plus, are smartphones the new stained glass window? In the book, Ripatrazone writes, "For McLuhan, mass media was a form of Mass. When we communicate electronically, not only do we send information; we send ourselves." He unpacks this idea more fully in this episode. Afterward, Adam and Chris discuss how digital media provides a kind of "secular" communion, and whether McLuhan's uniquely Christian metaphor ultimately breaks down.Finally, find out whether Nick thinks the digital age requires us to reimagine the sacraments in a virtual world.LINKSNick’s book is Digital Communion: Marshall McLuhan’s Spiritual Vision for a Virtual Age.Marshall McLuhan’s books include Understanding Media: The Extensions of Man, The Medium is the Massage, and The Gutenberg Galaxy.Chris mentions the posthumously published, The Medium and the Light, as well as Douglas Coupland’s biography, Marshall McLuhan: You Know Nothing of My Work!TALK BACKFollow Device & Virtue on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.Follow Chris and Adam on Twitter.Support Device & Virtue.

Marshall McLuhan and Spotify

Critical Media Studies

What does Marshall Mcluhan's mean by the medium is the message? What does that look like when we hold it up to something like Spotify, and what does that mean in terms of how we consume and then process media? Barry and Mike discuss how the move to consuming music via streaming platforms such as Spotify changes the experience from the traditional (old) way of listening with physical artifacts like records, tapes, and cd's.
