"Remembering Leonard Cohen:" fantastic CBC interview with Cohen biographer, Sylvie Simmons

Hi all,

I wanted to notify you all of an excellent interview I heard on CBC a few weeks ago.

It was a re-airing of a special that took place in 2017, where CBC journalist Eleanor Wachtel interviewed authorized Cohen biographer, Sylvie Simmons, at a public commemorative event here in Montreal. I learned many new details about Cohen's life that I had heretofore never heard--about his various spiritual quests, and his persistent struggle with depression. Give it a listen if you're interested!

I'd love to start a discussion of the interesting facts you, too, learned.
