Not a fantastic interview, but Herzog is someone worth listening to.
Such a comment is even better if it includes links proving he’s worth listening to. Got any for readers here?
As far as proving he’s worth listening to, I would start with his body of work before reading an interview.
If you have a way of watching 3D movies, I’d recommend Cave of Forgotten Dreams. Watching that film is the most moving experience I’ve had in VR by far. Otherwise, some of the films he’s known for are Grizzly Man, Encounters at the End of the World, and Aguirre, the Wrath of God.
I would say listen to the science friday interview last year. He has some very good insights into humanity.
I would have to back up xtian here and say his body of work stands on its own. Its hard to prove anyone is “worth listening to”. All I can say is he has some very valid and interesting viewpoints that most technological people might not want to confront. Think Black Mirror perhaps, only not as dystopian.
Perhaps this interview will suffice as proof:
Although not entirely serious, I love his appearance in Rick and Morty https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rw1cdRew-Zg
