Ginsberg and Burroughs at Naropa Institute

Another something magical from the Internet Archive: This is a 1984 recording of an Allen Ginsberg class with William Burroughs.
Ginsberg begins by reading from Burroughs's work, including his book Nova Express. Burroughs arrives and discusses writing techniques, including the idea that "Life is a cut up." He also talks about why he became a writer, Laurie Anderson, rolling drunks, biological warfare, weapons and retreats.
