The Poetry Show, Season One Ep 34, ‘Mythology’

On Two Rivers Radio, The Poetry Show, Season One Ep 34, ‘Mythology’, is  due to play. There’s some confusion cos last few weeks we were in ‘Murica. *IF* it’s Ep 34, O! M! G! It’ll be one of the best eps ever. Kit Marshall does Pygmalion. Like “Shy People”, by Laurence O’Reilly, Pygmalion is a poem i can hear again & again & again.
Plus heck the episode is also very good.

Tune in! Let’s ALLLLLLL find out what’s on. www.tworiversradio.stream

The Poetry Show Season 1 Ep 30: History Rewritten, and Stairwell Books Present: Bob Horton.

“Bob is on the Left”

First up, a playback of a show w Laurence O’Reilly and guest Tanya Parker: History Rewritten! Or, Tory Policy heh. Then we’ll chat with Bob Horton, scientist and poet, about his thoughts on society, history, science, poetry, and so on. I’ll also promote the upcoming Poetry For All event, this Saturday, March 24, at St Clements Hall, presented as part of the York Lit Fest.

Monday’s podcast is S1.30, and is HISTORY, the redux.
Yes, we covered history a little while ago with guest STEVE NASH, [and Two Rivers guest that same day!] but after all, history is constantly being rewritten. And if we don’t remember history, we are doomed to REPEAT IT.
or, if we don’t like it, we can just REDO it. Hence Trumpsky claims his inauguration was the BIGGEST ONE EVER (despite photographic evidence to the contrary)
And, your memories are someone else’s ancient history.
We were at an event recently, took place in a grammar school and students were working as assistants. As usual, I’m talking about politics: Trumpsky, war, angry people trying to solve things with violence, etc. I was talking to several thoughtful young people. “Well” I finally said, “you know, after 9/11…” and she blinked at me. “I was 1 when that happened.” “One?” I repeated weakly. “You’ve always known only a state of war”. “True, but that means I don’t fear it.” HER history starts about two thirds of the way into mine. And at least I’m still here to discuss the past! What happens when it’s not 15 yrs from now, but 115?

And then, there’s Bob.
We promise not to argue about GMOs. Heheh

Two Rivers Radio to Host Youth Singing Competition!

The Poetry Show Season One: Confrontation; and Stairwell Books Presents: Sue Lister Confronting sexism, ageism and homophobia, as our guest for IWW.

 

What synergy! What a perfect fit! Our guest this week, Sue Lister MBE (awarded for “Equality, Diversity and the Arts in Yorkshire”), has spent her life thus far confronting bigotry, and promoting feminism. Also, Rose is baaaaaaaaack and oh so happy to chat with y’all.

First up, a rebroadcast of Season One’s The Poetry Show episode about Confrontation. Also known as: “You! Yeh, you! HEY YOU! Come over a here right now!”
Or….the passive aggressive version:
…..

Okay. Wait a minute. What exactly does ‘passive aggressive’ mean? I’ve seen it to refer to almost ANYTHING, such as a note left next to a pile of dirty dishes, or to sarcasm, or actual rudeness which doesn’t seem ‘passive’ but just ‘aggressive’. As for leaving a note: What else can you do if the roommate ducks you?

CONFRONTATION. Do you LIKE having it out with a nasty waiter or that rude clerk? Or does your tummy tighten up at the mere thought of asking the GP to investigate the blood pouring out of your, idk, ears? Do you thrill at the combativeness? Or do you dread it?
When I was younger, I dreaded it. But then in those days, my mom made every debate an argument, every argument a battle and every battle was WW III. She seemed to enjoy escalating a disagreement. Now, I like to confront unfair ness but won’t go out of my way to pick a fight. How about you?

* * * *

After The Poetry Show, Stairwell Books Presents: Sue Lister. Sue actually has had a few poems published by SWB, notably in MORE EXHIBITIONISM, our 2016 anthology of poetry and short stories, edited by Glenn Taylor. Sue has been on the front line of a lot of battles, from fighting for equality (that’s what her MBE is for) to combating ageism, sexism, and homophobia. Sue is on her way to becoming Two River Radio’s Reporter at Large, as she’ll soon sit down and chat with Jake Furby and, last week, met with Kate Lock. Join us to hear about combating the bad things while keeping your cool. Well, sort of.
