The Poetry Show & Stairwell Books Presents…

On Monday at 1pm, The Poetry Show talks about FEAR followed by Stairwell Books Presents: Becca Miles

The Poetry Show Season One episode is on FEAR, which features Laurence O’Reilly and guest Neil Cathan. After that, Alan will sit down with Becca Miles, SWB editorial assistant and LARP expert. What is LARP, you ask? Tune in and find out! Or are you afraid…..?

The Poetry Show Season One Episode 26: Today’s show is about FEAR.

What makes you frightened? What IS ‘FEAR’? I once heard someone say “people lie when they’re afraid,” so before you lie, ask yourself: what am I scared of? Okay, maybe.

I have felt fear: walking down a street at night. Walking through a parking lot at night. Stairwells in big, emptyish buildings, at day OR at night. In fact I’ll do a poem (an old one) on the very certain, specific fears, that women can have. I once had a personal tragedy and so, I was left even MORE afraid after it. You’d think the worst has happened, and yet I actually was more fearful of it happening again, afterward.

Fear can be healthy: we are aware of our surroundings; we’re being careful. Every soldier is scared shitless, or they’re dead…. do you agree? Okay: Is fear GOOD? Should we have fear? Isn’t keeping an eye out for the sabre tooth tiger just part of being human?

The Poetry Show and Stairwell Books Presents: POLITICS AND BLAME, followed by a chat with John Wheatcroft

John Wheatcroft at Cull Valley Book launch

On Monday, 12th February, The Poetry Show episode is “Politics and Blame” (brought to you by the Department of Redundancy Department). Following that, former newspaper columnist, now novelist and playwright John Wheatcroft joins us to talk about newspapers, his first book Here In The Cull Valley, and his upcoming operetta, a work in progress being created with his wife Kay.
John Wheatcroft’s debut novel Here in the Cull Valley, is a ‘why-dunnit’ beginning with three deaths in an apparent road accident. It unfolds through articles and features written in two newspapers, one of them a ‘national’ publication which exists only in the head of its dying protagonist.
Despite the engagingly eccentric format, Wheatcroft has produced a novel which also plays by traditional rules of character and narrative, and features a grittily realistic West Yorkshire setting.
John says: “The story came first – then the format. I set out to tell the tale of a more-or-less decent man who is destroyed by a consuming passion for a woman he doesn’t even like, and by his struggle with a troubled past.
“So Here in the Cull Valley is not a book about journalism. However, the format I’ve chosen and my own experiences on newspapers do give me an opportunity to provide a picture of life on a regional publication in an industry which is on the cusp of real crisis.”

Before John sits down in the Corner Pin, enjoy the Poetry Show episode about POLITICS ….and by that, we mean our culture of BLAME. Frankly the show will just write itself and then throw a tantrum.
What is going on? What happened? I thought that old arc of the moral compass was bending toward justice but it’s taking a detour out past No Rights Lane and down by Blame The Other Blvd. Srsly wtf. And I REALLY thought we were past all the so-called race hatred stirred up lately. Oh, MY.
Its everyone’s damn fault except the real villains! Blame refugees…. but not war mongerers. Blame the desperate but NOT those who slashed the social safety net AND taxes. When you cut taxes? You replace them with FEEs. As an example, in the USA, that’s become the loss of fire fighters in small towns, and the rise of VOLUNTEER fire fighters.. .who work for FREE. These guys can just go burn their arses off for free. Guy will hear the alarm and think “Oh no, I can’t walk out on yet another shift! I need the money! Probably another brush fire” and no, it’s a house. Or a fee for fire fighting services…. when GW slashed taxes, towns had to instigate Fire Fees and if you didn’t pay? They’d spray the neighbour’s house in case your fire spread, but not put water on your actual burning house. Yes. This happened in Ohio. Woman didn’t pay the $75. Her house burned down while the fire crew watched.
Here, we close hospital wards, throw the ill people out, then arrest them when they beg for food money, or sleep rough. We slash tax on the wealthy and then complain that scroungers are not working at jobs that aren’t easy to find. We blame incomers for ‘stealing’ jobs but you can’t steal a job, like stealing an election or dodging tax in offshore accounts. Jobs are given out, by the one in charge. Tune in to hear us talk about politics and blame.
