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

Ask York is a brand new show coming to Two Rivers Radio in 2018 that seeks to discuss this question by raising issues with an expert panel and maybe even come up with some answers – all while enjoying a drink and perhaps a bite to eat.

The very first edition will be recorded at Angel on the Green from 8pm on Wednesday 24th January.  Please join our live audience and bring a question for our panel!  There is seating for around 30 – so please arrive in good time to avoid disappointment.

Pete Kilbane, indie businessman and community activist will be your host and our chair.

The panel will include:

Kate Pickett – Professor of Epidemiology, University Champion for Research on Justice and Equality, and Deputy Director of the Centre for Future Health;
University of York (also co-author of The Spirit Level: Why more equal societies almost always do better

Paul Healey – Conservative councilor for 8 years up to 2015 and Deputy Group Leader. Small business owner.

The show will not be broadcast live, but will be recorded and broadcast the following Monday 29th at 2pm. You will be able to listen to the broadcast here: www.tworiversradio.stream – and we will be archiving the show on this website, too.

The recording will begin at 8:30 and last for approximately 1 hour.

Each month, we will put together a panel of local politicians, journalists, campaigners, business-people, academics and experts in all manner of fields to be quizzed by a live audience.

This is your opportunity to ask questions of those in the City that are making and affecting the decisions we as a community all have to live with and to hear all sides of many contentious debates.

It would be great if those who wish to come and ask a question contact the show in advance so that we have an idea of numbers. If you could also indicate the topic that you wish to discuss (not necessarily the specific question) that would be very useful: email – tworiversradio@gmail.com

Although the recording begins at 8:30, you are welcome to arrive early. The Angel on the Green has a wonderful menu (available until 8pm) and a cosy bar serving an excellent range of hot and cold drinks, alcoholic and non-alcoholic. There will also be time after the recording for audience and panel members to mingle and further discuss the topics raised.

So whether you have a question about housing, business rates, students, alcohol licencing, local services, health, education, road maintenance, recycling, benefits, green economy, use of public space, development of brownfield sites, universal credit, redevelopment, creating a Yorkshire Assembly, employment, Coney Street, making better use of the river, tourism, cultural diversity, equality or anything else — please get in touch.
