PLANT-BASED NUTRITION FOR WELLBEING –CONFUSION or CONFIDENCE?
Vegan, vegetarian, and plant-based diets are buzzwords nowadays. There is so much, often very conflicting and contradictory, information in all sorts of media, including social media about the effects of our nutritional choices on our physical, mental and even emotional health and wellbeing in general.  Come to this talk for a bit of myth-busting and science, ideas and information. Bring your questions for the Q&A session at the end of the talk – I promise that it will be both useful and fun!

The Poetry Show & Stairwell Books Presents…

In just 5 short minutes, The Poetry Show, Season 2, Episode 6 will discuss MACHINES with Neil Cathan and Becca Miles. Then in Stairwell Books Presents: we actually have Susie Williamson!

Today’s show is about MACHINES

I was trolling thru my poems, the old snippets of stuff, the finished stuff, notes and so on, and I discovered, I don’t write about machines!! At all!! Very funny. Maybe cars, and I might do a poem about riding on a bus past some hot dry scenery in Cyprus; and I have a piece about bells.
But most of what I do doesn’t require more equipment than a pen or a magnifying glass. Well okay and a camera: that’s indispensable.
I do write on a computer and I used to feel very creeped out by leaving the word processor behind, and that in itself was a jump from carbon paper and a type writer.

In examining skeletal remains, I use simple, old fashioned things: calipers and camera, books, and paper. Even analysing ancient DNA the way my friend Rika did it (in 2002, 2003) involved a gel, and running electrical charges over samples. Is that steam punk?

Next up, Stairwell Books Presents: Susie Williamson, who has now enjoyed two smash success book launch events for RETURN OF THE MANTRA, her fantasy novel that examines environmental destruction, greed and human rights. But in an adventure story! Not too preachy, just a great, rollicking ride.

Don’t forget to join Declan and I at True Story Cafe, Friday, 22 June, for an open mic about sleep. Restful, wonderful, necessary, sleeeee………………………

Schedule – 04/06/18

The Poetry Show & Stairwell Books Presents

The Poetry Show  –  1-2pm

The Poetry Show talks about GRANDPARENTS followed by Stairwell Books Presents: Declan Minskip & barriers to writing: how can we surmount these?

The Poetry Show Season Two Episode Two is about our grands: the ones we inherit from our parents, the ones we find, the elders we may eventually become.

After that we have a Stairwell Books Presents discussion about writing, and barriers we may face before we even get started. Two Rivers producer Declan Minskip bravely endures Rose’s questions (eeek) (only kidding. I’m not scary….am I?) with planned input from Emily Drew. Can depression stop creativity dead or can we harness the isolation and introspection of at least a milder depression to tap our thoughts? No one will suggest we just “snap out of it.” Mental health issues will affect most of us at some point in our lives.

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
