Information Takeaway

In this weeks show Juliet will be chatting to HR specialist Siobhan Clarke who will be discussing wellbeing in the workplace, what we can do to take better care of our selves and the use of Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) in her work.

Accompanied by great music from the 80s up to the present date.

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………………………

The Poetry Show 2.4 is on Gender (a controversial concept) & is followed by Stairwell Books Presents: Composer Nick Williams.

The Poetry Show 2.4 is on Gender (a controversial concept) & is followed by Stairwell Books Presents: Composer Nick Williams.

Last week we slipped in the episode on Sleep (S2.5) AND on Friday June 22, we’re having SleepEasy at True Story Café! Declan Minskip and I will host a low-key, friendly open mic for stories, poems, tales and yes… even lullabies about sleep. Or insomnia. Or peaceful things. Think: Hot (soy) Chocolate, lots of candles, and maybe even wearing comfy clothes as we share restful thoughts in our northern city that doesn’t get all that dark this time of year. Especially right around the longest days of the year.

But first up on Monday… a discussion on Gender.

This episode features Kit Marshall as co-host, Becca Miles, and Rose & Alan.

I start off talking about gender roles, and normative behaviour and the difference – and there is one! – between gender and biological sex. The poem I’ll do is based on poems written by a well-meaning guy in the early 2000s. He ran an open mic in Borders, in Stamford CT and that’s where I met Alan. This guy was a decent man but OH MY he thought rigidly about ‘men’ and ‘women’ and is the sort of person who makes sweeping statements, with conviction, along the lines of “Women do this and Men do that” and “All women want this”, and so on. Ghastly. So, I’ll read a poem from 2002 that replies to such biological determinism. Then I’m turning this over to Kit who will talk about gender more coherently than an old-school physical anthropologist who looks at skeletons and tries to determine PROBABLE sex. But I’ll never be able to tell what someone’s gender was. Like disability and race, gender is a social construct.

After The Poetry Show: Composer Nick Williams.

From Nick’s online bio: “Nick Williams studied music at York and Huddersfield universities. In 1982 he co-founded Soundpool, an organisation of York-based composers and performers. In 1989 to 1991, Nick was composer and performer with Snapdragon Circus, a company which brought together theatre, dance, circus and music and toured extensively with them.

“His music draws on minimalism, modernism and the immediacy of post-punk to create what The Times called ‘a hyperactive…postminimalism’ that has affinities with the urban energy of New York’s Bang On A Can composers and the rhythmic conceptualism of the Hague School.”

Let’s find out how circus and composing go together, and how we can all bring a bit of hyperactive postminimalism into our lives.
