We will continue to promote events, gigs, music, comedy, happenings and more via our social media channels.
We will be updating and improving our website over the coming weeks so please do keep checking in and if its down, don’t worry – it’ll only be temporary.
Two Rivers Radio will be back soon! Bigger and better than ever!!
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
