If I sound a little distracted during this show, it’s because I was maniacally hitting refresh on my computer as the Brexit results poured in, and British, primarily English, voters got restless legs and decided to bolt on the half-century project of the European Union. The BBC finally called it for #Leave just as as I was coming off-air. Whether this event proves a push-back against the neo-liberal project, or just a sad and alarming ethno-unravelling of Europe, is yet to be seen, (the latter, methinks) but it made for a pretty good hour of radio, if I may say so. Please listen and enjoy.
With one thing and another, I have fallen considerably behind in the posting of shows, so I’ll post two together here, one from late November, the other mid-December. The earlier program posed the question, ‘are you a biscuit’s half-empty kind of person?’
No such pessimism in the second show, just holiday season cheer and a nod or two in the direction of Zappadan. Personally, I think Movember should be rolled forward into Zappadan, keep those whiskers a few extra days and then shave them, with all due solemnity when the clocks toll midnight on Bummernacht (Dec 4).
