Sunday Whatthehellany

Some leisurely listening for a Sunday.

This digs a little deeper into the myth constructed around Rosie the Riveter,  brought back briefly into the public consciousness by Beyonce recently. Amongst other things covered is the tort of seduction, if you happen to be a fan of that patronising piece of law.

A look back at Twin Peaks and how it allowed David Lynch to become an unexpectedly influential part of American popular culture for more than a decade. Keep the entire Pacific Northwest weird.


If you listen to just one thing this weekend, make it this. No, seriously, just listen to it now. It’s about animals and people and conservation and the past and the future, awith a cracking musical accompaniment.

All 6 episodes of the BBC Radio 4 production of Terry Gilliam and Neil Gaiman’s book Good Omens have been broadcast. That means they’re available online for another twenty four days if you’re interested. I’ve only listened to the first one so far, but it sounds very good.
