We complete the reading of Antony's longform essay with the dramatic sinking and its aftermath. Ordinary humans of all levels of means and status fight for their lives against the slow, inevitable creep of death, and after the disaster there's equal measures of genuine humanity and ugly scapegoating   The story of R.M.S. Titanic and its unfortunate fate seems to have everything, both good and bad, in terms of how society views itself, its apparently superior relationship to nature and people’s relationships to their fellow man. This is a historical event but it’s also a story full of drama and human interest, and one that has been subject to constant revision in the 110 years since the ship sank.   I hope you enjoy the show!

The story of R.M.S. Titanic and its unfortunate fate seems to have everything, both good and bad, in terms of how society views itself, its apparently superior relationship to nature and people’s relationships to their fellow man. This is a historical event but it’s also a story full of drama and human interest, and one that has been subject to constant revision in the 110 years since the ship sank. Antony reads his own longform essay regarding the maiden voyage and sinking of the world's most famous ship, and there are interjections with further observations throughout.

Episode 33- The Corporation

Episode 33- The Corporation

2022-09-1401:18:37

In an edited version of what was originally a video podcast (link below), Antony and Luke Thompson dissect the seminal Canadian documentary written by law professor Joel Bakan and directed by Mark Achbar and Jennifer Abbott. Although often run by people with decent intentions, the modern corporation, complete with its legally-determined 'rights of a person', has become a monster that seeks to devour all that stands in its own way while polluting the environment and often ruining lives. You may be shocked to hear the documentary's diagnosis of this legal monster, which we outline during the talk. Some of the talking heads (including critics of the entity, corporation CEOs and everything in between) include Noam Chomsky, Michael Moore and Naomi Klein.   I hope you enjoy the show!

Nicnac Marsh has a podcast that delves into his psyche and the challenges of the complex business of existence in an ever-changing and increasingly confusing world. I was delighted to make 2 appearances on his show around this time last year so this latest offering is a compilation of the two. Our talk goes to many different places but there is particular emphasis on creativity and also discussions on how the world might actually work beyond the propaganda and some discussion of John Lennon, which was Nicnac’s original entry point to my work. There are audio clips included to complement the conversation and also musical contributions from Nicnac, myself and others  I hope you enjoy the show! If so, please subscribe, like, share etc...

The BBC, once considered the bastion of fairness in journalism, has in recent times begun to wear its propaganda on its sleeve. Antony attempts to give a fair but critical overview of their recent 'Unvaccinated' documentary and point out both the overt and more subtle propaganda techniques used in a piece of programming whose agenda is clear from the very start.    I hope you enjoy the show!

Yes Minister, which later became Yes Prime Minister, was a BBC sitcom that ran from the late 1970s to the late 80s. On one level it was an extremely well-scripted and funny comedy, but it also offered a very profound and only slightly exaggerated look at the very interesting but also rather dark and slightly insane way in which we and our lives are governed by those at the top of the power game. Indeed, it seems to get more and more relevant as time goes on, and this podcast explores the various levels of the show and the way in which its message seems to have been somewhat lost in the comedy aspect of it. This is mostly a solo effort from Antony but there is a coda included which includes 'spiritual brother' of this podcast Julian Charles of 'The Mind Renewed'   I hope you enjoy the show!

On this episode, Antony discusses 'Life And Life Only' on the podcast about podcasts known as 'Pods Like Us', hosted by 'Marv' Quibell   Marv and Antony get into some LALO topics including self-coaching, self-education and conquering (and embracing) your fears, as well as some discussion of social compliance and the limitations of mainstream media.

In what will hopefully be an inspiring edition of the podcast, documentarian Simon Weitzman joins Antony to talk about depression (and hope) from a variety of angles. We talk about some of our own experiences and then look at this thorny topic from the perspectives of creativity, diet, sleep, technology/social media, music, comedy and the importance of perspective itself. We also give book & other recommendations and discuss various coping mechanisms.

Patrick Humphries wrote the first biography of Nick Drake in 1997. To celebrate the 25th anniversary, Patrick spoke to Antony about his memories of writing the book and we also discussed the many Nick Drake myths and his music, life and legacy.

In this final part of our look at the highly-recommended 1998 book, Antony reads extracts related to bringing about change in a realistic way, dealing with anger & anxiety, building self-esteem, mindfulness/meditation, and the basic spiritual values that can lead to a truly spiritual life (with no necessity to move to Tibet and become a monk!) East meets West as Tensin Gyatso, better known as 'The Dalai Lama' (in fact the 14th Dalai Lama), and American psychiatrist Howard Culter exchange ideas on what constitutes happiness and how we can train our minds and alter the human outlook that shapes our perceptions of events and the world itself.

Nick Drake was an English singer-songwriter whose work was only fully recognised long after his tragic, untimely death in 1974 at the age of 26. This podcast is a 2-part reading of an essay about Nick written by your humble host, and between the two parts Antony talks to master guitarist Kester Jones about Nick Drake's music and guitar technique, with Kester also providing demonstrations of songs using the legendary alternate tunings. There are also full interpretations of a couple of Nick's songs by Antony, Kester and Melanie Lawrence   Hope you enjoy the show! If so, please subscribe, like, share etc...

As the title suggests, today's episode looks at the methods of (often very subtle) suggestion used fairly openly by the powers-that-be to 'nudge' the public towards following certain policies in this most surreal of eras, which has been dominated by an unseen enemy and much public discussion about how to cope with it. There is some initial discussion of what propaganda actually means, as it has different strands and slightly differing definitions, depending on who you ask. Julian Charles and Antony navigate these choppy waters with a myriad of references, observations and ideas.   Julian's website is  https://www.themindrenewed.com/ and his version of this episode contains a multitude of links for further perusal https://www.themindrenewed.com/episodes/2020-21/14-episodenotes/1468-ep061n The music for the TMR podcast is Moment of Green by Antony Raijekov from the Jazz U compilation.   Hope you enjoy the show!

'Conspiracy theory', as previously discussed on the show, has become a weaponised term and often used sweepingly to discredit alternative viewpoints. At the same time there are plenty of wild theories that have no basis in fact. Ricky Green of the University of Kent joins Antony for a friendly debate/discussion about what is often a semantic and informational minefield. When does sceptical mean paranoid?

A lighthearted entry in the LALO canon as I read a story I wrote in 2013 about a rather surreal night in the world of Table Tennis, a fine sport that I played a lot as a youth.

This episode is a reading of the short but powerful 1935 book 'War Is A Racket', written not by a conspiracy theorist living in his parents' basement (admittedly, they didn't really exist in 1935!) but by a highly-decorated Marine Corps Major General. I intersperse it with a few comments of my own and the reading is followed by Mark Twain's 'The War Prayer' and Antony's song 'Lessons of War' If you like what you hear, please subscribe, like, share etc...

I'm joined by Harry from the 'Harry's Moving Media' you tube channel to discuss in depth our collective favourite episode of the classic Charlie Brooker-conceived 'Black Mirror'. Since 'Nosedive' was created, we've seen China introduce a social ratings system but could it happen in the West? (or has it already?). We go more or less scene by scene to dissect the obvious and subtle elements contained within and then offer some advice as to how we could all prevent a 'Nosedive' reality (links to Harry's work below).
