Background Briefing. The Bird and the Businessman. I am angry!! This is appalling. I have written to the Minister and Shadow Minister. And while I’m thinking about it, I’m angry about the proposed freeway in the Edithvale wetlands too.
Revolutionspodcast Episode 9.14 The Ten Tragic Days. OK, so President Madero was democratically elected, finally breaking the hold of Porfirio Diaz over Mexico. He only ruled for 15 months before he was deposed by counter-revolutionary forces emboldened by US Ambassador Henry Lane Wilson. A pretty depressing episode really, especially the care with which it was made to look ‘constitutional’. I need to find a podcast that makes me laugh, I think
Rough Translation Intruders. Argentian daytime television program ‘Intruders’ was tacky, daytime television (that everyone watched but no-one would admit watching) with a long-standing, smirking, somewhat sleazy male host and a procession of women in high heels. Then, things changed, as the show began voicing feminist ideas. A fascinating podcast.
