The Reverend Richard Coles is a prolific and hilarious Twitterer, and a sardonic radio host on the BBC. But the Anglican vicar is also openly gay, living with his partner. Faith and fame in the form of a guest like no other, this week on Tapestry.
"The Student’s Wife" is from Raymond Carver’s first story collection, Will You Please Be Quiet, Please, published in America in 1976. You could say it’s from Ray’s "early period" – written possibly as early as the late 60s, when he was one side or the other of 30 years old. Its verbal resources are spare, direct, rarely polysyllabic, restrained, intense, never melodramatic, and real-sounding while being obviously literary in intent. (You always know, pleasurably, that you’re reading a made short story.) These affecting qualities led some dunderheads to call his stories "minimalist", which they are most assuredly not, inasmuch as they’re full-to-the-brim with the stuff of human intimacy, of longing, of barely unearthable humour, of exquisite nuance, of pathos, of unlooked-for dread, and often of love – expressed in words and gestures not frequently associated with love. More than they are minimal, they are replete with the renewings and the fresh awarenesses we go to great literature to find. When they were first published in Britain by Collins Harvill, they made a great sensation that quickly spread all over the world, and made Ray (who was lovable, anyway) adored as the great story writer of his generation. Which he was. And is.
With multiple new ways of listening to sound, whether via your phone, an iPod or your laptop, this week we ask whether radio has a future. Its demise has been foretold many times in recent decades and yet radio has managed to renew itself. But is it facing its biggest challenge yet?
Slightly worse for wear after having lunch with Alice Cooper at the Q Awards, Richard is delighted to welcome a man he thinks might be him from another time stream, David ‘Mitch’ Mitchell. He’s certainly met his match in pedantry and both men accidentally reveal some shocking details about their respective psyches. Never have two men discussed at such length the vagaries of choosing between a ham hand and a sun lotion arm pit. And that is GUARANTEED. The Peep Show stationery cupboard, romantic subterfuge and the Daily Mail readers’ internet comments are all up for discussion and we’ll find out how an early discussion about Eric Morecambe almost brought the pair to blows. Did Rich really meet some Shreks and a Justin Lee Collins in the street? And what was Tim from The Office like before he became Tim from The Office? Is Richard as bitter and mean as he seems and will he ever get a Googlewhack audience? What’s it like to play Aerosmith at table tennis? Will Rich ever forgive his mum for her Brideshead Revisited Alfresco trump? Why don’t the audience understand any of Richard’s obscure 1980s references? What would you do if God granted you the power of having exactly the same hands as Hermione from Harry Potter? And just how many David Mitchells are there anyway? It’s a marathon of a podcast, but there’s no cheating and we both stay in it for the whole thing. It’d be nice if there was a happy ending. But there’s a slightly unhappy ending. See if you can make it to the ending.
It might seem hyperbole to claim, as many Wagnerites do, that The Ring Cycle is "The Greatest Work of Art Ever." But the grandeur and power of this monumental work have permeated our culture from Star Wars to Bugs Bunny to J.R.R. Tolkien.
Rich and his wife have made the ultimate commitment: they’ve been through their DVD collections and are getting rid of any duplicates. Some lucky audience member is going to win them all! But before that it’s time to talk to the star of The Calcium Kid, Peter Serafinowicz. Fans of Star Wars will be creaming out of their arm pits when they hear his tales of working with George Lucas and having to pay to go the premiere. Astonishing stuff. Rich provides an alternate reading of Darth Maul for the next director’s cut. There’s talk of zombies and Tony Wilson, Terrance Stamp and Will Arnett and lots of inside gossip about working on US and UK TV. And someone is going to win a copy of East is East. C’mon it doesn’t get better than that.
Mark Colvin started at the ABC in 1974 and worked his way up to foreign correspondent - covering many of the major international events of the late 20th century. On a trip to Zaire and Rwanda to cover the Hutu-Tutsi massacres, Mark contracted Wegener’s Granulomatosis - a chronic and life-threatening disease. He hovered near death for weeks before successful treatment with a new drug saved his life - but it couldn’t save him from many hours each week on dialysis. Mark’s own experience has made him a outspoken critic of the low rate of organ donation in Australia, where the average wait for a new organ is between four and seven years. His illness means he’s no longer able to travel, and talk to people on the street - the part of journalism he loves. Mark has become an avid user of Twitter which he loves as an immediate way of discovering information and disseminating it to his 28,000 followers. Donate Life website. .
» #331 The End of the Road for “Cul de Sac”Deconstructing Comics: A podcast about the craft of comics
As Richard Thompson’s strip Cul de Sac ends, Tom Spurgeon joins Tim to bid it a fond farewell. We discuss some favorite moments, compare it with other classic strips such as Peanuts, examine what Thompson (and any other relatively new creator of newspaper strips) has been up against as technology and economics team up against print media, and — Hey! Watch out for the UH-OH BABY!!
