  1. The great debt debate | RSA Replay

    r versus g? Or a Debt Jubilee?

    David Graeber’s bestselling book “Debt: The First 5000 Years” revolutionised our understanding of the origins of money and the role of debt in human societies. But intellectual revolutions take time, and David’s sudden and untimely death left this revolution unfinished.

    David’s widow Nika Dubrovsky has established ‘The Fight Club’ to keep David’s unique way of challenging conventional wisdoms alive after him. Each ‘Fight’ will pit leading advocates of different visions of how society functions against each other.

    The inaugural fight, to mark the first anniversary of David’s death, is a debate between the renowned economists Thomas Piketty, author of “Capital in the Twenty-First Century”, and Michael Hudson, author of “And Forgive Them Their Debts”. Thomas Piketty wrote the preface to the tenth anniversary edition of “Debt: the First 5000 Years”. Michael Hudson’s anthropological research into the origins of money and debt in ancient Sumeria was the basis of much of David’s analysis in that book.

    Join us for an unmissable encounter between two celebrated and highly influential economic thinkers as they debate: what is money and what is debt? What are the most serious problems of today’s finance-capital economies? And what are the best remedies?

  2. The Joy and Genius of Erroll Garner | Open Source with Christopher Lydon

    The Joy and Genius of Erroll Garner

    This show first aired on December 17, 2020.

    Erroll Garner, the jazz pianist, is undergoing an upward revaluation of the sort that artists dream of: a reputational transition forty-some years after he died. In his time, mid-twentieth century, Erroll Garner was a pop star on records and concert stages worldwide. He could make the piano sound like a big band, or an orchestra; and he composed enchanting new music on the fly. It was tune-centered, accessible—danceable, even. Label it easy jazz, if you weren’t listening too carefully. In the long aftermath, it’s players and critics who missed him the first time who’re finding much more in the Garner legacy: genius, for sure, but also truth, beauty, and miracles of spontaneity in a man of deep understanding.

    Zooming with Robin D. G. Kelley.

    The afterlife of an artistic legend is the thread running through this hour’s musical conversation. The artist in question is the one-off and self-taught jazz pianist Erroll Garner. He arrived from Pittsburgh on 52nd Street in New York as jazz was being retooled in the 1940s. He made one of the all-time best-selling jazz concert albums in the ’50s, toured the world in the ’60s, and died in the ’70s. Forty-some years later, respect for Erroll Garner is going deeper. It was always safe to say he was a jazz genius, but is it enough?

    The cultural historian Robin D. G. Kelley at UCLA is the biographer of another piano giant Thelonious Monk. Around the Garner legacy, Robin Kelley’s has been engaging eminent players in today’s music in a series of podcasts. With the likes of Vijay Iyer, Chick Corea, Jason Moran, and Helen Sung (all pianists) and the drummer Terri Lynn Carrington, Robin begins each time with the question, “Who is Erroll Garner to you?”

    And here’s a Youtube playlist of Erroll Garner, starting with “Misty”:

  5. Oishii: The History of Sushi

    Sushi and sashimi are by now a global sensation and have become perhaps the best known of Japanese foods—but they are also the most widely misunderstood. Oishii: The History of Sushi (Reaktion Books, 2020) reveals that sushi began as a fermented food with a sour taste, used as a means to preserve fish. This book, the first history of sushi in English, traces sushi’s development from China to Japan and then internationally, and from street food to high-class cuisine. Included are two dozen historical and original recipes that show the diversity of sushi and how to prepare it. Written by an expert on Japanese food history, Oishii is a must read for understanding sushi’s past, its variety and sustainability, and how it became one of the world’s greatest anonymous cuisines.

  7. Roxanne Harde and Janet Wesselius Apr 8, 2021 Consumption and the Literary Cookbook

    Consumption and the Literary Cookbook, edited by Roxanne Harde and Janet Wesselius (published 2021 by Routledge) examines the ways in which recipe authors and readers engage with one another through reading, cooking and eating the foods contained within the pages of Literary Cookbooks. The editors define literary cookbooks as novels and memoirs that include recipes, cookbooks that include narrative, and children’s books that include recipes. Divided into three parts­– “Textual Consumption,” “Consumption and Community,” and “Cultural Consumption”– the collection explores a diverse cross section of cooking literature and food culture from nineteenth century manuscript cookbooks to cookbooks built on the narratives of childhood classics Alice in Wonderland and Anne of Green Gables. Through this assortment of historical documents and cultural touchstones, Harde and Wesselius and their contributors work to convince scholars of literature and food studies that literary cookbooks offer unique insight into the era, society, and region they represent. The collection creates a foundation for an in-depth study of consumption as it pertains to the intellectual consumption of information, emotional connection and release through empathetic consumption, and of course, the physical consumption of the edible results of the recipes contained within each book. Ardent cooks and cookbook consumers, Harde and Wesselius hope that this collection will liberate literary cookbooks from kitchen shelves and incorporate them into both literature and food studies as important tools for understanding culture and society.
