Episode #949: Various Monsters
First Broadcast: 2/6/23
For the 2023 Academy Awards, Everything, Everywhere, All at Once led the pack with 11 nominations, while The Banshees of Inisherin and the latest rendition of All Quiet On The Western Front had 9 nominations each. From there, we jumped around to such topics as Jojo Rabbit, Wonder Woman, Generation War, the 1930 version of All Quiet On The Western Front, the BBC series Being Human, Howard Zinn's damning judgment of World War One, how progress doesn't always move in a straight line, whether or not we're already in a new Dark Age, how too many people are too willing to kill each other, how Tyre Nichols' death this year and the events of January 6, 2021, and the ridiculous number of mass shootings in this country are some of the latest examples of the latter, and how Florida's efforts to ban AP African-American studies and all books in public school libraries are recent examples of the former. Sheesh, we're all over the map in this one--but what else is new?!?
So, what is Free New York anyway? The simple answer is that it's a
this neat little
public access TV show on
Manhattan Neighborhood Network which I co-produce with the
tremendous help of my camerawoman/editor/everything else,
Kim. The complicated answer
is that it's a project of mine to broadcast opinions and events which
don't always appear within "the mainstream media" (like The New York Times,
the major networks, local radio, etc.), and so far I think it's been working.
If you think I'm doing a good job--or not--and you feel
like sending me snail mail, the address is:
Free New York
P.O. Box 20945
Tompkins Square Station
New York, NY 10009
You can also email me at email@example.com, which should get to me a lot faster than the snail mail.
