Worn: A People's History of Clothing (Vintage, 2022) by Sofi Thanhauser explores linen, cotton, silk, synthetics, wool: through the stories of these five fabrics, she illuminates the world we inhabit in a startling new way, travelling from China to Cumbria to reveal the craft, labour and industry that create the clothes we wear. From the women who transformed stalks of flax into linen to clothe their families in nineteenth century New England to those who earn their dowries in the cotton-spinning factories of South India today, this book traces the origins of garment-making through time and around the world. Exploring the social, economic and environmental impact of our most personal possessions, Worn looks beyond care labels to show how clothes reveal the truth about what we really care about. This interview was conducted by Dr. Miranda Melcher whose doctoral work focused on post-conflict military integration, understanding treaty negotiation and implementation in civil war contexts, with qualitative analysis of the Angolan and Mozambican civil wars.

We get up close to our soil in this month's Organic Gardening Podcast with a fascinating discussion about protecting soil over winter, warming up wormeries and creating veganic compost.  Fiona joins Chris Collins to share details of her trip to a new compost demonstration site in Cumbria. And discusses how she looks after her wormery in winter to protect her worms and make the most of her vermicompost. And we learn how ‘spraing' can affect potato tubers. Dr Anton Rosenfeld pays a visit to Becca Stevenson, head grower at the certified organic Five Acres Community Farm, in Ryton, to find out what's involved in a community supported agricultural (CSA) farm. Becca shows Anton how CSA farms allow communities to buy shares in what they produce to get local produce on to local plates, cut down on food waste and increase community engagement with food growing. She talks about the challenges of pests and diseases and getting through the hungry gap with bundles of stored and preserved produce.

Embarking from the infamous Viking Cross – where Steve guides us through a series of remarkable carvings – we set out on an autumnal wander over the meadows to Irton, and a second iconic cross. As we walk – down quiet bylines, and over a busy Irt and Bleng – we consider signs in the landscape; in names, in landforms, beneath our feet; that paint a dazzling picture of 1,000 years ago, and a thriving, if violent, kingdom based around a people who arrived from across the Irish sea, beached their boats and then settled their Herdwicks and slaves around a huge longhall overlooked by their Gods on Scafell and Great Gable.

Introduction Hosts: MrX Dave Morriss We recorded this on Monday September 12th 2022. We have a list of talking points each time and never get through them! Topics discussed Places visited: Lake District, England Loch Lomond, Scotland Stockbridge, Edinburgh Water of Leith, Edinburgh Death of Queen Elizabeth Died September 8th 2022 at Balmoral Castle, Scotland, aged 96 State funeral 2022-09-19 Navigation by phone: Dave's phone battery out of charge on the outskirts of Liverpool on the way to OggCamp. MrX's old Garmin GPS used weird routes when travelling Dave once met a lost driver going down Donkey Lane1 to the pedestrian railway crossing due to bad GPS directions Domestic stuff: Dave's house has been painted. It's covered in harling (aka rough-cast or pebble-dash in England) which has very sharp stones embedded in it, and this paint covers these sharp stones. Plumbing issues: stopping a dripping tap, replacing the washer, or with modern taps the module. Advisability of calling in a plumber! COVID-19, and related: The virus has not gone, even though there are many who pretend that it has. MrX and MrsX visited St Bees for a wedding with a Cèilidh and MrX caught COVID there, though it wasn't serious. MrsX did not catch it! Immunology is hard to understand! Some cold-like illnesses may be caused by other corona viruses and may help protect against SARS-CoV-2. Dave has an Immunology book, but hasn't read it yet! See the links for details. MrX mentioned Richard J Murphy in the context of being realistic about COVID-19 and continuing to take precautions. Reluctance to go shopping. Dave makes a weekly trip, wearing a mask. MrX uses Click and Collect. Dave has lost weight so some of his clothes are too big. MrX has trouble finding smaller sized clothes when shopping. Old technology: MrX recently found a box in his wardrobe with six Psion 3c Organisers in it, in various states of disrepair. From these a functioning organiser was made, which is in regular use. MrX used to have a Psion Series 3a but the hinge failed. Dave had a Psion Series 5mx for a time, as did MrsX. Dave's failed either because of a screen fault or a failure of the ribbon cable connecting to the screen. The Series 3c, and the later 3mx, have an Easter Egg available through a particular key sequence. This is a rendition of the anthem “Jerusalem”, and is included at the end of this episode (and is responsible for the show title). Dave had had a Psion Organiser II at work in the early days of organisers, but it was not particularly useful. MrX had an Atari Portfolio. He describes it as: a dreadful machine running DOS 2.11 It regularly crashed, losing all its memory. I decided to ditch it after having to type out my contacts list every time it crashed. MrX also had a Nokia N810, an Internet Tablet running Linux. Dave couldn't quite remember at the time of recording, but he bought a used Nokia 770 on eBay, which was the predecessor of the N810. This was also a Linux-based system, but it didn't last more than a couple of weeks sadly. Both bought - and still have - the ASUS Eee PC. Dave's is the 1005HA model. MrX still uses his from time to time Dave is thinking about installing a BSD flavour on his, but doesn't use it often. It currently has CrunchBang installed. Telegram: Dave runs it on his desktop (and laptop) as well as two phones. The phones run KDE Connect and are configured to tell the desktop when a message arrives! HPR New Year show: HonkeyMagoo (of the Linux LUGCast podcast) does a lot of the work with the recording in conjunction with Ken. He divides up the audio into shows, and in past years has prepared show notes. This year a LUGCast listener HPLovecraft did the notes, and they are very good! Postscript MrX found the Easter Egg, mentioned during our chat, on his Psion Series 3C, recorded it via Audacity, and sent me the resulting Easter Ogg! It has been appended to the main recording. Links Various Wikipedia links: Lake District, England Loch Lomond, Scotland Stock Bridge, Edinburgh Water of Leith, Edinburgh Death of Queen Elizabeth St Bees on the coast of Cumbria, England Harling wall covering (aka rough-cast) Cèilidh, a traditional Scottish social gathering Book: How the Immune System Works, Lauren Sompayrac, ISBN 9781119542124 Richard J Murphy Item mentioned in the blog Organisers (all Wikipedia links): Psion Organiser II Psion 3a Organiser Psion 3c Organiser Psion Series 5 Atari Portfolio Nokia N810 Nokia 770 ASUS Eee PC Instant Messaging: Telegram Owned by a Russian billionaire.

This week Charlotte Smith looks into the pressures food producers are facing - despite the rapid rise in food prices. From pork and vegetables to organic dairy, farmers say the costs they are facing are outweighing the amount they are being paid. How much consumers should expect to pay for food was the topic for panellists of a digital conference organised this week by the The Rural Policy Group. It is a think tank set up to campaign for better representation of agriculture in politics. Speakers at the conference discussed what things reinforce consumers expectation of low-priced food, and how that could be changed in order to make pricing fairer for all. And we delve into the world of a still relatively niche farm animal - the goat. From a herd of 250 goats in the hills of Cumbria, and semi-wild goats being tracked in north Devon, to the pomp and pageantry of the King's Proclamation.

There's been some very welcome rain in parts of the country. But the on-going drought has made life very difficult for farmers. Some don't have enough grass in their fields to feed their livestock and are using up winter stores already. Now George Eustice, the Environment Secretary, has announced that Defra is relaxing some of the rules for agri-environment schemes, meaning farmers who are paid for managing some of their land for nature, like wildflower margins around fields, will be allowed to cut or graze it earlier than usual. But what will this mean for the wildlife it's supposed to support? Continuing our week looking at sheep, Caz Graham visits a Cumbrian hill farmer in the northern fells of the Lake District, to hear his frustration at the length of time it's taking to get the post-Brexit farm support schemes up and running. Farm incomes in the uplands rely heavily on the old EU Basic Payment Scheme, and many are worried how they will survive after they are phased out completely in 2027. Sheep farming is controversial, with some conservationists thinking the uplands would be much better off without them. We speak to Professor of Upland Landscapes at the University of Cumbria in Ambleside, Lois Mansfield. Presented by Caz Graham and produced by Beatrice Fenton.

Join us for the fantastic story of Hannah Davison who gave birth to six children on board the barque Alice A. Leigh (renamed Rewa in 1921), a steel barque which sailed the world between 1889-1930. The largest vessel ever built at Whitehaven in Cumbria, this four masted barque plied the world's sailing routes with a variety of cargo before joining a New Zealand wool merchant's fleet in 1921. Her story is particularly rich because of the family of Captain Davison who lived aboard. His wife Hannah was mother to their six children and kept a detailed scrapbook of their lives. Their large maritime family was well known and featured regularly in local newspapers. The scrapbook now survives in the collections of the New Zealand Maritime Museum/Hui te Ananui a Tang-aroa. Check out our YouTube page for a video exploring the life of the ship and the Davison family. Finally, damaged by a storm, the Alice A. Leigh/Rewa was sunk as a breakwater in Hauraki Gulf, Aukland, New Zealand where her semi-submerged wreck can still be easily seen and provides a tourist attraction for snorkelers and divers.

Serhii joins Dan to tell the tale of some of the nuclear disasters that shook the world. From the 1957 fire at the Windscale facility in Cumbria which burned for three days and released radioactive fallout, to the 1986 crisis at Chernobyl, Serhii shows how the same story of nuclear ambition, often clouded by political and economic motives, is tragically repeated time and again.Produced by Hannah WardMixed and Mastered by Dougal PatmoreIf you'd like to learn more, we have hundreds of history documentaries, ad-free podcasts and audiobooks at History Hit - subscribe today!

Melvyn Bragg and guests discuss the impact of David I of Scotland (c1084-1153) on his kingdom and on neighbouring lands. The youngest son of Malcolm III, he was raised in exile in the Anglo-Norman court and became Earl of Huntingdon and Prince of Cumbria before claiming the throne in 1124. He introduced elements of what he had learned in England and, in the next decades, his kingdom saw new burghs, new monasteries, new ways of governing and the arrival of some very influential families, earning him the reputation of The Perfect King.
