Jeremy SwiftTake a walk with me down Fascination Street as I get to know Jeremy Swift. You may know Jeremy from Downton Abbey, Apple TV's Ted Lasso, or the Wachowski Siblings' epic Jupiter Ascending. But you may not know that Jeremy is arguably a more talented musician, than he is an actor.Just kidding. He is superb in both endeavors!In this episode, we chat about how he came to be an actor, and some of his first roles. I mean he toured with a cabaret troupe that played shows in various prisons! Holy Moly! Of course, we discuss some of his experiences on the previously listed projects, and a couple of others. I ask him what it is like to work with his wife on set, and he spills the beans on Ted Lasso season 4!Jeremy also shares the story of why he chose to get his Sag / Aftra card, and his upcoming film: "Descendants 4: The Rise of Red". Next we get into music. Jeremy started playing music at a very early age, and we definitely dive into that aspect of his creativity. Jeremy shares stories of his punk phase, seeing The Sex Pistols live, and his thoughts on the "Oi!" movement of the late 70's. Jeremy has a new album out called "Songs of Escape and Endless Night", which is catchy as hell. We discuss a couple of the tracks from that album, and he lets me play my favorite song from it. Jeremy shares his love for David Bowie, building synthesizers with his dad, and Christo Fernandez working on Jeremy's new album.Follow Jeremy Swift everywhere.See Jeremy Swift in everything.Listen to Jeremy Swift on Spotify.This show is part of the Spreaker Prime Network, if you are interested in advertising on this podcast, contact us at https://www.spreaker.com/show/4068452/advertisement

Cars from the 1950's and 60's that you've probably never heard of. Do you think you know about classic cars? What about rare cars? Some car buffs might recognize the brands Frazier or Devin but mention "Grantham" and they might think you are talking about Downton Abbey. What about Allied, Glasspar, Ferber, LaDawri or Voodoo? We speak with Geoff Hacker and Mike Puma of Undiscovered Classics about their passion for limited production vehicles from the 1950's and 60's. We find out about sports cars, streamliners, RV's and even race car transporters that were conceived and built by individuals and small companies with bodies typically made from fiberglass. Join us to learn about our guests and their passion for finding, researching and restoring these sometimes one-of-a-kind gems.

In the final episode of the first series, Downton Abbey faces many changes as the First World War looms. Cora's pregnancy, Mary and Matthew's engagement, Thomas and O'Brien's schemes, and Sybil and Gwen's ambitions are all affected by the events of July 1914. Main Cast and Crew: • Hugh Bonneville as Robert Crawley, Earl of Grantham • Elizabeth McGovern as Cora Crawley, Countess of Grantham • Michelle Dockery as Lady Mary Crawley • Laura Carmichael as Lady Edith Crawley • Jessica Brown Findlay as Lady Sybil Crawley • Dan Stevens as Matthew Crawley • Maggie Smith as Violet Crawley, Dowager Countess of Grantham • Penelope Wilton as Isobel Crawley • Jim Carter as Charles Carson • Phyllis Logan as Mrs. Hughes • Brendan Coyle as John Bates • Joanne Froggatt as Anna Smith • Rob James-Collier as Thomas Barrow • Siobhan Finneran as Sarah O'Brien • Lesley Nicol as Mrs. Patmore • Sophie McShera as Daisy Robinson • Rose Leslie as Gwen Dawson • Brian Percival as Director • Julian Fellowes as Writer Significant Events: • Mary learns that it was Edith who revealed her scandal with Kemal Pamuk to the Turkish ambassador, and retaliates by sabotaging Edith's engagement with Sir Anthony Strallan. • Robert is reluctant to fire Bates, even after O'Brien and Thomas produce a letter accusing him of stealing from a previous employer. Anna discovers that Bates took the blame for his ex-wife Vera, and Robert is pleased to hear the truth. • Thomas, frustrated by his failure to get rid of Bates, and sensing war on the way, joins the Army Medical Corps. • Sybil helps Gwen get a job as a secretary in London. • Cora announces that she is pregnant, which puts Mary and Matthew's engagement in doubt, since the baby could be a male heir. However, O'Brien causes Cora to miscarry by leaving a bar of soap on the floor, out of spite for mistakenly believing she is being dismissed. • William punches Thomas for making insensitive remarks about Cora's loss. • Matthew decides to end his engagement with Mary, feeling that it was only based on pragmatism and that she would have changed her mind if a son had been born. • The episode ends with the announcement that Britain has declared war on Germany.
*SPECIAL EPISODE: RWR BOOK CLUB* This week, we read The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah This novel follows two sisters, separated by years and experience, by ideals, passion and circumstance, each embarking on her own dangerous path toward survival, love, and freedom in German-occupied, war-torn France. It shows the side of the war that is seldom seen: the women's war. Sierra Marshall, love story aficionado and two other very special guests: Claire (our RWR Book Club fearless founder) and Marlee (the one who seems to mic drop in every episode she appears in). In this episode we cover: The powerful writing that is Kristin Hannah - and why I am very much obsessed with her. Why the ending frustrated most of us and what we wanted to see instead. How the strength of women continues to amaze us. Open your book and press play on a podcast episode that will have you climbing a mountain in order to read this book (not really, but we hope you'll enjoy it as much as we did). Mentioned in the Pairings section of the podcast: DRINK: French 75, Espresso Martini, Irish Coffee TV SHOW - Wynonna Earp, The Handmaid's Tale, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, Bluey, Downton Abbey, Peaky Blinders BOOK - The Diamond Eye, Night Witches, The Book Thief, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society MOVIE - Harriet, The Book Thief *** Once you're done listening, hop onto our Instagram and TikTok @rwreadspodcast to give us your thoughts on the discussion and the book. We look forward to hearing from you! * Disclaimer * At Red Wine Reads, we want to engage in the stories of people from all kinds of backgrounds and experiences. The value of books lies in the power of storytelling and sharing a range of perspectives. We don't want to just read what we know, we want to read stories that open our worldview. And in turn, that means getting into challenging, rewarding conversations. But we are not experts in any field — literature, race relations, politics, etc .— and we know that our reviews of these books come from a place of privilege. We encourage our community of readers to add to these conversations with their own thoughts, critiques, and questions. We want to open up a safe place for people. That being said, we also realize that getting into race, sexuality, gender, and other difficult topics can be triggering. We aim to include content warnings whenever they are applicable but we are not perfect. So as we continue to do our best, know you have the room to tell us when we can do better and even, if you want to, share resources with us. Let's learn, grow, and have fun together.

In this week's episode of Downton Abbey, Sybil's interest in politics lands her in trouble, Bates makes a shocking revelation about the wine thief, Edith finds a new suitor, Carson worries about Mary's reputation, and Sybil is injured in a political disturbance. Main Cast Hugh Bonneville as Robert Crawley, Earl of Grantham Michelle Dockery as Lady Mary Crawley Jessica Brown Findlay as Lady Sybil Crawley Laura Carmichael as Lady Edith Crawley Brendan Coyle as John Bates Joanne Froggatt as Anna Bates Jim Carter as Mr. Carson Phyllis Logan as Mrs. Hughes Rob James-Collier as Thomas Barrow Crew Creator: Julian Fellowes Director: Brian Percival Writer: Julian Fellowes Original Air Date: October 31, 2010 Sybil's Political Activism Sybil has been increasingly interested in politics lately, and she attends a rally with Branson. However, her father, Lord Grantham, is furious when he finds out and forbids her from attending any more political events. The Wine Thief The mystery of the wine thief has been plaguing Downton Abbey for weeks, and it finally comes to a head in this episode. Bates is accused of being the thief: he knows who the wine thief is, but he refuses to tell anyone else. He then hands in his notice, saying that he can no longer work at Downton Abbey with the thief still there. Edith's New Suitor Edith seems to have found an unexpected admirer in Sir Anthony Strallan. Sir Anthony is a wealthy landowner who is interested in courting Edith. Edith agrees to go on a date with him. Mary's Reputation Carson receives a letter informing him of the rumours that are circulating about Mary. The letter says that Mary is being talked about in town for her relationship with Mr Pamuk. Carson is worried that the rumours will damage Mary's reputation. Sybil's Injury Sybil goes to the counting of the votes for the local election. When things get rowdy, she is knocked unconscious. Branson is blamed for her injuries, but Matthew comes to his defence. Matthew Proposes to Mary The episode ends with Sybil recovering from her injuries and Matthew proposing to Mary. But will she accept?
In this week's episode of Downton Abbey, the Crawley family and the servants prepare for the annual flower show. But even as they enjoy the festivities, they are also dealing with some serious challenges. Isobel is upset to learn that Countess Violet has won the Grantham Cup for Best Bloom for the past 10 years, even though Molesley's father grows the best roses. Violet denies any wrongdoing, but Isobel is not convinced. Isobel is a kind and compassionate woman, and she believes that Molesley's father deserves to win the award. She is determined to find out the truth, and she sets out to investigate. Daisy is still shaken by the events of the previous episode, when she witnessed the death of Mr. Pamuk in Lady Mary's room. O'Brien and Thomas continue to scheme against her, and they try to get her to tell Lady Edith about Mr. Pamuk's death. Daisy is scared and confused, and she doesn't know who to trust. She is afraid that if she tells anyone what she knows, she will be blamed for Mr. Pamuk's death. Bates is framed for stealing a snuff box by O'Brien and Thomas. Anna and Bates are able to clear Bates' name, but the incident leaves them shaken. Bates is a good man, and he is innocent of the crime. But O'Brien and Thomas are determined to ruin his life. They will stop at nothing to get what they want. Lady Mary is still dealing with the fallout from Mr. Pamuk's death. She is worried that her reputation has been ruined, and she is reluctant to marry Matthew Crawley. Lady Mary is a strong and independent woman, but she has been through a lot in the past few weeks. She is not sure if she is ready to move on with her life. Sir Anthony Strallan arrives at Downton Abbey as a potential suitor for Lady Mary. He is everything that Matthew is not: old, stuffy, and not very attractive. Lady Mary is not interested in him, but her mother, Lady Cora, is determined to see her married. Lady Cora is a loving and supportive mother, but she can be a bit overbearing at times. She wants what is best for her daughter, but she needs to learn to let her go. The episode ends with the flower show. Isobel is overjoyed when Molesley's father wins the Grantham Cup. Lady Mary is also happy, as she realizes that she does not need to marry Sir Anthony Strallan to be happy. She can be happy on her own terms.

I speak with Jeff Tucker about his recent article, "Downton Abbey, the Corruption of the Great Families, and the Future of Freedom."We talk about Downton Abbey, its insights into the role of the "great families" in a free society, and also the massive transfer of wealth and power - from private to public - that took place during the period chronicled by the show, and which continues in spades in the 21st century.We discuss the actual workings of a free society - something most Americans and Britons alive today have little direct experience with. We also discuss the "corruption" of the great families, and how the classes that have traditionally upheld individual liberty have now almost entirely defected to the side of the centralized state....and we talk about what comes next.Jeff is Founder and President of the Brownstone Institute.

Welcome to the Downton Abbey Podcast, where we recap and discuss every episode of the hit period drama. Today we're talking about Series 1 Episode 3, which aired on October 10, 2010 on ITV and January 16, 2011 on PBS. • This episode is also known as "The One With Pamuk", because it features one of the most shocking and scandalous events in Downton Abbey history: the death of a Turkish diplomat in Lady Mary's bed. • The episode begins with the arrival of Evelyn Napier, a handsome and wealthy suitor for Mary, who brings along his friend Kemal Pamuk, a dashing and charming Turkish attaché. Mary is instantly smitten with Pamuk, who flirts with her at every opportunity, while ignoring the jealous Napier. • Meanwhile, downstairs, Gwen, one of the maids, reveals her ambition to become a secretary and has bought a typewriter to practice her skills. She receives a letter from a potential employer, but hides it from the rest of the staff. Sybil, the youngest and most progressive Crawley sister, discovers Gwen's secret and offers to help her with her application and reference. • At night, Pamuk sneaks into Mary's bedroom and seduces her. She initially resists, but then gives in to his advances. However, in the middle of their passionate encounter, he suffers a fatal heart attack and dies in her bed. Mary is horrified and calls for her mother Cora, who enlists the help of Anna, the head housemaid, to move the body back to Pamuk's room. They manage to do so without being noticed by most of the household, except for Daisy, the kitchen maid, who sees them carrying the corpse. • The next day, Pamuk's death is announced as a natural cause and his body is taken away. Mary is traumatised by the experience and fears that her reputation will be ruined if the truth ever comes out. Cora and Anna assure her that they will keep her secret, but they are also worried about the consequences. Daisy is confused and frightened by what she saw, but keeps quiet for now. • The episode also features several subplots involving other characters: Bates tries to cure his limp with a painful device that Mrs. Hughes helps him remove; Edith spends a pleasant day with Matthew, who is still oblivious to her feelings for him; and O'Brien schemes to expose Gwen's secretarial aspirations and sabotage her chances. What did you think of this episode? Did you like Pamuk as a character? Do you sympathise with Mary or blame her for her actions? How do you think this scandal will affect her future? Let us know your thoughts in the comments or on social media. And don't forget to tune in next time for Series 1 Episode 4. Thanks for listening!
Matthew Crawley and his mother, Isobel, arrive at Downton Abbey to begin their new lives as the new heir and chatelaine of the estate. Matthew is immediately overwhelmed by the size and grandeur of the house, and he struggles to adjust to his new role. He also finds himself at odds with the other members of the family, who are still coming to terms with the fact that he is now their heir. Isobel, meanwhile, is determined to make her mark on Downton Abbey. She is a strong-willed woman who is not afraid to speak her mind, and she quickly clashes with the Dowager Countess, Violet. The two women have very different ideas about how Downton should be run, and they soon find themselves at odds. Downton Abbey is a British historical drama television series created by Julian Fellowes. It is set in the early 20th century and follows the lives of the Crawley family and their servants at Downton Abbey, a large country house in Yorkshire. The series premiered on ITV on September 26, 2010, and ran for six seasons, concluding on August 25, 2015. Downton Abbey was a critical and commercial success, winning numerous awards, including 15 Primetime Emmy Awards, three Golden Globe Awards, and two BAFTA Awards. The series was also a ratings success, becoming the most-watched British television series of the 21st century.
Welcome to the first episode of "Downton Abbey -The Podcast," where we dive into the world of one of the most beloved period dramas of all time. In this episode, we'll be discussing Season 1 Episode 1 of Downton Abbey, where we're introduced to the Crawley family and their staff, and witness the devastating news of the Titanic sinking. We're then introduced to the Crawley family, the Earl of Grantham (played by Hugh Bonneville), his American-born wife Cora Crawley (played by Elizabeth McGovern), and their three daughters, Mary, Edith, and Sybil. We also meet the staff who run the estate, including Mr. Carson, the butler, Mrs. Hughes, the housekeeper, and Mr. Bates, the new valet. The episode takes a dramatic turn when news of the Titanic sinking reaches Downton Abbey, and we see the effect it has on the family and their staff. The Earl and Cora are devastated to hear that their cousin and heir to the estate, Patrick Crawley, was among the casualties. This news puts the future of Downton Abbey in jeopardy, as there is no male heir to inherit the estate. Season 1 Episode 1 of Downton Abbey sets the stage for the rest of the series, introducing us to the characters, the setting, and the challenges they'll face. We're left with a sense of anticipation for what's to come, and the knowledge that the future of Downton Abbey is far from certain. Join us next time as we continue to explore this beloved period drama.
Jeannette talks to renowned theatre director, Luke Kernaghan, on the ways in which he has harnessed the power of his creativity to unlock success, the value of connections and how networking has accelerated his journey of growth, and why following your passions is the key to lifelong happiness when it comes to your career choice. KEY TAKEAWAYS There is no substitute for authenticity, and you cannot truly be yourself until you've asked the internal questions required. Sometimes the forces that drive us are difficult to identify, and manifest themselves through instinct. We should always listen to our inner voice. If we are able to identify our passions, and forge a career in that sector, then working becomes a privilege, and fulfilment is far easier to achieve. Theatre in particular, thrives upon community. Those who are in the field, raise each other up and encourage support from all sides. BEST MOMENTS 'Your energy is incredible. You clearly love what you do' 'My journey was not linear' 'You don't go into theatre to make money!' This is the perfect time to get focused on what YOU want to really achieve in your business, career, and life. It's never too late to be BRAVE and BOLD and unlock your inner BRILLIANCE.

Often the starting point for one of my books on the history of Highclere Castle is a conversation with David Rymill. David is our archivist and there's not much he doesn't know about the family history thanks to the extensive archive of documents and letters dating back to when the family first acquired the house in the 17th century. I find the archive here at Highclere fascinating so I was grateful to David for sitting down with me to discuss his work.

Welcome home, beloved listeners! After a month and a half long unexpected hiatus (oops?), Sneople has returned with an episode about a banger of a film that they discussed briefly on the last ep - Lair of the White Worm! Skipping What We Sneep this week (they're going to do a whole what we sneep episode next time), they get right into trying desperately to explain the plot of the film, but get easily sidetracked by talking about the effects as well as how truly bizarre the movie is as a whole. After also discussing how good looking everyone is and getting distracted again talking about Shakespeare (shocking), they finally get back to the plot and any warnings you'll want to be aware of before getting into this film. They highly recommend giving it a go anyway - it's so weird, even the scary stuff barely seems to register. Also, they talk about the monthly Sneople movie nights happening on the Infinity Break discord! If you want to vote on the monthly movie pick, you'll have to follow the IB patreon (which also has LOTS of sneople extra content - https://www.patreon.com/InfinityBreak) but if you just want to join us for the film itself, join our discord! (https://discord.gg/F4u5nytrk3) Fun fact: this ep is exactly as long as the movie itself (give or take a few seconds)! Start them at the same time for a knock off commentary track.

For much of the history we're discussed on this podcast, marriages were the best way to advance one's social position. In the Gilded Age, a special subset of advantageous marriages emerged: in which wealthy American heiresses paid generous dowries to marry into the European nobility.
