When stalkers aren't stopped, the worst can happen. We hear firsthand accounts of how serious this can become. I talk to the parents of Alice Ruggles - murdered by her ex-boyfriend turned stalker, and Tracey Morgan, who's life has been destroyed by a stalking campaign lasting decades. We hear of the threat to our safety, our lives, and how we, and the police need to change how stalking is approached. LBC presenter Shelagh Fogarty shares her experience of being stalked, when a listener became obsessed and started to follow her. Stalking pushed her to the edge of coping. It's changed her forever and now she's trying to find a way to carry on. One in five women will be victims of stalking in their lifetime. We might think we're safe - but are we really? If you think you or someone around you is being stalked, please can the police or the national stalking helpline on 0808 802 0300.

SIMON CALDER is a travel broadcaster, journalist and podcaster in the UK. He writes and podcasts regularly for The Independent. I do quite a lot of coverage of travel turmoil. Simon reports from travel strewn locations which has made him a recognisable figure on UK television and as he and I podcast walked and talked our way through central London on the last Saturday in July during a national rail strike, it became very clear that people love to say hello to him, and enjoy his down to earth style and willingness to chat. I think we might be in for a transportational recession which is very dispiriting. During this episode, we talked with people, heard their stories, in amongst me hearing his own thoughts on hitch hiking, UK cities, beach cities, his first day trip to “exotic” Dieppe, why Italy means so much to him, the importance of tourism, why going to Maastricht might now be on his agenda for December, the closest he's got to riding in a Bentley and what he believes are the three key things we can all do to help our flying carbon footprint when we travel a lot. I fly a lot, so every time I fly, I must hitchhike at least once. Some would say that's a lame excuse for an offset. If you have to fly, Obviously only travel in economy class, Only carry cabin baggage, And fly direct Except when travelling a long way when you would increase the damage.

"He knows everything about me, he knows where to find me no matter where I go. The police know - yet he's a free man. The walls are closing in. I'm starting to crack - I can't do this much longer." LBC presenter Shelagh Fogarty shares her experience of being stalked, when a listener became obsessed and started to follow her. Stalking pushed her to the edge of coping. It's changed her forever and now she's trying to find a way to carry on. One in five women will be victims of stalking in their lifetime. We might think we're safe - but are we really?

Shelagh Fogarty's name and voice will need no introduction to many listeners and subscribers - she left the BBC and became the host of the lunch to teatime Slot on LBC back in 2014 and her warm tones and confiding and empathetic yet always authoritative manner have won her record audiences. As devotees will know, she comes from a large Liverpudlian family of Irish extraction and her many siblings all seem to work as nurses or coppers which came in useful when something truly difficult happened to her and a chronic unwelcome intruder infested her life, which she has made the subject of her new hit podcast about the crime of stalking called The followers.
With so much drama in the LBC... I mean... with so much world changing news, how do we understand apathy? How do we understand apathy as believers in Christ? ********************** NixMyth Podcast is the only podcast that exists to live truthfully in order to consistently connect you to Living Truth.

The Robert Ferguson Observatory, this year's non-profit beneficiary. The Wine Country Distillery Festival takes center stage on Brew Ha Ha with Harry Duke and Herlinda Heras today, with Lindsay Musco and Doralice Handal. Lindsay Musco is the founder of the Wine Country Distillery Festival and Doralice Handal is representing Les Dames d'Escoffier today. Together they are hosting the VIP section at the Wine Country Distillery Festival. Chris Matthise, from Sonoma Brothers Distilling is also in, with beverages. The Wine Country Distillery Festival is August 13 at the Luther Burbank Center for the Arts, on the East Lawn. This time it is an outdoor summertime event and this is a new location for them. They will have more vendors, a stage with live music, a cocktail competition and a silent auction to benefit the Robert Ferguson Observatory. Tickets for the VIP Oasis section are $123 and regular admission is $88. They also offer a designated driver ticket, for non-alcoholic consumption, at $12. Les Dames d'Escoffier Les Dames d'Escoffier is one of the only non-profit professional organizations that is focussed on women in hospitality industries. There are 43 chapters around the world with 2300 members and growing. The local chapter has 51 members and has just celebrated its second anniversary. Doralice describes how many members are donating their time and effort to the VIP tent. Julia Child was one of the founders of Les Dames d'Escoffier. In her time, there was a men's professional organization that excluded women, so she and her partners founded their organization and named it after Gustave d'Escoffier who was known for honoring women in the profession. The Wine Country Distillery Festival started in 2019. Lindsay Musco describes how she thought of the idea. With all the focus on wine and beer in Sonoma County, she thought the local distillers deserved their own event. All of the net proceeds go to a non-profit, and this year that beneficiary is the Robert Ferguson Observatory. The event takes place August 13, from 12-4 pm. Tickets are available at the LBC website or at their own site. Sonoma Brothers Distilling Chris Matthise runs Sonoma Brothers Distilling with his twin brother. They started in 2012, in Windsor. They only do about 1000 cases per year and they also work with some custom clients. He's a fireman and his brother is a police officer. They have a prominent role in the Wine Country Distillery Festival. As they start mixing some cocktails, we get to hear how the shaker sounds on a radio microphone. Herlinda has compliments for Sonoma Brothers Distilling who along with Sipsong Spirits are her local favorites. Tara Jasper, founder of Sipsong Spirits, will also be at the event. Tara Jasper and Sipsong Spirits were featured on Brew Ha Ha two years ago on this July 30, 2020 episode, which was soon after she won a double gold medal for Indira Gin. We got to hear the cocktail shaker in that episode too.
The Premier League launched as The Premiership in 1992 and football in England was transformed. But as we celebrate the 30th anniversary of the start of this global phenomenon, we shouldn't forget that football did exist PPL - Pre Premier League. In the decade prior to the formation of the league, the 1980s, football's fortunes ebbed and flowed, but it left an indelible mark on the players and supporters who fell in love with the game prior to its Premier League existence.It was a world of one club men like Steve Perryman and Trevor Brooking who were icons of the English game. But the fans still revered the greats of the past like Pele, Cruyff and Charlton who had forged their reputations in previous eras. New managers like Alex Ferguson were trying to make their mark, and established managers like Keith Burkinshaw were winning trophies but fearing for the more commercial future as new leaders in the boardroom - men like Irving Scholar at Tottenham and David Dein at Arsenal - were re-shaping the structure of the game in response to tragedy and opportunity, supported by advisors like Alex Fynn. Foreign players like Ossie Ardiles were starting to make their mark, and managers like John Lyall were assessing the merits of bringing more into the English game. Agents like Jerome Anderson were scouring Europe for new players whilst starting to support their clients' desire to secure a better financial present and future, and coaches like West Ham's Tony Carr were trying to develop the skills in players that seemed to be disappearing in a league that became more muscular and direct in style. Media coverage was limited, but a new breed of journalists like Henry Winter were joining the ranks of the football press to bring a new insightful style of match reporting, and radio stations like LBC - led by Steve Tongue - provided the best access to the Saturday experience in the home.LBC was also the place that my dad, Ken Goldman, began his football journalism career and his archive of interviews from this era provides an incredible insight into football in England in the 1980s. In this extended episode you'll hear from all of the people above, whether they were interviewed in the 80s or sharing their recent memories of this period. I fell in love with football in the 1980s, and it was a joyous and emotional journey of revelation and reflection for me to go back to the decade that provided the platform for the Premier League that is now celebrating another milestone. I hope you enjoy the journey too!Finally many thanks to everyone who contributed as an interviewee and who helped me to connect with so many insightful and helpful people.
The sacrament of communion was given to us by God as a means of His grace. In the Lord's Supper, Jesus is really and spiritually present to minister to us. We are confirmed in the faith and in all the benefits of Christ's death. We are nourished, sustained, and strengthened through receiving the bread and the cup. In other words, the Table is for our assurance and for our growth in the faith. Sadly, this is not how communion is typically talked about in the church. What happened? Why is it not talked about this way? In today's episode Jon and Justin have a theological, historical, and biblical conversation about communion as a means of grace. Semper Reformanda: Jon and Justin discuss Reformed worship--and communion as a part of that. In addition, the guys give some thoughts regarding churches that do not observe communion regularly.

The church HOLDS UP and DISPLAYS the Truth in two specific ways- First by holding fast to the teaching about Christ and His gospel and second, by living in a manner worthy of this glorious gospel- If EITHER of these fall away, the church is worthless, especially when one uses TRUTH to exercise REBELLION.
"The nightmares are intensifying, I can't sleep properly anymore. I'm getting pains. I'm struggling to cope. And then the nightmare comes to life.
